Jellybean Poem

Here is another easy Easter idea. The girls and I had fun dividing up jellybeans by color (a good sorting activity), putting one of each into baggies (one-to-one correspondence), and then tying them up with a bow (okay, I did that part). Then we delivered them to our neighbors to share the real meaning of Easter. We made these at my MOPS group last year (the picture of the girls is from last year, too).
Here is the poem, by Charlene Dickensen:

Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of Jellybeans
So colorful and sweet,
is a prayer, is a promise,
is a loved one's treat.
