Jelly Bean Prayer Easter Traditions

jb1We having been handing out a Jelly Bean Prayer Easter treat for many years. The kids in our junior church group and our own kiddos look forward to it every Easter. They are very simple to make and don’t cost very much. A nice treat with the Resurrection message tied into it. After all, Easter really isn’t about candy and bunnies, it’s about Jesus dying and rising from the dead, so you and I can one day live in heaven with him. 


I used a sandwich bag, jelly beans (Jolly Rancher and store brand to get all the colors we needed) a christmas bow (I was out of ribbon, so I just deconstructed the bow and used it as ribbon), and these great printable tags I found on the internet. You can grab some awesome printable Jelly Bean Prayer Cards from the blog Mama Jenn. Mama Jenn designed the cards and shares them for FREE! She rocks! Put together a simple treat and share an important message. 

Does your family have any Easter traditions? I would love to hear what your family does to celebrate Resurrection day. Let us a comment when you can.

    I just stumbled on the post and wish I would have found it before Easter. I love this and the meaning behind the colors. I can’t wait to do them next year. Thanks for sharing with us.
