One large plastic egg, (about the size of a child's ball and is used as a decoration...you can find
it at Walmart), Children's praise music with player, small plastic eggs filled with
prizes/candy for each player to receive.
How to Play:
Played similar to "Hot Potato". Children stand in a circle, then
turn on the praise music and pass the large egg around. When the music stops, the child left holding the egg yells out, "He is
risen!" and all the other children yell, "He is risen
indeed!" You then give a small prize egg to the child with the large egg and
s/he is out of the game. Play continues until everyone has a prize egg.

Lily writes, "We are planning on using the *Resurrection Eggs
this year in our egg hunt. I love to get our older people and younger people together, so I have asked
the older members of our church to come and read the verses that accompanies
each egg. Each egg will be numbered and each child will be told that if
they can only have one numbered egg in their baskets. After the hunt, the
12 children that find the Resurrection Eggs will get to come up on stage and
reveal what their egg holds as the older people read the verses."
"This game could also be used as a time filler at the end of class to go
over the day's memory verse. You could play using a small Bible instead of
an egg, and when the music stops, have the child recite the verse. If they
get it correct they get rewarded with a sticker or piece of candy. If
they miss it, they continue playing until everyone has said the verse and has
received a small prize."
