A Celebration of Holy Week: 8 Days to Reflect on Jesus Devotional for Kids

Children will experience the joy and wonder of Holy Week through eight days of engaging activities and Scripture reading with this kids devotional for ages 8-12


Help kids discover the significance of Holy Week by knowing the events that led up to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. For 8 days beginning with Palm Sunday and ending on Easter Sunday, kids will complete a scripture reading and a simple daily activity that will help them explore the profound love of God and the transformative power of faith.

Each day offers new opportunities for children to engage with the story of Jesus from His triumphant entry into Jerusalem to the Last Supper and ultimately His sacrifice on the cross. Through interactive and thought-provoking activities, children will deepen their understanding of Jesus’s teachings and the significance of His mission.

Children will learn, grow, and become more like Jesus with each passing day.

The devotional has 3 versions: 1 version with daily NKJV scriptures included in the printable, 1 version with daily scripture references for use with any version of the Bible, and 1 version with the list of Holy Week Scripture references at the beginning but no specific daily readings. Choose the one that best fits your context.
