Resurrection Garden for Easter


Make a beautiful garden scene to represent the Resurrection and to help teach children about the powerful and incredible events in the Easter story.

Materials Needed:

a shallow dish or planter


small shrubs and flowers

a pot, empty tin or other cave-like object

a flat stone

two twigs and some string or a pipe cleaner

a plain peg doll (optional)

twig cross

First of all we bound the two twigs together using a brown pipe cleaner, to form a cross. We used this as a simple story telling prompt when retelling the story of the crucifixion. This is suitable on any day of the year of course, but particularly as a family worship idea for Good Friday.

Then we constructed a simple garden scene by planting the shrubs and flowers into a barrel and inserted the cross into the background. We used an empty tin garden planter to represent the tomb. We placed a little plain wood peg doll inside to represent Christ being buried and rolled the large stone in front of the tomb.

On Easter morning the children can come down to see the garden and find that the stone has been rolled away from the tomb and is completely empty inside. Read the passage from the Bible and celebrate together with songs and prayers!

“He is not here. He has risen. Come and see the place where He lay.”

Matthew chapter 28 verse 6

The sport of BMX racing attained a great honor in 2003, if the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted to add BMX racing on the 2008 Summer months Olympic Video games in Beijing. Also though they are not the authentic deal, you might consider them as knockoff that are inexpensive and look great.There are four wine regions which consist of (North Coast, South Coast, Central Coast, and Central Valley).C’tait exceptionnel au vrai sens du terme.Through the years the purpose and designs of lanyards have evolved and have become widely used in several industries.The mini type of a chromatic cloth handbag hangs from a heartshaped key fob here.
