Wooden Eggs and a Wonderful Story to Share for Easter

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


It is getting closer to Easter now, and though that will definitely look different for us this year than it ever has before, we do still intend to celebrate. One way we will be doing that is with the Easter Story Egg, which is a kit that includes one story book that details the meaning behind the holiday, and a 7-piece, real wood nesting egg set. The eggs are opened one day at a time, starting on Palm Sunday and going through Easter Sunday when the tomb was found empty.




Each of the eggs is painted with a picture relevant to the day that coincides with story. Above you see Palm Sunday, depicted by a palm leaf. Then you would open that egg, the next day, to find the House of Prayer egg inside (also shown above) and so on and so forth.


Check out this video, if you'd like to learn more. I appreciate that they company has put a lot of effort into finding a quality way to share the story of Jesus' resurrection with small children, in a way that is easy to understand. It is sure to be something they look forward to each day (or night) as another egg is opened and the story continues.
If you have a high regard for the fact that the nesting eggs are made of real wood, like I do, you may also want to pick up a set of the wooden candy eggs that open to hide little items for an Easter Egg hunt. I also think these would just be gorgeous to put in a decorative bowl on the table. Because they are made of high quality material, the eggs will look good year after year.


You can find either of these (and other items as well) on the Star Kids Company website, or in select stores including Hallmark, which has become one of my favorite stores to shop in lately (when I say lately, I mean prior to being told to stay inside because of the pandemic).


Yes, Easter will be different this year; we won't be dressing to the nines to go to church, headed to the park for the big helicopter drop of plastic eggs, or doing an Easter Egg hunt with friends and family. It will still be nice though, and the meaning behind it never changes. Two things we will be doing the same, are celebrating the fact that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, and telling the story to the kids with The Easter Story Egg (which has become a tradition for us). What will you be doing for Easter this year?
