Bible Story Activities.

Print the Questions about the Resurrection.
Cut out the questions and answers and put the answers to the questions in plastic eggs.  Hide the eggs outside.  Let the children go on a Resurrection Egg Hunt.
After all the eggs have been found, ask all the questions while playing a game of Ring the Bell.  An alternative is to put the question in one egg and an answer in another egg.  Then let the children match the questions with the right answers.  Or you could just put the verse reference in the egg.  Or mix it up.
Another alternative is to use the questions and answers in a Scavenger Hunt.
