Let me show you how with this Christian Easter egg hunt alternative that doubles as a Resurrection lesson for kids about the true story of Easter. Your kids will love it (mine do)!
How Does this Christian Easter Egg Hunt Teach Kids About Easter?
Bring spiritual meaning to a traditional Easter egg hunt as kids discover “God’s Easter Gifts” hidden in the eggs.
How does this Christian Easter egg hunt alternative work?
It’s easy: Just use these “God’s Easter Gifts” cards from the Christ Centered Easter Family Resources.
Insert the one of the 12 (1 x 1 inch) God’s Easter Gifts Christian Easter Egg Hunt Cards into some of the Easter eggs. Each card contains one of 12 Easter gifts that God gives us because of Jesus’ Resurrection:
- new creation
Then send kids on a fun Easter egg hunt (our family still includes other eggs with candy too).
Once kids have found the eggs, open them and have an informal discussion about what some of these gifts are. The God’s Easter Gifts Christian Easter Egg Hunt Cards include a script with Bible verses and discussion starters for each of the 12 Easter gifts so that it’s easy to teach kids!
This Christian Easter egg scavenger hunt is also a great evangelistic tool for kids from other families who may not have heard about the hope of Christ.
