Truth: We can thank God for the sacrifice of
his Son and for the hope of the Resurrection

Before class, use a permanent marker to label seven
plastic Easter eggs with the numbers one through seven. Place the
following items in the eggs:

1. a small square of bread;

2. a grape;

3. a piece of purple cloth;

4. a thorn;

5. a piece of a leather shoelace;

6. a cross; and

7. a stone.

Hide the Easter eggs around the room. Tell kids that you’re going
to have an Easter egg prayer hunt. Let kids hunt until they’ve
found all seven eggs; then gather everyone in a circle, and have
kids take turns opening the eggs in order.

After each egg is opened, have kids combine their knowledge of the
Easter story to tell the significance of that item. Then have a
volunteer pray a prayer of thanks for that part of the Easter
story. For instance, a prayer for the bread might be, “Thank you,
Lord, that you are the bread of life. Thank you that you let your
body be broken for us.”

If your children are very young or not familiar with the Easter
story, tell about the items and offer thanks for them
