Easter Crafts – Real Flowers Easter Garden Activity

I’ve never made an Easter garden with real flowers, until last week. I love Easter crafts and the object lessons you can discuss as a family. Here are pics from my garden.

I also made an Easter garden with grass seed which I hope to post this week. Seems like everything is taking a little longer than expected.

Easter Crafts - Easter GardenI stopped at Lowe’s to pick up some flowers for our front yard gardens and decided to add a few items to make an Easter garden with real flowers.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden Line with foilFor the garden tray, I used one of those long trays you get at the nursery. It holds 6 six packs of flowers. You can use an actual garden tray, if you like. I decided to save some money and use what I had. When you line the tray with foil, be sure to punch a few holes in the foil for drainage.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden SoilAdd soil or potting mix to your tray.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden PlantsI use my thumb to separate the roots at the base of each plant. This allows the roots to expand. Place your flowers around your tray. Arrange to your liking.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden TombLay the small pot or cup on its side. Place it in your garden for your tomb. If you like, you can place a small doll in the tomb on Good Friday.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden PathCreate a path or road leading to the tomb. Use sand, pebbles or rocks. I bought a bag of sand in the crafts department of WalMart. In the past, I’ve bought rocks from the 99cents store.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden CrossMake 3 crosses from twigs. I tried gluing them together with Elmer’s Glue, but they would not hold. So, I found brown thread and tied them together. That seems to work just fine.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden Rock

Insert your crosses in your garden. Here the crosses are lined up in the middle of the garden. I also placed them throughout the flowers on the small hill. Be sure to place the rock in front of the tomb on Good Friday.

Easter Crafts - Easter Garden on Sunday

On Saturday night (after your kids go to bed), remove the rock from the tomb. If you place a small doll in the tomb, remove that also. When your kids wake up on Sunday morning, the tomb will be empty . . . just like it was when the disciples and women found it on Easter morning.

When our kids were growing up, we read specific Scripture during Passion Week. If you’d like our list of verses to read each day from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, just enter your email below. We’ll send it automatically to you.
