Easter Eggs.....

Tonight we dyed Easter eggs. What fun! All the kids, from the littles to the big, seemed to enjoy it.

We talked about the significance of dyeing eggs and Easter and then did a little research on the computer.

Did you know that the first Easter eggs were dyed red to signify Christ's blood flowing at the foot of the Cross?

Or that Easter eggs symbolize "new life" that we have in Christ?

It can also be the symbol of the Christ's tomb "cracking" open and Christ's resurrection!

Whatever the meaning of the eggs, we will celebrate the risen Lord on Easter!
