The meaning behind Easter


Here's a little activity you could do with your little ones leading up to Easter!   It's a tasty treat that can help us all remember why we celebrate Easter.  I'm not sure where I found this originally, but My kids and I love it every year!

The Jelly Bean Prayer


GREEN is for the grassy blade,
YELLOW is for the sun God made.
ORANGE is for a flame so bright.
BLACK is for our sins not right.
RED is for the blood He gave.
White is for Jesus’ grace. He saved.
PURPLE is for the hours of sorrow.
PINK is for a new tomorrow.
An egg of jellybeans, so colorful and sweet,
is a promise, a prayer, and a loved one's treat.
