Elementary Bible Game: Easter Treasure Hunt
Published: July 9, 2012
Use this fun Easter Treasure Hunt to help kids better understand the true meaning of the “treasure” God has given each of us.
For Easter we have an Easter treasure hunt. We have groups of children visit 14 numbered locations around our church where they read Scriptures related to Holy Week and receive items or “treasures” related to those Scriptures.
We place the children, whom we call Treasure Hunters, into groups of no more than 10, and assign each group an adult Treasure Leader. The Treasure Leader has an “Easter Treasure Hunt Guide” that includes the Scriptures and treasures the groups will collect. Groups go to their first location (each group’s location is different) where an adult called a Treasure Keeper asks them to read a Scripture and gives them an item or “treasure” related to that Scripture. The Treasure Keeper then marks off that treasure on the group’s guide.
