A Creative 8 Day Journey from Palm Sunday to Resurrection Sunday
After doing a Christmas advent countdown with Elia last year, I knew I wanted to put a more intentional effort into the other important holidays throughout the year, especially Easter.
During advent, she learned so many things about the true meaning of Christmas and celebrating the birth of Jesus. That’s when I decided on an Easter countdown with daily reading and activities. While preparing this to use at home, I thought it would be something helpful to share with you.
The Easter Adventure includes a fun egg hunt printable, with daily scripture reading, craft suggestions, activities, and a memory verse to learn during the week.
