Christ Centered Easter Activity

Every year we get swept away by the fun and excitement of the Easter holiday. The kids get thrilled about thoughts of candy and the Easter Bunnies visit. Sometimes amid all the anticipation, we forget what the holiday is really about. The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To help my kids remember Christ in Easter, I do this simple, yet fun, Christ centered Easter activity.

Keep Easter centered around Christ with this fun Easter activity for the whole family. Whether you have younger kids or older, they will all enjoy this activity for years to come.

Each egg has a little token in it that coincides with the scripture that goes with it. As you open each egg, the scripture in it will explain it’s meaning and how it pertains to the events leading up to Christ’s death and resurrection. The 12 eggs take you through the whole account. So you can teach about the meaning of Easter in a fun and interactive way.

What you will need:

  • 12 Plastic Eggs
  • A Cup (sacrament cup works great)
  • 3 Quarters
  • A Little Piece of Rope
  • A Piece of Soap (Travel/ Hotel sized soap is easiest)
  • Red cloth cut into the shape of a robe/cape
  • Little cross (Make by gluing little sticks or toothpicks together)
  • 2 Dice
  • A Little Bag of Dirt
  • A White Cloth
  • Little Stone
  • Little Bag of Some Spice
  • Printed Strips of Each Numbered Scripture Below
  • Scriptures (New Testament)

Keep Easter centered around Christ with this fun Easter activity for the whole family. Whether you have younger kids or older, they will all enjoy this activity for years to come.

How to make:

  1. Find and prepare the materials above
  2. Write the numbers on the outside of the eggs so you know which order to open them in
  3. Print off the scriptures below and cut into strips
  4. Fill each numbered egg with it’s corresponding scripture and material

Keep Easter centered around Christ with this fun Easter activity for the whole family. Whether you have younger kids or older, they will all enjoy this activity for years to come.

You may choose to hide the eggs to make it more exciting, or just open and read as a quiet family activity. Make it a scripture chase or a family scripture study. These work great for Sunday school lessons too. They can be saved and used year after year.
