Holy Week | Toddlers and preschoolers

 
The five day mini series exploring holy week is one of my favourite traditions and I’ve loved introducing it to my toddler. However, many of the activities are not so toddler friendly so last year I went exploring practical alternatives. I kept with the same format, each day a small activity is linked to an event from the days leading up to Easter. Generally speaking, the days get more involved as you go.
 
As before, the days all have individual cards but these are modified for younger ears. Print them out (click on the image to get to the printout) and hang them up either as a ladder or string to show each day passing. The daily activity can take as little as 5 minutes but could easily be built upon if needed.

This is also now supported by a full pack of printable activities. The pack is hosted at my sister site MissionMummy.com and can be found by clicking on the picture.

Lent Walk

 

This is a special Lent theme solo post.

Lent is the lead up to Easter. It lasts for 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday (Sundays are not included in the tally) and represents the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert. To follow Lent is very much a personal choice.

While advent is about preparing our minds with the big story starting from the beginning and leading up to Jesus, Lent is about preparing out hearts to engage with the Jesus that we see in holy week, the confusing God-man, the one who invited us into a radical new way of loving, the one who really did take up his own cross and walk, leading the way for us to do likewise.

It’s not a new idea, but sadly my purse strings didn’t stretch for the beautiful wooden ones.
NOTE, the pictures are of my original.

Holy Week | Review

 

Holy Week | Review This is the review of the five day mini series exploring holy week. Each day a small activity was linked to an event from the days leading up to Easter.
 

Review – The five days and how we can use them.


 
The five days journeying to the cross is a resource that can be used in a wide range of ways. Each days activities need almost no preparation and can be resourced easily.

At the end of the short activity there is a small card that could be collected to form a ladder or garland. These are available by clicking on the image to the right.

The 5 days could be used as a whole teaching session, as interactive parts to an Easter labyrinth, with children in a Sunday or midweek group, with seekers, or with families.

The 5 days could be used individually as a 5 minute family devotion, as an activity for the children during the holy week services, or as an unsupervised table in an open church building.

Holy Week | Review


Easter and Christmas are the two central celebrations of our faith, understanding their meaning is central to understanding Christianity.
That God came and made himself man, that he lived a blameless life, that he was wrongly put to death, that through his death the price was paid for our salvation, and that he defeated death on the third day are all concepts that need to be taught.
