{12 Days of a Christ Centered Easter}



We were surprised last year when Nana and Grandpa came over and brought us these eggs. They were for the 12 days of Easter. Each morning we opened a new egg to find a treasure and a scripture that related to Easter. Our children looked forward to it every morning. Each of them took a turn to open an egg, Marc would read the scripture, then he would talk about the meaning and symbolism. It was a great way for us to remember why we celebrate Easter.  
 Doing this with my children brought back memories. My parents did this little activity with my family growing up so it was fun to see how much my own children loved it.


This is what each egg included so you can make your own 12 days of Easter.
