How to Play:
Print out the colorful Easter eggs. Write a variety of song titles on the back of the eggs. Or, alternatively, you could use plastic Easter eggs with a slip of paper inside with a song title. Hide the eggs around the room.
Hide the first egg on the whiteboard. “Find” the egg and explain that there are colorful eggs hidden all around the Primary room! Pick a new volunteer to help you hunt and retrieve ONE hidden Easter egg while you sing through the first song that was written on the back of the egg.
Continue finding eggs and singing the song on the back until you’ve made your way through your singing time.

Easter Egg Song Hunt Extension Ideas
Everyone Hunts: Give the kids 1-2 minutes to color and decorate an Easter egg. Everyone hides their egg and then everyone gets to find a new egg during the next song.
Sing through a list of pre-selected songs or the same song on repeat. After each song, the children get 15 seconds to hide their egg again and return to their seats. Sing and let them hunt for eggs again!
Color & Sing: Let the kids color in an Easter Egg, then write a song on the back. Bring them all up front into an Easter Basket. Shuffle all the colored eggs and draw one randomly. Sing the song on the back! Or, add in a fun mix of ways to sing Primary songs on the back instead to repeat just one song.
Sing or Dare: Put a mix of songs and fun Easter themed dares on the back of the eggs. If a dare is drawn, you’ll draw again after the dare is complete! Fun ideas could include:
- Hop like a bunny
- Everyone makes bunny ears through the next song
- Draw your best bunny on the whiteboard
- Stand still and strong like guards of the Tomb
- Wave your arms like Easter palm leaves during the next song
- Shake an egg shaker during the next song
Easter Egg Match: Print 2 of each color and place them all upside down on the whiteboard. Flip over eggs and look for the matching pairs. When you find a match, sing through the song title written on each or a verse number!
