Happy Easter! To make Easter Sunday extra fun for your family, try playing a few of the games listed below, or all of them! You can also download a Pictionary Review Game from today’s lesson as well as a few coloring sheets for your kids. All the activities can be done with simple household items. Have fun!

Memory Verse Scavenger Hunt: 
This activity can be done with any Bible verse. Here are two suggestions for this week: 

  • Mark 16:16 - “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

  • Matthew 28:5-6: “The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.”


  1. Write a verse out in sections on strips of paper. Crumble the strips of paper up into little balls or fold into an easter egg. Then hide either the small balls of paper or easter eggs around your home. 

  2. If you have multiple children and would like to make this activity a race, use colored paper or easter eggs. Each child will need a specific color to hunt for. 

  3. Once your kids find all the pieces of the verse, work to put them in the correct order. Write the verse on a piece of paper or open your Bible to serve as a guide while putting the pieces in order.  

E.A.S.T.E.R. Basketball
Instead of playing the basketball game called  “H.O.R.S.E.”, play “E.A.S.T.E.R.” Basketball as a family!

  1. Begin by crushing pieces of paper into small balls. Make a few of these balls for convenience; they can be called “stones” for this game. If you have a real ball of any size, you could use that as well. 

  2. Then, grab a bucket or some sort of open container to be used as “the tomb”. 

  3. Set the “tomb” in one position in your home. You will need at least six positions from which your family can throw the “stone” into the “tomb”. 

  4. To play E.A.S.T.E.R, the first player shoots the “stone” from anywhere in the room. If they make the shot into the “tomb”, the second player must attempt the same shot. If the first player misses, the second player can shoot from anywhere. Continue this pattern for the duration of the game.

  5. When a player makes their first basket, he/she earns an E. If they make a second basket, they get the A. Continue the game until the first player spells E.A.S.T.E.R.

  6. You can also play this game by spelling “J.E.S.U.S.” or “A.L.I.V.E.”.

The Easter Story Scavenger Hunt:
Have your kids go on a scavenger hunt to find the following items and bring them back to you: something yellow, something black, two small sticks (or something that could make a cross shape), a flashlight (or candle), a rock, and something that makes noise.

Once your family has collected the items, place all of the collected items in front of your family. As you read each of the following, have your family find the object(s) that matches what you are discussing.

    • This is the color of the sun. (Something yellow) Yellow makes me think of the golden streets in heaven. God loves you so much and He wants all of us to be with Him in heaven one day.

    • Now find something that is the color of the night sky. (Something black) This looks dark and reminds us of sin, or the wrong things we do, like telling lies or being mean to our friends. Each of us has sin in our hearts and that sin breaks our friendship with God. But God had the best plan ever to fix our friendship with Him!

    • Can you find the two sticks and put them in the shape of a cross? God sent His Son, Jesus, to die on a cross and take the punishment for all wrong things, or sin, that we do.

    • Now find something that helps us see when it’s dark. (Flashlight or candle - Turn the lights down and turn on the flashlight or light the candle) After Jesus died on the cross, the Bible tells us that the sky was dark from twelve o’clock noon to three o’clock in the afternoon.

    • After Jesus died, they put His body in a tomb and closed it shut with a big rock. (Allow kids to find the rock) After He had been in the tomb for three days, Jesus came back to life! (If your lights are still down, turn them back on)

    • Let’s celebrate because it was the best day ever — Jesus was alive! (Create noise with whatever you collected that makes noise)
