FREE Jelly Bean Prayer
The Jelly Bean Prayer by Charlene Dickerson is such a great way to teach children the true meaning of Easter. The resurrection of Jesus!
The poem uses jelly beans to represent different parts of the true story. It uses the sweet treats children love, while teaching them the reason for celebrating.
Each color of jelly bean represents a different part. Here is the poem:
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 His hour of sorrow.
Pink is for a new tomorrow.
A handful of jelly beans,
Colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer, a promise,
And Easter treat!
I put together a few different printables of this Jelly Bean Prayer for you to download for free. These could be put up in your home or classroom, or you can print the smaller ones and use them as tags for gifts. Fill a clear jar, a clear sandwich baggie, etc, with jelly beans (make sure the correct colors are there), and attach the tag however you would like. These are such sweet little gifts your children can put together to give away.
I hope you can enjoy!
