Easter is such a special time in the religious community. I teach in a Christian school so I have to combine the fun aspect of Easter along with the religious reason behind Easter. With this Easter Glow In the Dark Easter Egg Kit, I get to combine both in a fun way.
In the kit you will receive the following:
1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure storybook
1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure narrated book on DVD (25 mins)
In the book it tells of three friends that go on an adventure to find the meaning of Easter. They find a glowing egg in the attic which takes them on this grand adventure. The book has a lot of reading so it for advance readers or you will need to read to your child. I teach 3 year olds and it was a little long for them. I ended up paraphrasing the book. The subject of the book was given to the children. I love that it tells the story of Easter in a different way. It takes you through different Bible stories to get to the Easter message.
The DVD is much better for smaller children. It tells the story from the book on the DVD. It is narrated, cartoon. I think if the children had talked in the story it would have kept their attention. My students watched it and did ask some questions so I know they were paying attention. One of them asked why the kids were not talking. In the day of cartoons they are used to the characters talking. This by no means DVD is not good to use with the kids. I feel like my kids did understand the lesson they were learning.
12 x Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs
The glow in the dark eggs were a big hit. I turned the lights out in the class room to show them. The whole premise behind the kit is to show the children that Jesus is the light of the world. With the glow in the dark eggs this shows the meaning. You will get 12 eggs, 6 have the cross and 6 are plain. They do open so you could place candy in the eggs if you wanted to do an Easter Egg hunt at night.
12 x Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls
12 x Bible Verse Scroll Stickers
The scrolls are like in the book and DVD that the children follow through the story.
The Bible Verse Scroll stickers are like in the story. They are not the exact words from the bible but they do get the point across of what the Bible is saying.
12x Easter Egg Stickers
12 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Character Stickers
The kids liked the stickers and it helped in retelling the story we talked about.
By the end of the lesson the kids knew that Jesus was the light of the world.
BONUS: Glow in the dark event program curriculum. A step by step guide to plan an event, including printable invitations, coloring pages, cut outs and more
The bonus CD is useful if you were having a party to help you plan it. It did have a color page I printed off for the kids to color.
I was very impressed with the kit. It was well put together and each part built on the other. It used the fact that kids love to watch cartoons to help tell the story of Easter. They did it in such a way as not to be scary for little children. There are parts of the Easter story that can be very scary for young children. This kit tells the story in a way small children will under stand. The book is a little advanced for the small child but an older child could enjoy using it and learn from it as well.
I am very pleased with the kit and glad I received it at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.
I hope you all have a happy Easter and enjoy time with your family as you talk about the reason for Easter.
