The 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting Team has a free download for you and your family to celebrate Passion Week with faith. One of the activities centers around a resurrection garden. Build a garden with your family to prepare for Easter. Here’s how!
Resurrection Garden for Easter
container- deep enough for soil and grass
small pot or container
stone large enough to cover opening in pot
spray bottle filled with water
optional: mini plants, blue glass beads
Place soil in container. Lay small pot on its side for the opening on the tomb. Cover with soil. Set large stone at the entrance of the tomb. Use small stones to create a path. Add mini plants. Sprinkle with grass seed, avoiding stone path. Sprinkle whole cloves in the pot. Spray to moisten soil and seeds. Water soil. Place in a sunny window. Cover with plastic wrap to create a “greenhouse” for the germinating seeds. Add water as needed.
Include God’s Word, the Bible, to your project time! Read the story in John 19:38-42, where Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus prepare Jesus’ body and lay him in the tomb. On Easter morning, roll away the stone and read John 20:1-8 to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
You’ll find a whole week of activities for families in No Greater Gift: A Family Guide for Celebrating Passion Week and the Resurrection.
