Homemade Easter Tree
by Rachel KellerHere's another great Easter tradition to share with your children or grand children. You can make it ahead of time make sure they have it to do it with their family.
Two weeks before Easter, we get out our Easter tree. Each day, we place one egg on the tree and read the corresponding Scripture, discussing how it relates to Easter. When my children were younger, we read the Bible story from their picture Bible story book.Easter TreeYou need a tree. (I got mine at the Dollar Store several years ago. I've seen these used as money trees for showers.) You also need several very tiny Easter eggs (to put on the tree), small baggies to hold the Easter eggs, and small strips of paper with the following verses:Day 1: Genesis 3:1-19 (God's first promise of sending a Redeemer)
Day 2: Genesis 22:1-14 (the story of Abraham and Isaac when God provides the ram for the offering)
Day 3: Exodus 12:21-30 (the first Passover)
Day 4: Numbers 21:4-9 (Moses and the brass serpent)
Day 5: Matthew 21:33-46 (parable of the unfaithful stewards)
Day 6: John 12:1-11 (Mary's anointing Jesus' feet with her hair)
Day 7: Matthew 21:1-11 (Jesus' triumphant entry--Palm Sunday)
Day 8: Matthew 26:14-30 (the Last Supper)
Day 9: Matthew 26:31-46 (the Garden of Gethsemane)
Day 10: Matthew 26:47-75 (Judas' betrayal)
Day 11: Matthew 27:11-31 (Jesus' trial before Pilate)
Day 12: Matthew 27:32-56 (the crucifixion)
Day 13: Matthew 27:57-66 (Jesus' burial)
Day 14: Matthew 28:1-10; Mark:16:1-20; Luke 24:1-49; John 20:1-31 (the resurrection)
Start two weeks before Easter. Each day, take the egg out of the little bag and hang it on the tree. Read the verses and discuss the meaning of the verses. On Easter morning, the tree is covered with eggs. (I have extra eggs I hang on the tree and a few other decorations to make it look beautiful.)http://blessingsforlife.com/crafts/eastertree.htm
