Resurrection Eggs


I thought my 3 year old would like to do this this Easter, so rather than pay for some, I made my own using things I had around the house. (I did have to print the picture of the donkey, the praying hands, and the sword, and I used mailing tape as "lamination"). Different sources tell you to use different things, so I compiled my favorites and made my own.
