- Easter Egg hunt for Scripture reference (and candy!)
- Read Matthew 26:36-40 / Mark 14:32-37 . Ask your children about what kinds of things they think are scary. What kinds of things hurt? Jesus was facing something very scary and very painful. Yet he loved us so much, he was willing to die on the cross.
- Show a nail to your children. Have them touch the end of it. Talk about how Jesus was going to have nails put into his hands and feet. If you want to give some hands on time to the reality of Jesus’ pain, have your children hammer a nail into some wood.
- Pray together. Thank Jesus for loving us so much.
