Homemade Ressurection Eggs - Teaching Ideas

 Resurrection eggs are a fun tool to help teach about the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. There are commercially available sets of resurrection eggs that can be beneficial to use. I have chosen to make my own set because it was cheaper, and I had more control concerning what was taught.

"3 Days and 3 Nights" Teaching Ideas

The verse for this week is long, but it really spells out what is taught.  The theme verse isn't necessarily intended to be memorized, but instead to be repeated often so that the child can think on God's Word and consider it.

Theme Verse: “Just as Jonah was three days (sign for day with the number 3) and three nights (sign for night) in the belly (hold your belly) of the great fish (make a fish with your hands), so will the Son of Man be three days (sign for day with the number 3) and three nights (sign for night) in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 ESV

Have your child repeat after you and do the motions.

Declare God's Mighty Acts Part 2

The verse for a parent's heart this month is Psalm 145:4

Psalm 78 also tells parents to declare God's mighty acts.
We will not hide them from their children,
    but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
    and the wonders that he has done.
