Easter Story in Eggs

I found this great idea to go along with the Resurrection Eggs (or Easter Story in Eggs) that I bought a few years ago. We have done this for several years and my kids really enjoy opening the eggs and seeing what trinket is inside. The only problem is they don't use the King James Version, so I printed out my own scriptures.

This year we are going to go a step further, and create a lapbook in the same style. Check out Jamin's cute lapbook where I found the great printables and got my inspiration.

Since I am doing this project with 6 kids, I spent a bit more time to prepare everything so that it will go smoothly and everyone will be able to decorate eggs to their hearts content.

Here is the link to the Easter Symbols Printables on the Christian Preschool Printables website.

I found some great easter eggs to color on the following website - I downloaded them, opened them up in photoshop and resized them all to approximately the same size before printing them out.

I then created a template to trace onto construction paper to make the mini books. I still have to resize the text to fit inside the eggs, maybe we'll add the text on Thursday.
