Planting seeds is something else you can do. A seed buried in the ground can grow into something alive and wonderful, a picture of Jesus being buried and rising to new life again. Children will love this simple craft.

DIRECTIONS

1. Take an empty egg shell.

2. Wash it inside and out.

3. Paint a face on the outside.

4. Put some wet cotton wool (cotton balls) inside and sprinkle on some mustard and cress (or dill) seeds.

5. Water each day.
