For our Easter Event, we’re hosting an Easter Egg Hunt. While one group hunts, the opposite age group (or stragglers) can watch a puppet show and sing some songs. I’ve been scouring the internet looking for some community friendly skits that might be adaptable for all ages. Here’s a few I’ve discovered:
Cymbals of Easter: Two puppets and an adult discuss the different symbols of Easter. Special meaning is found with each symbol: baby animals, an egg, candy, and a cross.
So, What’s Easter All About?: Is Easter really all about the Easter bunny, chocolate and school holidays? Or is there something more?
What is Easter All About? (popular title!): A host interviews three panelists, Miss Know-it-All, Mr. Don’t Know A Lot and Shaun (the sheep) to find out what this holiday really means.
Build Your Faith on the Rock: The tomb rock visits the kids (the one that was rolled away) to tell all about his/her experience that day. We did this one once in our Kids for Christ program. A rolling hit!
Bada-bing-bada-boom! JESUS IS ALIVE!: A couple of monster puppets tell the story of Jesus (about 20 minutes long). Comes with an object lesson, key Bible verse, and review questions!
Bonus: Here’s few sites that have coloring pages for Palm Sunday and Easter:
