Resurrection Eggs

Each year I've had to look at other sites to put together the Resurrection Eggs for our Week of Easter. So I decided this year to go ahead and create my own post with the Resurrection Eggs we will be using. Some sites I used to create our eggs is Celebrating Easter: Resurrection Eggs, Rainbow Castle Resurrection Eggs, Resurrection Eggs, Creative Bible Study: Resurrection eggs,

Each of our eggs is a different color. I save these from year to year just replacing a few small things that won't save well. So, I've also included which color the egg is.
