Celebrating Holy Week with Toddlers and Preschoolers: Day 1, Palm Sunday

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

My kids are on “Spring Break” this week from their Mother’s Day Out program. The public schools are out, too, but my husband’s private school was on break two weeks ago.

What does that mean for us? Playgrounds and museums are going to be uber-crowded, and I will be home alone with my kids all week.

I have a difficult time functioning without a plan; I am not the kind of mom who can put crafts together on the fly, usually. So here I am outlining my plans to celebrate Holy Week with my kiddos (a 3.5-year-old and a 15-month-old). Libbie (3) and I may do a lot of this while David is asleep, honestly, because he is just not old enough to do crafts yet. I will do my best to have him listen to storytime!

    • You’re right, it’s not in there! I must not have checked when I made this plan. You might try a different storybook Bible; there is “Parade for a King” in I AM, which is a great story Bible I really like.
