Easter – Song Review
This activity is based on the classic game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but instead of a tail and donkey a blindfolded child will attempt to put an Easter egg into a basket. Have a child choose an egg and read the name of the song on the back. Blindfold the child and turn them around. Point them in the right direction. Have the other children help the child find the basket by singing the song soft when the child is far away from the basket and loud when the child is close.
A real basket and plastic eggs can be used, or you can print and cut out the eggs and basket visuals. (I used sparkly paper for my eggs.) Write or print out a list of songs you wish to review and put each one on the back of an egg, or in an egg if plastic eggs are used.
Post the picture of the basket on a wall where there is an open space to get to the basket. For safety, stay next to the blindfolded child to help them when they get near any obstacles. Put removable double-sided tape or sticky tack on the back of each egg so it can stick to the basket. (You may wish to move the basket to a different location each time, but move it when the child is blindfolded.)
Remind the children that eggs are used in the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection because for some people the new chick coming from the egg is a reminder of the risen Lord coming forth from the tomb.
