When I was working at Rachel Sims Baptist Mission a few years ago, a mission group brought some Resurrection Eggs to do with the kids. I had never heard of them before, but went and bought some ASAP after that day. This year, I shared them with Anna Beth and Lynnsie. I cannot write the words that accurately describe the experience of sharing this with Anna Beth and Lynnsie. Anna Beth knew so much that I was already telling her about each egg. There are a dozen eggs, each one with a different object in it that symbolizes a part of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection (thus the name Resurrection Eggs). Here is what is in each egg and I've put in parenthesis AB's response as she saw each of them - mostly for me to remember her understanding at this age of Christ's death and resurrection.
