This fun Easter egg hunt puts the center of the holiday activity on the Savior Jesus Christ. This Easter egg hunt activity is perfect for family night during the Holy Week or for an Easter Sunday activity after church. You could even use it as an Easter Sunday School lesson for kids! Keep your Easter focused on Jesus and His Resurrection with this Christ-centered Easter egg hunt.
Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
This Easter egg hunt was given to us as a gift from someone in our ward (church congregation) to use for Easter during the COVID-19 quarantine. It was a hit with our kids, and I wanted to share it with y’all.
What you need
This Easter egg hunt is not based on candy, but rather symbols of the Savior’s death and Resurrection. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 12 plastic Easter eggs numbered 1-12. Egg #6 will need to be bigger.
- 12 New Tesatment scriptures cut into strips (use the free printable below)
- 12 tokens to go in each egg with the corresponding scriptures
- 1: 3 dimes
- 2: sacrament cup (or a small piece of bread if you don’t have access to a cup)
- 3: knotted twine
- 4: piece of soap
- 5: scrap of red fabric
- 6: toothpick cross, nail
- 7: small dice
- 8: tiny bag of crushed rocks
- 9: strips of white cloth
- 10: stone
- 11: spices tied in a small cloth\
- 12: empty egg (no token)
Make sure you number your eggs with a Sharpie so you can read the verses in the correct order!
Here is a printable with each of the scripture verses. Just print it out, cut the strips, and roll each scripture up to fit inside the egg along with the token. Download it as a PDF here or click on the image below.
It’s that easy!
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!
