Last week I was over at Jedi Craft Girl participating in the 14-day Walk with Christ. Amanda has 14 activities & topics to do with your family leading up until Easter. I was so happy to be participating in this, & I think it’s a great idea to do with your family so you all can focus on the real meaning of Easter. Amanda asked me to take day 4~ faith!
Faith is one the very first things you have to have as you grow your testimony of the Savior! One of my favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon is Alma 32. In that chapter Alma compares faith to a little seed. If we plant the seed of faith in our hearts & nurture it with making good choices, attending church, praying, reading our scriptures & so on then it will grow & become stronger.
I found these little Grow Kits in the dollar section at Target! Yay! I knew they would be perfect for this project. They had all different kinds from flowers to sunflowers to strawberries to tomatoes. I bought a different one for each of my kiddos. Inside it has a little pot, planting medium & of course, seeds. 🙂
First each kiddo decorated their pot with paint markers.
Then we did the fun part! ha! You add warm water to the growing medium, & it gets bigger! My kiddos thought that was so cool.
Then we opened the seed packets. Look how tiny these poppy seeds are!
Then we planted the seeds in the dirt!
Now we have to care for our seed & make sure they can grow!
As we planted our seeds & as we care for our seeds & watch them grow we will keep talking about how we have to do the same thing with our faith! If we don’t nourish it, our faith won’t grow!
Here’s a printable to go along with this activity. (I love this Primary song!)
Update: Since I posted over at Amanda’s our seeds have sprouted! 🙂
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
