Here’s a fun way to invite families to incorporate the Resurrection story into their at-home Easter Egg Hunt! Kids will hunt for the empty egg (like the empty tomb), and complete actions along the way!
Families will need: 12 empty plastic eggs, Action Eggs Family Activity Guide Printable (included in this download)
Here’s how it works: Email the Action Eggs Family Activity Guide PDF to your families (parent email template provided to get you started). They will print and cut the action slips, putting one action slip into each plastic egg (leaving one empty) and hide them around the house like a normal egg hunt. Families will read the Resurrection story together, then hunt for their eggs. They complete the actions found inside the eggs as they go along. The person who finds the empty egg shouts “Christ is risen!” and families have the option to award a special Easter treat or just name the empty-egg-finder as the winner.
