Our Way of the Cross Scavenger Hunt!
Go through your house and see if you can find the following things:
• Crayons or pencil crayons, to colour in the pictures
• Something with which to make a cross – popsicle sticks and glue, pipe cleaner, playdough, toothpicks, a palm branch…
• Salt water (that can just be salt dissolved in water!)
• Tea lights/candles, matches/lighter
• Olive oil/scented oil
• Something to represent Jesus: a picture, icon, small figure
• White serviette
• A tomb; a place where you will put the representation of Jesus. It could be
a box, a drawer, our you might want to make your own tomb; something
simple, or something like this.
Bring them with you to our Zoom event (or use them at your home event)

VIRTUAL EASTER EGG HUNT
April 4 @ 2pm
The Easter Bunny is in trouble! They spent so much time on Zoom calls that they’ve lost track of their stash of Easter Eggs and need your help to find them.
To participate you’ll need access to a device/smartphone/computer, your family and friends and a whole bunch of creativity to solve the puzzles and help the Easter Bunny locate the missing eggs.
HOW TO JOIN THE HUNT!
The first part will be released by 2pm on Easter Sunday and can be completed on your own time right up until 2pm on Easter Monday!
Joining is easy! Contact James Noronha by text or phone at 647-297-2267 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you want to be part of the Easter Egg Hunt and we’ll let the Easter Bunny know that you need the first clue.
The Easter Egg Hunt is happening but this year it’s virtual! What does that mean?
It means that the Hunt will be part photo scavenger hunt, part escape room, part amazing race and a bit of a random adventure.
The game will start this afternoon with a message sent to all participants letting them know that the Easter Bunny needs their help and giving them their first clue which will start the scavenger hunt.
What do you need?
In order to participate families need access to a smart phone, mobile device or computer (and if necessary the adult or sibling that such a device would be attached too). The device will be used to record pictures of what they find and to communicate with the Easter Bunny and Mission control where James will be located.
When does it start? (TIME CHANGE to 2PM)
We still have a few things to setup this morning (with apologies) I’ve changed the start time to anytime after 2pm this afternoon. Why anytime after? Because the start time is entirely up to you! At 2 pm an email will be sent to everyone who wants to participate. That email can be read at anytime after 2pm on Easter Sunday until 2pm on Easter Monday… and provides instructions on how to start the hunt.
We have it on good authority that the Easter Bunny and their friends will be at Easter Mission Control throughout that time period. So this hunt can be done whenever is most convenient to your family.
Who can participate? This is a TEAM activity… which means the whole family can be involved, regardless of age! We actively encourage help, creativity and thinking outside the box!
How do I join? This part is easy… send an email or text message to james at this email address or at 647 297 2267 (Text preferred)… please provide the email address you wish the first message to be sent too and look out for an email from James at 2pm today.
Are there prizes at the end?Of course! (Though delivery may occur on Monday!)
