resurrection eggs
One of my favorite Easter traditions with my girls is pulling out the Resurrection Eggs set we own and to talk through the Easter story with them.

If you have never heard of Resurrection Eggs, you have been missing out! The set consists of a dozen colored eggs. Inside each one is a little trinket to symbolize the different parts of the Easter story. The eggs’ colors also fit with which part of the story they cover.

Resurrection Eggs come with a booklet so that you can read the Easter story while your kids open each egg, they also have a corresponding Bible verse to read. The little symbols in each egg really help the story sink in with children. We love to talk about how each item fits into the story. Now, my girls love to open the eggs and tell the next part of the story themselves!

If you are looking for a frugal way to do this, you and your children can make your own Resurrection Egg set.

This set would be fun and easy to make – or you could…

Win It!

10 winners will receive their own set of Resurrection Eggs.

    • Trina Chadwick

      I love getting the kids up Easter morning to find baskets and new easter outfits.

      Favorite memory—picking out a new Easter dress for church every year…..

    • Becky

      I remember getting up very early to go to a sunrise service when we were kids in Wyoming. The service was on a hill overlooking the town which seemed to make the sunrise even that more magnificent. I was probably only 10 at the time but I knew that day was very special.

    • Doeeyes67

      I just remember that every year, the “Easter Bunny” would always leave Peeps in my basket….I HATE Peeps…..but my mother would always tell me, that it was because the “Easter Bunny” knew that she loved Peeps…and then she'd eat them. :)

    • Tara

      I'd love these. My fave Easter memories involve going to church with my grandmother then having easter dinner with my family and digging into our Easter baskets lol

    • hiding real eggs at my grandparents house and almost always not being able to find one until a few days later, hysterical and gross.

    • Mmrossie

      One of my favorite memories of Easter is going to church with my parents. I do not think that we ever missed an Easter Sunday of church!

    • Ellisakpoe

      getting a new dress and celebrating the great resurrection

    • Laura Durden

      One of my family's favorite Easter traditions was to go through the Resurrection Eggs and go through the Easter story. Unfortunately, we had a fire last year and lost our set of eggs. Something that my children really miss.

    • Hlmobx

      My favorite Easter memory would have to be where we had a wooden cross at church at the alter. Everyone was invited to write something they needed to give over to the Lord and actually nail the paper to the cross. Seeing our “Shepherd” Pastor kneeling in prayer in front of that cross, covered with the whole congregations offerings to the Lord, is an image I will never forget. God gave him such a burden for His People.

    • Heather

      My favorite memory of Easter is the year we went down to my grandparents in the Florida keys. We had such a great time. Easter morning we woke up and my basket had been put in the oven. It was such a special time being with my grandparents and my family.

    • Aeparker80

      I remember the first Easter after my nephew was born on April 7. Such a sweet time!

    • Candi

      favorite memory was last year seeing my 2 year old so excited over her easter basket
      candi_r81@yahoo.om

    • Blessedndeed

      Easter time for us is all about family and LIFE !!! Life abundantly as well. We celebrate by gathering with family and sharing about God's goodness and how we can tell others about Him. We allow the kids to share what God means to them and what easter means to them. We love Easter time !

    • Highfillfamily4

      Being an only child growing up, my parents & grandparents were always subjected to hunting the Easter eggs that I hid for them….It was alot of fun for me to run all over the yard hiding them so they could find them!

    • Shannon

      My favorite memory of Easter is going to church early on Easter Sunday morning and wearing a pretty new dress. Getting a basket full of goodies and going to Grandma's after church for lunch. My cousins and I would hide easter eggs together!

    • Marrimekko

      One of my favorite Easter memories is of coming home on leave while stationed in Japan and meeting my newborn nephew for the first time and at the same time introducing my 8 month old son to most of my family (who hadn't met him yet, as he was born in Japan).

    • Danaemomof3

      Fancy Easter dresses, frilly Easter baskets and yummy family dinners and egg hunt at Grandma's. :*)

    • Brandy B

    • Bamamomof4

      I love Easter! I love the whole spirit of rebirth of our Lord Jesus and the reminder of how his grace saves us everyday. I love the flowers and trees and new life it brings. One tradition I started was a “nite lite egg hunt” for our older kids in the neighborhood. The little ones still do the daytime ones but my older kids were sad to be excluded in the fun. So, we hide eggs and once it gets dark they head out with flashlights ready to go! We have snacks and fellowship with our neighbors.

    • Magnet007

      A new Easter dress and church services at our old country church.

    • Bee

      Watching baby ducks follow their mother as I took a walk around a lake with our first child in a stroller.

    • Andrews07

      Dying eggs and baking Easter cookies with my grandchildren and daughters. They love it sooooo much!!!

    • Sam

      Watching my son hunt eggs for the first time!

    • Angel_ann

      My favorite Easter memories are getting my girls up to see their Easter baskets and new dresses.

    • Jennifersjordan

      has to be eating hard boiled eggs on my aunt's patio fully decked out in white patent shoes, gloves and a hat

    • Kennedy228813

      Favorite memory, is waking up early and switching the things out of my sister's basket and putting them into mine and giving her the stuff I didn't want. Once Mom found out I always had to switch them back ;)

    • Actually my best Easter memory was when my daughter first saw the Resurrection eggs at Antioch Baptist church in Bridgeton, NC she was 2 and she loved the story so much. I can remember her face to this day. She is now 14.

    • Jastamiller

      Wearing my Easter dress and always having the huge family lunch after church.

    • Candace

      My favorite memory is my Grandpa (who is no longer with us) showing the kids where the eggs were hidden.

    • Amy

      We went to my Grandma and Grandpa's house after church for a big family dinner and egg hunt for all of the cousins… my older cousins and I eventually became the “hiders” instead of the “hunters!”

    • My favorite Easter memory is when my great-grandma would wake me up and surprise me with her special Easter basket.

    • Karen

      It was so much fun shopping with my Momma – getting the “perfect” dress and then the “perfect” bonnet, little purse, gloves, lacy socks all to match!! Then going to church wearing that “perfect” outfit and hearing the Easter story. The afternoon was always filled with cooking out hotdogs and hamburgers at Shoal Creek with family friends and hunting eggs. Oh what SWEET MEMORIES!!

      • Karen

        I forgot – had to get the “perfect” patten shoes. LOL!

    • Terri Pappas

      My favorite Easter Memory is going to my Uncles house after church and getting together will all my cousins looking for eggs in the back yard. I always worked hard to find the biggest egg cause it had $5.00 in it as the grand prize, I got the golden egg twice and felt like a winner! Then enjoying an Easter Feast with my family!

    • Katie

      I remember as a kid my parents would always hide our Easter baskets and we would have to search the house. One year my sister and I found ours but my brothers was nowhere to be found. He eventually found it hanging outside the front door. As kids we thought this was the funniest thing ever. I also remember getting all dressed up in my Easter dress and going to church. Somedays I sure do miss being a kid.

    • JessC

      Favorite Easter memory – last year, when my husband came home from Afghanistan for R&R!

    • Colleengonzales

      my favorite is seeing the whole family get together and letting the fathers hide the eggs then the mom's get the kids ready and let them go. That way everyone is involved.

    • Amanda

      When I was younger my dad would go and purchase corsages for me, my mom and my sister to wear to chruch on Easter morning… it was so very sweet. He would always purchase one with an orchid for my mom. What's extra neat is there's a part in an Peter Cottontail book that read my son that mentions 'Peter' bringing an orchid for the Mommy… everytime I read it I'm reminded of the corsages that my dad gave my mom. Makes me smile!

    • DeDeBug88

      I would have to say hunting Easter Eggs outside (or inside on days it was rainy)

    • Kara

      getting all dressed up for church and giving my mom a corsage to celebrate the special day

    • sarah

      My favorite memories include going to Church & coloring eggs with my sisters & brother. I now have an eight month old son and I can't wait to color eggs with him and hide eggs so he can find them!! Having a kid is soooo much fun (most of the time ;)!

    • My favorite memory of Easter is visiting our cousins and putting on an Easter play. It was usually nothing to do with Easter, more to do with the circus and things like that! Still, it was the only time of the year we saw them routinely and I loved it! My boys are getting their first cousin this summer and I am excited for the fun they will have with him too!

    • mamac

      As a child, waking up Easter morning reading the Easter story, seeing my basket of candy and usually an Easter dress. Then finding the hidden eggs.

    • Jmflosc

      Last year I made a set of these eggs for my class at church. Would love to win a set. Thanks

    • Babyblue52528

      This is the first Ive heard orseen these… Wouldlove to have them for the kids.. one of my favorite memorys of easter is going to the park with my dads side of the family and always peeking to get more eggs and the prizes lol…

    • I loved dressing up and visiting family. My grandmother always had the loveliest Easter baskets prepared for my sister and I. Such precious memories.

    • Mscoggins

      My favorite memory of Easter was my dad giving each of his girls and wife a beautiful fresh orchid to wear to church. Even after we married he would bring them to our homes before church. Really miss that tradition now that he his in heaven. Always enjoyed the Easter service and family fellowship that came after church. Also the silver dollars that my uncle would hide in the prize eggs.

    • Catherine Drago

      The “easter bunny” always used to leave a doll for me in my bed on easter morning :)

    • THEEVANSFAMILY02

      My Favorite memory of Easter is when my Grandma would color eggs with us and everytime we colored one she would recolor it :)

    • Hitara

      My favorite Easter memory is when my oldest daughter was 2 years old and I was pregnant with my 2nd child. I was having to chase her all over the Easter Egg Hunt, and being almost 9 months pregnant, it was quite amusing!

    • Shaye

      My favorite memory of Easter was the only Easter my husband was at church with us…. he had a scripted part in our Easter Program and was so overcome by the Scripture reading that he couldn't get through it without great emotion and many tears.

    • Tiffany

      My favorite Easter memory was Easter 2008 when I was pregnant with my first child. That particular Easter was so special to me knowing I was only 2 weeks away from becoming a mother.

    • Cristierose54

      My favorite Easter memory is every year! I have 5 children so just seeing all their easter baskets displayed and their faces lighting up when they see all the goodies in them just makes my heart smile!

    • SmTownBigHeart

      My favorite Easter memories are when we have gone to Sunrise service on Easter sunday morning and the service is held outdoors. Hearing the birds chirping, I always imagine them as sending their praise to their Creator!

    • Lori

      Dressing my little girl up in her Easter dress and celebrating That HE is risen!

    • Gail

      My favorite Easter memory is coming home from church and eating dinner then we'd go outside to find the hidden eggs. Miss those fun times when life was so much simpler. :)

    • amy

      This sounds so neat:) My favorite memory is spending time with our family.

    • Ugadawgs1975

      When my twins were 10 months old for their first easter and were all dressed up in their little matching easter outfits and sitting side by side for a “perfect” picture. My son clothes lines my daughter as the camera flashed hence the picture with her laying flat on her back crying and him smiling at the camera. Funny memory now that hey are 4.

    • Maria

      Last year was the first year our son was able to participate in an egg hunt, and he had such a great time! And I loved seeing him so excited :)

    • Steffi_11

      My favorite Easter memory has to be Easter Sundays going to church with my family. We didn't have a lot of money but my brother, sister and I always looked like a million bucks especially for Easter. My dad was our church's music (and youth) minister and he always put on a fantastic cantata! He and my mom both sang like songbirds and they did a duet called “Calvary” almost every year when I was very young and I still remember the words to it, can still hear them singing it, and the words and meaning of the song are forever burned into my heart and spirit today as a 33 year old woman with children of my own. Although the Easter Bunny would come and that was always very exciting, I appreciate so much the true meaning of Easter Sunday and for my parents' love; it was through them I learned of my Savior's love.

      Happy Easter!!!

    • Lease

      Going to Sunrise services with my family and eating breakfast with them afterwards.

    • Waiting to Adopt

      My favorite Easter memory is the first Easter with my adopted daughter…wait…that hasn't happened yet…

    • My favorite easter was when my husband was home on leave from Iraq and we got to spend the day with all of his family and mine. It was so nice to be together and get to do a big egg hunt with all of our nieces and nephews.

    • Mikiesmomma

      My favorite memory is from last year, my son was 3. We got together with my best friend and her daughter and the kid's colored easter egg's for the first time. They grew up together, as we met when the kids were 5 mos. old. They are 6 days apart. It was so much fun!!! The look on their little faces was priceless when the egg came out colored. I will never forget how much fun we had. I can't wait to do it again this year! mikiesmomma@gmail.com

    • Toneydtt

      My favorite Easter memory is every year when the church is full for Easter Sunday!!!

    • Lizz

      My favorite memory of easter has to be when I was about 8 yrs old. My mom gave me the prettiest easter dress to wear, and she hid easter baskets for my brother and I, and THEN we got to color cute little eggs. I love these eggs though, now that I'm married and planning a family of my own, I can't wait to give my kids these joys, and this lesson!

    • This is my first Easter with my 4 year old, but before children I loved having the church teenagers over who's parents did not celebrate Easter. We would always cook and then eat together.

    • Corey G

      By far my favorite memory is going for Easter Egg hunts at my great-grandparents house. Such happy times.

    • Kristie

      I always enjoyed going with my mom to pick out the perfect Easter dress to wear Easter Sunday morning. I felt so special in my new dress. I also enjoyed the Easter egg hunts. Now, I get to enjoy all of these traditions with my family. Great giveaway! I purchased these for my children several years ago, but they have since lost several of the pieces. I would love to have a new set to share with them and use for my Sunday school class. Thank you!

    • Babrunson

      My favorite Easter memory is going to my grandmother's house after church for an egg hunt w/ my sister and cousins. After we found the eggs. we'd swing each other in the hammock (one person wraps up like a burrito, and the others swing her wildly until she calls for mercy… its actually pretty fun. At least it is when you're 10!).

    • Annandrichardestridge

      We would go to the Saturday evening service. It was a long service & I remember, when I was smaller I would like for all the bible readings to be over. But then they would do the High Mass and the church would go dark, and then there was a small light, a candle. And the priest would sing “Christ the Light” and we would sing back “Thanks be to God” and then that small candle was passed to the people and they would light their candles as the chant continued with “Christ the Light” and soon the whole church that was totally dark before, is illuminated with candles peircing that darkness. Somehow enduring the long readings made it worth it to expierence the Light piercing the darkness. I will never forget that or how wonderful and safe that made me feel, even in the darkness the kight was there to guide me.

    • Kelley

      My favorite Easter memories involve the beautiful dresses my mom made for me each year. As I got older she would let me pick the pattern and fabric. Lots of fun and they were always nicer than anything she could have bought.

    • LISA

      My favorite memory is taking my kids on their first easter egg hunt. Watching them get so excited about finding the eggs were priceless :)

    • Dmthomas98

      My favorite Easter memory is when I was a child and we headed out the door to go to church and their on our sidewalk was a REAL bunny cute as could be. He hopped over from the woods beside our house…it was so fitting for him to show up on Easter. As a kid, this was the best thing!

    • Alley27603

      My favorite Easter is when my youngest who's eight know received a package from his granparents and in it was a yellow ducky. He was only 1 year old and he still sleeps with it today. It's never left is side. We never could go anywhere's or to bed without ducky.

    • Lisa

      My favorite Easter memory is the Easter just before my mom died–I sat in the living room with her since she was bedridden and we opened the windows and the church down the street had loud speakers outside so we could hear her brother singing “Amazing Grace” at the Easter service–all the way down the street. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and Easter always reminds me of the circle of life and God's plan for us all!

    • Amy Hankinson

      My favorite memory was when I was a child and Easter happened on the same day as my birthday March 31st! I was so excited.

      **love to have a set of these eggs, the church has a set and I just love them***

    • Kediajpage

      My favorite memory is when my dad would put a real baby chick in a plastic egg and have the grandchildren to open the egg.The look on their faces…priceless.

    • Constance

      Last year was so far my favorite Easter. My husband and I celebrated Easter with our daughter for the first time. Also, it was his grandmother's 90th Birthday! It was a great day we shared with family

    • Nap1

      My oldest sons first Easter I was so excited to make him a BIG basket full of all kinds of candies and goodies and toys! Mind you he was only ten months old and could not have cared less. It was still fun to watch him toss it all on the floor!

    • Pauline

      A favorite memory is inviting away-from-home college students to our home to share our family's Easter dinner, and making mini Easter treat bags for them.

    • Deborah

      My favorite Easter Memory is looking for eggs outside at my grandmother's house with my cousins.

    • Jenniferlovescoupons

      My favorite memory that I look forward to every year is simply being with my family to celebrate the God. I love the spring smells and the beautiful grass and the special feeling I feel in my heart.

    • Aja143

      Mine is Easter morning going on a trip early in the morning. Afraid, as a kid, that I wouldn't get the same surprises we normally do. As we all, very tiredly, stumbled to the car early that morning, we found our treats sitting in our seats. I remember the stuffed animal rabbit I got and still have it!!!

    • Staceyb

      My favorite memory of Easter is when my dad and I were baptized together on Palm Sunday when I was 11 years old.

      • Kriss

        That is sweet.

    • Candace

      Each year, our church has an Easter Parade where the kids all walk thru the sanctuary dressed in their Easter outfits. Throughout all the time my husband and I were hoping to be parents I would watch my friends and their kids. This year I am excited because it will be the first Easter Parade for us and our twin boys. God is so good!!!

    • Keri Page

      my favorite easter memories are of getting up early easter morning and going out to see the easter basket the easter bunny(aka my grandparents) had left for me.then we'd head to church for the service and then back home to a wondeful family dinner.i love that my children get to experience easter as i did!

    • Sherri

      Its hard for me to decide which is my favorite, having all of my family and extended family at our house for a cook out and an egg hunt when I was growin up, or hosting those cookouts at my own home now with my children, parents neices and nephews. And realizing that Easter isnt about the eggs at all, its about the resurrection of my Lord and Savior!

    • Kmcfalls1972

      My favorite part of Easter is seeing all the new faces at church.

    • Theaikenparrs

      My favorite memory of Easter is last year–when our family was finally complete (after YEARS of waiting) with the addition of our twin sons. They came home just a few short weeks before Easter and we celebrated a LOT that year.

    • Jennylynnek

      My favorite Easter memories are the “Happy Resurrection Day” Parties that we had at our house. This was to encourage us to remember Jesus' rising from the grave instead of the bunnies at this time of the year. The special breakfast and treats that we had are great memories of my favorite Easters

    • Morgan

      Being with family.

    • Stephanie B

      My favorite memory of Easter is each year, after church,, at brunch, my mom would tell me, and everyone else, the story of my very 1st Easter…it was the day I was baptised. Sadly, without knowing, last Easter would be the last one I would hear her tell my special story. Now I will be sharing with my daughter each and every year. Ah, the memories. I miss my mom so much, but this memory just flooded back and I'm smiling away remembering. Thank you! :-)

    • Dlaysia

      My Easter Memory was not that of a fun , an excitment of candy baskets or eggs, but one that began my journey to know and accept Christ. My Husband ( back then friend) and I got up and got dressed to go to church. I remember parking was crazy and we had to walk to the church only to sit in an overflow cafeteria room so needless to say we didnt stay… however.. the following Easter Sunday of the next year we went to another church and it was amazing and we ended up joining that church, getting saved, and now living for Christ. Our journey has its ups n downs but God has always been there. I would Love the Resurrection Eggs to be able to teach my 4 yr old the TRUE meaning of Easter and not the propaganda and worldly side that gets the most recognition…… THK YOU for the opportunity……… BECAUSE HE LIVES!!!!!!

    • mom of two boys

      I have a very large family (my mom was 1 of eight so I have lots of cousins) so when we were younger an easter egg hunt was the big excitement. My grandpop and grandmom would fill the plastic eggs with money…One egg would have the grand prize of $20.00 It was always fun to see who would win it. It usually was an infant cousin who had no idea what was going on. Now I realize 20 dollars could but that little guy some diapers or formula…

    • KarenM

      My favorite memory of Easter is my brother and me hunting all over the yard for eggs that my parents had hidden and that we had decorated. My parents would tirelessly re-hide them over and over until the eggs were ready to be thrown away (saved out some to eat!).

    • Beth

      My 2nd favorite Easter memory with my family is when I was 25 my dad came to SC to visit me, and he wanted to hide eggs. So there I was a 25 year old hunting easter eggs with my dad like I was a kid. That was the last easter we shared together. My first favorite easter is the first easter morning, because with out the resurrection of Christ, we would all be lost still. Praise God for how much He loves us!!!

    • Val

      Attending church!

    • K. Doyle

      One of my favorite memories is coming home from church with three kids to find their Easter baskets (The Easter Bunny doesn't leave the baskets until after you go to church.) My two year was sitting to take a picture with his basket and took a huge bite out of his dark chocolate Godiva Easter Bunny. Cutest picture ever!

    • Ajones88

      Watching my kids find their Easter baskets.

    • Qsaver704

      Every year mom would make the “bunny” cake equipped with a chocolate bunny, green dyed coconut for grass, and many different types of candy for decoration. I also enjoyed going to sunrise service with dad even when the others were too tired to go.

    • Dana

      My favorite memory is going to my mother in laws house. All the kids have a different color egg and we (the adults) stuff them with money and change. Some eggs have a penny and some have a dollar. It's so fun to watch them hunt for their colors and so fun to see them open them up and see what they have inside. The smiles on the kids faces are make wonderful memories each year.

    • Tishahardee

      My favorite memory is of my daddy hiding a single cadbury egg for me to find every day of the week leading up to Easter! I love them still to this day!

    • LA Henson

      I love our Easter church service each year!

    • Brooke

      I always enjoyed hunting Easter eggs at my grandmother's house!

    • Hbruchie

      I have a favorite tradition that I do with my Sunday School Class,.. On Palm Sunday we make crosses out of palm fronds (like origami) then on Easter we always make little “He's alive Rolls”. We roll big marshmallows up in crescent roll dough and cover them with lots of sugar and cinnamon. After they bake the big huge marshmallow that we had to make sure was covered is now gone, and it's looks like an empty tomb. We just have a fun time learning every Easter about Christ is not dead, HE'S ALIVE!!! :)

    • Fields9709

      One of my favorite easter memories is when my 1st born at 1 1/2 years old was able to say, when asked why do we celebrate easter.. because Jesus lives!

    • Rlf6915

      my 9 month old and the baby egg hunt on a blanket. I can't wait to have fun again this year!

    • Lacey

      I was 13 years old and my father was 38 when we were both baptized on Easter Sunday. I can remember my purple dress and my dad's nice suit that he wore. We still go to that same church 15 years later. What a special memory to share!

    • Mbeck1861

      dying eggs with the kids as they concentrate on getting them JUST the right color.

    • Kriss

      My favorite Easter memory coincides with the first time I ever celebrated Easter with its common American traditions. I was able to hunt for eggs for the first time at the age of 21! What fun!

    • Rachel

      My favorite Easter memory is when we spent it in Michigan with my Mom's best friend and her kids, we actually call them our cousins. It was so much fun having all the kids around.

    • Jenni P

      My favorite Easter memory is the egg-hunt that my family had in our own back yard of our own house for the first time. My husband going out and “hiding” the eggs (not really, because our kids were so young), and then the two of us leading the kids outside into the sunshine and giving them hints as they toddled around the yard. It was a peaceful, ideal little moment in time for our family.

    • Deborah

      Sunrise service on the beach!

    • Thimblefull

      One Easter my Grandfather gave all 21 of his grandchildren a 50 cent coin. I know how long it must have taken him to save those. Back then they were made of silver. My Grandfather made that a special Easter for all of the grandchildren from the oldest to the youngest. I hope I am making memories with my grandchildren that they will always cherish.

    • j&bsmom

      I love looking at pictures of my kids from Easter's past, all dressed up and ready for church! My favorite memory is watching the little ones at church flower a special cross on Easter Sunday!

    • Cohensmom06

      Waking to baskets and hunting eggs!

    • Cmskelton

      Egg hunting at my grandmother's in our Easter dresses (a long time ago…and she has since passed).

    • Krystal

      I would love this for my kids, I have not found a way to explain the real meaning of Easter to them yet!

    • Candice

      Sunrise service on the porch of the church followed by breakfast in the fellowship hall….what a great way to start Easter!!! (Oh, and the HUGE egg hunt after breakfast was always so much fun!!!)

    • Katie Yommer

      My favorite memory is the peace and quiet of our sunrise service last year. Sitting in the cold light of dawn with my husband and my kids was just amazing!

    • Guest

      My favorite Easter memory is the first one I spent with my (now) husband which was also the first Easter for my niece. We colored Eatser eggs with my niece (which really meant my boyfriend and I were coloring Easter eggs.) Took lots of pictures and watching him hold my niece. The next day he went to church with my family and I. It was the point in time I knew I would marry him.

    • LauraBo

      We love watching the annual Easter play at our church!

    • Momof4

      Attending service with my family!

    • Megan

      My favorite memory of Easter was when my now 6 year old told me the Easter story and how Jesus died for us. She told us it was not about candy but Jesus!!

    • Nicki Corum

      One of my favorite Easter memories is hunting eggs at my Granny's house. It was always a great time for us all to spend time together.

    • Momofthreeboys

      I have 3 kids and each Easter we talk about the resurection story and talk about how we can Glorify God. I think as each year passes its important to look at the year passed and see how we can improve our walk with God.

    • Sarah Potter

      My favorite memory of Easter is making a bunny “nest” out of grass in my back yard when I was child. I was delighted to find it filled with treats in the morning!!

    • Christakidd14

      My mom used to hide Eastwr eggs for us to find and we would always dye eggs.

    • monkeysmom

      As a child, picking flowers with my sisters to put on the cross in front of our church. As an adult, watching my 5 year old hunt eggs with her grandmother and great grandmother because I know those will be memories she will keep with her.

    • Couponkelly75

      Sunrise Service Easter sunday at Callaway Gardens.

    • Kelly

      We honestly never did much for Easter when I was growing up, other than getting a basket. I am going to start NEW traditions for my 3 boys, and they would LOVE these eggs :)

    • Lynsy

      My favorite memories are loading our van and driving from IL to Florida to spend Easter week with my grandparents. We would rent a cottage on Indian Rocks beach (which sadly, they no longer exist and have been replaced with high rises!) We would attend a sunrise service and follow it up with an Easter egg hunt on the beach.

    • jr911

      My favorite memory is sunrise service at church each year.

    • Michelleg1

      These sound great! I know my three year old son would love this. It's such a fun way to share the true meaning of Easter.
      I remember growing up going to my church a few weeks before Easter with my mom and making chocolate/peanut butter eggs. The church would then sell them to make money for the Women's Ministries. It was such a fun time that I always looked forward to.

    • Rusty Painter

      Last year, my the 3 year old daughter came home from preschool very excited. She crawled up in my wife's lap and said that we didn't have to be sad anymore. When asked why, she said “Because Jesus isn't in the tomb. He is alive!”

      We were then able to get her to tell the Easter story on video. Every time we watch it, we tear up,

    • Everts98

      Growing up I always loved to get our Easter baskest. Even when I got married and moved away the bunny somehow would send me a basket in the mail. Now a days, I love to watch my kids color eggs and search for the Golden and Silver egg.

    • Ralumpkin

      The Easter I was 4 and my sister was 2. We woke up Easter morning to find not only our Easter baskets and stuffed animal bunnies (which 37 years later I still have mine), but we also got baby ducks. I know now that my parents adopted them from the local wildlife museum, and later that summer we took them back to museum a released two beautiful Mallard ducks. I will never forget that Easter.

    • KC Paulk

      One of my favorite Easter memories happened actually happened after Easter time. By son was 5 at the time and we were talking about going to church and why we go to church etc. He said “But Mommy I KNOW Jesus is My Lord and Savior” It made my heart smile :-) KC

    • Frances S.

      My favorite Easter memory was having my birthday fall on Easter and my Mom making me an Easter bunny birthday cake.

    • Sarahabill

      My favorite memory of Easter was waking up that morning and being so excited to see my Easter basket. I came downstairs and searched the house all over only to find out that my mom forgot to put the baskets out. That was a real bummer as a child. haha!

    • Mother Of Cai

      We have a seasonal tree up and I decorate it for each month. For Easter this year I put little plastic eggs in the tree, before my boys can go get a egg we go over the verses leading up to the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. They review over what they have learned the past few days and then they will go pick an egg, some have candy and some have a toy inside.

    • MJ

      One of my favorite memories of Easter is the tradition of placing live flowers on the cross as a family during Easter church service.

    • HeatherAnne:)

      Waking up Easter morning and looking for the baskets the Bunny left for us during the night!

    • April

      My grandchildren would love to hear the Easter story by using these eggs. My favorite Easter memory is everyone loading up and going to Grandmother's house for a big easter egg hunt after Easter Sunday Morning service. This was a great time to get together with everyone you love and all us children had a blast….

    • Jacoffey

      I have always loved celebrating Easter! Growing up, we would spend Easter morning at church. There was always a special service with lots of singing. We would remember what Christ did for us and thank Him as a church. Then, my family and I would drive an hour to my grandma's house for a special dinner. Grandma always had Easter baskets waiting for us, and we would spend the afternoon decorating eggs. Then we would have a big ham dinner. Grandma always had a special butter in the shape of a lamb at the table.

    • Gail

      Our church performed a live outdoor drama of the passion story – we go the crowd involved & the story came to life

    • ac4mail

      Favorite Easter Memories? Egg hunts when I was a child. And, sharing the story of Jesus with my children. They enjoyed Resurrection Eggs, as well as the story books we had.
      Amy

    • Karmin

      my favorite Easter memory was going to my memaw and pepaws house…they lived in the North Carolina Mtns…we always lived 4-6 hours away from them and didnt get to see them much….all of us grandchildren would dye eggs and hide them at the playground near where my grandparents lived……it wasnt about finding the most eggs….it was about spending time with my cousins and grandparents….we had a awesome time…Sunday morning.we would all go to church together in our new Easter outfits!!! love those memories!!!!!

    • Elizabeth

      When I was little, my great-Grandpa would come to our house for Easter. During our Easter egg hunts, he would be telling us kids “you're getting hotter/colder,” etc. It was so much fun, and watching the old movies my parents took back then is quite hilarious!

    • Jhardy23

      My favorite was always sunrise service with my grandmother, but with my boys it really is coming home from church and doing an easter egg hunt.

    • sarah

      My favorite Easter memory is getting together with family and doing an Easter Egg hunt after church and dinner and my grandfather making some sort of Bunny cake with coconut on it but leaving a plain piece for me!

    • salexander1810

      I remember going to to church early on Easter Sunday and then after church going to hunt eggs at my grandparents, but I want my kids to know the true meaning of Easter, and not the commericalized meaning (Easter Bunny). I think this would be a great way to teach them they are 3 and 5. Thanks

    • Tamara Manning

      My favorite memory of Easter would be the 3D bunny and lamb cakes that my Grandma always made – one for each grandchild. My LEAST favorite memory is from when I was about 10 and my wrap skirt fell off when I was walking into church. Thank goodness I had a long spring coat on!

    • Melissa

      Easter is such a wonderful holiday. I have good memories of a family gathering where everyone brought a dish and we had a huge egg hunt.

    • Morganshimp

      I grew up in New York state so I remember one year my Mom bought big rabbit feet and hopped around in the snow and my sister and I TOTALLY believed that the Easter Bunny had been there!! It was great fun but, I'm so happy to be teaching my children the True meaning of Easter and would love some Resurrection Eggs to help!! Thanks

    • Utgradgal

      When I was single and living away from “home,” my boss invited me to his house with his family for a super special dinner for a lonely person.

    • angie quinton

      Easter Egg hunting with my parents and grandparents and eating deviled eggs, ham and potato salad!

    • Jenlee311

      My most memorable Easter was the year that my family had a huge Easter egg fight after we finished hunting all the eggs.

    • BevJM

      When I was five (many moons ago) our Golden Lab gave birth to a litter of roly-poly puppies. We were more excited about that than chocolate eggs!

    • Roxanne

      My fav memory was waking up and walking into the livin room, and there on the couch was mine and my brothers' easter baskets filled with something special for each of us, and of course candy!

    • Alangston

      My grandmother would make all the grandchildrens Easter Baskets filled with yummy candies and toys. then we would go to Church together and get our baskets after church…

    • tswiger

      As a little girl we would get up before daylight and travel to my grandparents where we would have Easter breakfast around a huge round table in their dining room. We took turns eating because there was so many of us. Then all of the kids would walk down the dirt road to a small church to Sunday School. I was very blessed to have the family I had.

      easter egg hunts at my great grandmothers house

    • Themimb

      Giant (to my little hands anyway LOL!) foil covered eggs that we get in the UK.

    • Hopefully will win this set, but making my own too, thanks

    • Floridacouponmama

      My favorite memory of Easter is dying and decorating eggs with my Mom. She's gone now, but it's those little things that add up to a ton of happy memories!

    • Jennifer

      My ALL TIME FAVORITE Easter memory was made just last year. My eldest daughter (now 7) had just made a profession of faith on Valentine's Day so she was seeing Easter through a believer's eyes. I started on “Good Friday” reading the “Easter story” to her as closely to what I believed the correct order of events would have been. We went through Jesus' “trial and conviction”, His walk carrying His own cross, His being hung on the cross, etc. Each time, I took care to put as much emphasis, emotion and drama into reading the scripture as I could. On Easter morning, I woke her excitedly and said, “Osjha! It's Sunday morning! It's. EASTER Sunday morning!!! Let's go check on Jesus!” She scrambled down out of her bunk bed so quickly she almost fell. We hurried to the master bedroom where I already had the blinds raised, and looked out in the back yard where the sun was just about to make it's appearance. Then, I read the scripture about Mary's trek to the tomb. We “watched” her walk across our back yard and turned to look behind us where the angel appeared to us as well. With tears in my eyes, and genuine joy and relief in my heart, I explained to my six-year-old sweetheart that all was well with the world because it had been Friday, but Sunday had indeed come. I said, “Osjha, we have to go tell EVERYONE!” She ran, I. Mean. RAN to tell her three little sisters, her Daddy, her baby brother, and then hurried breathless back to where I stood in my bedroom, and said, “MOMMY! Does GRANDMA know?!?!?!?” At that point, I began to sob uncontrollably. Our Lord's resurrection was no longer just a story in a book to my baby girl. He was ALIVE that Sunday morning! And, He lives today and forevermore. . .in my heart and in the life of a little Princess who, without hesitation, asks our cashier at Wal-Mart if she knows God, and then quotes John 3:16. THAT is my favorite Easter memory!!! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share. GOD BLESS YOU!

      • Jessica

        this brought tears to my eyes, thank you for sharing

    • Nanathena61

      My first sunrise service. There was just something special being up that early with other Christians.

    • Cheryl74

      My husband was a childrens pastor. We were pregnant with baby #2 and due May 2. Of course we had a huge easter egg hunt planned for Easter sunday. Wouldnt you know it, I went in to labor at 12:30 am Easter morning. Our sweet baby boy was born at 4:03 am on April 23, 2000. Needless to say our awesome childrens workers took care of the Easter service and the egg hunt for us!

    • Ugabamagirl

      My favorite memory of Easter as a child was the yearly egg hunt at my grandparents.

    • carrie

      Hunting hidden plastic Easter eggs!!

    • Imswept

      This is going to sound funny but, my favorite Easter memory is when my father was cooking a leg of lamb on the grill (this was back in the 70s) and the fire flared and it caught on fire! The next thing we saw was my dad running around the pool deck with a flaming leg of lamb on a spit. It was so funny!!!!

    • Careyrivers

      My Granddaddy “decorates” the trailer behind his tractor and gives all the kids (and adults!) rides after Easter dinner-it's so cool now that my kids do it especially since we live in the city and they think they are living a whole new life out there!

    • Kary

      Oh I loved waking up to treats in my basket and then getting all dressed up for church and then going to lunch and an Easter egg hunt with our large family.

    • Sidsmom24

      my favorite Easter memory is my first Easter with my first child, my daughter…I waited a long time for her, and I was so proud to take her to church with her pretty “Easter dress”!! I got to do the whole bunny basket thing with her, and I am happy to say that she been going to church ever since! We have moved in the last year and misplace our egg set so this would be a nice surprise for both of my kids as well as my sunday school class!! **fingers crossed** HAPPY EASTER TO YOU!!

    • Reagan

      The generosity of my grandma always buying me an Easter dress.

    • Beth

      My favorite memory of Easter is spending it with my kids. :)

    • Tlingg

      My favorite Easter memories are all of us wearing our new fancy Easter clothes for church – my sister and I in usually coordinating dresses with white gloves and hats, my brothers in their suits. And of course there were the egg hunts my parents would do for us. They would hide eggs for us in our yard with change inside – pennies, nickels, dimes – we were so excited to find all of those treasures.

    • Kamnsc

      My favorite memory is of getting a new Easter dress each year and going to church with my family.

    • Couponsforheather

      I have never seen these but would love to start this tradition with our first born, who will be 10mo this Easter season. What a blessing. Thanks for the giveaways!!

    • Jessica

      last year our church had an amazing Good Friday service that brought me to tears…simply from reading Scripture and reminding our congregation what Jesus suffered so that we may know Him through the forgiveness of our sins.

    • twinmomaaa

      Oh my goodness I would love one of these sets for my 3 girls. My favorite easter memory is going to Easter mass with my family.

    • Tanzy303

      My favorite Easter memory is dying eggs with the family and going on easter egg hunts!

    • Valerie

      The year our black lab Beauty got out of her crate and ransacked the Easter baskets…we spent the morning at the Vet and then crying our way through Church. It was quite traumatizing for us kids, but helped us remember the real reason for Easter was not Chocolate bunnies….hahaha

    • L337momma

      waking up and finding that mom had splurged and bought us chocolate eggs, she had taped one to my bedroom door :~)

    • Anezkalynne

      my favorite easter memory is inviting a hispanic student and his family to our church's easter party complete with cascarones (sp?) and the student coming to church with us for years after that first invite.

    • Brandi_b_77

      When I was a child, we would go spend Easter at the lake. It was so nice to spend time with extended family!!

    • Kara

      We shy away from too many traditions that aren't resurrection-related, but I have started an egg scavenger hunt where each egg has a clue that leads to another clue and ultimately a little special something. But my favorite thing is emphasizing the resurrection and watching it really sink in more and more each year.

    • just Q

      my favorite memory is the year my neighor “scared” the easter bunny and he dropped all his treats in our front yard..

    • Natasha

      My favorite Easter memory is taking our family portrait in front of the cross on Easter morning. All of the church members bring in beautiful flowers to put on the cross creating a stunning Easter cross for all to enjoy.

    • Bullseye10

      My favorite memory is my son's 1st Easter. We were in the military stationed in Cuba and the one and only store did not have much a varity so we baught a stuffed frog to put in his basket. Not your typical Easter basket stuff animal. He is 14 and still has it. It brings a smile to my face.

    • kkmommy

      My kids are 3 and 4, so they are just beginning to grasp the concept that Jesus died on the cross and rose into heaven and lives on with us in spirit every day. I would love to have a meaningful way to talk about this with them. Unfortunately, in my childhood there was only the emphasis on the 'commerical' idea of Easter, so I am hoping to build a new faith-based tradition with my children.

    • Katie

      My favorite Easter memory is actually quite embarrassing. It was my babies first Easter, he was almost one and I had bought the CUTEST suit for him to wear to church, (all you moms know where this is going). I got it all ironed and looking perfect and even waited until we only had five minutes until time to leave to put it on him, so it wouldn't get all wrinkled. Wouldn't you know literally 1 minute after I put it on him he threw up ALL over his white shirt. I didn't have time to clean it, I just had to wipe it off the best I could. I was a crying mess.. i was SO upset that our perfect Easter was ruined. Then after being very upset and finally getting in the car I realized it really didn't matter at all. Easter wasn't about how cute my 1 year old looked, I was missing the point completely. Since then I always think of that Easter when I am getting my kids ready and what the day is REALLY about.

    • Cara

      Favorite Easter tradition is Easter egg hunts with our small children. Of course, going to church on Easter Sunday is so special too!

    • Amynycol

      My memories of Easter: It was always a whole weekend event. Our church holds a Good Friday Gospel singing on Friday night and people would come from everywhere to visit. People came from from IN to FL to visit in us in AL. On Saturday we would get together with family. Sunday we all got to wear our new dresses and matching hats to church. Everyone always looked forward to their new outfits. Then we went to Grandma's for the big Easter egg hunt. It was wonderful times and I am still carrying on these triditions for my kids. Except now we eat dinner and have the egg hunt at church on Sunday with our friends. :)

    • Thepierces

      Would love to own these!!! Fond memories of getting up early for sunrise services and to check out the Easter Bunny goodies…

    • Jenn

      I love Easter Sunday, getting dressed in new Easter outfits and going to church as a family. It's one of my favorite holidays.

    • Aprildfox

      Taking my daughter on her first Easter egg hunt last year.

    • Jessica

      I don't remember many Easter's growing up. So my favorite Easter memory would have to be my nephew's third Easter. By that age, he really understood and loved the decorating the eggs. Looking back at the pictures always makes me smile.

    • emily

      We had a bunch of friends over after church who were all in town like us and had a potluck with Mexican food. It was fun to break away from the norm. We made a little 5 egg resurrection egg set of our own and my daughter LOVES it she would probably be giddy over a 12 egg set! (she's 2.5)

    • Rh

      My children both have special Easter baskets that get filled every year. They are too small to actually hunt eggs in, but the baskets are a special part of our tradition.

    • Cj Girton

      My favorite Easter memory was in 2009. Chloe was born the Monday prior to Easter. So, her first Sunday ever was Easter Sunday. We got her all dressed up and took her to see her great granddad for the first time ever. I have a picture of him holding her and the big goofy grin on his face. That is my favorite Easter memory and one of my favorite with my Granddad.

    • Babylynn25

      I was Baptised at the Easter Vigil service at my church 2 years ago :) Favorite memory to date…although it competes with the adorable fleece bunny suit my daughter wore for her first Easter!

    • Nicole

      Last Easter we moved to our beautiful new home just in time for the bunny to hide baskets in our new home! It will always be a wonderful memory for me!

    • Nwooten73

      I especially love sharing the eggs with the preschoolers. It helps them remember the important parts of the story. We have our homemade set, but would love the 'real' set for our family.

    • Erikamacias

      My favorite memories are of my Aunt who would make each of our Easter baskets by hand. None of this store bought stuff!

    • Studioami

      My favorite easter memory is of when I hunted easter eggs at my papaw and granny's house. Papaw has not been with us for 11 years as of April 1, 2011, but his memory is still with us. I have a picture that was taken when I was very young of my sister, my cousin, and I sitting with my papaw with our easter baskets full of eggs. We were all smilling and having the best time.

    • Lgartrel

      Growing up, my parents would get together an Easter basket and hide them for each of us to find. I loved reading and remember a special Easter basket that included two of my favorite books which I still have on my book shelf.

    • Littleprincess7975

      My favorite Easter is when my mom and dad hid Easter eggs for my fiance' and me for our first Easter together. Jeff and I had so much fun and it was pretty competitive to see who got the most eggs.

    • Lrodebush

      I think it will be this year,,,I have a 13 month old grandson and his first Easter Egg Hunt. Easter has such a special meaning of hope!

    • My favorite Easter memory is hanging the plastic eggs on a small tree (using string) with my Grandmother!

    • Kidstuffgirl

      Mom always makes us a basket and has us kids hunt for plastic easter eggs with quarters in them to play card games. It's kinda strange because my youngest sister is turning 18 tomorrow! But we still do it! We love it!

    • Nikki

      My fav Easter memory is when my grandma let me help her decorate a tree in the bag yard with hanging pink and yellow plastic eggs – I just thought it was the most fun!

    • Andrea

      Three years ago I was teaching the 3-6 year olds on Maundy Thursday, and we re-enacted the Last Supper. The Spirit of God was in that classroom as much as in the sanctuary where the adults were taking Eucharist.

    • Maia

      I love easter dinners with my family and maybe inlaws too. My mom's cooking is always the best. Going to church and watching my kids chasing after the older kids for eggs are unforgettable moments.

    • Zukeeper6

      My favorite Easter memory is when I was 15 and my friend, John, invited me to church with him for the first time. I went with him, heard the Gospel and walked down the isle to receive the gift of salvation. John baptized me that morning. What a beautiful thing to be born again on the day we celebrate our Savior's resurrection. And how special to have my friend be the one to not only lead me to Christ but to also baptize me. I am forever grateful. :)

    • Bridgitte Seiber

      My sisters and I had our Easter outfits on for church and we were all carrying those little purses that were round with a little doll in the middle. (am I showing my age?) This was the early 70's. Well, my dad was taking pictures of us all in the front yard and I noticed the first “buttercup” as we called them. I went to go smell it when I saw the “golden egg.” I recall being real quite and looking back at my dad because the “hunt” wasn't until after church!
      Well, 20 years later little did I know I would be standing there, taking pictures with my children in their Easter outfits. Overnight we had had an unseasonable snowfall that covered up all the hidden eggs and the generations of buttercups! My youngest son says, “It's okay we know where the golden egg is”! I just love that has it has brought back years of life going full circle and carrying on family traditions!!

    • Ourhomeschoolreviews

      My favorite memory is waking up on Easter morning and finding all the Easter eggs. Would love to win this for my daughter.

    • Lisabluedevil

      Wearing new Easter Dresses and shivering as we stood outside in our church's prayer garden for our Easter Sunrise Service.

    • Linda Muir

      I love the annual tradition we had of hiding plastic eggs after Easter dinner at the Grandparents house. We hid eggs for our boys and their cousins multiple times, and they LOVED searching for and finding them. Evidently, they missed a few each time, because Grandmama often found them, here and there, as she gardened for years afterwards!

    • Surgibelle

      My favorite Easter memory was being baptised as an adult (on Easter Sunday)and knowing my 4 week old fetus was being blessed as well as myself.

    • Jillian

      Dying Easter Eggs!

    • Jennifer

      Sunrise service!

    • robin

      Getting dressed up for Easter and going to church is always a cherished memory!

    • my3sons

      My favorite memory is going Easter egg hunting as a child at my great-grandmother's house.

    • My most favorite Easter was when we decided to make baskets for each of my grandkids and all the neighbor kids who otherwise would not get anything for Easter. We ended up making 54 baskets and hiding over 600 plastic candy-filled eggs! Priceless memories!

    • Butngrl

      My favorite Easter memory was the year after my husband past away. I was 23 and very much the scene of a widowed military wife…it was a sad time. I was driving down the road, when I stopped at a red light. There was a homeless man standing on the corner holding a sign, and I was so out of focus with the world at the time, I didn't see him until I was turning the corner. I felt so bad for not seeing him, I parked in the lot next to the corner and walked to him. There we stood face-to-face and it was then, that I read his sign. 'I am a military vet. I do not want money, only to remind you why Christ died for you…and is going to come back….are you ready?'. My world was much clearer after that. We walked to have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat…I just wanted him to know how much I needed to be reminded of God's love….right then! It is an example of how our God is still and ON TIME GOD.

      Happy Easter!

      my favorite memory is watching the kids hunt eggs :)

    • Stacy

      Getting to wear new Easter dresses and go to Church as a Family and enjoy the great message of what Jesus did for us!

    • MommaLB

      My favorite Easter Memories comes from the huge family dinner after Easter service. My mother would always cook a huge meal…. now that she celebrates with Jesus in heaven. So the sweet memories with my Mother mean all the more. Praise the Lord I know I will see her again one day and that is the real reason behind Easter in the first place.

    • Lk Tompkins

      Family! and the fact that we can always remember we are saved by his Grace! also making Easter baskets with my boys out of gourds.

    • Jenika1205

      I think our favorite Easter memory was coloring Eater eggs and getting alll dress up in our Easter Bonnet's and going to church….

    • Meggen Devlin

      My favorite memory was coming home from church and finding my new pet rabbit in a box in the living room. Suddenly I knew why my mother took so long to leave the house that morning. :-)

    • jfred

      oh, I LOVE resurrection eggs! We had them when I taught kindergarten, and the kids adored them!

      Fave Easter memory…so many! The one I always remember–I was just out of college, living on my own, and had to work at 3am on Easter am. After church (which I mostly nodded off and on during–cause of working beforehand), I was invited to my friend's house. Her mom invited a bunch of us who didn't get to go “home” to come eat dinner with them. And I remember how the sun shone through the windows at the table, and how much fun it was to be with friends and friends who were like family. We laughed and talked and shared. The mom is now with the Lord, and it makes me sad and happy all at the same time.

      Getting new Easter dresses for church.

    • laura

      My favorite Easter memories are definitely the time spent with my family. We would wake up early and attend the sunrise service at our church together. What sacred and meaningful services they were!! Then we would come home, read the Easter story and make sticky buns. My parents infused meaning and discussions into each activity. We'd go to my grandmother's house and hide eggs for my cousins and younger siblings. Wonderful memories and I hope to provide similar ones for my own little girls! :)

    • Trish Chambers

      Our favorite Easter activity is coloring eggs and reading over the Easter story with our three boys.

    • Katie Benefield

      My favorite Easter memories are going to the sunrise service at my church as a child. Oh, how we complained about getting up so EARLY, but it was always such a sweet service. We then would have a good ole Southern Sunday morning breakfast!

    • Michellev

      My favorite Easter memory was the first year my oldest son really got into the easter egg hunt. He was so excited with each and every find. It was so fun to watch his joy!

    • Anita

      My favorite Easter memory was going to Easter services with my grandmother Carr. She was so excited to have me in town for church that I got introduced to everyone, twice.

    • Sara Hill

      My favorite Easter memory is dying easter eggs in all colors of the rainbow with my sister. When we finished there was always the anticipation of the bunny hiding them that night. My favorite quote to my little sister was “the sooner you go to bed the sooner morning comes”. Before the sun was fully up one of us was sure to wake and peek outside to see if we could spot one in the yard or if they were hidden inside the house. Once the festivities of the hunt were over my dad crack a few and create deviled eggs for brunch. The rest were a simple decoration by placing them in a dish on our table. Brunch was always sure to be good but the candy from our baskets afterwards was even better!

      As a child eating Easter breakfast at church before services!

    • Tina

      I loved getting to wear my new easter dress & shoes!

    • Theramseyfamily

      My favorite memories are having real baby chicks at Easter time.

    • Rockgators

      I would love to get these to start this tradition with my 2 year old and newborn boys. My favorite Easter memories are the Easter Bunny foot prints that my parents left throughout our neighborhood (no matter where we lived). They used cardboard cutouts and a stocking with flour in it to pound the prints onto the cement. It was so fun to track the prints!

    • JaimeK

      I think the most memorable Easter memory my family has ever had was 3 years ago. My 3 sisters and I were at our parents' home, entertaining my children on the back porch until 'the husbands' finished hiding the eggs. One sister called for her dog, Belleza, to return to her since she had not seen the dog in a while. (My parents have 7 acres) Belleza, a Brittany 'Spaniel', promptly returned to us bearing a gift.
      Her gift was that of a half-eaten rabbit!!! As my sisters and I were loudly grossing out and teasing our sister for her dog's hunting prowess, a wail pierced through and promptly had our attention.
      My then 3yr old daughter was so upset! I began consoling her about how that's normal, but threw her tears she told me, “Mommy, we can't have Easter anymore since 'leza ate the bunny rabbit!” I couldn't help but laugh. We all hugged her, told her everything was fine-she would get to search for eggs in just a moment, and when my husband came to see what happened, he quickly told how that rabbit was just a cousin to the real Easter Bunny, since the Easter Bunny is white and that one was tan.
      Our daughter calmed down and enjoyed herself the rest of the day. We all got to have a great dinner and a time to share and better explain why we celebrate Easter to the little ones.

    • Charity Hand

      I was blessed with a mother who knows how to sew. At the time, I didn't think it was much of a big deal, but now I have such great memories of picking out fabric and patterns for my Easter dress each year. Of course, growing up, there were times that I wished she would just take me to the mall and pick out a dress from the store but now I'm so happy to have memories of mom staying up late Easter eve so I could wake up on Easter Sunday to a new dress to wear to church.

    • copperswifey

      We love going to Holy Saturday Mass together. It is one of the most beautiful Masses of the Year!

    • Kim

      I would LOVE to win one of these!!

      My favorite memory is hunting Easter eggs at my grandparents' house each year, they have since both gone to be with the Lord, but it's nice to think back to that time we had with them.

    • Suzy C

      I loved making these little easter egg shaped cakes (really, I think it's just yellow cake mix in an egg shaped pan that was as old as the hills) and using boiled icing with food coloring to make the toppings.

    • Mom of all girls

      Love this idea, so much better than putting money or candy in the eggs. My kids favorite time of year is Easter. We play games, do crafts, make yummy treats and enjoy the day

    • My parents didn't take us to church when we were growing up, so Easter to us meant an egg hunt on base (dad was in the Army), followed by a huge brunch buffet. Now, my husband and I attend church regularly and are excited to share the word with our almost- 3 year old and 4 month old! I'd love a set of these eggs :)

    • April

      Egg hunts with my family. The adults would hide the eggs for the kids to find and then the kids (me!) would hide the eggs for the adults to find. We did this ALL day!

    • Elizabeth Brown0702

      My favorite Easter memory is the easter egg hunt at my great aunt Mary Frances's house.

    • Cynthia

      I think any time we are able to spend time with our extended family are always the best times.

    • lknieriem

      The Easter Egg Hunt is a memorable tradition. My kids get to excited.

    • kylee

      Loved going to sunrise services!

    • Lynsie

      My fav memory is that my cousins would come stay at our house for thaty Saturday night. When we would wake up my Mom would have all of use baskets of candy and little things. Then we would get dressed up in our very “Eastery” outfits and head to our church.

    • Rita

      I now have a 4 and 7 year old “great” niece and nephew living with me. This will be their second Easter hunt with me. I love the Easter Egg Hunt … but what a great idea to bring in the real meaning of Easter with the Resurrection Eggs.

    • Mashiop

      Though it was over 30 years ago in Japan, at the church I attended (I wasn't Christian then yet), we had Easter service and then had an egg hunt. The eggs were not like those we do here; filled with candies and goodies. They were colored boiled egg but we thought it was the best thing ever. I remember we had a wonderful time. Every year, I do think about my first egg hunt in Japan. Years later, I became a Christian here in the US.

    • Jacobcarrigan

      Waking up and finding what the easter bunny left! Dying eggs, family, etc.

    • KAW

      Coloring eggs and the basket the 'Easter Bunny' left use…..

    • JD

      Every year my church had an Easter Egg hunt and picnic at one of the members' house (with huge yards and lots of room to play). All the way through high school it was a great event and we spent weeks making our moms make us outfits to match our friends.

    • Laura Mcclure

      My favorite Easter memories are dying eggs and hunting for them with my two children and my two nieces and nephew. They actually love to hide and hunt eggs all year round!

    • Lynneweeks

      every year we had easter egg hunts with real eggs – even into our teen and college years – these were not egg hunts for little kids – these were extremely competitive. The hard boiled eggs would get crushed and smashed as we “fought” to find the most. We did the egg hunt several times each easter. One year when it was raining we had to have it inside and my brother and I both saw an egg by the globe we both went for it and that was the end of the globe but I got the egg!

    • Nocurtain

      myy fave memory is eating lunch at my nana's after church

    • Jennydnelson

      Coloring the Easter Eggs at the kitchen table…so much fun!!!

    • CouponingJenny

      I always enjoyed how my mom would make my sister and I a special easter hunt in our own rooms of little easter goodies that she had bought when we were little. Now I have little ones and am wondering if I should start the same tradition or a new one.

    • Sonja

      Love to “color” eggs every year. But my favorite memory about Easter is praising our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!

    • JennC

      I loved when my grandmother would take me (as a child) to the dogwood tree in her front yard each Easter to tell me of the symbolism the blossom. The cross was represented by the 4 petals, the nails were represented by the marks on the outer edges of the petals, and the crown of thorns was represented by the center of the bloom. If this is not a testament to His perfect design, I don't know what is! Sadly, my grandmother died in 2001 but we chose to have dogwood blooms inscribed on her headstone.

    • Kelley

      Singing “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today!” One of my favorites after hearing about the Resurrection!! :)

    • 4gladkids

      New Easter clothes for church and a big easter egg hunt with family and friends at a farm.

    • Iriondickerson

      My mom would make a special new Easter dress for me each year. I always looked forward to wearing it!

    • bianca

      Dressing in our Sunday best and having a party for Jesus!

    • Monica

      My favorite Easter memory is the egg hunt. Love finding the golden egg.

    • Kteacher1980

      My favorite Easter memory was last Easter when we got to celebrate with our three month old son, Braden. The birth of our son is a beginning of new life, just as the Savior offers us a new life.It is also exciting to pass on other traditions like Easter baskets, egg hunts, and a meal with family.

    • MudMom

      My Mom used to make big individual easter egg piñatas for all the children in our family. After hunting easter egg hunting we would get blind folded and take swings at our piñatas. Of course, it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun if they wouldn't have video taped it for laughs even to this day! It's a tradition I carry on with my kids!

    • Hbannist

      Favorite memories are Sunrise Services at the lake. Wonderful day to praise our Creator.

    • CS

      me and my sister dying easter eggs in the kitchen. Me being little enough then to sit on the counter and “help” as best as I could

    • Cpk153

      Hunting for hidden easter eggs and the year my dad forgot where he hid the last one and we didn't find it until the summer heat helped us locate it.

    • Frazierangela87

      going to church to worship the reason for Easter….

    • Stacie

      waking up in the morning to the bunny footprints across the floors…i do it for my kids now and they love it!

    • Lynnie

      My family didn't like hard boiled eggs, but enjoyed decorating them. We used to put pin holes in the top and bottom of the egg and blow the insides out! It was hard work, but great memories:)

    • Lori

      As I think about Easters as a child, one stands out in particular. My family was very involved in our little Methodist church, so it came as no surprise when my dad was contacted when a German couple bicycling through the US wanted to spend the night in our church on a stopover. It was the Saturday before Easter, and instead of contacting a committee to make that decision, my dad invited them to stay at our house. That night, after dinner, they showed us how they dyed their eggs back home. They boiled onion peels to make the dye and boiled the eggs in that water. Then, they used a black ink pen to draw pictures and designs when the eggs were dry. The next morning, I donned the Easter frock, but that wasn't nearly as exciting as it normally would have been. Instead, I couldn't wait to get to church to share with friends all that I had learned from these strangers. As I look back, the greatest lesson came from my parents' acts of kindness, tolerance, and sacrifice to give these strangers a place to sleep the night before Easter — an appropriate lesson, indeed.

    • Brandiqueen1

      Every Easter has been memorable to me – but my favorite Easter memory would have to be our middle child's first Easter. Dressing her up and sharing with her what Easter is about – along with sharing this memory with her older sister!

    • Dawn J

      I remember one year when my little girl woke to see little white bunny footprints going from a window to the coffee table where her Easter basket was waiting. The look on her face was priceless!

    • cher

      My daughter's first year easter, which was adorable

    • fletchtr

      My favorite Easter memory is going on egg hunts at church. We would have so much fun hunting for eggs and I never found the gold egg but one year I found a silver egg. I share this tradition with my children today. We also enjoy putting flowers on the cross in front of our church and taking pictures in front of the cross.

    • Clairegaskin

      My Dad must have chewed the carrots we left out for the Easter Bunny and we were so amazed that the Bunny didn't eat the whole thing. Also, they left trails of jelly beans thru the house to each of our baskets.

    • kemdeals

      singing “He Lives!” at church on Easter Sunday morning!

    • Dnmc78

      Being baptized, having first communion and being confirmed on the Easter Vigil 2010. That was my best Easter Ever!

    • We love to make Jesus Cookies every year at easter, but sometimes it's good to stretch it out… wish we had something like this around.

    • Mandi

      My son's first Easter – sitting in a sea of eggs in the yard laughing his head off.

    • carrie

      donning the easter dress, going to mass as a family, that huge, gorgeous HAM as part of a perfect family meal together

    • KKsmama

      Hi to all my Savvy shopper friends!

      My favorite Easter memory would definitely be the first Easter my oldest son was able to Easter hunt for hidden eggs at his mimmie and papa's. It was so exciting for him, but probably more exciting for us! He was so cute picking up each treasure and carefully checking out his find, while all the older kids were trying to beat the next kid to fill their basket. He obviously was particular about want went into his basket! LOL!

      Now, he has a little brother that will be just as excited to hunt for his first real Easter Egg Hunt with big brother and cousins on Easter Sunday! It will be another treasured memory with many more to come!

    • Homeschool3kids

      Even though I have 2 teenagers, they still can't wait to color eggs. We have been coloring eggs since they were toddlers.

    • Sarah

      We used to get up early to go to Sonrise service at the town square across the street from our church. We'd also always get a new outfit to wear and it felt so special.

    • chrystal

      Opening the Easter basket and finding a huge peanut butter chocolate egg!

    • Kelli Tesh

      My grandfather passed away on April 8, 2009, two years ago today! That was the Wednesday before Easter that year. My family and I burried him on the Saturday before Easter. My grandfather was a God loving, Bible preaching man! He loved Jesus and lived everyday for him. My family and I thought it was so appropriate that he was able to spend Easter in Heaven that year with the one who died so we could all spend Easter in Heaven one day! It doesn't matter when Easter is, March or April, my family and I will always know what Easter means and why we celebrate it, because of my grandfather!

    • Amy

      My favorite memory of Easter was getting new matching dresses with my 2 sisters when we were young. We always felt so pretty! And now the pictures are fun to look back at.

    • Lknepper

      One Easter, it was damp & chilly, so we hid the eggs inside the house for our girls. They hid & hunted eggs(plastic of course) until Christmas.

    • Janice

      We had a little booklet that told the Resurrection story and when my daughter was just 3 years old she could recite the whole thing word for word! It is a precious memory from her childhood as she is now grown and has her own children.

    • Slynn

      My favorite Easter memory is going to church and getting all dressed up and then getting to hunt eggs in that pretty dress. I didnt have a set of the Resurrection Eggs and I would Love for my granddaughter to have a set!!

    • Mlyons2279

      My favorite memory of Easter is always going to my Granny's and having a dinner or lunch and hunting easter eggs with my cousins. Usually she had the long marshmellow hard moon shaped colored candy and some other candy too. As an adult our first child was born the day before Easter so that is a great memory.

    • Tippv2j

      Easter eggs hunts at my grandparents house– always racing to find the one with the money!!!

    • annemarie73

      My favoirte Easter memory is spending Easter Sunday at the sunrise service. It is always cold, but a beautiful reminder of our salvation!

    • kjmiller

      We surprised my mother-in-law last year by driving down (about 700 miles) to spend Easter weekend with her. It was also the weekend of my husband's birthday, and she was beyond ecstatic. Otherwise, I just love to picture the empty tomb where Jesus lay!!!

    • Angela Graham

      I can always remeber getting a new dress and pocketbook in the mail from my Granny and Grandpa. Also coloring and hiding eggs with my mom, is something I will never forget.

    • Courtney

      My favorite Easter memory is my mother rolling my hair in curlers on Saturday night and sleeping in them to have beautiful curly hair to wear with my new Easter dress to church on Sunday.

    • luvpink

      Sharing the story of the resurrection story with the kids at church. I love seeing their face light up as they open the egg and are surprised by what's in it.

    • rebecca

      Going to church on Easter as a child. The pretty dresses and egg hunts.

    • Susan

      I have a lot of favorite Easter memories, and they all involve spending Easter with my family celebrating the fact that Jesus is alive!

    • Lmckie

      I love the Resurrection Eggs, too. Miss Patty Cake does the best video using the Resurrection Eggs (Egg Stravaganza) and we watch her video every year. I have twin 4 year old girls and they love her!
      My best memory of Easter is when I was a little girl, maybe 5 or 6 years old. My mom had planted Tulips during the fall/winter of the previous year. No dought, she had painstakingly ordered the bulbs, put them in the refrigerator for several weeks and lovingly planted each bulb by hand. There must have been 50 or more. She was so proud of their beauty on Easter morning. She must have said how beautiful they were more than once, because I took it upon myself to cut each and every flower (with only a 2 or 3 inch stem) and proceeded to come inside to deliver my beautiful bouquet to my mom. Was she mad? I'm sure she was furious, but she knew that I didn't know any better…so she held her hands out to embrace me and my efforts. I try to remember that same grace each time my girls do something like that!

    • Absutton

      We make Easter sugar cut out cookies as a family. My mom would go all out doing this with us girls and then we would deliver them to different family members. So much fun and such GREAT memories!

    • FreedomSpradley1

      My favorite Easter memory is when I used to go to Orangeburg Gardens every year with my extended family to enjoy a huge meal, egg hunt, and softball game. Would love to get the resurrection eggs and start a new Easter tradition.

    • Mmwonline

      when my daughter was a toddler (she is 29 now) ran to the door and yelled out “I lub you Easter Bunny!”.

    • Purvislets

      My favorite Easter memory was from a couple of years ago. I was only a few weeks from my due date and, out of failure to think things through, wore a bright pink shirt to my family's Easter egg hunt. I was labled the human Easter egg thanks to my swollen belly and those pictures are perhaps my favorite from any Easter! Now, my little Easter egg is 2 and can hunt eggs on his own with his big sister.

    • Ashley

      Decorating eggs with my mother and sister, attending church services, and celebrating Easter with our family.

    • Theopenedcookbook

      Last year I had a baby girl on Good Friday. She was born premature and had mulitple health issues so I had to go home on Easter morning without her. She was able to come home a few weeks later and to my surprise, all of our family members had come together to celebrate her first easter with us. They even brought back out their Easter decorations so that it would feel like the real thing!!!

    • Lk5b

      Going to Sunrise Service and the Easter Egg Hunt and family dinner afterwards at nana's house :)

    • Nessastorm

      this is an absolutely amazing thing. My best memory was getting up at 5 am and going to Sunrise service that started @ 6 am. After service the men in our church would serve everyone Breakfast of scrambled eggs with pieces of ham inside. It has taken me a long time but I believe just within the past year have I been able to duplicate those eggs. and YES it did take me back to 645 am on Easter Sunday eating in the basement of our church.

    • Misty

      Last year my daughter cracked a bunch of hard boiled easter eggs she got at an egg hunt on our kitchen floor. It was very funny to watch. I can not wait to do the resurrection eggs wtih her. She is 3 1/2 and she will have fun with it.

    • Holly

      I love making up baskets for my kids and my hubby! I also love attending church together as a family!! I have never used the Ressurection Eggs, But I would sure love to win and make it a tradition for my little ones! :) Thanks for a wonderful Give-Away!

    • Vern6791

      When I was little we would always go to grandmas for Easter, she lived 2 hours away. We would go the church Easter Sunday and when we came home the “bunny” would have left a basket. Our baskets always had a chocolate cross in them. We would have Easter egg hunts and would always re-hide the eggs for the adults ti find. We continued the tradition with the great grandkids and their cousins. Only after my grandparents passing, a few years ago, did the tradition stop.

    • Flaminalpha

      Oh my how I need these! I would love to win them! My 5yr and 3 yr would really enjoy them. My favorite Easter memory was last year, watching my children learn the message behind Easter, I love watching their faces light up as they learn Jesus is alive! This year will surely be even more memorable!

    • Shelleyschu

      I have these eggs and they are very educational and fun for the kids. My favorite Easter memory is having the annual Easter egg hunt at my Grandma T's with all of the grandchildren and kids (about 40-50 or us total). We take pictures and then let the kiddos change for the mass hysteria egg hunt.

      Also fav memory is having my daughter say that she wanted to tell me about the Resurection Eggs (we keep them in her room). She told me all about them and that she believed in Jesus. PRICELESS!

    • Twinmom2

      I remember getting a new Easter dress and going to church and then my grandma's. Dinner at grandma's was always the best.

    • Jamie Henry

      When I was a girl, my grandma, who is in heaven now, used to make my sister and I an Easter dress and buy us a fresh flower with babies breath hairbow from winn dixie. She would say that the flower represented the Risen Lord! Thats my fondest memory of Easter.

    • Connieb03

      I loved having Easter egg hunts with all my cousins.

    • Kristenallen2002

      My aunt and my cousins would travel to our house for Easter. We would wake up to the smell of blueberry filled crepes that my mom made from scratch on Easter morning. We would have an Easter egg hunt in my backyard with my cousins and then attend church in our new Easter dresses. I've never heard of Resurrection Eggs and I would love to do this with my own kids and the kids in children's church!

    • marianthi

      Midnight litergy after church we come home and eat all kinds of Greek foods and the best part is when i was little when it came to crack eggs against each other. I used to put clear nail polish to make my egg harder so it wouldn't crack! So when the time came to crack the eggs i was always winning till one year my brother caught me putting the nail polish on my eggs… :) now my oldest son remembers what i told him to do last year and he keeps asking me when are we going to make easter eggs so i can make my egg harder and beat everyones egg..lol

    • Tina

      Growing up I lived in Rhode Island and one Easter it snowed so we were having Easter egg hunts in snow that was almost as high as I was.

    • wendi_leigh

      I love the Resurrection eggs. My son is highly allergic to eggs (among other things) and Easter is always a tough time for him, so this is a great idea to create a special tradition to enjoy with both kids and remember the reason for the celebration.

      My favorite Easter memory: just like every year the family dressed up for church and went to Grandma's after to hunt Easter eggs. Only 3 weeks later we were trying to determine what that HORRIBLE smell was in our house. It took us amost a week to discover that it was an egg that had been forgotten in my brother's suit pocket. Yikes!

    • jessica

      My dad used to hide our baskets every Easter. When we woke up before church we would search the house for them!

    • Holly

      My favorite memory is when the “Easter Bunny” left a trail of jelly beans all through our house that led to my presents. I had so much fun following his trail finding them!

    • RebeccaFer

      One of my favorite Easter memories was probably the last Easter where the Easter Bunny visited our house. Each of us kids (3 girls, 1 boy) got an Easter Basket filled with goodies. I was the youngest so it was especially gleeful to get up early and race around the house to find my basket. My siblings, however, were 5, 7 and 8 years older than myself so they were no longer enamored by the thrill of candy hidden throughout the house. I couldn't understand that so I decided to be joyful for them, espcially my oldestest sister Lisa. I gathered all my candy and toys then proceeded to put hers together. I then entered my sisters room, aka “The Cavern of Darkness” where the rooms were dark purple, the carpet was dark purple, the curtains were dark purple and the bedspread was … well, I'm sure you get the pictures. As I entered her room shut off from the Easter morning light, even that darkeness couldn't contain my excitement and I bopped in with a huge “Good Morning! I've got your Easter Basket!!!” I thought she would have at the very least smiled but she grumbled loudly and rolled over then waved her hand telling me to leave it over there. I couldn't just put it on the floor, what if something happened to it????!!?!! So I place it on her pillow, knowing she'd get it as soon as she woke up. Hours later, when teenagers finally stir, their was a loud bellowing of my name from the upstairs. I cringed because for 8 years, I knew that my name, said in that tone, meant something bad was coming. As my sister turned the corner, still calling for me with a very angry tone, I saw it … a marshmallow bunny smashed and melted all on the side of her head. It was like a bunny roadkill mashed into her hair and let me tell you, it was none too pretty for the bunny or my sister. Although I didn't laugh at that time (I was too busy running for Mom's protection) I, and we, still do now. It wasn't exactly the most cozy of Easter memories but it sure is a good one! Lol. :D

    • Istherecake2

      As a child, my favorite memory of Easter was going to the store with my mom and sister to pick out a new Easter dress, shoes and hat. Looking at all the fancy hats and getting to choose one was so much fun!

    • grandmak

      I have never seen Resurrection eggs before … they're wonderful! I made “Resurrection rolls” with my granddaughter last year and plan to continue the tradition each Easter … what a wonderful way to teach our children and grandchildren of our Savior's Resurrection!

    • HeatherKenney

      These eggs are awesome! We don't have them but my mom does and she enjoys going through the eggs with my kids. It has become their tradition. My favorite Easter memory was when I was about 5. After church, my family went to our church's Easter egg hunt. There was one GOLDEN egg out there amoungst about 100 others. I found it! Woo Hoo! There was no “extra” prize just the GOLDEN Egg! Ha! I would love to have the Resurrection Eggs to donate to my kid's Sunday School Program. Thanks for the giveaways and Happy Easter Jenny!

    • Donna

      I have never heard of Resurrection Eggs, what a lovely idea. My favorite memories of Easter was when I was a little girl and my sisters and I all got new hats to wear to church.

    • Sharon

      My favorite Easter memory is the Good Friday service at church where they passed out nails similar to what would have been driven through Jesus' hands and feet. I often think of that huge nail and the pain my sin caused and the price Christ paid to take away my sin.

    • keri

      My parents would hide our Easter Baskets and we'd have to hunt for them…so fun!

    • Sandra

      My daddy never mowed the grass on the weekend of Easter so it would be high enough to hide real eggs in. No plastic for us back in the day.

    • Those are awesome!! We've never purchased them, but I'd love to have a set. We lost my mom the day after Easter six years ago. Easter Day that year was the first time she'd laughed in a long time – we knew she felt weak, but she was in the best mood we'd seen her in for a very long time. I cherish that day…and am sad that we lost her the next day, but it did make our last day with her so bright!

    • Misslissa_c

      I favorite memory of Easter was going to my Grandma's house after church for Easter dinner and then an Easter egg hunt with all my cousins.

    • cindy

      My favorite memory was coloring eggs. My aunt would come over every year and we always made a black egg.

    • Oooh, I've been wanting a set of these. My favorite memory actually happened last year – my daughter's birthday was on Easter day! (April 4th). We had a fantastic time celebrating her birthday and the resurrection of Christ with an Easter egg hunt the day before Easter. I look forward to the next time Easter is on her birthday, but I think we'll be continuing our now “tradition” of hunting eggs the night before Easter.

    • Ashley

      When I was in college, I went home with my roommate one year for Easter break. Even though we were 20 something, her mom hid Easter eggs for us to find in her backyard. I loved getting to be a kid again!

    • Amanda

      My favorite Easter memory is going to my grandmother's house and hunting eggs with my cousins. My grandmother always made a big meal for everyone and we would all visit for the day. When she died, our family slowly stopped getting together as much. Thankfully my mom is “resurrecting” that tradition and we try hard to get everyone together since family is so very important.

    • Tonya

      Easter always makes me think of the play my church used to put on for our community. I still remember all the songs and it's been many years ago!

      And of course I remember dying “real” Easter eggs for the egg hunt. There were no plastic eggs for us back then!

    • Sandy565

      My favorite Easter memory is last Easter…I had such good memories of my time with my grandfather that Easter. We didn't know it would be his last Easter but we made the most out of it!!

    • Heidi

      I love the flower cross that our church makes every year on Easter morning from flowers out of members yards.

    • Janell

      Painting and filling cascarones as a family. I remember my parents setting up Easter egg hunts and other games to play in our back yard. Then we'd get to open the eggs up for great treats and crack the cascarones.

    • I loved dressing up in my new Easter dresses and going to church. When we got home, the Easter Bunny always left us Easter baskets.

    • Taclark97

      awesome community egg hunt!

    • Vernell

      As a child my family never celebrated the commercial part of Easter but one year my father bought us a pre-made Easter basket. So getting that basket was my favorite Easter memory!

    • Slagleheather

      we put peanutbutter cups in the eggs one year and my husband hide them. when we went outside and looked for the eggs some were messing. we looked up and the squirrels took them and there were moving eggs in the trees lol they stole the eggs for the peanutbutter cups lol

    • Kmmize

      I loved loved loved Easter egg hunting with my grandmother. I miss those moments each year.

    • Zmama24

      My favorite Easter memory was last year- our first one in North Carolina. The kids LOVED doing egg hunt and the weather was gorgeous!

    • mustang_ally0227

      I always loved getting up Easter morning to see what the Easter Bunny left in my basket. :-)

    • Stephanie

      I have had so many fond memories of Easter as a child. One of my favorites is waking up before dawn to see the Easter story told on a mound in Moundville, AL.

    • Jami Strickland

      My favorite Easter memory is when I was a little girl getting to wear my “Best” Sunday dress on Easter with my matching hat & purse. I thought it was the best thing in the whole world :)

    • BrittGirl82

      My favorite memory (it only happened once) was waking up for early morning service years ago (I was ten or so). I went on the back porch to practice my part for the Easter play. I remember the view that I saw like it was yesterday. The dew was on the grass and the sun was beginning to make its debut. The smell of dew on the grass and flowers blooming and the sounds of birds chirping just froze me in time. I did not quite understand what was happening, but it was a beautiful moment. Every now and then I would have that “familiar smell” moment which would bring me back to the moment. It made me appreciate the simple things in life such as sun rises and spring blooms. Jesus is amazing…

    • Erin W

      the fuzzy bunnies i always received in my Easter basket!

    • Amandagwa

      Helping my grandma in the kitchen with Easter dinner and of course dying the eggs! <3

    • Selena

      I loved doing the resurrection eggs as a child too!

    • Wilkeslydi

      my favorite memoryis when my mom and dad who are now deceased would take us to church and then take us on a easter egg hunt.

    • G'sMom

      I loved having egg hunts over and over and over with the neighborhood kids.

    • Loranna

      Easter dresses my mom would make for me and my sister, and now she makes one for my daughter each year!

      Visiting with family and celebrating the reason for the season:)

    • elaine

      large wooden cross at our church's entrance on easter sunday…we would bring clippings of flowers from our yard and lay them in front of the cross.

    • SarahWr21

      I love decorating eggs with the kids and then hiding and finding them for days!

    • Amanda

      Easter Egg hunts at my grandparents house with all my cousins.

    • Angie Walker

      My family is Hispanic and we'd save our eggshells (by cracking a whole at the top and dupping the egg out), and around easter we would color and stuff them with confetti. After the hunt we would chase each other around and crack the eggs on our friends heads. Lots of fun!!! These would be great to keep the reason for the season at the front of our minds, rather than the egg hunts. Thanks Jenny for this great website.

    • Rebecca A.

      Getting the extended family together to have a huge meal that would end all of the Lenten fasting. Ham, chicken, kielbasa, deviled eggs, cake….. This year I'm 800 miles away from my side of the family, so I'm throwing the traditional Easter bash for my in-laws. They have no idea what to expect :)

    • Bethany Oshel

      Easter egg hunts at my grandmas with ALL my cousins

    • Julie

      We have a churh down the road that does an awesome Passion Play and I get excited every year to see it. I love everything about Easter especially Easter clothes.

    • Qmommin

      not being able to find the one last decorated egg until it made the whole house smell rotten . . . :o)

    • MMay

      I love the songs at church on Easter morning!

    • Robinkinney

      That is a fantastic idea! I WANT IT!!! PRETTY PLEASE?!?

    • mommyloveskids

      My favorite memory is the corsage my mom and grandmother's wore, and sometimes me too! Wish more people would do that nowadays. Also the flowering of the cross at church. So beautiful!

    • Mollieirene

      Easter is so special to my family.

    • Rhiannon353

      Easter egg hunts and a big dinner at my Grandma's house with the whole extended family.

    • Stephanie

      My kids are 2 and 4 and I've never heard of these resurrections eggs, so I'm SUPER excited to find this and make this a new tradition for our family. I think this is a more difficult story/holiday for young children to comprehend, so i'm very excited for more than just a story/book. :) Def making one! Thanks!

    • Mrsmvincent

      My first Easter with my son was amazing. It really changed my view and made me understand a little more what a gift we were given. To watch your son go through so much pain, knowing you can change what is happening, is amazing to me.

    • Etlarsen

      My favorite memory of Easter was when my mother was baptized!!

    • AR

      Being a little girl at my grandma's house – she bought so many eggs and let me and my cousin always go egg-crazy. she never complained about the vinegar smell or the mess.

    • GalFam

      Love what Easter stands for…so all Easters are special to me!

    • Kristi

      Easter – The best thing I can remember is being told and learning the true meaning of Easter, YES, Our Lord has RISEN and IS ALIVE! Amen! :)
      I love teaching in our Sunday School and Wednesday Bible Study class for the little ones ages 3-7, they (and me) would LOVE to win this, what a nice lesson to go over and very appealing to the little ones with the colorful eggs! Great Idea! Thanks Jenny!

    • Bbklarinette

      I'm not sure I have just one favorite memory from Easter. I enjoyed shopping for my Easter dress when I was a kid with my mom and grandmother (who we lost last year.) Now that I have kids I like how excited my own kids get when they dye Easter eggs and do the Easter egg hunt at my aunt's house. I have never heard of resurrection eggs before, but anything I can do to teach my kids in a memorable way about the sacrifice that was made for us I am all for. :)

    • Moyerdz

      I have never heard of this before. Its awesome! My favorite memory is hunting for Easter baskets. My mom always hid them in the hardest places. Now I get to do this with my girls!

    • camilla wilson

      Hunting eggs at my granmothers house.

    • Coby_willard

      My favorite Easter memory was hunting eggs at my grandmothers house!! She had a huge yard and we never found them all!! We all fought to find the prize egg with money in ti!!

    • Christa

      Making Easter Tomb Meringue cookies with the boys, as we remember Jesus' death and resurrection.

    • harleygirl

      My sister and I would dress alike when we were younger. Our mom always made our Easter dresses and my dad always made sure that we had corsages to wear, because he always got my mom one to wear for Easter. Then it would be off to our grandparents to have Easter lunch after church and then have an Easter egg hunt with our cousins. What fond and wonderful memories!

    • Jennifer

      My favorite memory is being a little girl and getting a new Easter dress to wear for Easter. And of course hunting for eggs.

    • rebekah

      I love dressing my daughters in their Easter dresses and going to church and then coming home to hunt eggs!

    • Rcbdalive

      My favorite memories of Easter was hunting for eggs with my 11 other cousins. Now that I have my own kids, I enjoy watching them egg hunt with our growing family and tons of kids.

    • Shannon

      I always loved putting the little shrink wrap egg wrappers on our Easter eggs as a kid

    • Some of my favorite memories are dying easter eggs with my older sisters and my dad always buying flowers to wear on Easter Sunday for me, my sisters and mother. I always felt so special.

    • Michelle

      One of my most memorable Easters was when I was on my 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. and seeing the Easter Lilies displayed in the form of a cross on the Capitol steps.

    • CLA

      I loved to get up early for the sunrise service. Then, we would all go to church for a huge breakfast. Then, we (children) would decorate a huge cross with flowers we had picked from our yards before Sunday School started. I wish our church did that…what great memories!

    • Amy

      Telling the story of Jesus.

    • My favorite memory as a child was waking up on Easter morning and looking in the hallway for our Easter baskets.
      My favorite memory as an adult, now that I understand Easter and the sacrifice made, is singing in my church choir and watching as people absorb the impact of the sacrifice for their salvation!

    • Terribrandt

      Hunting eggs with my children in their Easter outfits at grandparents! Taking pictures of them sitting in the daffodils afterwards while opening each and every egg to see what was inside! I can still picture my daughters little white hat with elastic falling to her back and my son scarfing down the chocolate in every single egg he could open!

    • Jen

      My favorite memory of easter is spending time with my great grandparents and listening to the awesome easter story!

    • Jennifer

      I always love the special music during Easter service :-)

    • Kristen

      One of my favorite Easter memories is my husband dressing up as the Easter bunny for a skit at church.

    • Djanderson4

      My favorite Easter memory is my first Easter sunrise service as a believer.

    • Molly

      We just started a new tradition last year with our children (3 yrs, 1 yr) We make a crucifixion/resurrection mountain out of play dough. Little sticks serve as the crosses, and pipe cleaners can be made into disciples and Jesus. A little “cave” on the side of the mountain is the resurrection tomb. Another wonderful way to help make the resurrection story more “tangible” for little ones.

    • Lee

      Easter has always been a very special time in my family. First of all because as believers in Jesus Christ, we rejoice in this day to celebrate the completion of His earthly ministry. My mother was the quintessential Southern hostess and her Easter table was a thing of beauty. As girls, my sister and I would spend hours in our large rural yard picking the softest, deepest, most velvety violets by the handfuls to fill the little vases Mother had all over the house for Easter Sunday. The centerpiece on the dining table was of hobnail milkglass with 4 or 5 individual vase cones to make up the whole. Overflowing with deep purple violets surrounded by rich green leaves, it filled the room with a delicate fragrance. Freshly starched pure white linen cloth and napkins, shining polished sterling silver, cobalt blue and gold fine china brought back from WWII Germany graced each place setting which was always completed with a tiny individual wicker basket filled with Easter candies. Everyone in the family gathered after the Easter worship services around the huge old family mahogany table. Our meal was traditional in our family, a set menu of garlic leg of lamb, mint jelly, rice and gravy, copper penny carrots, marinated asparagus, beaten biscuits, iced tea, and freshly baked homemade strawberry shortcake. Although we are Christians, for many years, we also included the celebration of the Passover meal around the Easter table, loving the beauty of the completed symbolism of each element of the Passover fulfilled in Jesus' sacrifice. Mother is gone now but I love to recreate as much as I can the rich vignette she made throughout the house and yard; a wonderful mixture of fantasy and truth, of fun and beauty, colorful plastic eggs, an abundance of fresh flower bouquets, gleeful little lambs, shy bunnies and chicks. It was and is a celebration never to be forgotten.

    • Peggy

      I just love Easter. Never heard of the Resurrection Eggs but would love to have it. Although my daughter is all grown up, the memories of past Easter's, hunting for hidden eggs and a special basket was always a joy. I hope one day I have a grandchild and can join in the fun of Easter.

    • Edljoy

      My favorite memories are of the whole family gathered together at our house or my aunts and just enjoying the afternoon of fellowship after church on Easter. The peace and comfort of a loving God and a loving Family

    • Karla

      Hunting for eggs in the backyard of my childhood home.

    • Tachafin11

      I remember going to myrtle beach with my parents and being so distraught that the easter bunny might not find me there. Alas, the easter bunny did find me and all was well. I enjoyed following the cotton ball trail all around the house to find my easter basket.

    • Pam

      My favorite memory from when I was little was getting sunglasses in my easter basket every year. Now I have two boys when they were little Iwould hide eggs for them they still like to do that but now I use plastic eggs because they weren't to good at finding the eggs. Boy do they ever smell bad as the heat starts to get very hot.

    • Jakmsims

      Keep meaning to buy one for more 2 yr old…heard awesome things about hte resurrection eggs kits. favorite memory is always the egg hunts—-and finding the $20 bill as a kid!

    • Laurie B.

      My favorite Easter memory is all the Easter Egg hunts we had in the backyard growing up – it was always so much fun!!

    • over-used!

      I am so excited that these eggs are still around! I bought a set around 15 years ago and every year we would spend weeks hiding and finding and telling the resurrection story over and over. I got to the point where they knew the story inside out and hunted for certain egg colors because of what was inside. My son and his friends always searched for the one with the spear (it is a boy thing). My daughter liked the dice. Eventually it became tattered and a few eggs had to be replaced from opening and closing them so much. The spear was replaced with a lego spear and so on. They are in their 20's now but last year I pulled them out again and had my great nephew and great neices go through the story. I see that there is directions to make your own. I will most likely make some to pass on to my two children for their kids and repair the overused one I have.

    • Taylor7123

      My favourite memory is of the first Easter service I attended after accepting Jesus Christ as my savior, only one month before at the age of 34. My eyes and ears were open unlike ever before, and I wept as we relieved His resurrection.

      • Taylor7123

        Oops! “relived” his resurrection :-)

    • Margaretinsc

      My favorite Easter was when I was 9 and it snowed on Easter! I grew up in New York and we had relatives visit from all over. My relatives from the South got to experience the great white stuff. We had a HUGE Easter Egg Hunt that included notes and money in the plastic eggs and bunnies!

    • I loved Easter Egg hunting. My favorite memory is my brother and I looking for the last egg and my parents kept telling us we were “hot” right beside my grandfather. He had it hidden under his hat. :) Miss him! Thanks for all the things you do for us Jenny!

    • Allyg24

      i loved looking for my basket. my parents got very creative once we got older.

    • Melannie

      I would love to have a set of these. I have never seen a set but I think they would help my really understand the meaning of Easter!!

    • Aunt25kiddos

      I remember as a kid we would always attend my grandmother's church & every year we would do just this but we would have to find the eggs around the study room. Great memory. I had forgotten about this but would love to do this with my little girl.

    • Keri

      When we lived in Logan, UT we always took our kids to Baby Animal Days. So fun!!!

    • Jnrlingo

      Easter 2010 is by far my favorite Easter! Backstory: On Easter morning 2008, I miscarried. I was already a mother to a beautiful 2 yr. old boy, and so the miscarriage was unexpected and heartbreaking. I became pregnant shortly after the miscarriage and had my 2nd son in January 2009. 2009 Easter was tainted with the loss from the year before, and in my heart, I felt like every Easter would forever always be semi-sad. However, God showed me the true meaning of resurrection in 2010, when on Easter morning I learned that I was pregnant again! This pregnancy was completely unexpected, and I was already 9 weeks along! In Novemeber 2010, I gave birth to a little girl. We named her Zoe, which means “life” because God gave us “life”, not only in the form of our daughter, but also in a new reason to celebrate Easter's from now on!

    • Nikki

      Easter sunday would bring many of my family members together & we would all attend the same church for that sunday & then have dinner together

    • Alysa

      As a child, we traveled with family Easter week and on Easter Suday we were always away from home. Nevertheless, we always attended some strange church. Although it made us kids uncomfortable, we learned the importance of attending church, no matter where you are.

    • Marie148

      I love watching my little boy search around the house for hidden eggs….especially the golden egg with something special in it.

    • holly

      Church and big lunch with family!

    • TAA

      My favorite Easter was when I was about 8yo and my Mom and sisters and I made a special breakfast for my dad…rabbit shaped biscuits, etc. It was such a fun thing!

    • kathy

      Visiting grandparents and of course the candy.

    • Mellie44

      I love hunting Easter eggs. A few years ago my brother brought home some Resurrection Eggs and since then we go through those as well, my brother moves to the west coast this year so we won;t have that set of eggs this year.

    • Christy

      My favorite memory of Easter is from a few years ago. After our second miscarriage, we found out on Good Friday that we were pregnant. We spent the weekend visiting my Dad and it actually snowed in Texas while we were there. We were able to share with my parents that we were pregnant with our daughter and our son had a blessed family weekend experiencing snow! We got to share the story of the resurrection with him as an entire family. It was so much fun!!!

    • I used to go through the Easter story with preschoolers at church with my carton of Resurrection Eggs. I left them for the church to use. I hope my name gets drawn for a free carton for my kids. It would make a great tradition for my family. Thanks for offering this Christ-centered freebee.

    • 3eddy

      I got engaged on an Easter Sunday before church. My husband came to pick me up to go to church and he gave me a stuffed bunny holding carrots. He had tied the ring to the carrots and said he had some “carats” to give me!

    • Kathy

      My first Easter egg hunt with my daughter. She picked up one egg and one duck (they had small toys around for the younger ones), and she was thrilled.

    • Sjgroome

      My husband & I finalized the adoption of our two daughters (ages 5 & 8) last summer. This will only be our second Easter together, but I plan on making the Ressurection Eggs a part of our tradition.My favorite memories are the ones I'm looking forward to, like when they can tell me the true Easter story in their own words!

    • Lchubert

      My favorite memory was going camping and having the Easter bunny visit us in our Airstream! My mom, little brother and I decorated eggs in the camp the old fashion way and then we closed all the curtains in the camper and giggled while Mama and Daddy hide the eggs around the camper. It was a TON of fun and great memories with my family.

    • Angiedupree

      We spend every Easter in Pine Mountain, GA with family and attend the sunrise service overlooking the lake. It is the most beautiful setting to reflect on the meaning of Easter and a new life in Christ. One year, before we had children, my husband and I rode our bikes in almost complete darkness to the sunrise service. It turned out to be a fairly long ride through Callaway Gardens and quite cold! We made it just in time, and it was such an exhilarating morning. I'll never forget it. Now we have 2 beautiful boys to make new memories with.

    • michelle

      Easter service, then dinner, and then an egg hunt with the whole family. Although when I was younger, I would have said the Easter basket and candy… :)

    • Mommybrain_34

      My best Easter memory occured after a really bad Good Friday. My dad had been working on a roof when he slipped and when he grabbed the chimmeny it gave way and the bricks knocked him out. He fell off the roof and was out for two days. We went to the hospital to visit him on Easter morning and he had woke up! It was like he had come back to life! Made Easter that much more special.

    • kristina

      Enjoying dinner around the table with my entire family. I miss being able to do that now that I live across the country from my family.

    • Aragrie

      easters were always so much fun growing up because we would have a large family gethering with lots of deviled eggs and family sing alongs. I would go to sunrise service just me and my mom while everyone else slept and then we would go to a nearby national park and have a picnic!

    • Mary-Margaret

      My favorite memory is of the Easter Vigil service that we would attend at church the night before Easter.

    • Ogleteacher ashley

      I have many favorite memories but one would be singing “He Arose” at sunrise service and listening to my mom try to get the high notes out!

    • Anita

      A new tradition we started with our extended family get-together-a “peep fling contest”. See how far you can fling a peep with a kitchen utensil of your choosing. Winner gets a homemade crown and the privilege of crowning the next year's winner.

    • Callie

      My grandchildren would love these!!

    • Thiamaria

      I always enjoyed the hymns about the beautiful nature of the resurrection.

    • Ajawee83

      Enjoy making my own resurrection eggs with my kids

    • Couponscoupons Jones

      I will always remember waking up on Easter morning and having to search for my basket. One year it was in the dryer!

    • Sharon

      I always loved dying the Easter eggs. My mom would boil eggs and we would sit at the kithchen table and color our eggs together as a family. I also remember getting a new dress to wear to church. My own children also loved to dye eggs and now that one is married and one in college, I will miss that this year. Can't wait for the GRANDS!

    • mary

      We always fast for the 40 days leading to easter. I often teach preschool students the meaning of Easter using the church's resurrection eggs. It is a great tool! Our family has Easter traditions including special breads and taking part in the dramas. Our most favorite memory is coming home after Easter service several years ago, and we found newborn bunnies in a hole at our front lawn. Mama and her babies were beautiful and, although not part of the celebration of Passover and the resurrection, precious for our toddlers and family.

    • Kb

      I remember how my mom would sew me and my sister's Easter dresses to match hers! It was so much fun to go to church Sunday morning all matching!

    • SharonC

      My favorite memory of Easter is when my son was born.

    • Ellie

      my favorite memory of Easter is the year my mom botched the Easter Lamb cake. She has a wilton cake mold to make a 3D Easter Lamb and she took great pride in decorating it, but one year she decided to put a red icing bow around it's neck. Unfortunately the icing was a bit runny and when she brought it to the table it looked like blood was dripping from the lambs cut neck! She tried to make it work by explaining that it was like a sacrificial lamb, a picture of Jesus the perfect lamb of God. It didn't work to well with the little ones, they were all a bit scared of the bloody lamb cake! :) We would tease her each year when she would bring out the cake and ask her “where is the red bow?”. Since then she has passed the cake mold down to me and I've had the priviledge of making it the last two years and she has enjoyed being on the giving end of the teasing. :)

    • Lilliebelle

      Mine is that my daughter was born on Easter morning April 11, l982! She was 11 days early and what a blessing. The best one ever.

    • Laura

      Dressing up for Easter including a hat & attending church, then having a family dinner of ham, potatoes & green bean cassarole.

    • Morganterichmeier

      My favorite Easter memory is the wonder box during lent in our church. Each Sunday of lent it was a mystery throughout the Sunday school lesson as to what was in it. It was always something simple but it made us all focus on the lesson to get to the wonder box. This new resurrection egg set will be a great new tradition!

    • Tammyla

      I loved getting a new dress from my grandmother every year. And hunting easter eggs with my brother and cousins.

    • Collinsbrad

      My first Easter with my husband was before he was my husband and we had our two older children with us and we were camping and we had an Easter egg hunt that he prefaced with the true meaning of Easter–made him much more appealing

    • Kathyneff

      Watching my Mother sew three Easter dresses…. and the joy it gave my sisters and I to wear them.

    • Tylersgrandma3

      My favorite memories of Easter was made by my beloved PaPa. It was family tradition that after church on Easter, all 4 of PaPa & Grandmother's children & their families would gather at the old homeplace for the traditional Easter meal: 4 boiled hens w/dressing, gravy, green beans, biscuits and sweet potato pies for dessert. When I was 8, my PaPa gave all us grandkids little chicks colored pink, blue, green and yellow! They looked like little Easter eggs running around, peeping & were fun to care for (most of us lived on farms) but as it turned out all were roosters who grew mean as they grew up…and eventually, they ALL ended up in somebody's stew pot! The very next Easter, PaPa tried upmanship on the previous year and gave us all baby white rabbits with pink noses & ears! Of course, all of us kids fell in love immediately w/them and couldn't figure out why our parents' faces drained of color when they saw what PaPa had given us!LOL! I believe my aunt told PaPa (her dad) later that there would be NO Easter dinner the next year if he bought so much as painted turtles for us!!

      Easter egg dying with my parents was always my fav!

    • Vtthomas

      My favorite memory of Easter is dyeing Easter eggs each year, doing an egg hunt the next day, and taking pictures with my Easter basket. It was always a good year if I could find a pack of Skittles in my basket! Now that I am older and have two children of my own I make them baskets just for fun and to be creative!

    • Skirby611

      My favorite Easter was when I was old enough to know the real meaning of Easter and why we celebrate it. This would be a wonderful tool to teach my grandaugher that real meaning
      at an early age.

    • Jill

      My favorite memory is doing the easter egg hunts at my grandparents house!

    • Kim

      Easter Egg Hunts!!

    • Silkgardens30066

      I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THESE EGGS WITH MY CHURCH CHILDREN !

    • Easter egg hunts when I was a child

    • Pkraft1103

      I think my favorite easter memory is the year my oldest daughter who is now 5 had her first easter that she was able to color easter eggs and hunt them with my brother. To be able to see them have fun doing what my siblings and I did as kids :)

    • Emily

      I love dying eggs with my kids and hiding hundreds throughout the house for them!

    • Love all the gorgeous Easter dresses my mom made me when I was little.

    • Lesliemiller615

      My favorite Easter memory is talking about Jesus with our little ones and coloring eggs.

    • momof3

      As a kid we would always spend the day with family. Now that I have kids we do the same. Easter is about spending time with our family.

    • Rkcbyoung

      Last year my girls and I made Easter Egg Cookies and decorated them. It was a nice time to spend together right at Easter.

    • Ljohnson311

      My favorite memory is the year I wrote a letter to the Easter Bunny (not realizing that Easter was not like Christmas where you make lists and such) asking for a bunny rabbit of my own… and I actually got one! What a great Easter Bunny. :)

    • Cdayo4

      The Easter as a 3 year old I saw a REAL bunny out in the backyard and thought it was the Easter bunny- went on a chase through the woods ruining my Sunday socks….sorry Mom! But it was fascinating from my 3 year old perspective!

    • Mamachef694

      My Best Easter yet was 2 years ago. It was my sons first Easter and my Husband had been without a job for 3 months ( he was laid off the day after our son was born) and we spent the day with our family at the park. After lunch he got in the car and left for training at his new job. Not only did we celebrate because HE IS ALIVE!!!! but also because of the proof of that in our lives not only with our sons birth but HIM providing for our family!

      making resurrection rolls.

    • uscjessnh

      One of my favorite memories was at a family picnic at our beach front state park. My siblings and I are very close in age. The year my older sister became a teenager she was too cool to hang out with the little kids. My brother and I still pester her but that particular day we were on a mission. She yelled at us and got my parent's to reprimand us for annoying her. I would say not even five minutes later a bird pooped in her Shirley Temple curls. I will never forget her facial expression and we still laugh when we reminisce about that day.

    • Diane

      Going to church with the entire family and then home for a special dinner.

    • I just remember waking up on Easter morning and seeing both my sister and my Easter basket in the living room.

    • MichelleC

      My favorite Easter memory would be my baby's 1st Easter. It is so great to have a children and start new traditions. I would love this kit to be one of them …Michelle ocdcleanfreak@yahoo.com

    • Aacyphers

      My favorite Easer memory is waking up on Easter morning and looking for my Easter basket. At our house, the Easter bunny always hid them:)

    • My favourite moment about easter actually has to do with the whole weekend of Good Friday – Easter (last year). It was about six years after I decided to follow Christ. My church did a tenebrae service (that I got to play in) which focuses on Jesus's last few days. It really helped make Easter a celebration of His resurrection.

    • Megtfoster

      Hosting neighborhood Easter egg hunts every year. I loved having everyone at my house!

    • joyce

      I remember all 7 of us sisters dressing up in our beautiful dress, white gloves, white chain purse and bonnets with a long ribbon flowing down the back.And our only brother. We took pictures before church at grams all 8 of us sitting on her front porch steps. with our baskets.
      After church was the grand Easter egg hunt..Then Dinner and at last we could dive into our baskets! What memories.
      With my only child we lived on a dirt road and my husband would go out barefoot Easter Eve or early that next morning and leave big rabbit prints in the sandy road. so when she woke she could go out and see the great rabbit was at her house.
      We also had a hayride and myhusband dressed as a rabbit all in white.With a big bushy cotton tail. He had a basket and would hand out candy to kids we passed by as well as the ones on the ride. What fun singing here comes peter cotton tail!

    • Amandawebb8

      My favorite easter memory is how mother always had to buy us a new outfit for church and i always had my white gloves. it was so fun.

    • Bunnyfabulous

      One year my mom made my sister and I dresses and purses so that we matched –all except for the color. Mine was pink and my sister's was blue. Then we got little stuffed animal bunnies in our Easter baskets that went with our dresses. I didn't understand the meaning of Easter until much later, but that was my favorite childhood memory. Hope my daughter's memories will have alot more to do with Christ.

    • Angel_in_Charleston

      One of my favorite memories of Easter was when I was a very young girl, maybe 7 or 8 years old. My grandparents were going to buy me a new dress for Easter. When they took me shopping, Grandpa liked one dress and Grandma liked another one … they ended up buying both of them for me. How cool is that!

    • Jenn

      we began the resurrection egg tradition last year with our two girls, by making our own, and it was great fun!!! It quickly became my favorite tradition. My favorite memory is when we found the last, empty egg. My 3 year old was so excited to find it and exclaimed (as excitedly as she would if it had some yummy candy in it) “It's empty!!! Just like Jesus' grave!!”
      Definitely a cherishable moment!

    • Amie

      I remember getting a new dress at Easter and my mom having a special Easter basket for us Easter morning. Going to church with my family then to grandma's house for a large family celebration dinner and egg hunt.

    • Haregirl26

      I remember always getting a new dress with gloves and a matching hat . Also going to church :))

    • Peggy

      My favorite memory of Easter is the year it rained nonstop, and my sister and her husband hid and hunted the Easter eggs with an umbrella over my son's head.

    • Sabrina

      I loved going to church in my new Easter outfit, usually matching my sister's. Then after church there would be a big church-wide picnic and easter egg hunt. I miss that small church atmosphere, the one we go to now is quite big.

    • Jennifer G.

      My favorite Easter memories are the ones where my Dad's brother, wife and sons were in town during the holiday. Each year we traded which house would host, and we always had a festive meal around a beautiful table. This was, of course, after my Mom and I would start by attending Sunrise Service in the Park, Early Service at church, and coming home to prepare the feast!

    • Jess

      My favorite memory was always getting to pick out a pretty Easter dress. I hope to have a little girl someday so that I can pick out pretty Easter dresses with her….

    • Pam

      My favorite Easter memory is when my 3 year old brother (he's 43 now, I'm 48) entered a jelly bean guessing contest at the local candy store and won!
      My family was sitting around the table the Saturday before Easter (well, I guess it was the Saturday b/f the Saturday b/f Easter…), the phone rang, my dad answered, and the lady asked if John were there. He said yes. The candy store lady said Congratulations, John has won the jelly bean drawing…he had the entry with the number closest to the actual number of jelly beans in the jar. My dad thought the call was from a friend pulling his leg; but when she said we could come any time to pick up the SOLID CHOCOLATE EASTER EGG filled w/Easter goodies, he finally realize it wasn't a joke.
      So we made a big deal of all going to the candy store (The Yum Yum Tree in N. Ridgeville, OH) to pick up his prize. My mom froze a lot of the chocolate, and we had Easter candy for nearly a year!!
      A wonderful memory…..

    • Betsy

      one year my birthday was on easter. it was a special way to celebrate turning 6 years old!

      • Gloria

        my birthday has been on Easter before. I like it when it is.

    • Princessanna3

      My favorite Easter memory is dying Easter eggs with my brother and grandmother-in tea cups!

    • Kerri

      I remember we used to all go to my grandmother's and all the cousin's would have a big egg hunt. We used to race around to see who could get the most because my grandmother would hide quarters in them. After we would finish we would peel all the boiled eggs and have an egg fight.

    • Shellyluwho

      I always loved Easter. The Easter Egg Hunts as a child were the best.

    • Shmily143

      Watching my kids hunt for eggs. They want to do it over and over again.

    • Macdx3

      I have a really large family and we all love music. My favortie time is (without sounding cheezy) any time we are together. Easter is one of the few times that everyone is actually there. Growing up we would sit around my Grannys kitchen table listening to all my aunts and uncles singing and playing guitars and now we are all grown with kids doing it with them and I LOVE every moment of it. We have out grown Grannys kitchen table but just being with one another tears me up, especially since I am the only one who lives out of town.

    • Christykmccallum

      My favorite traditions are going to church and then having a big egg hunt with the entire family.

      Going to sunrise service and then brunch after.

    • Kseymour1974

      One Easter Sunday I made it to the sunrise service with my parents and my husband. It was very memorable & awe-inspiring as the sun rose to hear about God's Son rising. Since we have had our children though that service is hard to make. Maybe soon when our children are older we can make it back to a sunrise service.

    • KimV

      Growing up in Michigan, it would sometimes snow on Easter Sunday….and yet we would still wear our Easter dresses and white sandals.

    • Melissa M

      As a child, I remember getting a chocolate cross instead of a bunny. I always thought that was cool. As an adult, it was a rare Easter when my whole family was together.

      I come from a greek family. I can always remember that during our dinner we would have this homemade bread and there was money baked into the loaf. anyone who received the piece with the money, would have a very blessed easter and good luck.Now we keep that tradition plus our easter egg hunt with our grandchildren.

    • guest

      Growing, going to church on Easter Sunday (went the other Sunday's also), then having a extended family dinner, then hiding easter
      eggs…and of course the new frilly dress and fancy shoes, still enjoy that !!
      Remembering what it is really all about! God's great love for us.

    • Photothia

      Gathering at Grandma's house for a wonderful family dinner after church and the uncles hiding the eggs so good that we almost never found them all…until a few days later.

    • Saraandshane

      When I was a child I left my Easter basket out while we went to church. My older, and smarter, sister put hers up somewhere. When we got home from church my Easter candy was gone – the dog ate it all. My sister shared half of her candy with me. It was so remarkable kind and generous – I never forgot. I also never left my basket down where the dog could get it again…

    • Thegainesgang

      Sunrise Service in 1998- I was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 1997- went through surgery and chemo, and 6 mos. of being bald. I had a resurrection and renewal of my own- I decided that I had worn that “confounded” wig for the last time. I went to sunrise servie that morning “wigless”, with about 1 1/2″ long hair on my head. It was such a blessing to me to know that I no longer had to depend on that

    • Beccanifty

      Hunting Easter eggs!

    • Jenniferandrichardtournear

      My fav memory is spending time with all my family. Especially my grandparents. I love watching the kids hunt eggs.

    • My 33 year old when he was 3 and 4 years old and wanted to hide eggs, he would put all of the eggs in the mail box. Every time.

    • Abby

      My married name means “Easter bread” in Czech so I learned to make this traditional bread and make it every year. It's so yummy and such a good tradition for us!

    • Pebbles

      Enjoy the day with my family and celebrating the resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!! JESUS SAVES!!

    • Nurseewoody81

      Going to my grandparents house, and instead of candy in the eggs, we got coupons, like 'an airplane ride from uncle Broc' or 'A hug from Grandpa'…

    • eblux84

      I remember how every Easter it always seemed to be the most beautiful day. It always seemed so fitting that such a special day should have such beautiful weather. Waking up to the sun shining in through my windows felt so wonderful. I always thought the Lord gave us that great weather because He wanted His day to be perfect!

    • Hsgeary969

      My favorite Easter memory was one year my grandparents came for Easter and they brought a Ukranian Egg making kit. It involved wax and food coloring and quality family time. They were the most beautiful easter eggs I've ever made. I was probably around 12-13 years old. When my daughter gets a little older I'd like to try it with her. Would love the Resurrection eggs!

    • terryo

      My favorite memories are waking up on Sunday morning knowing that my brother and I had a Easter basket filled with treats. I also liked giving my Easter speech during our program on Sunday, and having dinner with family after church.

    • Rickandteresa

      Dyeing Easter Eggs and Sunrise service at church-Not to mention my mom's bunny cake she made every year when we were kids

    • Charity Courson

      One of my favorite memories as a child was waking up Easter morning to see my Easter basket at the end of my bed, wearing a new dress, and going to church. One of my favorite memories as a teen and adult was performing in Easter dramas at our church, and sharing the love of Christ with those who attended.

    • Colleen

      Watching one of my brothers search for his Easter basket every year after the rest of us found ours…he may have been the oldest but he wasn't cut out to be a detective, that's for sure!

    • Eva

      I just love getting together with my family every year

    • Twhitney1

      One year I asked my mom if I could have a gian Easter basket like the one at a local store that they were giving away as sweepstakes prize. Although she didn't have a lot of money, my Mom was very inventive. She took an apple bushel basket (pretty big), filled it mostly with crumpled up newspaper with a little fake grass on top and then laid my candy and other goodies on top. I thought it was the best basket, ever!

    • Bsmith

      My dad is a pastor- so my favorite memory was waking up early with him on Easter morning to go to the sunrise service with him!

    • My mom used to leave us clues to find our Easter eggs. They were clever clues written in rhyme. No wonder I loved Mystery books so much as a child! I have been wanting to make a set of resurrection eggs for two years now. I hope I win so I won't have to make them!

    • Smashmonst

      Aside from time with family and Easter dinner I always loved how the 10 Commandments movie came on during Easter. Not quite sure why, just the feel of nice weather and that movie reminds me of Easter.

    • Ladybekahkay

      Easter is one of my favorite holidays, reflection on our saviors resurrection, watching the sunrise with my dad, eating my mom's dough bunnies and sweet bread in the shape of easter eggs and basket, or teaching my kids the true meaning of easter using a recipe that bakes overnight and rises in the morning…. to many to pick one.

    • Erin T.

      My favorite Easter memory is being proposed to in front of the cross before sunrise service. :)

    • Emily

      We got engaged on Easter(my ring was in an egg in my Easter basket) and told our families we were expecting a few Easters later(we put Its a Girl and Its a Boy mints in the eggs

    • Hokiebc

      My favorite Resurrection Sunday memory is when we had a sunrise service at the Martin's farm in Blacksburg. It was cold outside, but after the service we went inside where the women of the church had made the best breakfast you ever tasted.

      I remember that I always got a new dress, shoes, hat and purse! I would love to have these for my grandchildren.

    • Jusbec2000

      I love Easter–it's my favorite holiday because of what it means to our Christian faith. One of my many favorite memories is the year one of my daughters was new born. She wore a dress I wore as an infant to Easter Sunday service. Actually, all 3 of my daughters have worn that dress on their 1st Easters in the world but my oldest was the first and it was also her first church service ever (outside the womb, lol).

    • Charlotte

      I used to love the easter egg hunts!

    • Laurakc181

      I always enjoyed when I was able to sit down with my father and mother and really discuss the death and rapture of Jesus Christ. It still baffles me to this day that he did that just to help us to go be with him in Heaven!

      My favorite Easter memories by far are when my PawPaw what alive and the whole family would go to my grandparents house for Easter. We would have a BIG lunch together and have a BIG egg hunt. The adults would hide the egss while we stayed inside and waited. There was always a prize egg with money, too!

      Every year, our church decorates a beautiful cross, completely covered with and surrounded by beautiful flowers. I look forward to seeing it every year and celebrating- He is Risen!

    • Luns777

      My favorite memory was looking forward to what the “Easter Bunny” had brought Easter morning. We would wake up and find our baskets before putting on our new Easter dresses and going to church. As long as I can remember the Easter Bunny brought me “egg” gum… I am 30 now and even last year he brought it to me!! =)

    • Jennifer

      I was about 3 years old and my Momma made my Easter dress which was white, green, pink. It was a long dress all the way down to my shoes. She made a matching purse with it. I thought I was in a padget or something. I felt so special and beautiful. I was amazed my Momma made such a wonderful dress. I'll never forget what that dress looked like and having a matching purse was really something!

    • amanda

      When I was very little, our church would have a picnic on Easter with an egg hunt for the kids. The prize was a chocoate cross

      Favorite of all favorite memories was waking up with my two older brothers and the excitement of knowing WHO had come to visit

    • Jeffshewcraft1

      I love using the Resurrection Eggs each year with my class of 4 yr. olds at school. I use the book Benjamin's Box to go along with the eggs. I like it better than the book that came with the eggs. The children can't wait each day to open another egg.

    • jessica

      Each year my parents host an Easter Egg Hunt for the the Grandchildren, however we decided to let my parents in on the fun. We had the grandchildren decorate big paper easter eggs and we hid them all over the yard and they had to find them. It was such fun for all.

    • Sandi

      My favorite memory of Easter was getting to wear my new dress with my new hat, stockings, and shoes. Money was tight, but my Mom always made sure we got a completely new outfit for Easter. She would put my hair in rollers the night before. I felt very special being all dolled up. =)

    • S_likins

      Last year we colored eggs with our son for the first time. He was so amazed!

    • laura

      Every Easter morning, we'd hunt eggs. It was always a rush to get it done before getting into our new Easter dresses, taking pictures and heading to church. It was almost always COLD on Easter morning in St. Louis, but we always had new springy dresses and white shoes!

    • Pdlane

      I remember going and hunting Easter eggs in my backyard,

    • Lisjanes

      I would love this. I have taught children at church with these and would love to have a set for my house.

    • Boliver0122

      My favorite memory of Easter is going to church as a family then spending the day with the whole family. I love Easter it just reminds me of all the blessing I have (my family).

    • My favorite Easter memory was going to eat brunch in our fancy dresses and then having a fun Easter egg hunt!

    • Lisjanes

      One easter morning we went out and found bunny tracks in the snow. We were just getting to the age where we were starting to doubt. After the tracks we believed for a few more years.

    • Sara

      I remember waking up to a basket full of candy and a fruit basket

    • Stephanie Brosch

      Our parents always made Easter special for us kids, however one Easter stands out from all the rest. I was about 12 years old and my younger sister was 5 and this particular year our step brother and sister came to live with us. Our parents were so happy to have all of us kids together and planned for a great family Easter beginning with Easter service at church. They went out and purchased all 4 of us brand new Easter dresses and suits. We lived down the road from the old county barn and there was a field full of “clay hills” just perfect for kids and we loved to slide down them. Well, yep you guessed it!! We walked down the road before church all in our Sunday best and slid down the clay hills. After much fun had been enjoyed by all, we arrived back home and when our parents saw us….we were lined up one by one and called into the bedroom where we each received swats with a paint stirrer : ) Oh yes, I can still remember the exact item that was used to give us a good spanking…it was almost easier than the 15 minute lecture we received afterward about not having much and how we children had no clue what we had cost them. We still talk about that Easter but with laughs and smiles…I am now 38.

    • dana

      My favorite easter memory is when my mum put real bunnies in our egg basket. That was the best easter ever.

      I remember a big churchwide Easter Egg Hunt with, it seemed, millions of eggs for us to hunt! I had never seen so many eggs or kids hunting eggs at the same time!

    • Heidi M.

      All my extended family, about 25 of us, would stay at my Grandparents 3 bedroom ranch for Easter. One year the Easter Bunny stepped on my cousins head. All us kids “saw” it! However, through the years we have come to learn it was just an uncle staggering through all the kids, we were just too groggy to know the difference between him and the bunny!

    • Aspisak77

      I have to say that the Resurrection eggs are one of my favorite memories! My mom and dad would pull them out every year and as I got older they would let me and my sisters would get to help tell the story.

    • Staceface81

      Coloring eggs with my mom and grandaw.

    • Leada Gore

      My grandmother owned a florist when I was growing up and each Easter, she would make me a corsage in the shape of a bunny. I don't think people wear Easter corsages much anymore, but I loved it as a child.

    • Jokat22

      My favorite memory is my easter basket..of course!

    • Jaclyn

      dinners and egg hunts with the family after church

    • Anna

      My favorite memory is being so sure that my neighbor friend and I saw the Easter Bunny waving to us from a hot air ballon. We were so excited that we wrote cards and drew pictures for him. Our parents even got in on the deal because the cookies and carrots that we left him on Easter Eve were nibbled the next morning. I loved being a kid!

    • Msliss17

      All easters are wonderful for me. We have a large family and after going to church we all get together for food and fellowship. It is always a great day of celebration. Last year was special because I was 2 days from having my 2nd child (which turned out to be another little princess)!

    • griffins00

      every Easter is special to me…we get together with our extended family to celebrate Christ's resurrection! Each year, I am more and more grateful for my salvation and for the family I get to share each Easter with!

    • Not

      My favorite part of Easter is getting called a Christ-killer by disgusting, ignorant people. It is a family tradition among many Evangelicals!

      • adrienne

        what?!

      • adrienne

        that is awful that anyone would say that! i must say though it makes no sense….He came to earth for the purpose of giving His life. It was the plan. i have no clue why anyone would say to you, but i hope you know it is not a “tradtion” i have ever heard of. obviously a very ignorant person spoke those words!

      • adrienne

    • Jenniferthomas

      The first Easter that my son was walking was so magical. We had a wonderful morning as a family, a beautiful church service, and a ton of fun hunting Easter eggs.

    • Kmccobra

      My favorite Easter memories were as a child, waking up that morning to a basket full of goodies, putting on a dress and getting all dolled up whether we were going to Church or not. We would then always have lunch at my Grandparents house where all my cousins would come over and we'd hide/find our decorated eggs and show off our goodies.

    • Jerriducker

      Seeing the bunnys tail caught in the bedroom window. It was awesome.

    • wendy

      We love sharing Easter with our family. We do all of the traditional stuff. We decorate and hide colored eggs then enjoy eating rainbow deviled egg sandwiches! They seem to taste all the better on Easter!!!

    • chel

      Dying eggs with my grandmother!

    • Jnccrocker

      I just love dying eggs with my kids every year. They have so much fun with it and get so creative. And it's just wonderful seeing how different each year is as they grow up. I have never even heard of these resurrection eggs! This is an awesome idea to add to the memories and traditions! Thank you!

    • GAIL BERGER

      my best memory is coloring of the eggs Gail Berger

    • Shannon

      My favorite Easter memory is dressing up and having my entire family together for the special day. I have never seen Resurrection Eggs. What an incredible way to tell my girls about the real meaning of Easter. I can't wait to try to make my own or purchase these!

    • Kara

      I believe I made my profession of faith and joined my church on an Easter Sunday

    • Lmoore77

      I have always loved to dye eggs and now it is so fun to do with my own children. My mom has the Resurrection Eggs and love them. We would love to have our own.

    • Asali18

      When I was 12, my family lived in Phoenix, thousands of miles from our East Coast extended family. We went to see Sedona Red Rocks on a Saturday, and my parents decided that since we were halfway to the Grand Canyon and it was Easter weekend, we should finish the trip. We went to sunrise service at the Grand Canyon in sweats from Walmart, because we were in shorts, but it was only 35 degrees that morning. Totally awesome family memory!!

    • Melissa

      Easter Egg hunts with the really big egg that had an extra special surprise in it.

    • Marlinttjp

      i love coloring easter eggs with my boys

    • Emily

      I always loved making a bunny cake with my grandmother. So cute!

    • olemissmoss

      This is probably different from other posts, but my most memorable Easter was the Easter that brought tears to my eyes because I knew what my Jesus went through for me. That Easter and each one on has been very personal. I get goosebumps at Easter because the resurrection saved me…and my kids…and my friends…and my family…you get it . How absolutely awesome!!

    • Lauren Lane

      I'm 52 now but when I was little my daddy ALWAYS ate the ears off of my chocolate
      Easter Bunny from my basket.

    • Dst14

      I loved being able to wear my hair “out” (no clips, ponytails,etc), having on new things and just feeling pretty. This year my baby girl is old enough to have her first chance to wear her hair “out” on Easter. I haven't told her yet, but my mom and I already laughed that this little girl is going to be too much to stand when she gets to have her hair out and wear a headband (which she is really into, but rarely gets to wear)

    • Ann

      One year our easter baskets were hidden and we had to search for clues to find them. It was a lot of fun for me and my brothers.

    • Tracy Tweedy

      I don't have any really fun Easter memories yet but I so look forward to years to come. I have a 3 1/2 year old who just started loving his Preschool Bible so much so that we read it several times a day. I can't wait to teach him about Easter this year. It's amazing how much his little mind understands now versus years previous. I love being a mom. :)

    • I loved hunting for eggs with my cousins in my Grandma's huge back yard.

    • Ouiz

      My favorite Easter memory is going to Easter Vigil Mass… if that doesn't give you goosebumps, nothing will!

    • Henaomiller

      A local church always has had for the past years an Easter story live nativity, it is so real from Jesus going to the garden to pray to Mary weeping at the empty tomb(goosebumps) but so blessed to be reminded of what Jesus went thru so that we can be saved!

    • Jenna

      I love buying new dresses for my 3 girls. Ones to match if they have them!

    • Ladybrady

      When I was little, we would have to recite speeches for Easter in church. It's a great memory and I smile when I think of it.

    • noteworthymom

      My favorite Easter memory is going to my grandparent's house. They would hold an Easter egg hunt for my siblings, cousins, and me. Each child would be assigned a specific color so everyone found the same amount and got the same prizes. It was so much fun find the “wrong” egg and then pretending that we didn't find anything to fool the others!

    • MelissaW

      I remember the egg hunts my mom used to do for me… Loved finding all the prizes and candy!!!

    • Sabrina37129

      My favorite Easter memory is easter egg hunting when I was a little girl. I know love watching my daughter run around & enjoy the tradition as well

    • Gennylee09

      I've been using a children's Bible story book as a devotional every night. I am always looking for ways to teach my kids and to help them to grow in the Lord.

    • My mom has made me an Easter Basket every year…even when I went to college she had one waiting for me when i'd go home for the weekend. Even when I got married and didn't go home she sent one in the mail for both my hubby and me. Even when I moved 3000 miles away she sent one :) She had promised she always would until she got grandkids, and then she would make them for them! 2 years ago my first sweet baby was born and she received her first Easter basket from Mamaw. And she extended a year and sent me one too. Baskets were always one of my family's favorite traditions growing up and I get such joy from making them for my own family now! I always think of my mom when I'm gathering treats and small gifts for them :)

    • Ldforrest

      Everyone wearing their Easter orchid corsages to church. Also sunrise service was always so beautiful!

    • Jllawlor

      I remember going to the sunrise service with my grandparents when I was a little girl.

    • Jfetty

      I love the excitement surrounding Christ's resurrection! We've made it a habit to pull out our resurrection eggs a couple months early and begin talking and sharing about Christ's amazing love for us!

    • Kdenney

      I hope we win! This is something I want to make a tradition of with my littles!

    • Jenny

      One favorite memory of Easter is always getting Silly Putty in my Easter basket!!

    • Lisagyergyo

      I won the prize egg at the local McDonalds Easter Egg Hunt.

    • Tracy

      Teaching my children the true meaning of Easter through homemade Resurrection Eggs. Our set only has 5 eggs. I would love to share the dozen eggs with my children. Thank you for the giveaway. What a wonderful way to share the Good News!

    • Susanne

      All the new dresses and purses my dear Grandmother would hand stitch for my sister and I!

    • KParrill

      When I was younger I would go to church with my grandparents on Easter Sunday before dawn and stand in the grave yard and our church would have sun rise service! It is something I will never forget! Please say a prayer for my grandfather as he is in the hospital with liver failure! He means so much to our family! What a wonderful man!

    • Leahdpettit

      I have great memories of getting up early and going to the sunrise service.

    • Burroughs85

      My grandmother absolutely LOVED Easter, and she was a very special person in my life. In fact, my oldest daughter was named after her. Unfortunately she has passed away, but my favorite Easter memories are spending Easter with her and seeing the new hat she would get for each year. She loved getting a new outfit with matching hat for sunrise services.

    • Sshirley80

      Easter has always been a great time of family fun for me. My favorite memory is trying to find the “golden egg” during the easter egg hunt! It had $5 in it! That seemed like so much money to me back then! :)

    • Sara

      We did this in Sunday School last year and the kids LOVED it. We made our own eggs and it was great!

    • Christinc21

      my favorite easter memory is me and my 2 sisters dressing in our new dresses and going to church and then hunting eggs in our front yard with my mom and dad then sitting on the lawn and eating the boiled eggs together. I've never seen the resurection eggs but I think it is a great way to share the story of Easter with my 5 year old son and my growing 2 month old daughter.

      Thanks for the giveaway!!!

    • Jenniferb

      dying the eggs and hunting them…we still use real eggs for our egg hunt.

    • L Sherrill

      a family photo of my family including my father who is now deseased in1975 we are all decked out in our easter finest hats gloves etc standing outside of my grandparents house on easter sunday just came home from church…..

    • Eager1998

      Every year we would go to my grandparents house and hunt Easter eggs.Listening to the Easter story and trying to really understand what it means to us. This is a tradition that is still being carried on with my children.

    • Judy

      1990 the birth of my second child on Saturday April 14 day before Easter. What a great gift and memory.

    • paws

      The sense of smell is such a powerful memory stimulator. The scent of melted chocolate mixed with brightly colored easter grass is still easy for me to conjure even now.

    • Sabrina

      My favorite Easter was when I was about five. My Mam~Maw had made be a ceramic Easter bunny and put it in a basket by my bed. 25+ years later and I still have it.

    • Tarynhopper

      I loved sunrise services.

    • Beachrose1

      I remember one Easter morning as a child I went into our foyer only to find gigantic bunny footprints! To this day my parents swear it wasn't them and they don't know how that happened.

    • MsBusaBell

      My Grandmother lived across the small street where we lived. Each year, everyone, and I mean everyone that we all came across (entire neighborhood, city and county) was invited to my Granny's house. It was a huge event. There were always around 100 dozens of colored eggs….around 30 young kids and countless adults for food, fun and an egg hunt complete with prizes. One year, my brother and I learned that if one gave the other almost all of their Easter eggs, one would win a prize for the least eggs found and the other a prize for the most eggs found. LOL That was an awesome year for us…. but we did get “found out”. Awesome memories!!!!

    • MissA'sMommy

      My favorite Easter was 6 years ago – my first Easter as a believer. For the first time, I knew what a blessed occasion I was celebrating! Praise the Lord!

    • Susanizanurse

      Coloring boiled eggs for Easter with my mom then finding them all after mama & daddy hid them outside for me. I'd eat so many of them I'd get sick!

    • bittlemommy

      Waking up on Easter morning and finding the “prize” egg that was hidden in my room while I slept :) Then off to church to learn more about my lord and savior!

    • prov31

      My favorite Easter memory is when my dad would play the song, “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” on the record player during Resurrection week.

    • Gardch

      My fave Easter memory is going to visit my Aunts and Uncle's and we would have a huge egg hunt and the kid that got the most eggs would get to “egg” the Uncle of their choice. It was so much fun and my Aunt would make fried chicken that was tooo die for!! I miss those days! :)

    • Bulldogbob76

      Our Easter Egg hunts consisted of finding eggs with Dares in them… It was like having a double dare party every easter

    • Kelley

      Our annual Easter egg hunt was on Monday after Easter. The entire community participated. It was great!

    • Kelley

    • Summer

      My family use to always buy those gross sugar Easter eggs to hide. My Grandma would freeze and refreeze them each Easter so she did not have to buy more year after year. I can still hear all the adults yelling “DON'T EAT THE EGGS!” to all of us children. :O)

      • adrienne

        hahaha thats hilarious!!! :)

    • Kurt T.

      Favorite memory of easter… Hmm a tough one but one that really pops into my mind is of all of us sitting around and decorating eggs! We went crazy and did all kinds of different designs on the eggs! Was a good Holiday.

    • Kim Owens

      Dying Easter eggs with family. I dyed Easter eggs even in the years before my children born and I will continue to do so after they have flown fron the nest. A favorite every year. Can't dye enough of them.

    • ljisaok

      my favorite memory of easter is shopping for a frilly dress with my mom :)

    • Tabitha

      Going to my Great Grandmas to eat and hunt eggs with all the other kids.

    • KonnieTeaches

      My favorite Easter memory is shopping for a new dress with my mom. I have a bunch of brothers, so every year at Easter my mom and I would have a special girls' day and we would go out and spend the day looking for that perfect dress. I would wake up Easter morning and put it on, and fluff my hair, and fix my shoes, and we would drive to church for Easter Sunday mass and I would sit next to my mom feeling like she and I were just the bees knees because we had such pretty dresses. I can't wait till my daughter is old enough to do that with me!

    • Danamgoshorn

      My favorite Easters were spent at my Grandparents house where there were Easter baskets from parents and grandparents. :)

    • Jhglmullins

      My favorite memory of Easter is Always getting up and going to Sun Rise service at church. It is such a special time to reflect…. I miss that. Easter candy of course, and a stuffed bunny.

    • Janelniles

      getting all dressed up in my Sunday best down to the little white bonnet and purse…

    • savdxgrace

      decorating easter eggs with crayons and then dyeing them! next best thing was the new dress, easter bonnet, shoes and lacy socks! :D

    • Katherine

      My favorite Easter memory was getting to hunt eggs in my grandmothers front yard with all of my cousions. It was great because that was what our families bribed all the kids with to get us to stand still long enough to get some great pictures in our new Sunday clothes before they would let us loose in the front yard.

    • Andrea

      My favorite Easter memory was the last Easter with my dad and my daughter. My daughter was 2 years old, and it was so funny watching her pick up the Easter eggs and drop them all over the ground, then finally get them in her basket. By the end of the egg hunt, all the eggs were cracked and full of dirt. My dad would hide the eggs for my kids as he would hide them for me and my brother when we were younger. My dad died May 11, 2009, and my daughter died September 17, 2009. It was a very difficult year, but that Easter was wonderful. I have some great pictures of my dad and my daughter from that day. We used a picture with an easter egg in her mouth for the program at her funeral. That Easter, the whole family was together, even my husband who works away from home. I believe it was meant to be that way, because I will always remember that Easter.

    • jenniferbjensen

      I love making hot cross buns with my sons. However, two of my favorite Easter traditions are making resurrection rolls. You place spices (cinnamon and sugar) and a marshmallow (Jesus' wrapped body) inside a crescent roll and cook. When you break the roll apart it is empty just like the tomb. My sons are a little old for this now, but they loved it when they were younger. We also made little easter baskets and placed edible items inside it to remind us of the cross (potato sticks), Jesus praying in Gethsemane (pretzels), new life in Christ (jelly beans), spices used to embalm Jesus in the tomb (spice gum drops).

    • Bluwheeler

      My favorite memory is of my oldest daughter two years on Easter. She was almost 2 and participating in our church egg hunt. When she would lean over to pick up more eggs the contents of her basket kept dumping. Watching her determined, yet frustrated, face each time this happened was priceless!

    • adrienne

      we have a lot of fun at easter. going to sunrise service at our church is soooo beautiful. one my favorite childhood memories from easter is when i found out exactly what the true meaning was. i called it resurrection day for quite some time:)

    • Onenonly29172

      Love the family get togethers later in the day with food/and fun times. Later we take those left over boiled eggs and have Creamed Eggs over toast….and remember how this day became Easter.

    • kellylherring

      Having the family come together and sharing the amazing food!! I loved the Easter Egg hunts and my parents still do them.. yes I'm 30 years old and I still hunt eggs at my parents house with my husband, my brother and my sister in law and now my son. Mom and Dad put money in the eggs! :)

    • Katie

      I love Easter. It is a day full of church and family. I always loved Easter egg hunts. Watching my children enjoy them is even more fun. I love dressing them up and taking their picture each year at the egg hunts.

    • Ashley

      Being with all of my family. And the food!!!

    • Peedeeindianlady

      My favorite story of Easter is when we talked my brother-in-law to dress up as the Easter Bunny. We borrowed a costume and oh the look on my nieces face when she saw him at the door. It was priceless. When the Bunny went away my brother-in-law did not return for about two hours. We found him trying to hide outside because the zipper was stuck on his costume. Being from the south is was really warm in that costume. We could not do anything but laugh at him all day.

    • Melissa

      I love to spend time with family and teaching my girls about the true meaning of Easter

    • Teka1

      I love making a tradition of church, egg hunts and food with my family. No better feeling in the world!!

    • Tracy

      Decorating eggs and then of course, the Easter egg hunt!

    • Rhonda

      We always went to church and then my aunt's house. There were lots of family and then we would hide Easter eggs.

    • El

      The true meaning of Easter is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and to remind ourselves and others we would set up a wood cross in our front yard with a purple cloth draped over it. Then we woud stand still to watch the cloth wave against the wind behind the bright yellow sun that beamed down through the purple folds. O how He loves us!

    • Amy L

      I remember when I was about 5, my parents would leave a trail of candy from my bed to the huge purple blowup Easter bunny in our den! It was so exciting as a child and fun to follow the trail to the Easter bunny and my basket! :)

    • Kendrareisinger

      We spent Easter at my Grandmother's home in Palm Beach. The weather and the landscape was beautiful. We had all of the family together for Easter which was amazing because some live in Massachusetts, some in Florida, others in Georgia. We ate outside on decorated tables. We decorated eggs and had an Easter egg hunt with prizes for the children. We took family pictures with the beautiful shrubbery and flowers as the back drop. It was just a beautiful day with family celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus.

    • Iiboysmom

      I don't really have a favorite, but I loved hunting Easter eggs in the backyard as a toddler.

    • Not2bmisstkn

      I never tire of hearing the Easter Story and singing Up from the Grave He Arose. It is such a powerful song. I would really enjoy sharing the Easter story with the grandkids using the resurrection eggs.

    • Melissa

      My favorite memories of Easter are watching the little ones at the egg hunt.

    • Shawnfullcircle

      My kids singing at church, singing how much they love Jesus

    • momof3

      My favorite Easter memory is of my kids hunting eggs inside the house during the pouring rain…I was so disappointed, but they had a great time! And, I was still finding eggs a month later…

    • sharon60

      My favorite Easter memory is dying eggs with my 2 (now grown) boys and then hiding them on Easter morning before they woke up. Now I'm making more favorite memories with my grand children – last year I bought plastic trays (like for snacks) and painted their names in the middle with a rainbow at the top. On the bottom of the girls I painted a butterfly, a lady bug and a flower and on the boy's I painted a truck, a car and a school bus. I wrapped them in cellophane with a small amount of candy, a play doh set and a stuffed animal. These trays are now their favorite thing!

      Last weekend I planted marigold and zinnia seeds in cups with each child. My husband is building little individual wooden planters that I'll paint “so and so's” garden on. We'll put candy, small toys and a plastic watering can in each planter and provide a bag of dirt for each one so they can transfer their seedlings into the planters at Easter. I'm so excited and really looking forward to their visits on Easter.

    • Roz4god

      My most memorable Easter was when I came to the the realization on Easter year 2000 of what Jesus did for me in order for me to have life more abundantly.

    • Alisa

      Easter was my grandmother's favorite time of year. She would get our Easter church outfits planned weeks in advance. We had Easter speeches at church that we practices for weeks on end. Then on Easter weekend she would cook and bake right up to Sunday morning.

    • Jordan

      I've done the Easter egg/resurrection story at my church with the kids. It was such an easy way to tell the true meaning of Easter! I would love to have my own set to do with my kids.

    • Deannemk

      My favorite memory is my Mom making a bunny cake!

    • My favorite Easter memory was waking up Easter morning, and looking out my window to find a 6 FT easter bunny. LOL My dad paid my neighbor to dress up for us. I was convinced for years that the Easter Bunny was real!

    • Jerry Willis9

      Easter Sunday always meant NEW Sunday Shoes!

    • easyrider3

      My favorite memory is always the easter egg hunts the are classic

    • Kelly

      I remember being in Alaska as a little girl and going through SNOW that was as deep as I was tall and finding eggs. I remember there being actual hard-boiled eggs that were dyed and therefore the dye was coming off and mixing in with the snow.

    • We love making Resurrection Rolls with our children for Easter. It is funny to hear our oldest explain to his four little sisters how we, “take marshmallow Jesus roll him in butter and cinnamon so he can get resurrected!” We don't do the Easter Bunny but I hope this will be a tradition they take with them to their families :)

      Easter Egg hunts with my family!

    • stacey

      I always loved a new dress to wear to Church. I also cant forget the year I blamed my dad for eating all my chocolate… it was really my dog.

    • I got my first Easter basket when I was a freshman in college by a church family that I was close to. My best friend and I woke up on Easter and we had to go on a scavenger hunt to find our basket in the house. It was a lot of fun and meaningful since my family never did Easter baskets. I will never forget how they made that one Easter unforgettable.

    • Laceysummey

      One of my favorite memories of Easter as a young child was the Easter Egg Hunts. Still in our Pj's with pink rollers in our hair, running around looking for Easter Eggs that the Easter Bunny left for us….I'm sure the neighbors had a great laugh!

    • Cclbischoff

      Back in 1990 that a GOD still loved me after a serious multitude of sins and that I oould be forgiven and the truth set me free and my first Easter after submitting was the best day I have had. Every Easter I am so humbled and grateful fo what Jesus The Lord did!

    • Tnlaw2

      My favorite memory as a child was getting all dolled up. My sisters and I would get new dresses and get our hair done, we would step into church looking our Sunday best!

    • Bryson1972

      When I was 7 my mother was in the hospital at easter for a back surgery. She had thought about my sister and I ahead of time and had us a basket make. It was egg shape and made out of yarn. ( a balloon was blown up and yarn wrapped around it, then some type of glue, the ballon was popped and the yarn was hardened. A hole was cut out and grass and goodies was in side.) It was the most special basket I had ever gotten and my mother was in pain and in the hospital and she still was thinking of her children. That easter was spent in the hospital and for us it was amazing! 32 years later and I can still see my beautiful basket!

    • carmen

      My favorite easter memory is our Easter Dinner we had every year. Eggplant Parmesan. :)

      I rememeber my birthday falling on Easter one year, and my mom made me an easter bunny coconut cake. I'll never forget that!

    • Saraarwen

      We always have a big family dinner after our morning church service on Easter. I love it and my kids do, too!

    • Tracey

      I remember attending Easter sunrise service with my family at church while I still lived at home.

    • Erin

      I remember the Easter bunny cakes my mom would make for us. I hope to make those for my children!

    • ArlRAWL

      In the fourth grade my parents gave me a set of the Chronicles of Narnia on Easter morning. Every time I reread them I see the inscription on the inside cover and reflect on how lucky I am to have my fabulous parents.

    • Elizabeth

      My favorite memory on Easter was the egg hunt with my siblings. My dad always filled a few eggs with money so we were always excited when we opened our eggs, hoping we were the lucky one to get an egg full of dollars and not the egg full of pennies.

    • Stephaniehall00

      My favorite memory of Easter is getting dressed up for church. My sister and I always had a pretty new pastel dress and a hat.

    • Marenda72

      My favorite memory is when my sister and I got a new dress every year for Easter Sunday.

    • Krea1005

      I would love this set of eggs! It is the most powerful story ever told, and teaching it to children in this way is a great idea!

    • Kristina

      My favorite Easter memory is hunting eggs at my Grandparents house with my Cousins. Even if it was raining, they would hide the eggs in the house! It was great!

      When I learned about Resurrection Eggs, I decided to make my own!! I collaged the plastic eggs and then typed up the scripture in a really small font and rolled them up like scrolls. Each egg had scripture and a small trinket representing the scripture. And I made each trinket out of clay!! It was really fun and I enjoyed doing it. But more than doing it, I enjoy getting them out every Easter and remembering, now with my grandchildren, the most important story ever!!

    • Erika_lynnd

      My favorite Easter memory is from my sophomore year in high school. The church I had been attending did a drama set to the song “Above All,” and on that morning 10 years ago I gave my life to the Lord. I am so thankful for all He has done in my life, and I can't wait to share the joy and hope of many Easters to come with my children!

    • Molly

      Big family dinners after the Easter service at church. I loved being all together as a family.

      I have two special Easter memories. First, my husband proposed to me on Easter Sunday at a family get together—gave me the ring inside an Easter egg. A second precious memory is that I got to hold my son for the very first time on Easter Sunday. He was born with a diaphragmatic hernia and had surgery at 6 days old. I was not able to hold him until he was 10 days old. The doctors and nurses went through a lot of trouble getting the IV's, tubes, and the ventillator repositioned so I could hold my little miracle for about an hour. Easter holds a very special place in my heart because of these memories!

      My Grandmother, who is no longer with us, used to give us the best and biggest Easter baskets every year. She was our Easter bunny and she left everything in TRASH BAGS! There was just too much for a basket I guess. :) She loved her grandkids and I know she's in Heaven know looking down on me to see what I do for my son this year.

    • Jecs57

      I remembe my Daddy always bought me a corsage to wear to church on Easter morning. We always got a new pair of white gloves, too.

    • ruth ann

      i think my favorite memory was as a little girl dyeing eggs with my parents and then having an easter egg hunt

    • FrancesKampe

      Every easter is special to me, cuz its my fave holiday…….i know we are supposed to leave our fave memory but i just want to say that i am thankful for all the easter's our family is going to get to spend together. For the past year we have been dealing with a daughter going through cancer but she is doing much better thank god! I just would love one of these sets to show the kids we have that we can have more fun than just with candy. Happy Easter, love Frances

      Fav. memory is going to my grandma's house and hunting for easter eggs with all my cousins. The one who found the golden egg got $1.00!

    • colleen s

      My favorite Easter is probably a tie over the last 10 years with all my children. It is so much more special with your family.

    • Ohthreegirls

      My girls first Easter where they actually got to hunt eggs! Their look of amazement at all the colors and shapes.

    • Judith

    • Rerdmann2

      My favorite Easter tradition is hiding the Easter eggs for my oldest daughter and niece and nephew. Now that my one year old is older we may let her join inon the fun. It will be fun to see the expression on her face.

    • Adittyzacarias

      My favorite Easter memory was our first Easter with our daughter! Never grew up celebrating Easter but my husbands mom decided we would go to lunch and then go to the park abd go egg hunting. It was 6 adults and my daughter was the only baby and her aunt went shopping for all the eggs and filled them up. So my daughter had this beautiful long pink fluffy dress and she had a blast. And to me it meant so much because they are not very affectionate but to know they went out of their way to make it that special it means so much!

    • A.L.

      My favorite Easter memory is going to church with my parents, getting my easter basket, and then having a big potluck that afternoon :).

      Getting a new outfit for Sunday morning church. Also, the beauty of the day…Jesus seems to make every flower sparkle with praise to him! I just love it!

    • Summer

      My favorite Easter memory is from about 30 years ago. We live in what was once my grandparents house. And as a child my two older brothers and I would visit on Easter, dye eggs, and have an egg hunt in the backyard. My grandmother had a large golden egg in which she would put $5 and hide. Each year it was the special egg that we all wanted to find. But being the youngest, I never found it. But I remember one year my grandmother helping me “find” the egg inside the opening of the doghouse, and inside was the 5 dollar bill and a special note to me, telling me how special I was to her. I think of this every Easter and almost every time I go into my back yard. Very sweet.

    • Bethanystover

      My mamaw would have a little prize table and everything had a number. If we found the egg with that number we received that prize.

    • Jguckel

      Helping with the neighborhood easter egg hunt. I would love to share this set with my daughter who is 5.

    • K2sfi

      Favorite Easter memory is really two: One, I was 8 and my mother had had back surgery and had to lay flat on her back for 3 months. The Saturday afternoon before Easter, Mr. Henry Saxon, the Owner of Saxon's Candies, known in the 50's and 60's all over the Southeast, came to our tiny little brick house and brought the largest Easter Basket and Easter Bunny I had ever seen. My eyes were big as saucers. The other memory was getting up early the next morning and going to the community Easter Sunrise service in my new dress and new white gloves and new white shoes. God is good.

    • Camsmom

      I always remember my mom..making baskets and we would hunt for eggs ..

    • jessica

      LAST year i made one of these for my then 2 year old and 13 week old. would love to have a NICE set for years to come!!

    • Couponingchick

      My favorite Easter was when I was 8 years old and woke up to a real live pet bunny in my basket -he was so cute. We kept him in a cage outside so consequently he caught pnuemonia from the cold. Unlike the resurrection….my “snuggles” went to be with Jesus about two months later and never returned. But that is still my favorite Easter ever :)

    • Tryingtocoupon44

      My favorite Easter memory was at my hometown church in Dublin, GA. It was a great day because my oldest brother was saved and I knew I would see him in heaven!

      Our church started the Cross Walk (which is a large cross and we walk through Lexington) and to watch my children and husband while carrying the cross is a very humbling experience. We will be doing our annual walk on Easter weekend.

    • One Easter, my mom did a treasure hunt with little messages to help me find my Easter basket filled with goodies!!

    • Karensweeney2002

      Favorite memories include putting rabbit ears on my Cocker Spaniel, Chipper, and having him carry an Easter Basket into the Rest Homes we visited!!! The residents were so happy to see him!!!

    • Racheloburns

      Easter egg hunts with all of my family~

    • Triozoo

      First of all, Easter is absolutely my favorite holiday. Christmas has gotten so commercialized, it has certainly taken away from the reason for the season. Easter, to me, is all about family and praise! Coloring eggs together, egg hunts together, family lunch after SonRise services and activities. The most glorious day of the year for me. Am most thankful to have been able to bring my dying father to SonRise service before he passed later, in May, 2008. My family and my church family would really love a set of Resurrection Eggs to share! Thank You Alison Guyton

    • Coupongirlsc

      I'm a Christian and we go to Easter Sunrise Service. When I was a child we did this too. My Mom made us an Easter Basket with candies that she knew we liked. We could see our baskets and then go on to Sunrise Service at church with our whole family. The most beautiful thing about Easter is knowing that because of believing and trusting in Jesus, we will go to Heaven one day!

    • luiza

      One year, while in a foreign country we decided to dye eggs for Easter, although fresh eggs were hard to come by and expensive.
      One interesting memory was having to dunk each egg in a bowl of water and discard any that floated to the top (the rotten ones!). The children were crouched around this big bowl and they'd almost hold their breath as the eggs were carefully placed in the water. There would be this moment of suspense and then cheering, for any good egg that didn't swim back up.

    • Hairdomary

      Decorating eggs for the first time with our first child. He was so excited that he kept rocking back and forth from foot to foot the entire time! My husband and I giggled the whole way through! Never have I enjoyed that part of Easter tradition more than that day. :)

      My favorite is the midnight mass, the beauty of His resurrection!

    • Jmholley

      Hiding Easter with my girls and their family/friends!

    • This looks great! I have 2 favorite memories in one: We always get together as a family to paint Easter eggs. Then on Easter the adults hide all the eggs (real ones, not plastic with candy inside) and the kids would find them. Then the kids would hide them again for the adults to find! We always had fun finding the ones we painted and seeing the artistic designs.

      Finding the “Golden Egg” at our Family Easter Egg Hunt!!!

    • Cindersand1024

      Growing up in a large family (7 kids) with a very frugal father, we did not get traditional easter baskets, but that's ok. My mother would make homemade chocate bunny candies and chocolate filled eggs. Then they would fill up old whip cream or butter containers and label the lid with each of our names. Then Dad would hide the “baskets” somewhere-anywhere and you had to find it. It was fun when you found your sibling's basket before they did. It really was fun! I think when my kids get a little older, I'm going to do the same thing!
      I thought it was so weird that other people get toys and money and things in their baskets. I thought it is only for candy :)

      My favorite Easter memory is when I used to do Easter egg hunts with the children at church. Our church doesnt' do that anymore. A tradition sadly not done anymore, since it isn't a religious.

    • Workmom1

      Hiding the eggs for the children then not remembering where I hid them myself then the dog walks up licking this mouth.

    • Hate2cleen

      We had just moved to Charleston, SC from Lumberton, TX. We were still in the hotel and it was Saturday night. I hadn't bought anything for Easter yet and at 11:00pm that night I was at Walmart buying Easter baskets, candy and other goodies for my girls who were 6 and 7 years old. When I got back to the hotel at midnight the girls were still up (nothing had been normal for a few days) so I had to leave their stuff at the main desk of the hotel. Finally after awhile they went to sleep and I could go and get their baskets so they could see what the Easter Bunny had left them the next morning. I'm sure that there will be other Easters that I remember but that one will never be forgotten.

      Favorite memory- coming up out of the “watery grave” on the day we celebrate Jesus' victory over the grave. Hooray!

    • Bethany

      I was around 10 and it started to snow on our drive to church. It was very surreal, since we weren't used to snow that late in the year.

      my favorite memory of Easter is my 9month old daughter in her first Easter bonnett. she was beautiful!

    • amanda

      I love Easter! It is one of my favorite holidays and the meaning and time with family is very special to me. However, one of my favorite Easter memories happened when my grandma placed the eggs outside for our Easter egg hunt and when we went to go hunt most of them were missing. We found out that most of them had been eaten by the neighbor's dog! It made for a great laugh and gave us an excuse to dye more eggs!

    • Stacy

      My daughter would love these! My favorite memory from Easter would be dressing my daughter up for Easter for the first time. It was also fun to see her celebrate in her first egg hunt barely able to walk b/c she was just barely one & she loved it! :-) Thanks so much!

    • My favorite memory of Easter is one that I spent with my cousins. We didn't get to see them much as kids.

    • Atbbbprice

      My favorite memory was Easter 1989. I had not been in touch with my real dad in 6 or more years. He remarried and had other children and just got busy. I put an Easter card on the windshield of his car and let him know how unloved I felt and forgotten about. Shortly after this, he wrote a letter to me and mailed it to my moms. It said how much he did love me and he was sorry. My dad always told people if it were not for me, he would not be in my life. We had a great relationship after this. He walked me down the isle. Was around for the birth of my 3 children. My dad passed away the Monday after Thanksgiving 2009. I miss him very much. My stepmom knew what a special holiday this was for my dad and I so Christmas of 2010 she made me the Easter tie ornament. It is beautiful, it is an Angel made from one of my dads Easter ties. I Love Easter, My earthly father came back into my life and Jesus rose from the grave. God is Good.

      My favorite memory was only 2 Easter's ago because it was the first Easter I was saved and I truly got was Easter was really about!

    • Jennifer31

      Last year was my favorite Easter yet. We celebrated my daughter's first Easter. She loved everything in her basket and looked so cute, too. It was especially special to reflect back on all that God has done for me in my life and all because He sent His Son to be our Savior. I can't wait to share that message for our daughter and to see her live her life out in a way that others may come to know Him as well.

    • MJ

      My favorite memory is when I was 10 my Mom let me color the egg. I thought all the eggs had been boiled so I colored every egg in the refrigerator. You can imagine my Mom's shock when she opened the refrigerator and found all the eggs colored since she had only boiled haf of them! I can remember her trying all kinds of ways to decide which eggs were hard boiled and which were not:)

      A favorite memory from my childhood was the Easter Sunday that I found the golden egg in our church egg hunt. I remember being SO excited and my prize was a stuffed Garfield I believe. I didn't get new toys very often, so this was such a big deal to me!

    • busymom4kids

      My favorite Easter memory is going to my grandparent's farm after church and proudly standing with my sister and brother in front of the fireplace while my grandmother took a picture with her instant polaroid. We would stand around anxiously waiting for our picture to show through-great memories!!

    • My favorite Easter memory is actually quite funny. When we were teenagers my sister learned how to blow the yolk out of an egg. It was so funny watching her turn bright red as she tried to get the yolk through a pin hole as we were dying Easter eggs.

    • Labteach3

      I always remember going to my grandmother's and hiding Easter eggs with coins in them. The egg we wanted most was the egg with the $10 bill in it! We thought that was the best!!!

    • Jana Brown

      My favorite memory is from last Easter. My brother came in town to spend the holiday with us and we died Easter eggs with my boys for the first time. My brother passed away in February, so this Easter will be especially hard, though I am forever thankful for the amazing Easter we celebrated as a family last year.

    • Amberbedenbaugh

      My favorite memory was 5 years ago. My mother passed away the night before Easter and I had to figure out how to tell my then 3 year old daughter about it. With tears in my eyes I explained to her that Nonnie wasn't with us anymore and that she was now in Heaven with God and Jesus. She looked up at me with the most excited little look and said ” Yay she can have and Easter egg hunt with God, I bet He really likes Peeps just like me.” It was exactly what i needed to hear in that moment. She was right my mother was celebrating Jesus's resurrection with her own coming home trip.

      my favorite memory of Easter is when my dad was still living I was 8 yrs old, & we had the biggest Easter gathering at church, I remember learning what the real meaning of Easter was, then celebrating it with a whole new meaning, it made it mean alot more

    • Stephwitfaith3

      Watching my kids run around the yard trying to get as many eggs as possible. My lil girl her first year stopped after she found every egg to open it up and see what was inside and eat it. I have pics of her with candy running down her chin with her lil egg in her hand while everyone else is running around getting more …..lol….the resurrection eggs are very neat by the way…i honestly have never seen them but i think that would be a very fun way to share the easter story!!!

    • Collins-04

      My favorite memory was last year when we decided to go to the zoo for Easter and I had my 6 year old and 1 year old and it was a blast to watch them play and pick up as many eggs as they could :) it was over filling the basket we bought them and my oldest was still trying to put more in it. good memories :)

      • Collins-04

        one more which it the best part of it was that my oldest was telling what she had learned in church and about Jesus dieing on the cross and raising the 3rd day, it is such a blessing when they are telling you and wanting to share :)

    • My favorite Easter memory is helping my mom and Aunt dye Easter eggs on Saturday then waking up on Easter morning finding my Easter basket going to Easter sunrise service and hunting eggs with my sister, cousins and neighbors over and over til the adults were too tired to hide them any more. Then repeating history with my son, nieces, nephews and cousins.

      not exactly a memory, but i've heard the story often enough from my mom that when i was 3, my parents woke up to find that all of the chocolate in my brothers and my baskets were gone. I had fed my brother the chocolate through the bars of his crib since he was only 1.

    • Tara

    • Kelly K

      I would have to say watching the kids Hunt for all the hidden eggs filled with money and candy!

    • Christiecoupon

      My favorite Easter was the first year they did a candy hunt at my church. They did a whole seris on the resurection leading up to Easter and they acted out Mary finding the tomb empty, It was great!!!

    • dana

      My favorite Easter Memory as a kid was doing an Easter Egg Hunt with 1000 other children on a golf course and then searching through the many eggs with my sister! My favorite Easter as a parent was last year with our family of four. It was the First easter with my two kids and we knew we couldn't have anymore. God's blessings just poured out that day seeing what He had given me and getting to share God's love for us with our two year old.

    • Barbie

      I remember my mother making all her granddaughters smocked Easter dresses and they wore them to church and we had pictures made for her. She died this past year. Miss her so!

    • Joan

      I loved to go to My Aunt Susie's house and we would always have an Easter egg hunt in the front yard!

    • Ruth

      One of my.favorite Easter memories is the tradition of dying Easter eggs with my family. It was something we always did and looked forward to every year. It was a special time around the table!

    • Jellybean19

      I remember having a new Easter dress handmade by my mama every year when I was little.

    • All_mist

      My favorite was when my first child was born..right before Easter ..dressed him up like alittle man and took him to church..it made the Easter more real than Ever..I realized how much God loved us because of how much I loved him..

    • Jill

      My favorite memory of Easter is spending it with my family. There were 5 children in my family growing up and we didn't have a lot of money but the Easter bunny didn't care! We always had the best Easter baskets and of course, my mother always cooked a delicious Sunday dinner. Something else I remember from that time is a saying my mother always had –“If it rains on Easter Sunday, it will rain for 7 Sundays afterwards.” My mother had so many sayings like that and now that she is gone, I remember them all so fondly!

    • sharron johnson

      Favorite easter memory…family gathering at my mom and dad's for a huge meal after church then a massive easter egg hunt in out neighborhood. Hope to conitnue that tradition too.

    • Pamela

      As a little girl my cousin and I would compete hard to see who would find the most eggs. Since we were both only children we were each other's only real competition. The years that he couldn't be there I didn't enjoy the egg hunt near as much. I love to watch my own children….they act like my cousin and I did. He died when I was in college but I continue to enjoy my memories.

    • Laura

      One of my favorite memories of Easter is when I was 7 or 8 years old, and getting to be in the “grown-up” church musical on Easter Sunday evening. The kids got to line the aisle and hold palm branches as Jesus came down the “street.” We also got to be in the background of some other scenes in the musical. Being a part of the play helped me “see” everything that happened during that important week in Jesus' life and made Easter much more meaningful to me as a child.

    • Pcmcmillan

      My favorite Easter memory is being at Venture Out Resort in Panama City Beach with my children and grandchildren. The Easter egg hunt for the little ones on the day before Easter and the Easter morning sunrise service on the beach was awesome! This has become our family tradition!

    • Jcassidy3279

      Spending time with my family eating a huge lunch and then having a big egg hunt afterwards.

    • SonjaG123

      I fondly remember dressing in our Sunday best (usually matching homemade dresses for my sister and me), attending church, eating lunch with all my relatives at my grandparent's house, hunting eggs with all my cousins, and peeling and eating them on the front porch when we were finished hunting. Those were the good old days.

    • CorrieH

      I remember when my son was a toddler and I took him to a neighborhood egg hunt. They had various sections roped off each age group. When they yelled, “Go!” to start the hunt, my son bolted as fast as he could… all the way across the hunt area to the back rope. He thought it was a race! I had to run to the end and turn him around as I re-explained that he was to pick up the plastic eggs and put them in the basket. Once he got the hang of that, for every egg he would put in the basket, another egg would fall out. By the end the hunt, I think he had about three eggs but he had a blast!

    • Sekellickh

      my favorite memory was just always being with my family at church even family members who did not normally come to church would come on Easter. I had heard about these eggs they seem like such a great teaching tool.

    • M C McBride

      My childrens first Easter egg hunt. I had more fun than I ever did when I was young and hunting Easter eggs. Now that I have my first grandchild the fun will begin again. I cant wait.

    • Naz013

      My favorite Easter memory is finally realizing why we celebrate Easter! As a new Christian, I had always thought that Easter was about the Bunny leaving you candy and going out to eat….but I'm so happy to now call it Resurrection Day and celebrate the Life I now have in Christ!

    • ShelleyNC

      My favorite memory of Easter is spending a family vacation in Florida during Easter with my grandparents. We dyed Easter eggs together and went to the beach on Easter Sunday.

    • Lisa

      My parents ALWAYS put a can of Planter's cashew nuts in my Easter basket. It was the only time of year I got them, and that made them extra special!

    • Brinry

      My favorite memory of Easter is the annual Easter egg hunt in my gradparents backyard. My sister and two brothers had so much fun looking for the hidden eggs in the tall grass.

      I will always remember the Easter sunday mornings of getting to see my dad preaching the real meaning of Easter while sitting next to my mother on the front pew, dressed in frilly socks and lacey, brightly colored dresses. After church we would go to my grandmother's for lunch and egg hunts with my cousins. We still do this today but with my own children. We were always allowed to enjoy the pretend part of Easter but taught the REAL reason for ALL seasons! Thank God for loving christian parents!

    • Candd_94

      Is teaching my children the true meaning of Easter. The family being together for dinner and easter egg hunt. coloring the eggs the night before.

    • Save4four

      We would go to my grandparents after church. We ate lunch together with aunts, uncles and cousins (at the kids table). We would change into our play clothes to get ready for the Easter egg hunt. My grandpa would have 1 golden egg with $5 in it and a few regular eggs with $1 in them. The rest had candy in them. I remember my Mom and aunt racing to get that golden egg! My grandfather had a blast and we did too!

    • Tayl8497

      Love the idea of Resurrection Eggs, what a great way to teach kids about Easter. We will definetly be doing this when my kiddos get a little older

    • Brooke Buffington

      Two Easters ago, I woke up, so excited to get my 1 year old out of his crib, to the kitchen to see his Easter basket, and off to church. To my surprise/shock/dismay he had taken it upon himself to clear every last bit of poop out of his diaper in order to decorate himself, the crib, and the walls. Needless to say, he provided me with an Easter I will never forget. ;). We even made it to church on time, and he was the cleanest boy there.

    • A_faith_stewart

      My whole family (8 cousins including me) hunting eggs after Church and lunch. My grandmothers homemade rolls were the first prize of the day…after amzing worship of course;)

    • Hwillsinsavannah

      My favorite Easter memory was last year with my 2 daughters when my husband and I had them go a hunt for their baskets—we left notes from the Easter Bunny all around the house and they had to read them and then run to the next spot that he hopped to. It was so fun and enjoyable to watch them!!

    • keilah

      When the Easter bunny came to visit our house! It was my neighor and dad's best friend dressed up. His 2 daughters and my brother and I were playing on our swingset and he came bounding through the yard and we were SO excited!!

    • Paulette

      Easter Sunday the little ones would wake up to find their Easter baskets. We all dressed up to attend Easter services and then drove over to Grandma's for her Easter egg hunt. Later all of our extended family memebers got together for dinner.
      The Resurrection Eggs are a great gift and a good way to help the kids understand the Easter Story.

It is their tradition that everyone brings fresh flowers to the sunrise service and places them on the cross. It is beautiful by the time the morning service takes place.

    • Ritaannebrock

      I love talking about Christ with my daughter every year. Her amazement never ceases to amaze me.

    • Pstrader

      My favorite Easter story was when all 10 of my aunts and uncles used to get together at grandmas. They would hide different colored eggs depending on your age, But then they had prize eggs that were gold or silver. The last year we did this I would the gold egg and I got $5 but the beswt part was I got to spend the night at grandmas. This was such a rare treat because the rule was you had to be 13 before you could stay overnight and I was only 10. Glad I won because my grandmother died before the next Easter. And all the big family get togethers stopped.

    • Laura80

      When my kids were little. They were so excited over Easter all the family came to together to celebrate and play under the water sprinkler even if it was chilly out they had to do it. In and out screaming its cold very cute.

    • Kimberly

      My Easter memory is going to church as a family and watching the passion play . It was so awesome !!!

    • Jean Felder

      My favorite memory is driving up from VA to see my grandparents in NYC as a child and seeing how over the top my grandmother decorated their house. She had a little Easter village on her bay window ledge. I loved waking up Easter morning to find an Easter basket and huge chocolate bunny (solid back then) and then head to church w/ my grandpa.

      My favorite memory of Easter is getting all dressed in our new dresses and my Dad always had coursages for me, my sister and my Mom to wear to church. He was a special guy.

    • Rachel H.

      My favorite Easter memory is watching the cross at church come to life. During the service families were asked to bring fresh flowers to the front of the church. A couple of people would dress the cross with the flowers that were brought. It gave a great visual reminder that Christ is alive.

    • Carolinablueyes84

      My favorite memory is the huge meal with all the great southerm food I dont know how to cook and all the family you rarely ever see.

    • Lydia

      I love Easter – spring and the picture of new life all around me is such a great visual picture, but as a kid obviously I loved hunting for my Easter basket at my house with my five siblings. If we found someone else's basket we weren't suppose to tell them where it was. Now I'm excited about starting traditions with my three young daughters and these Resurrection Eggs would be awesome!

    • Alison

      my favorite memory is the Sunrise service at church. We got up early and had breakfast at church, then the service. Afterwords it was a traditional meal followed by egg hunting!!

    • Chewyemprest

      Time with family going to sunrise service

    • Susan

      My favorite easter memory includes hunting eggs with my grandfather. that one will always be a part of my Easters.

    • susan

      my old church used to sing the hallelujah chorus as the recessional song every year – i had never head it sung on easter but it is the most perfetly appropriate joyous song to end church. it never failed to bring tears to my eyes.

    • Brandy

      I remember when, as the kids in the family started to get a little older. The adults began putting some change in a few of the eggs for us to find, and of course the rest remained candy filled

    • Kevinstacy

      My favorite memory was when I got the prettiest white dress with a satin, blue sach around my waist. I was probably around seven or eight. Good memories!

    • Lynnw

      My favorite memory was knowing that every Easter my sisters and I would always get a new dress for church. We did not have money so a new dress was very special to us. Since we did not have alot we did not get Easter baskets we got one of those paddles with a ball and it. It had green grass with maybe one piece of candy but of course after the ball broke the paddle was used for other things such as getting spankings,it still was a a good memory however. I am 59 years old now but I will never forget those days.

    • April Hunt

      as a little girl we would always have to go pick out a dress for church…and it was something I always looked forward to!

    • Cheryl H1

      My favorite memory of Easter is the joining, worshiping and dining with the whole family; aunts, grandparents, cousins, everyone under the same roof. Chaos and love.

    • Felise

      My favorite Easter was when we were stationed in Hawaii and went to the beach after waking up and searching for hidden Easter eggs. The beach beats chocolate every time.

    • Betty

      My favorite memory of Easter was going to Maine on vacation with my parents & being SO surprised that the Easter Bunny was able to find me!

    • Tinamatlack

      We always had the same coconut chocolate crosses at the little church I grew up in.I started out hating the chocolate coconut taste but when just anticipating it and it's unique taste I eventually came around.

    • Becka

      My favorite Easter memory is that as kids we were never allowed to go outside bare foot until Easter, so now as adults we all make a big deal about taking our shoes off and running around outside.

    • steph

      talking to my daughter about the real meaning of easter.

    • Ari0429

      My favorite memory is my mom dressing my sisters and I in dresses alike that she sewed herself. Mine was always yellow. This is my 13th year without her. Wish she could see my babies.

    • Jtro25

      Getting all dressed up for Easter service as a little girl with my hat and pretty little dress. The we would go to church and learn that the tomb was empty and He Had Risen! Then we would all get together at Grandma's house to hide easter eggs and eat wonderful food! My favorite time of year to be with family besides Christmas of course! :)

    • Lorannclark

      My mom has this set and we have each used it in the children's Sunday school and once with the congregation @ church. This year I have taken it to the nursing home where I work to tell the story to some of the residents. This is an awesome learning tool.

      As far as my Easter memories, as a child, my grandparents and cousins would all come over to our house or we would all go to my grandparents to eat. I remember Easter baskets, sometimes with homemade candy that my grandma and mom would make with candy molds. We never got a lot, but mom always got up some candy and maybe some socks and a simple plain t-shirt, but I always loved it. It isn't necessary to give big lavish gifts. I remember Easter dresses, hunting eggs, coloring eggs, etc. As an adult, I love going to see a local play “The Power of His Church” and hope that when my husband and I have kids someday that we will continue that as a family tradition.

    • Vicandamanda00

      My favorite memory of Easter is getting my daughter dressed for her 1st Easter.

    • My first Easter with my husband.

    • Sillysnicks

      My favorite memory still happens…my parents still hide eggs for my sister, my husband, and me and we are all in our 30s! It is so much fun to act like a kid and find those eggs. Plus, I like to win, too!

    • Hkitty_65

      We also do Resurrection eggs each year at Church. When I was 9 or 10, my daddy got me a White Choc. Russell Stover Solid Easter Bunny. YUMMY! I had wanted one for a long time and he remembered!

    • Wanda Cummings

      My favorite Easter memory is watching my son hunt for Easter eggs that last year that he was alive.

    • Kkeyes

      We dyed Easter eggs together every yr. Loved that!

    • Cabreban

      My favorite memory on Easter is when my grandfather preached his last sermon.

    • vickie

      My true desire for my grandchildren would come to knoe Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. What better way to make the message clear to little hearts during Easter.
      This would be a great Sunday school addition also.

    • Dphil

      My favorite Easter memory is when I was a young girl and we would have church all day on Sunday including dinner on the ground and a big Easter egg hunt. Of course this included a new outfit down to new underwear!

    • glsmith

      Easter has always been my favorite holiday, but my favorite memory is spending Easter with my Grandma and coloring eggs. And her letting me eat to much candy!

    • Jackiemarie7

      My favorite Easter memory was hunting Easter eggs one year at the camp house my grandparents bought. The whole family was there. I love looking at the pictures from that year.

    • Sherry

      My favorite Easter memory was of my grandmother's Easter Dinner spread. So enormous that an entire room was set aside just for the desserts! There was something for everyone, from Coconut Cake, Banana Pudding, Brownies, Cookies, and pie,oh my! Each lovingly handmade by my dear sweet grandma.

    • Camiele

      As a child–Easter egg hunts and time with family. As an adult–starting traditions and sharing the special time of Easter with my own children.

    • Teri

      I love my time with family. I will also be starting family traditions with my son as he is only 2 years old.

    • Donna

      Having my family come home with all six grangchildren looking so beautiful and excited about the egg hunt we always have and having grandpaw tell them the Easter Story and the real meaning of Easter. Everyone always looks forward to the meal also

    • MAM2009

      I always remember church, egg hunts, and a BIG family meal. I hope to carry on these traditions with my daughter as well.

    • The Kohlbusches

      I love our Easter lunch with my family!

    • Robin

      I love the memory of hunting easter eggs with my sister and all my cousins. My family always hid money inside the eggs so you never knew how much you were going to rack up!

    • Ashley

      As a child, my gramps would hide Easter eggs for my cousins, brother, and I. He loved doing this for us. Each of us would have a special egg hidden in the mix, with a certain surprise inside..usually money. I couldn't wait each year to go and hunt these eggs. Sure did miss this tradition when he passed away.

    • CarolynB

      Growing up , I remember going to church and then when we got home we got to “hunt” for our basket that was always hidden by our Easter Bunny.

    • Christian

      My mom would dress my sister and me up in matching dresses with Easter hats. We are talking the whole 9 yards- tights, panent leather shoes and purses.

    • Alicia

      I will never forget wearing my ruffly easter dress and going to my grandparents house on Easter. They always had the biggest Easter egg hunt. But best of all, I got to spend the day with my granparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We had the best family gatherings back then.

    • Singleton2002

      My parents always made Easter so special. I always got an Easter dress and the Easter bunny came every year and my parents always taught the true meaning of Easter and the resurrection. A funny memory…our cats caught a bunny and left it on the front porch Easter morning. My brothers were devastated that the cats had killed the Easter bunny! They did not go to church happy that morning.

    • kpscoups

      My best memory of Easter was the last Easter spent with my Mom before she died in May, 2009. She had so much fun with my little girls–making them laugh with her pretend bunny ears and setting up a super special egg/basket hunt. I miss her so terribly, especially in the Spring. BUT thanks be to God that she lives with our Lord Jesus Christ, in perfect peace.

    • Raptoud

      These are great.

    • Awcw2boys

      My Baptism!

    • Raptoud

      My favorite Easter memory as a child was putting on an Easter parade for the grandparents after visiting their Sunday service.

    • Wanda

      My favorite memory of Easter is all the time I spent with my mom getting everything ready for this special day. Our hair, our outfits, coloring eggs, baking & decorating cookies, the egg hunt, the pretty Easter basket full of goodies, Sunday School and how happy all my friends were especially that day, and then all the family gathering for Easter dinner.

    • Julie

      One of my favorite Easter memories was when I was a kid, sometime before third grade, and my Grandma (Dad's Mom) bought me the most beautiful Easter dress. I remember egg hunting and church in that dress, and then wore it nearly every time I went to their house to visit until I outgrew it!

    • Lillarkk

      Best Easter memory was my sons first Easter. I absolutely love being able to surprise him (and now his sister too) with all the fun exciting surpises and activities that come with this fun holiday.

    • Jewels

      One of my dearest friends, a single female, adopted three boys. She's a single mom and a schoolteacher. Shortly after, she brought them over to meet Aunt Julie and Uncle Derek and their first major Easter egg hunt. They were so fun to watch. Now we look forward to them coming for Easter every year.

    • Mac's Mommy

      Last Easter was the best – my son's first Easter!

    • Gayle

      My favorite memory of Easter was the year my older sister had mumps and could not “get dressed up” and have her picture made with me and my other two sisters. So we have a picture of her standing at the front door with her pajamas on!

    • Aangel6073

      my favorite memory of Easter was when I was pregnant with my son (who was due in May). We had multiple failed pregnancies and this pregnancy all was looking promising. As I watched my grandmother in law with the other great grandchildren I prayed that my son would be so blessed to know her. That she would make it to meet her only grandson's child. She was declining in her health and wanted so much to meet our blessing. She made it to meet our son and to the Easter after that!

    • Cdmmortgage

      My fondest memories of Easter are when I was a single mom with two small girls and no money for Easter Baskets. My girls knew even then that Easter was not about baskets and candy, but about Christ, but a mom never wants to see her girls go without. I had decided we would color eggs for cheap and hide them outside for fun, which we did, and it was great, but on top of that, my God used my Dad (Grandaddy) to brighten their day with a visit on Sunday afternoon. And guess what Grandaddy had? Two of the biggest Easter baskets my girls had ever seen!! God is absolutely wonderful especially when we put Him first!!!

    • Hannah_Swindle

      My favorite memory of Easter was when the whole family would go to Sunrise service, then to my grandparents house to hunt easter eggs. We didn't get much candy during the year, but on Easter we had a whole basket full. Now that I am a mom I realize how much work my parents did to make Easter so special!

    • Lunch after church at Grandma's and eating the best pecan pie.

    • Amy

      My favorite memory of Easter was the flower coursages my Dad would get me, my sister and mom on Easter morning. We would always wear them to church all dressed up and then come home and have a huge ham dinner. That is my fondest memory.

    • colleen

      Our favorite memory of Easter is telling the Easter story with the Resurrection eggs! Our children look forward to it every year and would love to share it with their Sunday school classes.

    • Kristin

      When I got to help a friend of mine teach some children the Easter story using the Resurrection Eggs. The kids loved them!

    • Majesq82

      What a great idea to teach about Easter, thank you SS!

    • sue

      Going to church so early in the morning followed by an Easter brunch at church.

    • Tcherry

      My favorite was the first time my Church family had a special time on Good Friday for families to meditate and pray over the different aspects of Christ's life, death and resurrection; and worship Him for being our substitute on the cross. The final room of that time consisted of the elements of the Lord's Supper (Communion) and prayer. My husband and I (fairly newly weds at that time) had such a precious time together as we gloried in Christ Jesus and worshiped Him in those moments hand in hand. Our prayer continues…that every year at this time and ever day within each year He draws our hearts after Him and He be made known through these lives He's given to us. Oh, Jesus is so sweet!

    • Karenlsummers

      bfast at G'ma after Sunrise services outside!

    • Becky

      My favorite memory is of an Easter dress! We couldn't afford Easter outfits when I was little, but when I was dating my Husband he bought me the dress, shoes, and matching purse. He had always seen his Grandad take his Grandmother out and do the same and he wanted to do the same for me.

    • Nfflowergirl

      My son sat on his own Easter 2009 reaching for an egg :)

    • Phyllis

      My favorite was going shopping to pick out Easter clothes, participating in Easter plays-one of the easiest ways, I feel, children and adults can learn about the importance of the Resurrection of Christ-, after-church egg hunts and Easter dinner, wooh weeh, that food Momma cooked was goood! Now, at your site I found another easy way to tell about what Christ has done (Resurrection eggs). I am a foster parent and this will be an easy way for my kids to understand it. Thanks.

    • JoNell

      My favorite Easter memory is Easter Egg hunting at my grandma's house. Each child had to find the egg with his or her name on it (written in crayon.) One year, an egg got stuck in my older cousins exhaust pipe on his car! What a fun time we had!

    • Mama of 2

      I remember getting up really early as a little girl for the sunrise service – Easter is my favorite day of the whole year

    • Nicole

      My favorite memory of Easter is hunting for Easter eggs. I enjoyed it so much that now, the adults get to hunt Easter eggs, too! We let the kids hide them!

    • sm

      Actually I have 2 favorires!!
      1 – is our very 1st Easter as a family. Which was Easter 1996. that was our 1st Easter married celebrating it with our 1st child.
      2 – our 3rd Easter 1998 which we had a new edition to our family. We celebated this Easter as family of 4.

    • Lauren_c_g

      My favorite Easter memory is when I was a kid and threw a fit because I felt that my younger sister was coloring more eggs than me, and not up to my specifications anyway. How funny to look back at what made me so upset!

    • Amber R

      This would be such a great tradition to start with my two children–2-year old and 7-month-old. WOW!! I love Easter Sunday–sunrise service. It's always a great way to start such a wonderful celebration

    • Sdhirtz

      I remember my sunday school teacher using the eggs to teach us. As a kid i remember the bunny, but i also remember dressing up for Jesus.

    • Kliver5150

      My fav memory of Easter is the first time I realized that Easter was not just about bunnies and candy..but the Risen savior!

    • Kidsramazing

      Playing in the creek at my grandparents with my cousins after hiding easter eggs!!

    • jstricklen

      My favorite Easter memory was going to a sun rise service on top of a mountain. It was cool & brisk & I remember shivering in my spring Easter dress & thinking, “This is what Mary must have felt like that morning when she discovered the tomb was empty.” It was almost like I was there hearing the angel say, “Don't be dismayed. Jesus isn't here. He is risen!”

    • Rcpreach

      I loved our sunrise service and the breakfast we would cook for the church afterward when I was back in high school.

    • RB

      I loved hunting Easter Eggs with my cousins at my granparents' farm.

    • mwilkie

      Watching my child hunt Easter eggs (he is only 3)

    • When I was a child, I got up early on Easter morning and went outside to see whether the Easter Bunny had visited our house. He had! I found a small bright blue egg and picked it up. However, when I tried to open it, I ended up with yolk all over my little fingers. I didn't understand about robin eggs, but I did know what an Easter basket should contain. Every Easter since has been much more fun.

    • khinson

      I have never hear of the Resurrection Eggs before. This would be a great teaching tool for my 2 children.

    • Scrapgirl6

      My favorite easter memory's were coming downstairs to find the Easter basket. As a child, almost as exciting as Christmas.

    • Dpotts_2009

      I have never heard of these look so cute. My favorite memory is one Easter we all got up to find our baskets one by one when we each found ours the heads of the rabbits had been ate our dog had found them first.

    • debbie

      We have had one of these for years and still love using it Every Easter even though my kids are 12 and 15 now! We have used it in sunday school as well.

    • Going to the sunrise service growing up. It was such a peaceful time before the busy day!

    • B_atkins

      Growing up in a family with nine children and my father passing away when I was thirteen, I'm sad to say that as a small child I do not remember getting an Easter basket or toy. When I was thirteen I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Every Easter I would promise myself that if I grew up to have a family, we would always celebrate Easter. Today I enjoy Easter with my husband, children, granddaughter and mother-in-law. Your web site is the first I have heard about the Resurrection Eggs. What a wonderful way to tell the Easter story to children or adults. Happy Easter!

    • Danielle

      I have never heard of the Resurrection Eggs. This would be a great tradition to start doing with my girls. My favorite memory of Easter is our family always being together. Besides Christmas, Easter is just as big in our family.

    • Wvhornsby

      Easter Service, Easter dresses and new shoes, egg hunts and good food. I also put, the making of my son's Easter baskets up high on my list. I loved to see what I could make his basket from and his enjoyment. One year I made a hot air balloon basket. Of course it was small and stayed inside but he had to figure out how to get it from the ceiling. I love the Easter story and would love to share the Ressurection Eggs with my grandson.

    • Erica Shouse

      Getting up super early for the sunrise service, then dressing in my brand new Easter dress and after church we always had tons of food with my whole family. Would love to start this tradition… it's important to me that my children always know the real reason for Easter :-) and this would be a fun activity!
