Holy Week Resources for Families with Children

Holy Week in a box uses simple objects tucked into a small box, along with scripture, to tell the story of Holy Week. Each item in the box is a symbol, representing a piece of the gospel narrative: from Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, through the Last Supper, betrayal, burial, and finally the empty tomb on Easter morning. Find instructions on how to make your own box in the link above.

Check out the Sparkhouse Facebook and Instagram page for a daily activity for families from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. It might be a game or a craft with simple supplies families have or could easily modify.
