Teacher: "That is not dye, that it is His blood that He shed for us because He loves us so.
(Begin to read the real Easter story, when in comes the Easter
Easter Bunny: (Hops in with a basket filled with plastic
eggs.) "I am sorry to intrude here, but I could not help but over hear your conversation
and I wonder if you would let me tell these children the real Easter
Story? I would never want them to think it's all about me!"
Teacher: "Yes, please do."
Easter Bunny: Boys and girls, the Bible tells us that
everyone sins. That means we do wrong things. The Bible also tells us that our sins must be
punished, and because we sin, we
cannot go to Heaven and be with God unless our sins are washed
you know that God loves us so much that he sent his only Son to come
and take on our punishment? The punishment that we deserved, Jesus
took for you and me when he was crucified on the cross! He washed our
sins away! Isn't this
great news, boys and girls? But the really Good News is that Jesus
didn't remain on the cross! He is not still dead! He rose from the
dead three days later so that we can live in Heaven forever and ever
with God! The day Jesus rose from the dead is the day we call Easter,
and this is why we celebrate it, boys and girls!
Do you now understand why we celebrate Easter?
Older Child #1 and #2: "Yes!"
Easter Bunny: "I'm glad you finally know the truth."
(Begins to leave...)
Teacher: "Thank you for telling us the real story
of Easter! Bye!"
Easter Bunny: "Always remember that I was not the one who was crucified for you, it was
Jesus. But, before I go, I would like to give each of you a little gift that will always help you remember what I have told you today."
(Hands out plastic eggs from the basket and gives one to each child.
Inside each egg is a little cross.)

P.S. "The skit went GREAT last night! I thank God for the impact it had. The children now understand more, for sure, the real
meaning of Easter! They really loved the bunny too! He did not practice it with us for the reason that we felt he would have more impact
and when he entered, the children's faces were hysterical! Thanks for allowing me to share this with you! I pray it will help someone else
to understand the TRUE meaning of Easter." Diana Brown

To make the crosses for the plastic eggs: We used sticks from
outside to make our crosses and held them together with jute and hot glue at the crossing point. I also added some 1/2 inch purple ribbon as the scarlet garment on the cross
and added a crown of thorns made from covering a small piece of floral wire with brown floral tape & glued it to the little crosses.
