The Perfect Easter Favor

It’s Live a Little Monday – and time for a weekly dose of simple ways to celebrate life! Feel free to join in and add your own ideas for enjoying life in simple ways.  Post them in the comments below or link a blog post of your own (directions below).

Here’s one simple way we are ‘living a little‘ and enjoying this Easter . . .

Remember and celebrate what Easter is all about and gift your guests a symbolic favor. The Sand Dollar is ideal! Print this poem on pretty paper and attach it to the sand dollar with a delicate ribbon.

You can find Sand dollars in most craft stores. If not, print the poem on pretty paper from this link (sand dollar poem) it contains a picture of a sand dollar with the poem. Here is another link you can use to print out Sand dollar coloring pages for the kids: ColoringPage. Invite the children at your Easter celebration to create colorful Sand dollar art!

The Sand dollar

Here’s a pretty little legend

That I would like to tell

Of the birth and death of Jesus

Found in this lowly shell

If you examine closely,

You’ll see that you find here

Four nail holes and a fifth one

Made by a Roman’s Spear.

On one side the Easter Lily,

Its center is the star

That appeared unto the shepherds

And led them from afar.

The Christmas poinsettia

Etched on the other side

Reminds us of His birthday

Our Happy Christmastide.

Now break the centre open

And here you will release

The five white doves awaiting

To spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol,

Christ left for you and me

To help us spread his Gospel

Through all eternity.

    This is a great idea for Easter. I have never heard the Sand Dollar used at Easter. And if you can not find them using the cut out with the Legend is great. The Bunny napkins are so cute. Love your ideas!
