Easter eggs are an example. Eggs really have nothing to do with Jesus, but I grew up hunting for them and love that memory. Family Life created an outreach to use Easter eggs to teach the gospel story to children. They are called resurrection eggs and we LOVE them!

|Jimmy, age 4. "Look, I found one!"|
|Age 4: full basket, found the first toy to tell the story|
* BTW-I have several friends who have made homemade versions of these and even give them as gifts. fun family project!
