Easter is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It's a time for my to reflect on my relationship with God and rejoice in thankfulness that God was willing to kill His son on a cross to allow a sinner like me a path to spend eternity with Him and lastly, it's a time to bask in the glory of God as He displayed His power through Christ's resurrection. Not only is this a time to rejoice in the work that God did on the cross, but it's also a time of fellowship and love among family and friends. From sunrise services, to packed out sanctuaries, our churches are full of people who have come with love to celebrate Christ. After church, there's always the long awaited Easter dinner and a whole day set aside to spend with grandparents and other family. Oh, and you can't forget Easter egg hunts.
This year I wanted to do something special for my 6th grade girls small group. I unfortunately thought of doing something very last minute and had to think on my feet for this project. Lucky for me, it turned out great and my little friends loved their Easter gift!

S T E P S
1. First, cut out small rectangles of scrapbook paper for name tags and begin writing each name on the tags.
2. Hole punch the top corner of the name tags and tie a small piece of twine through it.
3. Tape the twine to the outside of the Easter egg with your washi tape.
4. Fill the eggs with chocolate egg candy.
5. Write a small, handwritten note and fold it up to put inside the egg.
Now that your egg is full of chocolate and lovely notes, you can package them up in a basket or bag and deliver them to friends and family. I think little gestures like this make a huge difference during a holiday!
