The 12 Days of Easter
12 Plastic Easter Eggs
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.

Arrange each day in its assigned egg and decide how you want them displayed. You could simply place them in a basket and display them. You could only bring out one a day, or even have your kids go on a hunt to find them each day.
