Featured bloggers for the Easter Kit from Persnickety Prints

As all of you know, we at Sugardoodle have been trying to spread the beauty of the mormon.org Easter video this season. We reached out to six amazingly talented women to create a series of free printable Easter kits to support the campaign.

Over the past few weeks some of our favorite bloggers have been posting about the kits and their own Christ-centered family traditions. There were tons to choose from but we wanted to introduce you to a few of our favorite posts from each kit. We hope you click over, read their posts, comment and get inspired to bring more meaning to your family’s Easter.

#Hallelujah Day 7 Easter Advent Kit for Holy Week

Day 7 Stand All Amazed-01

All photos by Amy Little

Today’s mini devotional is about Jesus standing trial before Caiaphas & Pilate.  There are scriptures, videos and the discussion as the entire week follows this structure.  The family activity if you choose to do it is a clay salt dough tomb with instructions listed below.  In the kit notes it refers to a recipe card, which isn’t included.  Sorry this was a typo.  But below lists the recipe I used with a few pictures to illustrate the steps.

Salt Dough Recipe:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
3/4 cup warm water
a few drops of black food coloring (gives stone color)

Mix all ingredients until smooth.

Instructions:

  1. Place a glass oven-proof bowl (Pyrex) upside down on a cookie sheet.
  2. Spray it with non-stick spray.
  3. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness.
  4. Carefully place the rolled dough over the bowl to make a tomb.
  5. Cut away a door.
  6. Reshape the door as more of a rounded rock.
  7. Lay the rock door on the pan like a cookie.
  8. Bake in a warm oven at lowest setting. I did 100 degrees and baked it for 5-7 hours. Be sure to watch it, every oven is different.
  9. When it’s dry and cool, remove the tomb from the bowl.

You could also consider creating a mini empty tomb garden in a small pot or vessel using small plants, a bonsai tree, small rocks, tiny flowers, moss, grass, soil and a small piece of natural gauze inside the tomb to represent the cloth they wrapped the Savior’s body left in the tomb.  To create the open tomb part, I used a small plastic pot from the nursery and laid it on it’s side, then added the moss over it to create the hill of the tomb.   Day 7 Empty tomb garden-01 Day 7 Empty Tomb Garden square-01 Day 7 Empty Tomb Garden palm-01
