I love to research ideas to make familiar Bible stories come to life in new, fresh ways, especially around holidays. Today I’ll share a resource that might be a great activity to have children in your elementary ministry do this Easter.
Kidology’s Resurrection Clue Hunt is an adaptation of the classic deduction game, Clue. Designed for children ages 7-13, it is a lesson-based game that helps to uncover the many aspects of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.
During the game, players (in groups of 4-6) must discover which PEOPLE clue is missing, what LOCATION clue is unknown, and which OBJECT clue is needed to complete the set. As the children hunt for clues, biblical investigation and devotionals illustrate how the clues fit together to shape the resurrection story.
Initially I thought the game was more like an actual scavenger hunt than a game played in a small group or family setting. (Now ideas are running through my head as to how we might adapt it that way!) I love that the game is interactive while also helping children understand the crucifixion and resurrection in a new way. I also love how the game is not only designed for fun but also incorporates learning through scripture and discussion. The game is also a great family night activity!
I think that children, teachers and families would enjoy playing Resurrection Clue Hunt this Easter. The PDF game download includes:
- Detailed Instruction Guide
- Original, eye-catching artwork
- Printable set of 20 cards (color and b/w versions)
- Printable “Explorer Notebooks”
- 20 “Fact Sheet” devotionals
- Additional access to fact sheets via QR code
