Easter Games



These activities are free, however they are only to be used for classroom and personal use. They may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.




The Empty Tomb File Folder Game: The objective of the game is to get to the empty tomb first. Players take turns spinning the spinner and then moving their marker ahead to the next space of that color. (Like Candy Land)

The Empty Tomb Game- Directions, Game Board, Spinner








Jelly Bean Prayer Game- The objective of the game is to collect the most Jelly Bean jar cards and get to FINISH. Place your markers on the "START” space. The players roll a die and follow the directions on the space they land on. If they land on a Jelly Bean jar space, the player draws a card and reads the question out loud. (If they cannot read, the teacher or someone else can read it for them). On each card is a question about Jesus. If they answer correctly, they receive a Jelly Bean jar card. If they are not correct, they do not receive a card. Younger players do not have to answer a question and automatically receive a card. If a player lands on a space that says “Return a Card”, they must return 1 Jelly Bean jar card to the pile. Players must collect as many Jelly Bean jar cards as they can as they move around the board to FINISH. As each player reaches FINISH, their Jelly Bean jar cards are counted. Whoever has the most cards, wins.

Oy! I'm catching up on my reading here. You've got a ton of new stuff. I may have to steal some of these things for next week. Shhh! Don't tell Laura!

Debbie-
I'm so glad that you are using it. At least someone is!

I'm posting my Easter lesson plan on Friday so you might find some more stuff for your students that you can use. :)

Not sure why, but the game boards are looking all scrambled up when downloaded. :(

Lisa Boyle- I just downloaded the game boards and they worked for me. I don't know why you are having problems. Sorry.
