Holy Week Scavenger Hunt

Easter Resurrection Garden

With Easter just a few weeks away it's a great time to start an Easter resurrection garden. This version only takes a few items: Tray, cup, sticks, glue, dirt, pebbles, large rock and grass seed.
Directions: Add dirt to the tray. Cut the cup in half and place one half in the dirt for the tomb. Cover the cup with dirt. Cut/break your sticks to the length you need. Glue the pieces together to make three crosses. You can also use rubber bands or twine if you don't have glue. Place the crosses in the dirt. Sprinkle grass seed on the dirt. You can place the pebbles and large rock in front of the tomb. Put your garden in a place where it will get direct sunlight and spray it with water daily to watch it grow. When Easter arrives, roll the stone away to reveal the empty tomb!
If you don't have all these items available use your imagination. You can even use plastic Easter grass if you don't have grass seed. 😉
If you make a garden, post a picture so we can stay connected and see what everyone's garden looks like!
