  • Crumbled graham crackers in resealable baggies and chocolate-covered raisins represent the ground and rocks where Jesus knelt. Pour the “sand” onto the paper plate and scatter “rocks.”
  • Gummy worms represent the disciples’ temptation to fall asleep.
  • Marshmallows represent the soft places where the disciples rested their heads and slept.
  • Use pretzel sticks to represent the swords and clubs the men carried who came to arrest Jesus.
