alt My friend went to an evening Easter party on Saturday evening.  The host family has teenagers so most of the families that were invited did as well.  For the Easter egg hunt the host put candies, trinkets, change etc. in the eggs, dipped the eggs in glow in the dark paint and had a Easter egg hunt in the dark.  The teenagers and adults loved the egg hunt.  (Idea by Diana Chambers / 04132009)

alt My daughter planned a simple and fun FHE tonight for Easter.  She colored 16 Easter eggs on card stock and cut them out.  On the back of 8 she put scripture references for scriptures centered on Christ and the Atonement, and on the back of the other 8 she put the actual words of each of the scriptures (without the references.  All the words were typed out for the sake of time.).  She hid the eggs, we hunted for them, and once we found them we read the scriptures and matched them to their references.  (Idea by Jocelyn Williams / ga04102013)

GAMES:

alt Easter Basket Turnover
alt I went on a Easter Egg Hunt - To play, the first player starts by mentioning an item and says, "I went on an Easter Egg Hunt and I found a CANDY BAG."  The next player then adds another item, and also repeats the first item said, "I went on an Easter Egg Hunt and I found a CANDY BAG and a BASKET."  Continue adding a new item each turn until a player forgets to mention a previously mentioned item in the proper sequence.  Continue until one player remains.

alt I made a handout with two sections. One was titled "Spring" and the other "Easter." I put bunnies and flowers on the spring side and a picture of the Savior on the Easter side. Then I talked about how there are new flowers and bunnies and chicks, etc in the spring, but the true meaning of Easter is the resurrection of Christ. I don't know if the little children understood, but it made me feel better! (Idea by Leiane Nelson)

alt We did little Easter Baskets for the Visiting Teachers with a Hollow Plastic Egg and explained the symbolism of the empty egg and the tomb and had the scripture Matthew 28:6 attached.  I have diabetic sisters so no food treats! (Idea by Stephanie Thomas / ga03312007)

alt Last week of the Savior's Life by Craig Alger
alt My husband and I decided to institute a Christ-centered Easter celebration. We created short activities to remind our children of sacred events that happened the last week of the Savior’s mortal ministry. Some of the activities were lighthearted, such as breaking a donkey-shaped piñata to celebrate Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Others were more solemn, such as holding a candlelight dinner on Saturday evening in which we read the Book of Mormon account of the three days of darkness before Christ’s visit to the Americas.  As our children have grown older, we have modified our traditions to match their interests and attention spans. We look forward each year to our special, Christ-centered Easter week. (by Donna Cardon, Idea from April 1999 Ensign)

alt Party with Gram and Gramp - Some of the most memorable family activity is one that we call Grandkids Parties with Gram & Gramp.  On each holiday, each family, my family has 5 siblings so we each take an activity or a food assignment to help my parents out.  My parents have 16 grandkids and they vary in age from 12 to one years old.  We have activities for the older kids and then some activities for the younger children.  We have a craft that goes along with the holiday theme like Twinkies that are made into a bunny face. (The twinkies are actually the two ears and then a pink snowball from Hostess is the bunnies round face.  Then decorate with jellybeans for eyes and string licorice for whiskers.  They are adorable and each child loves them.  We have a game and snacks that go along with the holiday we are celebrating. (cupcake walk, plinko, fish pond, or relay races)  My two girls especially love the holiday parties with their gram & gramp! (Idea by Jana Williams / 091502006)

alt We have a time machine curtain that we use every few months and have someone from the past visit us.  This Easter Sunday we asked a sister in the ward to come as Mary Magdalene.  She studied about Mary’s life so she could share some things with the primary.  She started out by letting the children ask some questions and she would give clues as to who she was.  This sister was so filled with the spirit as she portrayed Mary that all in the room could feel it.  She made us feel as though we were there with her witnessing the Savior on Golgotha and at the tomb.  We felt her joy as she talked about seeing the resurrected Savior.  It was exactly what we wanted to have happen.  (Idea by Jennifer Borup from Kaysville, Utah / ga04162009)

    I have a class of 9 kids, so I turned the scripture egg walk into a play so they all have multiple parts to keep their attention. They are ages 10-11 and ready for a more 'meaty' application. I tweaked it into 10 eggs because they are usually sold that way. Anyway send me an e-mail and I'll send you the file

  • Laura  - Thanks!

    Thanks so much for including my Christ-Centered Easter Baskets in your list! You might also be interested in my Passover Inspired Easter Dinner. All the foods are symbolic of Christ and of the Easter story, and I included recipes as well. You can find it here: http://fhelessons.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/ passover-inspired-easter-dinner/
    Have a Happy Easter!
