Looking for an easy and fun kid’s game to play in Children’s Church, Bible Class, Youth Group, Bible Class, or just for fun? Resurrector is a really fun game– that can actually tie in with your Bible lessons!
This Bible game is really fun, and works best with upper elementary students.
Full disclosure, I learned it from one of the volunteers in Children’s Church, so I am not sure where it came from. If you know, please let me know!
I love to use this game around Easter, or to talk about Lazarus.

How to Play Resurrector
Materials: Pieces of paper with R, D, and numbers
- First off, you need to prep the papers. You will need to cut pieces of paper. One piece will need a D. One will need an R. The others don’t matter– I usually put numbers on them, so they won’t get confused with the letters. You will need one piece of paper for each student.
- Students sit in a circle. Then one person passes out the pieces of paper. These are SECRET so don’t let them show anyone.
- After the students look at their papers, have them fold them up and hand them back to whoever passed them out.
- The person who got the R is the resurrector. This person’s job is to wink at people around the circle. When they wink at someone, that person stands up and says, “I’m alive!”
- The person with the D is the Detective. The detective stands in the middle and tries to guess who the resurrector is.
- The people with the numbers are the towns people who are being resurrected.
- The goal of the game is for the detective to guess the resurrector before the whole town is resurrected. If they guess correctly, they win. If they don’t, then the resurrector wins.
- After one round is over, shuffle the cards and have students draw a new one!
So there you have it! An easy, Bible based kid’s game for church! This one is a lot of fun. It can be trickier with younger students, but they can still play. The biggest thing is getting the kids to wink obviously enough that they don’t get confused with someone who is just blinking.
