These simple crafts will engage children around each day of Holy Week and prepare them for a joyful Pascha at home. Advance registration is required.
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR PARTICIPATION:

- Crafts are suitable for most children, but adult supervision and assistance will be required as these sessions are entirely virtual.
Orthodox Pebbles provides creative resources to familiarize children with our Church, its theology, services, customs and traditions, within an environment of Christian fellowship and community. Every lesson is based on a solid knowledge of our faith and seeks to transmit knowledge in an engaging, interactive and fun way.
Palm Sunday – children create palm fronds to celebrate the triumphant entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem.
Holy Monday – make your own paper oil lamp and learn about the Parable of the Ten Virgins. (Bonus: with adult supervision, try making your own real natural oil lamb using the additional craft guide at Orthodox Pebbles.)
Holy Tuesday – learn about the woman who anointed Christ with myrrh and create your own DIY “perfume” using household ingredients
Holy Wednesday – create a scene of the Mystical Supper featuring Christ and the apostles
Holy Thursday – decorate a printed icon of the Holy Passion with a frame of paper flowers
Holy Friday – make a lantern with real or artificial flame for the Holy Friday service
