Easter Garden How To

You'll need a
potting soil,
small rocks,
a small pot,
grass or wheat seed,
sticks, string
A rock big enough to cover the opening of the smaller pot.
Fill your wide, shallow pot with potting soil. Lay the small pot in the middle, on it's side, and mound over the top and sides with potting soil. Sprinkle your seeds all over, except for an area in front of the small pot's opening. We soaked our wheat seeds to give them a head start. Put small rocks in front of smaller pot on it's side, and a few at the mouth of the pot itself as the opening of the tomb. Put the larger rock to the side of the pot- (or cover the "tomb" on Good Friday and "open" on Easter morning!) 
Create crosses out of sticks and string and "Plant" on top of the hill you created when you mounded over the top of the smaller pot.
Water daily. Flower also cut up small socks as "tomb clothes" and put them inside the side turned pot.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... 

Flower loved this project and tended her sweet Easter garden with care. Wishing you a blessed Easter!
