Free lesson download for Holy Week

Yeah, I know. I really should have put this up Friday because you really should have started this yesterday if you want to be on top of celebrating Holy Week according to, you know, the traditional week. Beginning Palm Sunday. Which I totally spaced until about ten last night and I wasn’t about to pull all my sleeping children out of bed just to keep on track.

After all, we have our own traditions to keep and one of the ones we keep best is “Oh yeah. Yesterday was a holiday.”

I hope you enjoy Walking With Jesus His Final Days. Feel free to share the study but please leave my links in tact. Should you be so kind as to share this link, please link to this entry rather than directly to the document.

Free unit for holy week

Anyway, we did this last year and the children really enjoyed using the toys to tell and retell the readings for each day. It is sort of like an Easter version of the Jesse Tree with objects to go along with each day’s reading, except instead of decorating a tree, we filled a container garden with toys that the children then got to play with all day.

And as for me and my house, well, it is Palm Sunday our time. Until lunch. Then I think I’ll let it be Monday and our little project will be on track until we skip a day again.
