Today for Storytime we read Legend of the Easter Egg. It was such a wonderful story that shows children the what the Easter egg represents. It was funny because I never thought of it before. I of course know the true meaning of Easter...our Savior died for our sins and arose! What a blessing! But I had never really thought about what an Easter egg could represent...Its just an egg right?
So why do we hide Easter eggs? Is it just a secular way along with the Easter bunny to celebrate a Christian holiday?
"Just as a chick breaks out of an egg, so had Jesus broken free of the tomb of death. Easter eggs remind us that Jesus conquered death and gives us eternal life."
What a great way to tell our children about Easter eggs. This time of year, we all want our kids to know the TRUE meaning of Easter...Resurrection Day. Share with them, The Legend of the Easter Egg!
