What does Easter sound like? This candy-packed Easter game
is a great way for your children's ministry students to make a
joyful noise just in time for Easter.
In this children's game your kids will participate in a
fun activity perfect for Easter or anytime.
To start the activity, create an instrument for each
child. Fill several plastic easter eggs with one tablespoon of
uncooked popcorn. Fill some with one tablespoon of salt. Fill
others with a LifeSavers candy. Close these Easter eggs and put
duct tape over the seams to ensure a tight seal. Now you are ready
for the activity to begin!
Have kids sit in a circle to start the game, with their
Easter eggs hidden behind their backs . Choose one child to stand
and "play" his or her egg, then that child will walk around the
outside of the circle and gently tap another child on the head. The
tapped child should play his or her egg and compare the sound to
the tapper's egg. If the sounds don't match, the tapper continues
to walk around until he or she finds an egg that sounds
"egg-sactly" like his or her own. Before the next child begins
searching for a matching egg in the game, have kids pass their eggs
to the child on their right.
Finish the game by playing the instruments along with a
rousing praise chorus. It's a fun activity for younger children,
