Here’s a simple and fun Easter egg hunt activity that involves all ages. You can use this at home, at church, or any other Easter event.
- Using plastic Easter eggs, have the adults hide the eggs for the children – the more people you get involved the better, as you’ll see why in the next steps….
- Do NOT fill the eggs with candy. Instead, have each adult take one or more eggs and fill each one with a slip of paper with a Bible verse on it. Ideally, the Bible verses can be about the resurrection of Jesus (here is a link to a starter list of 15 verses you can use). It is best if each adult takes the time to look up and write out each verse by hand.
- Set the children loose to find the eggs.
- After all the eggs are found, have people forms intergenerational groups of 5-8 people each.
- Have the children read the verses out loud to the adults in the group and give time for the groups to discuss the verses together.
- Allow time for the group to pray together as well.
- Finally, have plenty of candy available for the children at the end, so they can still fill their baskets and bellies with the sweets!
