Create Your Own Easter Garden!

There are many traditions associated with Easter, but for our family we try to keep our focus on the Risen Savior, Jesus Christ.

This Easter Garden is a simple and beautiful reminder of the true meaning of Easter. It’s also a fun project to do with your kids.

I got this idea from a photo I saw on Pinterest.

The grass seed will need at least 7-10 days to sprout so you’ll need to plan ahead in order for it to be green and growing for pictures on Easter Morning.

This DIY Easter garden is so simple, but such a great reminder about the reason for the holiday.

These easy Easter garden decorations also make great table centerpieces for your Easter dinner.

Plus, this mini Easter garden is a great project to do together with your children creating great family memories.

So are you ready to learn how to make your own Easter Garden? Here’s how to do this fun project!

Then, on Good Friday, put a little LEGO Jesus inside the “tomb” and move the big rock to seal the tomb. (Set an alarm that as soon as the kids fall asleep, take Jesus out of the tomb and hide him.)

On Easter Sunday have your kids slide the big rock out and notice Jesus is not there!

The Tomb is EMPTY! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

Bible Verses To Display With Your Easter Garden:

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! ~ Luke 24:2-6a

As you can see, this DIY Easter garden is so simple, but such a great reminder about the reason for the holiday.

And, these easy Easter garden decorations also make great table centerpieces for your Easter dinner.

Plus, this mini Easter garden is a great project to do together with your children creating great family memories.
