As my sisters and I have mentioned before, 4 out of the 7 of us work in a program for kids called Cubbies. It is at our church and we all work in the 4 year old classroom. Once a week we spend time with all these little four yearolds and teach them about Jesus. Around every holiday we try and do something special for the specific kids at each of our tables. I have four little girls at my table and needed to think up something for Easter. I decided to do a project with the Jelly Bean Prayer. I love how each color of Jelly Beans tells the story of Christ, and kids seem to love it. I found a great printable from Mama-Jenn, check it out, it is my favorite so far out of all the ones I've seen. Now this project is very simple, but a great and fun way to teach kids about Resurrection Sunday.
Jelly Bean Fabric (found mine at Joann's)
Step 1: Cut out your Jelly Bean Prayer Printable
Step 2: Fill your jars with Jelly Beans (I like to do rows of colors to go along with the poem)
Step 3: Cut out square swatches of fabric and place them on top of the canning jar lid, screw on the lid.
Step 4: Hole punch a corner of the printable and with your ribbon secure it around the lid.
TA DA Finished!!
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and
the life: he that believeth in me, though he were
dead, yet shall he live:
