Easter Review Game

Easter is almost here! In Sunday School we’ve been working on the events of Holy Week for sometime now. I teach a Kindergarten class and find that it can be difficult to find games and lessons appropriate for this age group. So, I made my own. It’s very simple to make and reviews the events leading up to the death and resurrection.

Materials:
Paper/Pen or Computer
Plastic Easter Eggs
Scissors or Paper Cutter

Print or Write out the list below. You’ll want one copy with the numbers to serve as your key (even us adults sometimes forget, maybe more than sometimes), and another copy without the numbers.

Take the copy without the numbers and cut it into slips.

Place the slips in the eggs.

Weather permitting, hide the eggs outside and let the kids go find them. If you’re stuck indoors, place the eggs in a basket and let each child choose one. If you’re doing this at home, you can have your children find the eggs from around the house.

Next, have the kids sort the slips of paper into the order that the events occurred (The same order as they are numbered).

This is a fun way for kids to review previous lessons about the events, and builds up a strong understanding of the scriptures for the future.

Here’s the list that I’ve used. Feel free to adjust the list to meet your needs and cover the stories that you’ve studied.
