Easter tradition

We really wanted to emphasize how important and meaningful Easter is to our family this year.  We had a couple of Family Home Evenings about it, but this one was great!  A new tradition for sure.  I got the ideas from How Does She?.  It worked great for all ages and gave us lots to talk about.  How Does She does this as a countdown to Easter, but we did it all in one family night.  Just open the eggs in numerical order, ask what the object inside has to do with Easter, read the scripture that goes with it and talk about it. 
For example, here is the first one:
1. And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying,
“O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me:
Nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” Mathew 26:39 (Sacrament cup)
Follow the link for the rest of the eggs.  Happy Easter!!
