Easter egg assembly

These plastic hollow Easter eggs have arrived in the post just in time for the end of term Easter services at the First schools. They come in lots of delicious bright colours and are lovely for little hands to hold.  I picked up this fab idea from the diocescan children’s advisor.  You fill each egg with a different part of the Easter story.  As they are opened in order, the kids can help tell the story.  I am going to number them all and fill a basket with them.

So far I have collected a little toy donkey and cockerel.  I have cut up a Palm cross and turned it into a mini version.  I am going to put a nail in another, bread in another.

I am now on the look out for other little bits to help tell the story.

My inner child is having glorious fun.

Thanks.
