50 Ways to Celebrate the 50 Days of Easter!

 

I LOVE the Easter Season- all 50 days of it! The truth of the Resurrection is real! Christ is risen from the dead, has triumphed over the grave, and has saved us from our sin! And that news is worth sharing. After such a warm response to the need of the Holy Week at Home Family Retreat over the past two years, I wanted to provide something to help you keep the momentum going in your own home or a resource easily shared with your classroom or parish. This set of 50 ideas is updated for 2021 with corrected dates and some new resources, including a free printable of my Paschal Lamb carving


As with Holy Week resources, the internet has blessed us with SO many options for celebrating. You can carry on your favorite traditions and do some research to add in new ones. This 50 Ways in 50 Days guide is intended to give you a starting point as well as to make it easy to share those ideas with others who might not know where (or have the time, etc.) to begin.

Click here to download a seven page pdf file. The pdf contains 50 little thumbnails that are all links to FREE Easter related resources, theoretically one for each day of the Season. They are loosely arranged from Easter to Pentecost, with special Feast Days (Divine Mercy, Ascension, Saints, etc.) labeled in between.


The resources are intended to reach a wide variety of ages, while of course some are meant for older kids and some for younger, hopefully families can find ways to make them work for most K-8th kids. The links lead to different ideas for art, coloring pages, prayer, food, videos, music, and more. And again, they are all free! (Here's what one sample page looks like)

Many of the ideas come from my blog, just organized in a different way. But I also have some favorite resources from many other parents, teachers, creators, and small business owners. Once you get to their sites, I hope you check out all they have to offer.

Please feel free to take this pdf and email it directly to anyone you think can use it. You are welcome to include it in a school/parish newsletter or include a link to it on your website. I designed it this way for exactly that purpose- hopefully it is easy to get in the hands of your family and the families you know and work with, helping all of us have a happier and holier Easter.

I pray that we all experience the true joy of the Resurrection and look forward to dwelling richly in the hope of Easter all season long!
