Five FREE Ways to Celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus During Passion Week!

Passion Week (the week starting with Palm Sunday and ending with Easter/Resurrection Sunday) is an amazing time to focus on the Resurrection of Jesus while incorporating intellectual and spiritual activities to teach our children to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Here are five free activities that you can incorporate into your homeschooling curriculum to make this special time even more meaningful:

1. **Bible Study** Dive deep into the story of Easter by reading and discussing the accounts of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection in the Gospels. Encourage your children to ask questions, share their thoughts, and reflect on the significance of Christ’s Resurrection. This lap book is a fun and educational activity for the kids to give them hands on learning about the resurrection!

2. **Art & Crafts Projects** Get creative with Easter-themed crafts like making resurrection eggs, creating cross collages, or painting scenes from the Easter story. These hands-on activities are a great place to start and help children engage with the resurrection story in a fun and interactive way.

3. **Nature Walk** Take a nature walk with your children and use it as an opportunity to talk about new life and growth symbolizing Jesus’ resurrection. Look for signs of spring such as blooming flowers, chirping birds, or budding trees to connect with the theme of renewal.

4. **Easter Egg Hunt** Organize an Easter egg hunt in your backyard or living room for some festive fun. Hide eggs filled with small prizes or meaningful messages related to the resurrection story to add a spiritual element to this traditional activity. Feel free to throw in some scriptures such as John 11:26-27 in some of the eggs!

5. **Family Devotional Time** Set aside dedicated time each day during Passion Week for family devotions focused on Jesus’ journey from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Use resources like devotionals, videos, or music to guide your discussions and prayers as you prepare your hearts for Easter. This guide here can help you get started on family devotions. REMEMBER: don’t stress or worry about “getting through” everything you want to get to during a family devotion. Sometimes just getting together, even if you don’t get to the Bible lesson, is enough. 🙂

BONUS: The Case for Christ for Kids by Lee Strobel is a great way to introduce your kids to the historic case for Christ’s Resurrection and a wonderful thing to read during Passion Week! (or any time)

By incorporating these free activities into your homeschooling routine, you can create lasting memories and deepen your family’s understanding of the true meaning behind the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection during Passion Week.
