Can you tell the story of Holly Week?  An easy and fun way to learn the story of Holy Week is to use symbols and eggs!  As the picture illustrates, take an egg carton and label 12 plastic eggs from 1 to 12.  Put the labeled eggs in your egg carton.  Starting with egg number 1 place the appropriate symbol in the egg that corresponds to the story of Holy Week.  Continue until you get to egg number 12.  What is in egg number 12?  Nothing!  Egg number 12 symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The tomb was found empty.  Try this at home with your children.  The symbols are below.  Be creative!

Egg Number 1:  Picture of a Donkey (Palm Sunday)
Egg Number 2:  Piece of Bread (The Last Supper)
Egg Number 3:  Picture of a Cup (The Last Supper)
Egg Number 4:  Picture of Praying Hands (Garden of Gethsemane)
Egg Number 5:  A Coin (Judas Betrays Jesus)
Egg Number 6:  A Feather (Peter Denies Knowing Jesus Three Times)
Egg Number 7:  A Nail (Jesus is Nailed to a Cross)
Egg Number 8:  Dice (Jesus’ Clothes are Divided)
Egg Number 9:  A Piece of Cloth (Jesus’ Body is Wrapped in Cloth)
Egg Number 10:  A Stone (A Large Stone is Rolled Across the Entrance of the Tomb)
Egg Number 11:  A Cotton Ball with Spice (Women Prepare to Anoint his Body with Spices)
Egg Number 12:  Empty (The Tomb is Found Empty)
