Directions for the Christ Centered Easter Egg Hunt

You can hide these around the house for the kids to find all 12, or you can just hand them to the kids one at a time.

Put the scripture and token in each egg.  As you open the eggs, you will read the verse and talk about that part of the last week of the Savior’s mortal life.

Keep the set together for next year!  It can be used again and again.  Have fun!
