Easter or Resurrection Gardens are a great way to celebrate Easter. They are a reminder of the Easter story and are fun to make. Traditionally they would be made using soil, moss, flowers etc but this version is made entirely from paper and card – if you haven’t got easy access to soil and plants this is for you!
I’ve used – paper plate (a piece of card would do too), cereal box to make the cross (make two cross shapes and glue together so it will stand up), paper ice cream tub for the tomb ( a roll of paper with card glued over an end would be fine), a paper circle for the stone, tissue paper for the path and grass and pictures of flowers from magazines/garden catalogues.
This is a great activity to do with your own children/grandchildren. All you need is a container, some compost, stones, some plants/moss from the garden/seeds and a tomb shape – this could be made from plasticine or clay.
It’s a great outdoor activity or, if indoors, cover the area where you are making it with newspaper. If you are using live plants/seeds keep them watered!
