Every year, we make a Resurrection Garden to help us stay focused on the true meaning of Easter and the days leading up to it. If you’ve never heard of a Resurrection Garden, it is truly a simple, but beautiful family friendly activity that can be quickly put together in an afternoon a few weeks before Easter. After you make it, you watch the grass grow and light the candles, and anticipate the day when the stone will be rolled away from the tomb!
We chose a round basket with a bit of a lip (like this one) for our garden this year. I am really pleased with this choice over some of the other things I’ve tried in the past.
