Here are the Interactive slides for Holy Week!
I thought I would upload them a couple of days early so they’d be ready for you whenever you visit.
This week our interactive slides look very different from the slides we’ve been engaging with during Lent, but they still hold familiar daily devotions, bible story book readings and a wide variety of multi-sensory activities for all ages to participate in.
There are two separate slides for our Holy Week journey, with four days of activities per slide. The first slide covers Palm Sunday to Wednesday, and the second slide goes from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday.
Begin by clicking on the link posted just below the slide you wish to open. This will pop open a new window with the full slide ready for you interact with. Then, click on the bible found on slide to download the daily devotions for the week. After that, click on the items found in the section reserved for the day of the week you are visiting. There will alway be one or two videoed children’s bible story readings found connected to the books found on the slides. Then there is generally two additional activities each day to explore; crafts, recipes, guided meditations, and music are wonderful additions to each day.
Return to the slides each day for new stories along with new things to do and think about.
I am also attaching a page that outlines the materials you will need for all of the crafts and recipes you’ll find, just in case you want to plan ahead.
I hope this will be a small part of you Holy Week experience as you hear the stories and ultimately sing out Alleluias on Easter morn.
