Jelly Beans are a huge part of Easter, but have you considered the colors might have a meaning? The Jelly Bean Prayer tells us what each color represents in a fun way. This is a great activity to work on with the kids to teach them the meaning of Easter and learn colors. Or you can make the jar beforehand for an Easter surprise and leave the coloring sheet for them in their basket!
I filled a jelly jar with jelly beans and layered them according to the prayer. You can add fabric or ribbons to the top of the jar to be more decorative if you like!
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 our new tomorrow.
I also made a coloring sheet that has the prayer and a jelly bean they can color in with the color corresponding to the line in the prayer. Or you can find a jelly bean and place it on the correct spot!
