But we also talked about how Jesus died for our sins and then came back to life.
Each egg holds a symbol that tells part of the Easter story, from the cup Jesus shared with His disciples to the crown of thorns the soldiers placed on His head.
Each page of the book tells you which egg to open and then explains the item inside.
Amelia loved opening the eggs as we read the story. She asked lots of hard questions, and we sometimes we struggled to answer them. But she clearly understood a lot, too.
I bought my Resurrection Eggs after Easter last year. They were on clearance at a local superstore, so now is the time to look for them.
I know that next year Amelia will look forward to getting out the Resurrection Eggs almost as much as she looks forward to coloring Easter eggs and sharing her candy with her mama. Perhaps by then we will have found a way to explain that everyone who "dies-es" doesn't come back to life on Easter Sunday.
Note: I'm just a happy customer here. No one provided me with any incentives to write this post.
