Celebrate Easter All Week By Learning About The Last Week of Christ's Life

Ever since my oldest was about 3 years old we have celebrated Easter all week leading up to Easter Sunday. This helps us celebrate the Easter season {much like the Christmas season} rather just Easter on one day. It also helps to keep the appropriate focus on Jesus Christ and His Atonement and Resurrection.
“There would be no Christmas if there had not been Easter. The baby Jesus of Bethlehem would be but another baby without the redeeming Christ of Gethsemane and Calvary, and the triumphant fact of the Resurrection.” Gordon B. Hinckley

Easter All Week Chart

Each child has this little chart to fill out as the week progresses. There are scriptures to be read every day. While no one is certain exactly which day each event occurred, these are the traditionally held beliefs according to the Gospel of Mark. To download the chart and pictures click on the link below.

Celebrate Easter All Week - The Last Week of Christ's Life

Here are some additional activities to do each day with your family. The activities will be updated as I finish them with my own children. {Monday's and Saturday's are still in the works} The bible videos were all recently released at The Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos. They were created to inspire and help strengthen faith in Jesus Christ. Any words that are spoken are quoted directly from the King James version of the Bible.

Craft: Sugar Cube Temples
Trace your child's body on butcher paper. Let them cut out pictures of good things for their body from magazines and glue them on their body's outline. Pictures could include food to eat, exercise, bathing, reading, education, etc.
