I downloaded the He's Risen! Eggs for our children's message on Palm Sunday and Easter. We will also incorporate a set in our between services Easter Egg Hunt allowing the children who find one of these "special" eggs to trade it in for a prize. Hopefully the children will be able to tell us what the egg stands for by the picture alone in "exchange" for the prize.
This is a great family project too! The adults can read the text, while younger children decorate the eggs and older children put the Mobile together--all participants will learn the main theme for each egg.
String eggs on to the Mobile during Holy Week.
What you need: He's Risen! Eggs, string, small hole paper punch, wooden dowel.
What you do: Using colored pencils, markers, or crayons, color the egg patterns, punch holes, string to dowel as pictured, above.
On Palm Sunday study all the text for Egg # 1, and then decorate the Egg. This is the first item to hang on your Holy Week Symbols Mobile.
Monday -- Study text and decorate Eggs 2 and 3 -- add to Mobile
Tuesday -- Study text and decorate Eggs 4 and 5 -- add to Mobile
Wednesday -- Study text and decorate Eggs 6 and 7 -- add to Mobile
Thursday -- Study text and decorate Eggs 8 and 9 -- add to Mobile
Friday -- Study text and decorate Eggs 10 and 11 -- add to Mobile
Saturday -- No new egg -- review text for all eggs and admire your Mobile
Easter Morning -- Study text and decorate Egg 12 in a glorious way -- add as the "crowning" touch to your Holy Week Mobile!
You could also watch The Passion of the Christ film by Mel Gibson. (After I saw the film, I came home and read each of the Gospels from the garden through the burial. This would take you even further, from Palm Sunday through the Resurrection.)
May God Bless you!
