He is Risen Planter

This fun and easy Easter project was perfect for my girls!

We started with a scavenger hunt where the girls gathers twigs, pebbles, and dirt. Granted in a normal Minnesota winter this would be a painfully difficult venture, in this particular year the odd weather afforded us a bit more opportunity. We bought our ceramic tray and pot at Goodwill for $1 each and had a glue gun and glue sticks at home. You may also want to include twine to tie your crosses, however, I used some weeping willow branches the girls collected and it worked great! The last things you’ll need are some dirt, and grass seed. You can look at the pictures below for how we put it together, but you’ll have to tune in later for our finished project as our grass has just begun to rise up through the dirt!

Final pictures to follow!

After checking every few minutes and then hours, I finally gave into the fact that grass takes a while to grow and am now patiently waiting To take my final picture while enjoying each individual blade as it pops through to say hello!
