Easter Egg Hunt Ideas – How to teach children what Easter is all about
Are you looking for some Easter Egg hunt ideas that will help children understand what Easter is all about? Here are a few ideas that we wanted to share.
- Include a Scripture about Easter in each egg along with the candy. Make sure to have a number of different verses so the kids don’t get all the same verse. Just copy the verses onto a piece of copy paper and cut them down.
- Have a craft area where children make crafts that help them learn the Easter Story.
- Show a video about Easter. There are several excellent ones on YouTube. We included our favorite one below.
- Have a question and answer time. Questions such as what is Easter all about? Who was Jesus? Why did he come? Why did he die? Why do we celebrate Easter? etc. It will help children focus on the fact that Easter is more than candy, getting new clothes and coming to church all dressed up.
- Give the kids an Easter tract to take home.
- Craft ideas from Danielle’s Place. Lots of really creative ideas. Carolyn always comes up with some great ideas.
Here are some additional resources.
