Here’s an interactive story to use at a toddler group Easter celebration or for families to use at home. It involves a hen laying eggs, a bird building a nest, a rabbit and a caterpillar who turns into a butterfly.
The account of the caterpillar provides a simple metaphor for the Easter story. You might like to invite your church minister to explain briefly to the adults how this metamorphosis mirrors the death and resurrection of Jesus.
The story leads well into an Easter egg hunt!
