Holy Week Activities and Crafts

As we all are getting ready to prepare for Holy Week and Pascha in a totally new and different way, we wanted to provide you all with a bunch of activities, resources and crafts that you all could do while at home with your children.

Before we mention the Holy Week activities and craft Ideas, please note that you don’t need to feel obligated to do any of these activities or crafts with your children. Praying is definitely the best activity anyone could be doing with their children during Holy Week!!  Also, we would like to add, if you already have your own activities put together for your children for Holy Week, great!!  Feel free to share with us what you are doing at home with your children and we can add it to our list.

1. Holy Week Craft Ideas.pdf -There are 3 pages on this document that shows activities and crafts for each day of Holy Week

2. Holy Week Summary.pdf-Great Resource to read and talk to your children about

3. JourneyToPascha.pdf-This one has been around for a bit and it’s great
