Holy Week can be a wonderful time to encourage kids to understand the significance of the days before Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection while having fun.
We can turn this sacred period into something productive too through activities that also promote quality family time.
Here, we’ve listed down some fun activities to get the kids involved physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
A productive way to keep them busy this Holy Week vacation is teaching them the basic household chores.This activity gives a long-term effect to kids, bringing the responsibilities as they get older and as they slowly live on their own.
Just a tip: prizes are helpful incentives!
2. Watch religious/spiritual movies
This activity will help kids learn more about Christ’s sacrifice and victory over death. Star Cinema has produced a handful of spiritual/inspirational films which you can watch with your kids, like "Hiling" and "Mila."
3. Make Easter eggs
Make their creative minds work by coloring Easter eggs. While doing so, you can reflect on the beauty of life as a family.
Come Easter Sunday, put prizes inside the egg and hide it somewhere around the house and engage the children to an Easter Egg Hunting fun activity.
4. Honor Good Friday
This is the perfect time to meditate, reflect, and refrain kids from engaging in worldly activities such as social media. Kids can also use this time to learn the words of God by reading the bible.
5. Visita Iglesia
Teach your children the essence of yearly Visita Iglesia where you visit at least seven different churches to recite the Stations Of The Cross.
6. Do spiritual service
Engage your kids in church activities and make use of this vacation to worship as a family. Educate them on what Holy Week is really about and why it’s more than just a vacation.
7. Rejoice the resurrection of the Lord
Make use of the family day by attending your usual Sunday obligation followed by a fun family lunch or dinner date.
