Sermon for Kids Telling the Easter Story A hollowed egg contains messages that tell the Easter story.

materials Egg (Hollowed out) • •

Carefully poke 2 holes in an egg, one at each end, and blow out the contents. After it has dried inside, take a lot of 1/4 inch wide slips of paper, write on them such phrases as ,”Jesus loves you,” “Jesus died for you,” ‘Jesus lives” and so on. Thread the slips of paper into the egg. You can get many inside.

• Ask children what they think of at Easter. Many will say, Chocolate, Eggs, Candies, Bunnies etc. • (some will make the right connection) Hold the egg and talk about how the egg was an Easter symbol – portent of new life and that Jesus’s rising from the dead meant that we too could have new life. • I then said, “If ever I heard somebody give me the right answer right away, I would clap my hands ….” clapping my hands and squashing the egg.

• The children’s faces will be a mixture of horror and glee as they imagined your hands covered with goo. • Instead, imagine their surprise when the egg contains, not yolk and stuff, but messages that tell the Easter story.
