An Easter garden is a way to help teach children about Jesus and how he died for us and rose again. It’s a small garden with items that represent the Easter Story. You can find a

For your own garden you will need:
- A shallow tray, pan or dish
- Moss or cut grass
- Small stones or gravel
- A large stone
- A small flower pot or plastic cup
- 6 sticks or twigs
- String or sewing thread
- A small piece of white cloth, ribbon or paper
- Spring flowers
To make your Easter Garden
- Place your flowerpot on its side in the tray (this will be the tomb).
- Cover the tray and the top of the flowerpot with moss/cut grass.
- Cover the soil with moss.
- Make 3 crosses by tying the sticks together with string or thread.
- Stick them into moss at the side of your tin. If you have one cross that is bigger than the others, place it in the centre to represent the cross on which Jesus was crucified.
- Make a path to the tomb with the small stones to show how the women ran to the tomb on Easter morning.
- Place a folded piece of white cloth inside the tomb to represent the risen Lord.
- Place the large stone to the side of the tomb entrance to represent the stone that was rolled away.
- Place your flowers in the garden.
When you have finished your garden take a photograph of it and send it to email@example.com so that we can put all the photographs together for a display in church.
