Easter Tradition: Stories of Jesus





For 12 days leading up to Easter, we open 1 plastic egg. Inside the egg is a small picture of a story of Jesus (I found a lot of beautiful pictures in church magazines) along with a word strip naming the story of Jesus and a scripture and song. We take time to really discuss the story of Jesus and what it means to us. There are so many stories of Jesus! I'm thinking of adding a few more days... maybe 20? Anyway, here's what we have so far! Enjoy!
