Are you looking for another simple and fun activity to enjoy with your family this Easter?
1. Paper and Pencil
Give each person a piece of paper and a pencil. (If you have children who have yet to learn to read and write, assign them a partner to work with.)
Have each person/partner team write the word “Easter” down the left side of their paper.
3. Write and Share
Have each person/partner team write down one word they can think of that relates to the Easter story and starts with a letter found in the word “Easter”. Continue to do so for each of the letters found in the word “Easter.”
Write each word chosen next to the corresponding letter.
“E – Endured.” Christ endured the cross.
“A – Accepted.” Christ accepted God’s will.
“S – Sins.” Christ died for our sins.
And so on.
When time is up share the words written down.
If time, your family may enjoy thinking of Bible verses that relate to the Easter story and have one of the shared words in them. (For example, “E – Endured: Hebrews 12:2”)
