What's Included
Who doesn't enjoy waking up on Easter morning to find a basket filled with our favorite candies? This series uses some of those candies to show kids that the greatest joy that we can experience in this life is knowing Jesus as King, Son of God, Savior, and Lord.

"Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6 (NIRV)


Jelly Beans
Scripture: Mark 11:1-10, Jesus Rides into Jerusalem
Jelly Beans are a celebration of color. When Jesus rode into Jerusalem, the people celebrated the arrival of the King. Our lives become a celebration when we make Jesus our King and Savior.
Objective: Kids will say, “Jesus is King; I will celebrate Him.”

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs
Scripture: Matthew 21:12-16, Jesus at the Temple
Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs have peanut butter and chocolate – two tastes that go great together. When Jesus went to the temple, the people saw two sides of Jesus: his passion for God's temple and his compassion for people. Both sides reveal the truth that Jesus is God's Son.
Objective: Kids will say, “Jesus is the Son of God; I will love like Him.”

Scripture: Luke 23:32-43, The Crucifixion
Peeps are an Easter treat and also a slang term for the people closest to us. Jesus was hung on a cross close to two thieves. One of the thieves recognized that Jesus was the one who saves us, and wanted to become one of his "peeps." Jesus came to be our Savior and died for our sins.
Objective: Kids will say, “Jesus is Savior; I will live for Him.”

Chocolate Bunny
Scripture: John 20:1-18, The Empty Tomb
When you bite into a Chocolate Easter Bunny, you discover an empty shell. When Mary Magdalene went to the tomb, she found that it was empty. Jesus rose from the grave in power; he is our Lord.
Objective: Kids will say, “Jesus is Lord; I will worship Him.”
