I love Easter. I love doing meaningful activities to celebrate the most important holiday in our Christian walk. I want to prepare our hearts for Easter. I loved this when I saw it and added it to our Resources and Activities for Easter.
You have probably seen the pictures on facebook and pinterest about the Easter Resurrection Garden. I love the idea, so we made
one two this week…one for each boy.
It would have been better to have made it earlier so the grass could be bigger, but hopefully we will have a little grass before Easter.
This is a great project for Easter and we loved making it, as we talked through the Easter story.
- Terra Cotta/Clay mini pot (for the tomb)
- Terra Cotta/Clay tray
- Potting Soil
- Small Pebbles (our bag said “sand”) from the floral department
- Grass Seed
- Large Rock (to cover mini-pot)
- Twigs (to make crosses)
- Glue gun
- Spray Bottle
Lay the clay pot on its side to represent the tomb. Pour potting soil around it and form a hill in the back for the crosses. Pack it down…ours keeps settling.
Spread rock/pebbles around the front. Sprinkle grass seed generously on the potting soil.
Place a large rock in front of tomb.
Form three crosses out of sticks using a hot glue gun and place on hill above tomb. (The boys added another cross with a verse)
Spray with water daily. Hopefully in about 10 days, grass will grow.
I love this meaningful way to celebrate Easter! If you don’t have time for the grass to grow or would like another version of the garden, visit here.
