I reeallllly liked this book... just cannot use it any longer. Perhaps this won't be a problem for anybody else.. but it was for us.
If you want an awesome resource to go along with the eggs, you need this book (Benjamin's Box). The story is great and matches the eggs perfectly. It is nicely illustrated and each page tells a story to match the item in the egg. The kids seem to enjoy the story and hearing it from the point of view of a little boy. I highly recommend getting this book to compliment the eggs. My kids ages 5 and 8 really enjoy this book. I am also sharing it with my third grade CCD class and they love it too.
I hid the eggs around my house and told my kids to find them but not open them. Once we had all 12 eggs we took turns reading a page from the book and opening the egg that went along with the page.
I used Benjamin's Box to help me create a printable to match the Resurrection Eggs activity. If you search Teaching Heart Mom on Google and then go to Easter you will see it. You can download it free here. It is five pages. The last page (foldable eggs) you will need to print three times on colored card stock. All other pages get printed once on regular paper. My kids enjoyed making the books and we will refer to them through the season.
