- printed these two pages
- found 12 plastic eggs
- kept (or emptied) an egg carton
1. print the free download (Click here to print.)If possible, print on card stock to make them sturdier. The first page contains the 12 cards you will use to tell the Easter story. Each card has the picture and word(s) to describe that part of the story. The second page has a short version of the Easter story to tell to your children when they open the corresponding eggs.
2. cut out the 12 cardsI like to use a paper trimmer to cut them, but scissors would work fine too. (This is the paper trimmer I have.)
**3. totally optional–laminate the cards**I like to laminate mine because I have a laminator and it makes the cards sturdier. However, this step is optional because you have this download to print as many as you need if something happens to them! (I have this laminator and love, love it!)
4. collect 12 plastic, Easter eggs and egg cartonI found a bag of 42 eggs for $1.97 at Walmart. (I made a set for each of my 3 children.)
5. write the number on the eggsI used a permanent marker to write the number on the outside of each egg. I also like to write the number inside the corresponding spot for each egg in the egg carton if they get dumped out!
6. put the cards in the eggsNow you are ready to put the cards inside the correct eggs and snap them shut.
7. share the Easter storyHave your child open and egg and you tell them the part of the Easter story that goes with that picture. Next time, have your child tell you the Easter story. Have you made these before? Are you going to do them this year? I’d love to see pics if you make them!
