7 Ways to Celebrate Holy Week
Celebrate Bunny Day and Resurrection Day Separately
Separate the meaningful events from the secular celebrations. Celebrate Bunny Day with Easter Baskets, egg hunts, and commercialized fun on Saturday. On Sunday, take time to worship in church, put on your nice Easter attire, and focus on the meaningful parts.
Take the picture! Keep previous holiday photos out in a little separate album as a conversation piece/table décorSet . It can be so fun to recreate the same picture year after year.
Holy Week Easter Set
The Easter nativity set is the perfect flexible, simple family tradition that doubles as decor. This modern nativity set includes a tomb, tree, cross, redeemed Jesus, angel, and Mary, making it a beautiful religious Easter decor for your home. The set also includes cards with scriptures, questions to ponder, video links, and prompts to use during the holiday season, making it a great way to turn setting up this nativity scene into a cherished family tradition. Aubrey gets her set from Rusted Orange Craftworks Co, and they’re offering a discount code for Studio 5 Viewers. Use code STUDIO5 for $ off!
Resurrection rolls are a great hands-on activity to help connect kids with the meaning of Easter. The marshmallow inside is like Jesus being buried in the tomb but then on the 3rd day the tomb was empty!
Resurrection Eggs – Easter Week Story and Activity Kit
Each Easter egg has a symbol inside that corresponds with religious Easter messages to teach your family about the Easter story. Story cards teach the events and meaning of Easter and double as a holiday display.
Books that help transition from bunny day to celebrate the meaningful event; perfect to share the evening following bunny day.
Picnic outside or inside. Have everyone sit on the ground and graze with food items that may have been present in Jesus’ Day.
