By CTA—Christ to All
What You’ll Need:
- Plastic Tumbler for each child (Item #WUE21PT) or small cups
- Small Easter baskets (2 to 5 is a good number)
- Ping-Pong balls (consider fewer for younger children and more for older children)
- Painter’s tape
What You’ll Do: Prepare for the game by placing the baskets on a table, at least 6 feet apart from each other. Multiple baskets allow several children to play at the same time. Use the tape to make a line on the floor that indicates where the child should stand (it can be closer to the table for younger children and farther away for older children). To play the game, a child will put a Ping-Pong ball in the tumbler and use a tossing motion to try to get the ball into the basket.
What You’ll Say:
We’re going to pretend that these Ping-Pong balls are eggs and toss them into the basket. Does anyone know why we see eggs everywhere at Easter? Eggs remind us of new life because baby chicks hatch from eggs. Jesus came alive on Easter Sunday, giving us amazing new life! Eggs remind us of Easter in another way, too. Once the chick has hatched, the eggshell is empty. Can you think of something in the Easter story that was empty on Easter morning?
