Explaining Easter to your child using the Jelly Bean Poem

Green is for the branches they waved
while shouting Hosanna, unashamed 

Orange is for the meal they shared
before Jesus revealed what lay ahead
Blue is how His disciples felt
when Jesus stood innocent as an unfair sentence was dealt
Black stands for your sins and mine
the reason why God sent His Only Son to die 

Red is for the Blood Jesus shed
on the Cross of Calvary, for you, His beloved.

White is for the linen that lay
after Jesus arose that glorious Resurrection day. 

Yellow represents that heavenly home
with streets of gold, that God’s children can roam. 

Purple celebrates the King of kings is alive

the hope of Resurrection never dies.

It’s Easter time, and that means it’s time to reflect on the resurrection story of Jesus Christ. It is a message that has resonated with people for centuries, and will continue to do so for years to come. It is the most powerful message as it is the message of salvation.

The message that believing in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, will give you eternal salvation. If you believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be saved. As we celebrate Easter this year, let’s take a moment to reflect on the powerful meaning behind this story.

The Easter Story for Kids

The Easter story begins with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This was a tragic event, but it was also one that had been foretold by prophets for centuries. Christ’s death was not the end of the story though. Three days later he rose from the dead, proving once and for all that he is the Son of God.

This act of love and sacrifice is what makes Easter such a special holiday. It is a time to remember that no matter how dark things may seem, there is always hope. Christ’s resurrection is a reminder of that.

Easter is also a time to reflect on our own lives. Just as Christ sacrificed himself for our sake, we should be willing to sacrifice for others. We should also remember that we are never alone. Christ is always with us, even in our darkest moments. He is the light that guides us through the darkness.

This Easter, let us all take a moment to reflect on the powerful message of hope that is at the heart of the Easter story. Let us remember that no matter what life throws our way, we can always find hope in Christ. Happy Easter, He is Risen!
