For several years, I have suggested the Resurrection Eggs for Easter. I believe the lead up to the empty egg on Easter morning is simple enough for even young children to understand.
Crystal Bowman has written a book to explain the Resurrection Eggs. Lily's Easter Party: The Story of the Resurrection Eggs is a story about an Easter egg hunt between Lily and her friends. Upon opening each of the eggs, the symbolism of the item instead each egg is explained.
At 37 pages, this is a long picture book. While one-third of it sets up the hunt, the rest explains each symbol found in the eggs. While my elementary aged children enjoyed it, I would have to break it up for my preschooler.
I believe that this book could be used with your own Resurrection Eggs set. It would be especially helpful if you are unsure of how to explain each symbol.

How do you explain the significance of Easter to your child(ren)?
Thank you to Zonderkidz for allowing me to review this book.
