Happy Easter Everyone!

Here's an Easter Egg Hunt with Real Meaning!
Fill 12 Eggs with the contents listed below.
(You can use the pictures included in the PDF File,
or the actual thing.)
Write a number on each of the plastic eggs.
Send the family out to find the eggs.
Don't open them until each of the 12 Eggs
have been found.
Once the eggs have been found:
Take turns opening them starting with #1.
Show the symbol and then read the scripture
that goes along with it.
Continue through all 12 Eggs.
You may want to take the opportunity to
bear your Testimony to your family
after the last egg.
Egg #1:  3 Dimes
(30 Pieces of Silver)
Egg #2:  A Small Cracker or Piece of Bread
Egg #3:  A Sacrament Cup
(Yep, this is an old one!)
Egg #4:  A Length of Twine
Egg #5:  A Piece of Soap
Egg #6:  A Swatch of Purple Cloth
or a Crown of Thorns.
(One real thorn can be used here.)
Egg #7:  A Nail
Egg #8:  Two Toothpicks or Some Small Sticks
(To represent, casting lots.)
Egg #9:  A Bag of Crushed Rocks and Potting Soil
Egg #10:  Strips of White Cloth
Egg #11:  Spices Tied in a Small Piece of Cloth
Egg #12:  Leave This Egg Empty!
He is not here . . .
HE IS RISEN!!!
We hope you have been able to remember
the Savior this Easter, and to
bear Testimony of His life and mission.

.............................................................We really like your idea but we aren't able to copy it for an Achievement Day Activity for the girls on March 14th. Please email at peacegiver@gmail.com as how we can copy off the Easter Theme. Thank you for your time.

I think I'm going to make this a tradition every year! I've been wanting to do something with more meaning behind it so thank you for all your work!

Thanks for posting the links to the files. I was looking for a last minute sharing time on Easter. I'm an American expat living in Nigeria and a Primary President. I have no plastic eggs, but decided I could just use your pictures and hide them. Perfect for our small Primary. Thank you!

I was wondering if you know the name of the picture of Christ you use in this post?

Thanks so much for posting this idea! I adapted it for a Easter Saturday Primary Activity. I split our primary into four groups and had 4 dozen eggs using your scriptures and pictures. Thanks SO much sharing your hard work!
