Easter colors scripture chase

I found this cute handout idea on Pinterest and used it with a bag of jelly beans for the ladies I visit teach. Then I realized this would be a simple family home evening for my children. Please note that my children range from age 8-16, so they are able to help look up scriptures.

Now learn about the colors,
and know what each one means...
the story of our Father's love,
told by some jelly beans.

And then every morning,
take a bean so yummy...
something for the soul and
something for the tummy!

Orange is for Heaven so Bright.
(2 Samuel 22:13-14)
Yellow is for God's perfect Light.
(Revelation 21:23)
Black is for the Sins we've made.
(Romans 3:23)
Red is for the Blood He gave.
(Romans 5:8)
White is for our Cleansing from sin.
(Psalm 51:1-2)
Green is for our New Life in Him.
(Colossians 1:10)
Pink is for His Free Gift to share.
(Matthew 28:19-20)
Purple is for the Crowns we'll wear!
(2 Timothy 4:8)

I know this is not the Easter story, but it is a great little scripture chase to learn of our Heavenly Father's love for us and it ties into the Easter story very well! We sat around the table with our scriptures and a bag of yummy jelly beans to eat as we discussed what each color represents.
