Form a circle with the little ones in your nursery and tell about how people put Jesus in a dark cave where they thought he’d stay.

To represent this, place a small figure such as a LEGO toy person in a cup. Tilt the cup sideways so children can see inside it easily. Then tell children to cover their eyes with their hands or blanket, and remove the figure from the cup.

Say, “Peek-a-boo!” and have children open their eyes to see the empty cup.

Reveal the figure and say, “Jesus is alive!”

Play several rounds to help little ones know that Jesus is alive this Easter.
