Jelly Bean Poem

Several years ago, someone gave me some jelly beans with a Jelly Bean Poem.

Wednesday night I took some plastic eggs, jelly beans, and poems to church for the children to stuff their eggs. It was an easy and memorable activity.

Please note: Not all jelly bean packages have all of these colors. You should compare the color list before purchasing your jelly beans.

Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for His hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
An egg full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
Is a prayer, a promise, a loved one's treat!
