Great Idea for a Sunday School lesson or at home

This was used at church today (31st) to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

You need 12 plastic eggs that come apart.
Inside each egg you put a verse of the Easter resurrection story and an item to represent that.
Number the eggs 1-12 with a marker, then hide them and get the children to hunt for them.
Once they have found all the eggs, open each egg in number order and read the Easter resurrection story from the pieces of paper.
Here is what you put in each egg and the Scripture to write on a piece of paper inside each egg as well.

#1 – a piece of broken cracker biscuit (Matthew 26:26)
#2 – 3 silver coins to represent 30 pieces of silver (Matthew 26:14-15)
#3 – 1 piece of purple cloth to represent the purple robes (Mark 15:17)
#4 – thorns (rose or from any bush) (Matthew 27:29)
#5 – scourge/whip (piece of thick string tied to a twig) (Mark 15:15)
#6 – Cross made of toothpicks (John 19:17-18)
#7 – 3 metal nails (John 20:25)
#8 – sign ‘King of the Jews’ (luke 23:38)
#9 – piece of sponge (Matthew 27:48)
#10 – spear (toothpick or straight nail) (John 19:34)
#11 – rock (Matthew 27:59-60)
#12 – EMPTY!! (Matthew 28:6)
