The Easter: A Blossoming Celebration is a downloadable Easter-themed prayer experience and activity. In this combination prayer service and art activity, young people in the intermediate grades are invited to joyfully and prayerfully celebrate the new life in Jesus Christ during the Easter season. It is based on the Scripture passage in which the risen Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene, as well as beautiful imagery from the Book of Isaiah and Song of Songs.
During the season of Easter, the Church sings the song of “Alleluia,” meaning “Praise God!” Teach Catholic children the meaning of the word Alleluia as they compose a song to celebrate Easter. Catechists and parents may want to encourage kids to use a familiar melody for their original lyrics. They also may want to record children performing their songs and compile a classroom or family album to enjoy and share! Download the Alleluia Easter Activity now!
Easter Cross Craft Activity The Easter season is a sacred time in which Catholic families can rejoice over the new life we have in Christ. Download a primary activity in which children make an Easter cross. Place the Easter cross in the family prayer space or other prominent place during the 50 days of Easter.
Easter Table Prayer Card One of the special ways we celebrate Easter is by sharing a meal. Invite children to design a table prayer card to be shared during an Easter meal with family and friends. This printable prayer card highlights the signs of new life that we experience during Easter and our new life in Jesus Christ. After it is decorated, it can be used on Easter Sunday or before meals shared during the Easter season.
