We did an Easter egg color matching activity, and while my son was sticking play-doh into the plastic eggs, I suddenly had an idea. I thought, “these eggs really hold play-doh well, and they would be a great thing to have hidden in the eggs.” I wanted to make the play-doh within the egg more meaningful and tie into the Easter theme, and I began to think about how we want to be like God’s play-doh. We want Him to mold us and shape us to be more like Jesus. God can do this as we begin to grasp the resurrection power. That’s what Easter is all about. Jesus conquered sin for us. So, “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” – Romans 5:8. He took away our sin. Through that knowledge and appreciation for all He did, we begin to be transformed to become more Christ-like in our love and actions. We let him mold and shape us as we submit to His will for our lives – a way better and bigger plan than we could imagine. These play-doh plastic Easter egg fillers celebrate those truths. This idea comes with a free printable so you can re-create it for your own kids.
