True Meaning of Easter Poem (Easter Symbols)

Years ago, I wrote a "True Meaning of Easter Poem" for a lesson I taught at church, to the Primary children, about Easter. I taught about Easter symbols and shared a True Meaning of Easter poem.

Here's What I Used:

- 12 plastic eggs from a True Meaning of Easter Egg Hunt
- 3 extra plastic eggs
- a candy bunny, egg, and chick for each child
- a pkg. of small ziplock bags
- cardstock

Here's What I Did:

I hid the eggs around the Primary room before the kids got there (including 3 extras, each with a candy egg, chick, or bunny in it)

When it was time for the lesson, we took turns finding eggs. We would open each egg and talk about what the item inside had to do with Easter. When someone found one of the candies, we would talk about how that item represented new life and that is how it relates to the true meaning of Easter.

Easter Poem for Kids

At the end of the lesson time, each child got a little bag with one of each of the 3 candies inside as well as a copy of this poem about the true meaning of Easter:

Poem about Meaning of Easter and Spring Symbols

Ken and I wrote that little Easter poem for children together at 11:30, the night before church! Thankfully, it still made sense to us in the morning ;) haha If you're interested in using the poem, you can save a copy for yourself by left-clicking on the image above (to see it full-sized) and then right-clicking on it and choosing "save image as", to save it to your computer.
