resurrection eggs

Since Easter is approaching, I thought I would share a great idea to do with kids to teach them the real meaning of Easter.
We do Easter baskets in Easter, but we focus on that it is the day that Christ rose and we celebrate that.  The eggs are numbered for 12 days , so 12 days before Easter we begin the story. 
                 Supplies:
 Egg carton
Plastic eggs
Items for the eggs
