Dear UU Parents and Guardians,
Paper Egg Hunt At Our Church!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
1. Print this WORKSHEET and visit our church grounds.
2. Look for the signs that have Easter eggs on them and a message.
All signs will be in the back of the church near the playground (NONE go down into the hidden garden).
3. Fill in the missing words on your worksheet by reading the posted signs.
4. Take a picture of your completed worksheet and email to me
Take a picture of one of the signs and email to me
Write me an email that includes the missing words.
Send to me by midnight on April 5th in order to...
5. Receive a MYSTERY PRIZE for participation!!!
Please be aware that Bluestem Montessori plays in our playground during the day. They most often are on the grounds M-F around 1pm and 3pm. If you are available to do the egg hunt in the morning, after 5pm, or any time on the weekends, that would be preferable in order to give them space.
Also - if you do the egg hunt and happen to notice that one of the signs is damaged or has fallen down, please let me know so that I can return to the building to fix.
STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS ABOUT AN ONLINE EGG HUNT AS WELL!!!
Easter Coloring Sheets
Attached you will find printable Easter Egg coloring sheets which have CHALICES on them!
Perhaps you have heard of 'The Great Lincoln Egg Hunt'?
Well, now we are adding in UU Easter Eggs!
It's as easy as printing, coloring, and putting on your window.
Adults are welcome and encouraged to decorate an egg as well!
It would also be terrific if you wanted to take a photo of your decorated window and
post to our Unitarian Church Social Page on Facebook, or on Twitter, or Instagram,
using the hashtag: #uuchurchlincolnathome
And/Or post to celebrate if you see someone else's decorated window!
(Please do not post exact addresses...although those are all accessible through our online database for members)
Easter is April 4th this year. Feel free to put these up anytime between now and then.
If you do NOT have a printer:
1. I am happy to drop off coloring sheets to you, just let me know OR
2. If you are signed up for our 'Sunday School in a Bag' activities, I will be including these coloring sheets in those bags in mid-March.
