DIY: How to Make a Simple Easter Garden
Looking for an easy yet meaningful Easter project for the kiddos? This one is simple but it does take some pre-planning. That’s why I’m telling you about it now.
We’ve tried the Resurrection Cookies in the past, but we really didn’t care for the taste. So this will be something fun that we won’t have to eat.
What you’ll need:
- Terra cotta or plastic tray (I recommend this inexpensive one)
- Potting soil
- Small peat flower pot
- Grass seed
- Twigs to make the crosses
- A large rock, and some pebbles for a walkway, if desired
- Spray bottle to water the grass
Here are the directions:
Use a small peat flower pot for the tomb. Cover with potting soil. Sprinkle grass seed generously on top of soil. Add three crosses made from twigs and rocks as desired. Keep grass seed moistened using a spray water bottle. Spritz it several times a day. Set it in a warm sunny location. The seeds should sprout in 7-10 days, so plan accordingly.
The tomb is EMPTY! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! ♥
Note: This is not my own idea, but one that a friend sent to me, which we are planning to try for Easter. I believe the original idea and photo are from Melissa Holt, who shared the idea on Facebook. I thought it was an incredible craft idea, and wanted to share it with my friends.
