I saw these Resurrection Eggs on one of the blogs I read, and I thought they would be fun for Matthew. The blog said you could buy them at Wal-Mart, but I didn't find them there so I ordered them online.
I read the story to Matthew and Carter, and they opened each of the 12 eggs to see what was inside. The first egg has a donkey, and the last egg is empty. Each of the eggs in between contains a small trinket to symbolize an important element of the Easter story.They listened to the story, and then had fun putting them all back in the correct spot as they were able to see, touch, and hear about the promise of Easter.
