Youth Sermons What’s Inside? The disciples were surprised that the tomb was empty.

Materials Two plastic Easter eggs. Fill one with a few small things that make lots of noise – e.g. nuts, bolts, nails, washers, marbles. Rice or dried beans also work. Close and shake it to test sound. Remove or items to improve the sound. Don’t overfill the egg or the sound will be dull. Hide the noisy egg up your sleeve. Leave the other egg empty.

The Children’s Sermon 1. Pick up the empty egg and shake it with the hand that has the other egg hidden up your sleeve. It will appear to rattle. 2. Ask the children to guess what’s inside. If they are a little quiet, ask them one by one “what’s inside?”

3. After you have a good number of answers, open the egg and show them it is empty. 4. Why did it rattle? Eventually someone will guess. (If they need a clue, try “rattling” a solid object like a candle or a hymnbook to show them)

The Lesson They will be surprised that the egg was empty. The disciples were surprised that the tomb was empty. God had something “up His sleeve.� But for God, it was no trick. Instead it was a miracle. Jesus was raised from the dead.
