The Story Egg Review – Teach Kids About the Easter Story!

My family and I are Christian, so holidays like Easter take on special meaning for us as we consider the role Jesus played on Resurrection Sunday. So I was very excited to get the chance to try out The Story Egg, a book and activity that helps teach kids about Easter!

The Story Egg takes kids through each day of Holy Week, starting on Palm Sunday and leading up to Easter Sunday. The activity uses seven stacked, hand-crafted wooden nesting Eggs, each with its own corresponding story in an illustrated hardcover book. You can open an egg each day with your children or read the whole thing at once!

The Eggs cover the following days of Holy Week:

  • Palm Sunday
  • House of Prayer Monday
  • Teacher of Love Tuesday
  • Give and Take Wednesday
  • Last Supper Thursday
  • Good Friday
  • Holy Saturday
  • Easter Sunday

Note that there is no corresponding egg for Easter Sunday – that’s because when you open the seventh egg (representing the stone that was rolled in front of the tomb), it’s empty!

We started with our daily readings last night at dinner and my kids (ages 8, 6, 4, and 3) were really interested. I can tell this is going to be a family tradition for years to come!

I know it’s only February, but Easter is just around the corner! As you prepare for Easter or just spring in general, know that you don’t have to bust your budget shopping for basket fillers, decorations, treats, and/or party supplies.

DollarTree.com has a wide variety of $1 specials to make your Easter absolutely delightful. There are several bonuses to buying online at DollarTree.com vs. shopping in the store:

Here are some of their Easter basket fillers and supplies that are catching my eye:

Plastic Solar-Powered Dancing Chicks in Easter Baskets, 4 in. – $1.00 (minimum 4 units)

Hatch some fun this spring with these playful yellow chicks! When the solar strip is exposed to light these adorable little chicks’ bodies and heads will teeter back and forth. A great addition to Easter baskets and a fun accessory for any desk, table, or counter.

All-Star Sports Mini Foam Footballs – $1.00 (minimum 4 units)

Soft foam footballs look like a traditional football, but are smaller, softer, more safe, and promote healthy activities for kids! Practice kicking, throwing, and team cooperation. Make great party favors and additions to tailgating parties, too. Ages 4+.

Voila Iridescent Pearl Plastic Decorative Filler Shreds, 1.25-oz. Bags – $1.00 (minimum 4 units)

Foil shreds are the perfect start to gift baskets and as filler for gift bags and packages! Strips of shiny iridescent pearl-colored tinsel also bring a festive touch to centerpieces, wreaths, and mantle décor during the holidays. The possibilities are almost endless.

DollarTree.com also has some interesting Easter craft project ideas, like this Peeps Wreath or these Easter Egg Topiaries. What Easter basket fillers and supplies do you stock up on at Dollar Tree?
