Life of Jesus Cross and Resurrection Eggs Sensory Bin

Today we did a couple of activities to help us prepare for the celebration of Christ's resurrection. We made a cross with pictures of events from Jesus' life. You can find the printable pictures and cross here.
This year we decided to take the contents of the resurrection eggs and do something different with them. We put them all in the plastic container that we use as our sensory bin. I added some dried black beans so that we could kind of dig for each item.  
We used The Story of the Resurrection Eggs: Benjamin's Box, Amazing Grace: Lord Jesus Lives, The First Easter, and The Story of Easter: Read and Share to help us identify each item and to help Seth see how the item related to the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection. These last few nights of learning have been incredible. I have been amazed at Seth's attention span and how much he can remember. It's so sweet to see him beginning to understand.
