The Resurrection Clue Hunt



When we saw this game created by our friend and partner in ministry, Karl Bastian, we knew we had to show it to you. You'll love it. Karl is the founder of Kidology.org and has a treasure of resources for Christian parents and church leaders. He was honored to be selected as one of Children's Ministry Magazine's top 20 leaders.  Here's Karl...

Hi, I'm Karl. Just for a moment, I want you to imagine sitting around the kitchen table after a meal, or around a coffee table in the family room, passing out some colorful playing cards, and getting ready to learn about the Easter Story in a fun, interactive, and educational way? That's what "Resurrection Clue Hunt" is all about! 

First as a dad, and secondly as a children's pastor, I wanted to come up with a way to engage kids creatively in this amazing story that serves as the foundation of the Christian Faith. While the characters, locations and objects of the Christmas Story are very familiar to kids today - the Easter Story has a lot of amazing details that are often not known. 

Resurrection Clue Hunt is an adaptation of a classic deduction game that helps to uncover the many aspects of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection story. Parents and kids alike are fellow explorers searching for clues that tell the story of Jesus' death and resurrection. However, three clues are missing! To win this game, family members must discover which PEOPLE clue is missing, what LOCATION clue is unknown, and which OBJECT clue is needed to complete the set.

During this adventure, as explorers hunt for clues, companion devotional "Fact Sheets" feature Bible verses, discussion questions, and teaching applications. This process illustrates how the clues fit together to shape the resurrection story!

BONUS: If you have a smart phone or Internet enabled tablet, you can even use the embedded QR codes on each card to access the devotional "Fact Sheets" on your device to deepen the learning experience. 

Who says family devotional time has to be boring? Not only will your kids learn a lot about the people, places, and objects of this important story, but the the game can be replayed as many times as you want with different combinations and different devotionals being accessed each time. (A total of 20 devotionals are included representing each person, place and object.)

  3. This game is modeled after the game CLUE. I would say older elementary to early adolescence. Let's ask Karl Bastian to kick in some thoughts here. --Scott Turansky

  4. As Scott said, it is based on the classic game CLUE, so the age will vary based on the deductive ability of the child. That said, we have pegged the age range at 7-13.
