Materials Needed: A large gift bag with NOTHING in it.
What do you see here? (Gift bag) How do you feel inside when you see that bag? (Happy, excited)
Why? (Because it might be for you; there might be a surprise inside) What do you think might be in a bag of this size?
I would like for (name a child) to come and peek in the bag and tell everyone what is inside. (Nothing)
Are you SURE there is nothing in the bag. Check one more time. (Nothing)
(Shake the bag upside down to show the children it is empty.)
How many of you have ever received a birthday gift and were so excited to open it, but when you did there was nothing in it? How would you feel inside if that ever happened? (Sad and confused as to why someone would give an empty gift)
The Bible tells us of two ladies who went to see where they had put Jesus after He had been crucified, only to find the tomb was EMPTY — totally EMPTY! It was a day that would change everyone’s lives forever.

 Product Reviews

The Easter Week Adventure Family Devotion sets the stage for the whole family to engage in the telling of Jesus' passion. This fun and lively interaction of song and storytelling grabs the attention of the very young. However, the thought provoking questions lead the older members to an inner reflection of their personal beliefs.  As a grandparent I am thrilled to be able to share this with my own grandchildren as we celebrate the passion of Christ.  This devotion is something that can be brought out each year as a family tradition as we remember Easter Week together.
  (Jan Wilkinson, Virginia)

Mary Rice Hopkins has done it again!  Easter  Week Adventure is a complete way to share Easter both at home and church.  Love all the activities!  The "Cross with One Tear" is great for this series of lessons, but what a tool for so many other uses, too! 
 (Lana Young, Missouri)
"I am SO impressed with how creative and interactive these devotionals are! Will be using them not only for family time, but the possibilities are endless for also using them for Sunday school and mid-week children's programming.  Thank you for this resource!"
(D. Robinson, Oklahoma)


Today’s children live busy lives involving school, homework, sports team practices, music and dance lessons, church activities, iPod games, and television. They need to learn how to take time to “be still and know that He is God” (Ps 46:10a).
Making prayer a priority in your classroom is crucial because prayer habits which last a lifetime are formed in childhood. The more children pray, the easier it is for them to pray and the more they will learn about prayer. Prayer is the one thing a child can do that will have great impact on the extending of God’s kingdom, no matter what other skills and talents he may have.
Children need to know at least three things about prayer:
1. Prayer is talking to God in an ordinary manner from the depth of your heart. You can tell God exactly how you feel. You can ask Him your questions; share troubles and concerns; tell Him you’re angry, happy, sad. Prayer about feelings helps children develop a conversational relationship with God and they will come to know what it means to walk with Him and talk with Him on a daily basis. Nothing is too small for prayer. Prayer is not just for the big moments of life. God is in every detail and every minutes.
2. God is always listening. The only comment which needs to be made after a child prays is: “God listens when we pray.” Pointing out answers to prayer helps to affirm God listens.
3. You can pray anytime, anywhere. Prayers don’t need to be postponed until the next trip to church. You don’t even have to wait until you say your prayers before going to sleep at night. You can pray as the need occurs.


Needed for Each Child: One piece white construction paper, gray crayon, glue, and word strip which says: “God is all powerful.”

Activity: Fold the paper in half lengthwise. On the top side, the boys and girls draw the Jericho wall. The children can then decorate the word strip and glue to the bottom half of the paper. Fold so the wall is standing.

Carol Henry says: "We make gift bags for new moms which are taken to the hospital or home after a baby is born or adopted. This has been a cute baby gift bag, but we are thinking of something more permanent which the mom could use in the nursery like a white basket, galvanized “bucket” or clear paint can. We order Sleep Little One lullaby CD’s and receive a 50% discount because we purchase them via phone in quantity. We also include a baby/ toddler Bible, a parenting book, a diaper bag tag from our church, and a brochure with information about our nursery policies. It is my dream to also put in a handmade baby blanket (crochet, knit) from someone in our church. If we had tons of money, we would also include a gift certificate for a massage for mom!"
