Easter eggs with a gospel message

I've been searching for ideas on how to make Easter fun while keeping the focus on Christ. Here's one of the ideas I found. I made mine today and was really excited to share it! I plan on using it for FHE on Monday or on Easter morning.
Each egg has a scripture and an item to represent the scripture. You open the eggs in order. Here's the list of scriptures and items:

Egg #1- Matthew 26:39 - Sacrament cup

Egg #2- Matthew 26:14,15 and Zechariah 11:12-14 - 3 dimes

Egg #3- Matthew 27:1,2 - Knotted twine

Egg #4- Matthew 27: 24-26 - Piece of soap

Egg #5- Matthew 27: 28-30 - Red velvet

Egg #6- Matthew 27: 31,32 - Small nail

Egg #7- Matthew 27: 35-56 - Pair of dice

Egg #8- Matthew 27: 50-54 - Small rocks

Egg #9- Matthew 27: 58-60 - White cloth

Egg #10- Matthew 27: 60,65,66 - Large stone

Egg #11- Mark 16:1 and Matthew 28:2,5 - Bay leaves

Egg #12- Matthew 28:6 - This egg is empty to represent the empty tomb

This is so awesome... I haven't checked this site in a while. I will have to print this out and use it next Easter. Thanks Jen!
