Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem

Easter is a joyous celebration for Christians around the world, and in this happy remembrance I wanted to share a special little treat with you today, the Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem.

Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem

An Easy DIY Sweet Treat

 

This  DIY project is perfect for handing out a special little Easter treat. Think, school treats, party favors, and more, plus it is super easy. You just need to gather a few things and devote a minimal amount of time.

 

 

Here’s what you need:

  • Container (bag, box, or jar)
  • Jelly Beans
  • Printable Poem
  • Paper and / or Cardstock
  • Glue Stick
  • Ribbon or Stapler

 

This is how you put them together:

You can use bags, jars, or even cute boxes for these treats.

 

Cutting and Trimming the Paper and Cardstock:

  • Print off your Easter Jelly Bean Prayer Poem printable
  • Cut out the poem (I used decorative scissors).
  • Using a paper cutter, cut the cardstock in half vertically.
  • Take each vertical piece, and cut in half horizontially. (This will be the size you use for bags).
  • If making tags for jars or boxes, you can cut each piece in half again.

 

For Bags:

  • Trim cardstock with decorative scissors (if desired). Make sure the cardstock is longer than the poem so you have room to fold it to fit over the bag.
  • Glue the poem to the cardstock (again, leaving blank space at the top of the cardstock).
  • Fill bag with jelly beans (be sure all colors mentioned in the poem are present).
  • Fold the top of the cardstock to fit over bag.
  • Staple  cardstock to the bag.

 

For Jars or Boxes:

  • Trim the cardstock with decorative scissors (if desired).
  • Glue the poem to the cardstock.
  • Punch a hole in the corner of the tag.
  • Run ribbons through the hole.
  • Fill the jar or box with jelly beans (be sure all colors mentioned in the poem are present).
  • Tie the tag to the box or jar.

Pumpkin Prayer – Halloween Activity

The Pumpkin Prayer

A Halloween Activity with God

Are you wanting to do a fun Halloween activity with your kids? How about one that puts your heart and mind in the right place? The Pumpkin Prayer is something you can do that puts God into your Halloween.

Even little children can carve pumpkins with the easy to use Pumpkin Master Carving tools that you find all over town in grocery stores, Target, Walmart, drug stores, or wherever. Everyone will have a wonderful time with this project, and it offers great hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills exercise.

The children will be proud of their creation and want to tell everyone about God’s love and the Pumpkin Prayer. The Pumpkin Prayer would be awesome for a Trunk or Treat event. Set-up a Pumpkin Prayer booth, or attach the free Pumpkin Prayer PRINTABLE to a treat bag!

On to the Activity of the day:

Help your child say the prayer with each step of the carving. Pull them into a conversation about the meaning of each stanza of the prayer. Enjoy!

 

The Pumpkin Prayer

Dear God,

Open my mind so I can learn about you;

Take away all my sin, and forgive me for the wrong things I do;

Open my eyes so Your love I will see;

I’m sorry for turning up my nose to all You have given me;

Open my mouth to tell others You’re near;

Let Your Light shine in all I say and do!

Amen

 

Let your happy little pumpkins show how much God loves you!

My hope is that you will make prayer a special and fun-filled time with your children, while you share this Pumpkin Prayer Halloween activity. Have a blessed day.
