Easter Story Mix

by Grace and Liberty from Nebraska

Gather

pretzel sticks (represent the Cross)
Hershey's Kisses (God's love for you)
dried cranberries (the blood He shed)
vanilla wafers (the stone that rolled away)
gummy bears or jellybeans (your new life in Christ)

Go

1. Mix equal amounts of ingredients in large bowl.
2. Put into fun bags with the poem below. Give them to friends and neighbors as an Easter gift:
The Cross where Jesus died,
The love for you He felt inside,
The stone He rolled away,
The life He brings today.

Easter is a gift, it's true,
A special present from God to you.
We hope you enjoy this special treat
That makes this holy day extra sweet!
