Easter Egg Hunts are a great way to pull families from your community into the real meaning of Easter so check out these 5 ways to boost your Easter Egg Hunt.
At the time of my writing this, we have only about two weeks until Easter is here. For many of us, that means preparing for the annual Easter egg hunt. The hunt can be one of the greatest community outreach events for your ministry, so it’s important to give it to God. Make sure to pray over the event for guidance and impact. That’s the best tip I can give you.
If you are looking for ways to give your hunt an extra boost, we’ve found four cool ideas that you can implement for this year’s event.
Who said Easter egg hunts have to take place in the middle of the day? The night owls over at Egglo Entertainment have created these glow-in-the-dark eggs with crosses on them. The idea? Jesus is the light of this dark world-too cool! Pick up a few dozen eggs for use at night (or to use in a dark room if it rains on your hunt). Egglo also sells curriculum and other fun items to go with the eggs, so check them out!
Make these buns the night before your Easter egg hunt to serve as a delicious treat with a special meaning. Children will enjoy biting into these buns to find that they’re empty-just as Jesus’ tomb was empty on Easter morning. (Hollow chocolate eggs work well for this activity too!)
How about taking the families that attend your Easter egg hunt on an amazing journey? This is a step-by-step guide to taking your attendees on an adventure they will never forget. As guests visit each station, they’ll discover the powerful emotions and sacrifice of Jesus’ last days on earth—and experience the joy of His resurrection!
Here’s an idea that I’ve used with the kids in my ministry. Tell the Easter story using items you’ve hidden in plastic eggs. You can give God thanks for each part of the Easter story you uncover. Just make sure you label the eggs so you know what order to open them in!
This is the perfect help for figuring out how to have a successful Easter egg hunt for church outreach that helps families find more than just candy and plastic eggs. Use this Easter Outreach to guide families toward the True Hope of the season with this outreach event.
