Resurrection garden craft
Here is what you’ll need:
- plastic drip tray (59 cents at Menards) or pie plate
- pot for tomb (make sure it is a good proportion to your base – we ended up using a small canning jar)
- branches to make cross
- rope to make crosses, dirt
- grass seed
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.
Jesus resurrection craft
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.
Christian easter activities
We added some additional rocks and here is our completed garden. We left if on top of our kitchen table in a sunny spot where the kids lovingly sprayed it with water daily.
Easter activities for families
Within 4 days we had grass and by 7 days we had our complete Easter Resurrection Garden. It was a beautiful centerpiece for our Easter table and a good reminder of the real meaning of Easter!
