Do like the Skit Guys suggested and phone, text, email, your friends and family and let them know you love them and what you love about them.

Also, next time you’re all sitting around the dinner table go around the table and have everyone share what they love about each person. Hey, maybe you want to wash everyone’s feet before dinner!

Virtual Easter Egg Hunt

Martha Ann Yamnitz made this virtual Easter egg hunt using a Matterport 3D video a friend made of her church sanctuary, Grace United Methodist, during the Christmas holiday. It is a gorgeous sanctuary built by Henry Flagler in the 1800’s in St. Augustine, Florida. Share with your family and friends, just send them the link http://thebibleandme.org/virtual-easter-egg-hunt/. She says, “Hope you enjoy it and Happy Easter everyone!”

Virtual Easter Egg Hunt Directions

      1. Start by making a list of numbers 1 thru 30.
      2. Kids then use their mouse or touch screen to “run” around the sanctuary and find the 30 hidden eggs – some with an Easter message attached.
      3. Click on each egg you find to see what egg number you just found.
      4. Check off each number as you find it till you have found all 30 eggs.
      5. Have fun!

    P.S. I have created a cheat sheet if you need help locating any, just email for a copy.
