Jellybean Easter Poem

Here is another easy Easter idea that you can do with your kids. Divide up jellybeans by color (a good sorting activity), put one of each into baggies (one-to-one correspondence), and then tie them up with a bow with the poem below attached. Deliver them to neighbors, librarians, classmates, relatives, etc. to share the real meaning of Easter.

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.

This week Target has Lifesavers Jellybeans on sale for $1.88.
Use the $1/2 coupon here to get them for $1.38 each.
CVS has jellybeans on sale for $0.77 this week, but they don't have black or white in them. It looks like the Lifesavers Jellybeans have white, but I'm not sure about black.
