Easter Smarties Prayer

Thinking about the approach of Easter, I thought I'd post this prayer that we used last year.  The only fiddly bit is making up little packets so that each child has one smartie of each colour.  The children loved it, but make sure the younger ones remember to eat the colours as you say them or they'll have nothing left within 5 seconds!

Say each line and eat a Smartie of the appropriate colour:

Pink for the people who came and praised,
Green for the palm leaves that they raised;
Purple for the robe that Jesus wore,
Brown for the cross that Jesus bore;
Red for the blood that Jesus shed,
Blue for the tears when he was dead;
orange for the stone that was rolled away,
Yellow for joy- He's alive today!

  1. Bracelets could be made with the same sort of idea, substituting beads for smarties. Only don't eat them lol.
