Resurrection activities for kids

Goofy started by adding dirt to our plastic drop tray. We added our pot to be the tomb and then put dirt around and on top of the tomb.

We used twine to attach to twigs together to make a cross. We made our center one for Jesus a little bigger. We pressed them in the dirt above the tomb. Then the kids sprinkled on the grass seed.

Minnie added the large rock next to the tomb and got to spray all the grass seed.
