Share this simple but meaningful family devotion with the families in your ministry to help them learn, remember, and celebrate the events of Jesus’ last week on Earth. The printable half-page, double-sided cards invite families to explore the events of Holy Week by pondering, praying, and playing together as a family. There are 9 cards total: 1 title/instructions card + 1 for each day from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
Each day, families will 1) ponder the events of the specific day, 2) pray about them, and then 3) play a simple activity to interact with the Biblical account in a hands-on way. These devotions are simple enough for busy families to complete but deep enough to help families connect with our Savior in a meaningful way.
Each day’s accompanying picture also offers a visual reminder about the day’s devotion or events. We used real pictures (not cartoons or graphics) because we want kids to know these events actually happened. They were real. And so is Jesus.
Leaders print the cards, cut them, and distribute them to families (no need to include other supplies). Some activities require common household items, like a coin, a red marker, a stick, etc. that families can easily find at home.
