Holy Week activities for Orthodox families with young children.
Only a few more days till Holy Week begins!
I can’t believe how Lent just flew by like that. In a few days, we will be celebrating Palm Sunday and then partaking in Holy Week.
Covid disrupted our traditional observance of Holy Week last year. Sadly, in Canada, we will once again be “online” rather than at church during the most solemn and spiritually nourishing weeks of the year. However, I try to focus on the positive: technology is helping turn our living room into a micro Church, and we are still able to follow along with the chants, readings, and prayers. And we can also use the complied Holy Week activities for young children.
Holy Week for children
Thanks to the ingenious ideas of very brilliantly creative souls, along with the liturgical rites, we can also leverage activities prepared for children to help immerse them in the spirit of Holy Week.
I have scoured the internet to find fantastic, free, doable, entertaining, and spiritually beneficial activities, coloring pages, memory games, word puzzles, and resources to help our children to follow along Holy Week.
* Only two resources need to be purchased, but they are affordable and adorable.
Holy Week Activities for Orthodox families with young children
I compiled the results of my internet hunting expedition in the following presentation for ease of usage. Each slide contains a picture to illustrate the content and the link to the site.
I have also included an incredible resource:
A Pascha booklet for children that explains what happens during each day of Holy Week with the accompanying explanations, prayers, and meditations.
The slides begin with activities/resources for the whole week and end with a few that are specific to certain days of Holy Week and then Easter Sunday.
I wish you and your families a wonderful time partaking in these activities, and I pray that Holy Week, 2022, is back as the ones we took for granted.
