We had a special treat this afternoon. Ella's mom offered to come in and tell the Easter story by using "resurrection eggs". It was a great object lesson for the girls! Each egg had a different object inside related to the Easter story. She definitely had the girls' attention. :-) They couldn't wait to see what was in each egg and pass it around. Of course, the best part was finding out that the last egg was empty, reminding the girls that Jesus rose from the dead - the tomb is empty!!!
After the story was over, the girls were able to decorate Easter egg cookies. They had a lot of fun adding icing, sprinkles, and little candies!
