Teaching Kids the Easter Story Using Jellybeans

25 Mar

imageEaster is right around the corner and its a busy but fun time for the whole family. This poem is a great and fun way to reinforce or teach the Easter story using a bag of jellybeans! You can write this poem on poster paper or print out for your kids.

Red is for the blood he gave: Discuss how Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice. On the Friday before Easter he was nailed to the cross where he died for our sins.

Green is for the grass he made: Discuss how God created the earth with land and water.

Yellow is for the sun so bright: Discuss how God created the days and nights using the sun.

Orange is  for the edge of night: Discuss how God created night and the sky turns orange has the sun sets.

Black is for the sins we made: Discuss that Jesus sacrificed his life for our sins by dying on the cross.

White is for the grace he gave: Discuss the kind of person Jesus was.

Purple is for the hour of sorrow: Discuss Jesus dying on the cross

Pink is for our new tomorrow: Discuss because of Jesus and his resurrection, we live a life where our sins are always forgiven. We celebrate Easter by celebrating his resurrection and the great life he lived!

See how you can get money back when purchasing jellybeans on one of my previous posts!
