Easter Projects Done in the Past



Easter Counting Book

This activity could be done anytime with regular stickers but I had lots of Easter stickers to use up.  My 5 year old did this as a center at school so I decided to do it with my 2 year old.  I cut a long piece of construction paper and folded it accordion style until there were 5 “pages”.  On the front I wrote Easter Counting Book and then wrote the numbers 1-5 at the bottom of each page.  She told me the numbers and put the correct amount of stickers on each page.

Resurrection Garden

This is another activity Ashlyn did at school that I thought was really neat.  The kids got to pick out a bowl and fill it with soil.  Then her teacher planted a flower and sprinkled some grass seed.  They made a cross from popsicle sticks and found a rock from outside.  Next, they placed the rock in front of a the bottom part of a plastic Easter egg representing the stone that was in front of Jesus’ tomb.  We have it on our kitchen table and the girls love taking turns trimming the grass with scissors.  I love that every-time we eat, we see the garden and can remember what Jesus did for us and why we celebrate Easter.
