Excellent Easter Idea for your Grandkids

By grandparenting 4 years ago1 Comment

This week I would like to share an excellent Easter idea I found on iMOM.com. Children love to hunt for Easter eggs. In this egg-citing game your kids can hunt for eggs over and over again without ever being at risk for a cavity from too much candy. Instead of candy they will actually learn the Easter story.

  1. Before you begin make sure you print off both the Easter Story
    and the Easter Puzzle.
  2. Cut out the puzzle pieces by cutting along the dotted lines of
    the puzzle page.
  3. Place each puzzle piece in a plastic colored egg. You will need 15 eggs.
  4. Hide the 15 eggs.
  5. Let the children hunt for the eggs.
  6. When all 15 have been found have the children open their eggs
    and take out the puzzle pieces.
  7. Begin the story by asking who has the donkey. Place the donkey
    puzzle piece on a table so everyone can see it. Then read the passage that
    correlates to the donkey puzzle piece.
  8. Continue by asking for the next puzzle piece, the palm branch.
    Add that piece to the donkey and read the correlating passage. Continue through
    the story adding to the puzzle as you go until the puzzle is complete.

    I already did this with our 7 and 8 year olds. They really enjoyed the hunt indoors. Then with scotch tape we put the puzzle pieces on a backing. I made it interactive by asking what they knew about the clues (pictures). It opened the door to focusing on gospel / Easter. Then we did a card-making project. Thank you for the help.
