Set up: Hide empty plastic Easter eggs, but tape them shut with decorative tape so kids can't peek inside.
Using a child-friendly Bible tell the crucifixion story up to the point where Jesus was put into the tomb. Now send the children to hunt for the eggs. Once all the eggs are found have children sit in a circle to open them, only to discover the eggs are empty! Relate their disappointment and surprise of finding their eggs empty, to how Jesus' followers felt when they discovered the empty tomb. Then say, but Jesus is risen and that's the sweetest message for our lives. Then bring out a large bowl of candy for kids to fill their own eggs, or one large egg, to take home.

After the game, have children make their own set of Easter
