Jelly Bean Story sweetly shares the meaning of Easter

It's very easy to share the Easter Jelly Bean Story with a jar of jelly beans.  Just get a nice jar with a lid, fill with jelly beans in the appropriate colors, print the two images below, glue them back to back with a light dab of glue, punch a small hole, and tie the tag with a pretty ribbon.

A sweet way to share the meaning of Easter.
The person you give it to will be nicely surprised and will think of you each time they reach in for a sweet treat.  You will be able to share your faith and the meaning of Easter.

Here's a list of the supplies you will need:
  • Jar or other decorative container
  • Jelly beans in orange, yellow, black, red, white, green, pink and purple
  • Scissors or X-Acto knife (mat optional - be careful of not damaging the surface you are working on)
  • Printer (or do it the creative way, by handwriting and decorating the tag yourself)
  • Paper
  • Glue or double-sided tape
  • Hole punch
  • Decorative ribbon

Print these two images to add to your Easter gift.
Lightly glue the two images back to back.

  3. That is just too cool. Believe it or not I've never heard that one, but I will be passing it down to my grandchildren who probably already heard it. ~hehe~ I'm your latest follower. Nice to meet you.

  4. Very neat idea! Shh, don't tell anyone, but I don't actually like jelly beans. Reeses cup eggs, on the other hand...

  5. Can I download the poem to print? Where do I click to download? Thanks, I want to use this as a part of my children's sermon at church tomorrow. Thanks.

  6. Pam: Yes, just right click on the pictures, and "save image as". Easy.

    Happy Easter to all!
