Egg-shaped Play-Doh (in matching egg-shaped containers!) are such an easy idea that I’m surprised I haven’t seen it before this year. Put a bunch of these on a table so that kids have something constructive to do before your kids church service starts. Or use them as an object lesson similar to Egg Storytelling.
2 - Egg Toss Game
Yes, the Egg Toss Game does have large, unblinking, lifeless eyes. However, you grab two of these and you have a great kids church game! Or provide one of these for each of your kids church small groups and have them use it as an icebreaker. The small group member that is the last to catch has to answer a pre-determined question about their lives.
My guess (based on my own experience) is that every kids church on the planet has a handful of anime kids and at least one anime teen volunteer. This is a prize that they would go totally anime eyes for! It’s got a bunch of squishy mochi toys and fidget poppers and they’re all in the color of Sailor Moon (or whatever it is they watch 🤷🏽♂️.)
These Easter sticker sheets are another great pre-service activity/small group icebreaker combo. Drop a few on a table and watch kids flock to it as soon as they get dropped off. Or use it in small groups as a way for kids to express their personalities or favorite accessories. Either way, have them write their names on them and make sure it gets to their parents because these will go up on the fridge for sure!
Technically this Easter matching game is targeted at preschoolers. But they look surprisingly fun for any age! They can be done at one’s own pace as a pre-service activity or even competitively as a kids church game. And then when all the kids have been picked up you can enjoy it all to yourself in that sweet, post-service silence. (Unless you have your own kids.)
