Easter Kids Dice Game for Families - Plus FREE PRINTABLE









This is a simple dice game for all ages in the family.



OBJECTIVE of the Game:   
To help the children understand more about Easter and to be able to practice talking about it with the aid of the pictures.


EQUIPPMENT required:    
2 special dice (templates of the 2 different cubes to make the dice are in the FREE PRINTABLE)

INSTRUCTIONS for Preparation:

INSTRUCTIONS for Playing 2 Dice Game:
1.   Each player takes a turn at throwing the 2 dice
2.   The player has to tell something about Easter which links the 2 pictures together 






(eg. First die shows the donkey, second die shows the tomb  -  The donkey was essential for the start of the Easter story and the empty tomb was essential for the end of the Easter story) 







INSTRUCTIONS for Playing a Simpler version:
1.   Each player takes a turn at throwing one of the dice
2.   That person must then tell a short bit of the Easter Story which includes whichever picture shows
(eg. for the church below - we go to church to celebrate that Jesus is alive forever) 





INSTRUCTIONS for Playing with very young children:
1.   Each player takes a turn at throwing one of the dice
2.   That person simply tells what the picture represents and the parents can teach them a small fact about the object.

  1. I love this, Sandra. The lessons learned through this little game will be remembered. Each Easter, as they grow older, even to adulthood, this game will come back to mind, making them smile and be reminded of a piece of the lessons learned. Great!!
