You may not be able to host your annual Easter Egg Hunt this year, but you can still equip your families to focus on Jesus and create fun memories this Easter! This download includes everything you need to prepare and distribute an At-Home Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Bag to each of the families in your ministry.
The activities in the bag will take families 30-45 minutes to complete and includes an Easter family devotion (John 8:12 & Matthew 5:14-16), games, and a special glow in the dark egg hunt kids will love! And don’t worry – we’ve made it as easy as possible for parents with a 6-page Family Guide that will walk them through the whole thing step-by-step.
Here’s how it works:
- Determine how many bags you’ll make (1 per child or 1 per family) and order necessary supplies (links to supplies included in download). *Download does not include materials. It does include links to purchase supplies online, and most can be found locally. See details about supplies needed below.
- Print & assemble the 6-page Family Guide (included)
- Pack your At-Home Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Bags and communicate with families when/where they can pick up their bags. Use the email template provided and the social media graphics included to help spread the word.
- Distribute the bags however you decide (families pick them up at church, you leave them on a family’s doorstep, etc.).
- Enjoy Easter with your family and watch for the pictures/reactions from your church families!
