XTB: Easter Unscrambled
Easter Unscrambled is designed to help children and families explore the Bible together over the Easter holidays. Three weeks of Bible readings help you focus on what Easter is really all about. Meet Dr Luke as he tells you all about God's rescue plan. Find out Who the rescuer is and Why we need rescuing. Beautifully presented with full-colour illustrations, it is actually two books in one:
XTB (eXplore The Bible) will help 7-11 year olds to get into the Bible for themselves. It's packed with pictures, puzzles and loads of help to follow the clues to see who Jesus is and why He came.
Table Talk - is designed for families (or groups) to use together. Based on just a few verses from the passage that XTB uses, it is suitable for families with children aged from 4 upwards. Table Talk forms the basis for a short family time together - maybe just five minutes at the breakfast or diner table, or whenever best suits you.
Table of contents
- Easter Unpacked is based on John's Gospel. There are 21 days of undated pages with Bible readings and various games and puzzles to help children grasp the point of each lesson. At Day 21 the book switches from XTB to Table Talk. The passages are the same each day for XTB and Table Talk so you can use them together or on their own.

I worked through Easter Unscrambled with my 2 children aged 7 & 10. It was a really great way of them re-visiting the Easter story. We had some brilliant discussions as a result of the studies. Just the right amount of reading and information in each one. Will use it again next year with the little one but will probably need something different for my older daughter.
Useful resource for Youth Club
This is an excellent resource for our Youth Club (boys age 7-11) to learn about God's Salvation Plan and why Jesus had to die. They enjoy the puzzles and activities and it is a great way of introducing the Gospel to non Church families.
This is an another excellent title in this series. Table Talk is an excellent and natural way to have a Bible study with out 5 year old, and our 9 year old (who has done the whole of Table Talk) now enjoys XTB.
A good tool for Bible reading with children
Great to have this in the run up to Easter and during the holidays to do with our 7 year old.
Used this for our 5 year old having done book 4 previously. She loved it, and got upset if it was too late for Bible study. She obviously needed help with many of the puzzles but was able to follow the story and message being delivered
It does what it says and for all ages, even grandparents
We did this at breakfast time over the Easter holidays, it didn't quite tie in with Good Friday and Easter Sunday but was still a very good way of explaining Easter to my 7 and 5 year old, my 2 year old found it short enough to sit through without causing too much fuss. Even got the Grandparents involved whom we were visiting for part of it.
Excellent resource and lots of fun
I worked through this booklet with 2 of my daughters (age 5 and 7) in the run up to Easter this year. We had great fun looking through it and the studies were just about the right length, level etc. The combination of the 'table talk' material at the back and the studies at the front worked really well. The ABCD to following Jesus was really good and we looked at that several times on the way through.
My only criticism and it's a bit pathetic really is that the shiny paper is almost impossible to write on - much frustration was had trying to find a biro that would work on the shiny paper!
My 9 year old love the Xplore books and enjoyed completing this one on his own.
He happily opens his bible in the evenings and reads it with Easter Unscrambled and even attempted to do a more than one study a night!
Excellent for yr 3-6
I offered Easter Unscrambled to our after school yr 3-6 group. The take up was high as a boy within the group had given his testimony and mentioned how helpful he found the XTB notes in 'going on with Jesus'.
We are all really enjoying looking at this after meal times. Our 3 daughters ask to read it and thankfully there are usually 3 sections for each day - so not too many squabbles! A good way of thinking about the real meaning of Easter.
