Create a path of faith discovery for kids and their families
with a life-changing Easter Walk. Here's a station to use on Easter
Theme: Easter Morning
Materials: A table set for breakfast, a wooden
cross wrapped with chicken wire, a bucket of long-stemmed fresh
flowers, a candle or glow stick for each person, a Bible, a CD with
soft praise music, and a CD player
The Scene: This station should be in a bright,
well-lit room. Place the cross and fresh flowers away from the
breakfast table. Place candles or glow sticks near the exit door.
Play music in the background.
Experience: Have the host enthusiastically
greet families as they enter the station. Greetings such as "Good
morning! It's a brand-new day!" and "Happy Easter!" will help set
Gather families around the breakfast table and
say: What a great day for you to join us! Don't
you just love mornings? Everything is new again! And on Easter
morning we're reminded that God makes all things new. Jesus beat
death on Easter-he was raised from the dead to forgive our sins and
give us a new life.
Read aloud John 3:16-21. Ask: What does it mean
that Jesus gives us new life? How do you feel when you get
something new? How are those feelings similar to the way you feel
if Jesus has given you new life?
Have families move to the cross. Tell them that the cross is a
reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made for us and of the new life we
can have because of Easter. Have each family member place a flower
in the chicken wire to create a beautiful floral cross.
Gather families for a closing near the exit. Read aloud Matthew
5:14-16. Say: We learned earlier today that Jesus
is the light of the world-that's great news to share. Jesus doesn't
want us to hide his light from others-he asks us to share it with
others. As you leave today, take this light as a reminder to let
your light shine for Jesus.
Give family members each a candle or glow stick as they
