12 Days of Easter

I came across a festive idea here of how to incorporate the spiritual side of Easter into celebrating. Check out the details posts there, but I've compiled a quick list in case you want to do your own 12 days of Easter. (Even though we are already a few days into it, it's not too late!)

What you'll need: 12 plastic eggs, 12 objects listed below and a basket.

Day 1 -The Sacrament Symbolizes Christ's Sacrifice
Day 2- Betrayed for 30 pieces of silver
  • object in egg: 30 cents representing Judas' betrayal

Day3- Christ Willingly Suffered for Our Sins
  • object in egg: mini cup representing Christ drinking the bitter cup as he performed Atonement
  • scripture references: Matthew 26: 36, 39 , Alma 21:9
Day 4- Christ Heals the Soldier Who Comes to Arrest Him
Day 5- Even His Closest Friend Denied Him
