The Sparkle Egg Giveaway

The Sparkle Egg

 Hosted by Pea of Sweetness

Sponsored by Ideals Books

Co-Hosted by Deals of Sweetness



Easter is coming, and Sam loves Easter! But this year, he is upset about a lie he told his parents. Even though he apologized and they forgave him, Sam can't shake the feeling that he is a bad kid for what he did. Meanwhile, his parents help him make a special Easter craft called a Sparkle Egg. His mom tells him to write anything he feels sorry about or ashamed of on a piece of paper and put it inside his Sparkle Egg.

On Easter morning, when he opens his Sparkle Egg expecting a surprise, Sam finds that it is empty! His parents explain that because Jesus died and rose again, we are forgiven. Like the tomb that first Easter Day, Sam’s egg is empty—and Sam’s wrongdoing is completely forgiven. Once he accepts this forgiveness fully, Sam realizes a truth: we can sparkle and shine with God’s light when we
let God’s gift of grace into our hearts. This touching story will strike a deep chord with readers of all ages, and the Sparkle Egg tradition will help readers and their families grasp the totality of God’s perfect grace.

Emilee at Pea of Sweetness loves resources that help children focus on the true reason we celebrate Easter. See what her family thought in their review of The Sparkle Egg.

Easter Sunday memories: Always a new dress for my sister and me. The Resurrection story at church. Easter dinners with family and then endless egg hunts in the yard...sometimes for a few days afterwards! Do you have Easter traditions you keep with your children?
