Simple Easter Nursery Game: Easter Peek-a-Boo for You

This super simple nursery game, Easter Peek-a-Boo for You, is a twist on a favorite baby and toddler game to teach about Jesus’ Resurrection.

You’ll need:

  • A cup, and
  • a small figure such as a LEGO toy person or another small action figure.

Note: do not let infants handle the toy figure as it could pose a choking risk.

Nursery Game: Easter Peek-a-Boo for You

First, 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 the small figure in a cup. Then, tilt the cup sideways so children can see inside it easily. Next, 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.
