Parish Easter Egg Hunt • Gather Us In

This is a variation on the traditional Easter egg hunt. Its purpose is to have a good time while reviewing the concept of the new life we celebrate at Easter. This hunt was originally designed as an at-home activity. If you are doing this in a church setting, you will need to be creative about things like a “bed” (a blanket on a pew will do), a tub, etc. • By Kathleen O'Connell Chesto
