The Resurrection Story Scavenger Hunt

By Alison Zeller  

Everywhere we look there are reminders of the Resurrection story and the new life we have in Jesus. Grab a friend or two and head outside. Work together to find each of the items listed here. Draw each item as you find it.  

  1. The crowds in Jerusalem waved palm branches as they praised Jesus as their King. Find the biggest leaf you can.  
  2. The day before he died, Jesus washed his disciples’ feet to show them how to love one another. Find a fountain, sprinkler, pool, or puddle.   
  3. Jesus’ friend Judas betrayed him for 30 pieces of silver. Find a shiny rock or coin.  
  4. A rooster crowed after Peter had denied knowing Jesus for the third time. Find a bird.  
  5. Jesus died on a wooden cross. Find two sticks and place them in the shape of a cross.  
  6. Jesus’ friends placed him in a tomb and covered the entrance with a giant rock. Find the biggest rock you can.  
  7. On Easter morning, the angel shone bright and announced that Jesus was alive! Find a brightly colored flower.  

Jesus loves you so much that he died and rose again—for you! Now you have new life in him!
