Teachable Moment An Egg-stra Special Lesson after Easter
Here is a fun idea my husband and I used last year to talk with the kids about Easter and the gift of God’s Holy Spirit.
What do we celebrate at Easter? We celebrate that when Jesus died on the cross for us- he didn’t stay dead. Jesus beat Satan! Jesus beat death!
On Easter we celebrate that Jesus’ tomb was empty! (open an empty easter egg) Because Jesus is the Son of God he has amazing powers to do so much more than we can dream of. Yes, Jesus died at Easter time but the best part of His story is what happened after He died on the cross!
The empty egg can reminds us of what we celebrate at Easter- Jesus is alive. Jesus died on the cross but He didn’t stay dead. Wow! Talk with your kids about how powerful Jesus is. He can do things that we can’t. Why? Because He is the Son of God.
Now, why did Jesus do this?
The candy in the eggs can remind us of this EGG-stra special gift that God has given us! The gift of his Spirit. There is nothing sweeter! 🙂
