FHE Idea -Easter

8th Ward Primary
This is a fun  idea the 8th Ward Primary did a few years ago that our family still enjoys. Maybe your family will too. Small visual aides along with scriptures are used to help tell the story of Easter.

You will need:

  •  1 egg carton

  • 12 plastic Easter eggs (the size that fits in the egg carton)

  • the small visuals listed below
Make a copy of the scripture references and items below on a small piece of paper and insert the paper and the small visual in each of the numbered plastic Easter eggs. For FHE take turns reading the Easter story starting with egg #1 and finishing with egg #12. The visual aides will make it fun and memorable.

  1.  Matthew 26:39 (sacrament cup)

  2. Matthew 26:14-15, thus fulfilled the prophecy in Zechariah 11:12-14 (3 dimes)

  3. Matthew 27:1-2 (knotted twine)

  4. Matthew 27:24-26 (small chunk of hand soap)

  5. Matthew 27:28-30 (square of red cloth and a thorn)

  6. Matthew 27L31-32, and he was crucified and nailed to a cross (tooth pick cross & tiny nail)

  7. Matthew 27:35-36 (small pair of dice)

  8. Matthew27:46, 48 (sponge)

  9. Matthew 27:57-60 (strip of white cloth)

  10. Matthew 27:60-66 (stone)

  11. Mark 16:1, Matthew 28:2, 5 (cloves, or a bay leaf)

  12. Matthew 28:6 (empty)
