Faith-Based Homeschool Easter Guides

For those who hold to the Christian faith, Easter is a very important holiday. Of course, on this day, Christians celebrate Jesus’s resurrection from the dead. So, if your family celebrates and you’re looking to add special activities to your homeschool or family devotion time, we’veEaster Activities for High School Students gathered some different guides to make incorporating these easier for you.

As the definition of “Christian” is likely to change depending on the person you ask, many Christians – or Christ followers – will use different resources based on their beliefs. Because of that, we’ve gathered a few denomination-specific Holy Week guides. So, if you are Reformed (no C2Vs), Catholic, or LDS, we hope these guides will be helpful in your homeschool.

If you’re looking for historical activities to do with your children that will drive home the point of all that took place between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, these Easter week activities will do just that. This website is geared toward children’s church ministries, but these activities can easily be adapted for your homeschool.
