Copy patterns (pages 1-5) on pastel-colored card stock paper
and then cut out egg shapes. You can use different colors for each page,
or if you're playing in teams, use one color per team for each set of patterns.
How to Play
Scramble the eggs in the center of the playing area (or hide them). If playing in teams, assign teams their color.
Tell players the following clue before saying go, "Unscramble the eggs and
then arrange the letters to spell out an ancient, two-sentence Easter greeting."
(Keep the answer a secret. The first player or team who correctly spells and shouts out,
"He is risen. He is Risen indeed" wins.)
After the Game
Read Mark 16:1-8 and Luke 24:9-53 from a child-friendly Bible. Point out that the women and men
began their day in sorrow until they met the resurrected Christ; he changed their
sorrow over his death into celebration,
which is why we even to this day when someone says, "He is
risen!" We can joyfully respond, "He is risen indeed!"
