One of my favorite traditions to do with my son has been creating a Resurrection Garden. Not only is this a fun activity to do with kids to teach them the Easter Story, but it's also a beautiful and meaningful decoration.
The first step is to gather your supplies. You will need a large terra cotta saucer, a smaller terra cotta pot, a large rock, small pebbles, dirt, moss, sticks and twine. You can probably find most of the supplies in your garage and backyard!
Add some dirt to the saucer. It doesn't need to be completely full - just enough to cover the bottom.
Next, lay the smaller pot on the side. This will be your tomb.
Now, let's add the rocks. The small pebbles are added to make a pathway. The large rock position to the side of the tomb. As you can see, the boulder was rolled to the side and the tomb is empty because He is risen! Find out the rest of the steps on our blog!

    This is such a beautiful idea as well as a lovely table center piece. Next Easter I know I will have one and I might add a crypt with a large "stone" to roll away on Easter Sunday. What do you think? Would that be too much or just enough?
