Our Resurrection Garden

It was my dear friend Sheila first showed this idea to me.  Before I knew it everyone was making them.  I was also getting ready to be away from the house for two weeks so I knew that I really could do this then.   When we came back, I knew for sure I was going to do it. We did ours a little to late-our grass did not grow really yet, but the kid had fun, and I had little devotions with each time.

To make you need

A bottom of a pot (saucer)

A small clay pot

soil

grass seed

a rock (use used the saucer that fit the small pot)

Rocks (we used the broken cement that was in our yard that the kids made a mess with -yep two stones on that one)

three crosses.  Most were making them with twigs and hot glue.  I use three cross from our church.  They were used as necklaces that everyone was wearing.

As we made it we talked about the story leading up to Good Friday.  We talked about why Jesus needed to goto the cross.

My Little Ham, always wanting to be in the picture!

It sat like this till the evening out Good Friday.  My original goal was to have them write and draw sins and put it in then close it up.  But we got back too late and they were so tired.  So we just “put” our sins in there, and closed it up.

There are three cross on there, the just put two of the side also.

My grass wasn’t growing fast so I covered with plastic wrap (left over from Christmas!)

On Saturday Isaiah asked me what was going on in the tomb.  I said a big battle.  He leans in to listen…”I think Jesus wins”  Oh from the mouth of children!

And now, the first thing they see before Easter Baskets is the open empty tomb.
