Plant an Easter Garden! Using potting soil, a tiny buried flower pot for the tomb, shade grass seed, and crosses we made from twigs. Sprinkle grass seed generously on top of dirt, keep moistened using a spray water bottle. Spritz it several times a day. Set it in a warm sunny location. Sprouts in 7-10 days so plan ahead. On Good Friday, put a little lego Jesus inside and slide rock to seal tomb. On Sunday the tomb is EMPTY! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
Easter Resurrection Garden Tutorial ~ Create a Simple Easter Garden
Make your Resurrection Gardens before Easter, put a large rock to hide the opening of the "tomb", and watch the grass grow in joyful anticipation of the day when you roll away the rock and find it empty :)
Lent activity: Jesus' Special Sign. Look at the cross each religion class. Water the seeds. When the grass sprouts think about Jesus and his new life. Great spring activity to go outside, collect branches, and to connect science.
