The 12 Days of Easter

The 12 Days of Easter

Materials
12 Plastic Easter Eggs
Permanent Marker
12 Small Strips of Paper (12 more optional)
(Small items listed below)

What to do
1. With your permanent marker, write the numbers 1-12 on each of the plastic eggs. 

2. Prepare your strips of paper.
*12 of the strips will have scripture references on them, listed below.
*The other 12 will have a very short explanation of the scripture. You don’t have to include this, but I am putting them in for our 6 year old who is all about reading right now.

3. Round up your small items (listed in parentheses). Refer to the list below.
