I love using Resurrection Eggs by FamilyLife Publishing! They are a great resource, and a fun way to tell the Biblical Easter story to kids. We have enjoyed using them every year, but this year I wanted to do something different. In addition to the ideas included in this wonderful resource, try out some of these activities!
Play a quiz game! My boys actually came up with this idea. Look up the Bible verses for each egg, but instead of opening the egg immediately, have kids guess what is in the egg.
After discovering the meaning of each egg, play charades to guess items such as the donkey, praying hands, crown of thorns, dice, etc.
Include some extension activities with some (or all) of the eggs! Here are some possibilities:
Egg #1 (donkey): Make a donkey craft! For active kids, hide the pieces for the craft (the ears, head, etc.) and have them find the pieces before putting the craft together. Another option: act out the donkey part of the story, using stuffed animals as props.
