If you have been following us for any amount of time, you know how much we love incorporating crafts into our homeschool days. We especially like to include crafts and hands-on activities with the holidays. If you are celebrating Easter or Holy Week in your homeschool you will enjoy these FREE Easter Crafts.
I love how homeschooling allows us the flexibility to be able to shift our focus from time to time during the homeschool year. This is especially helpful during holidays. I enjoy making sweet memories with my children, and also instilling a sense of tradition, and value to holidays that we celebrate.
Do you celebrate Easter or Holy Week in your home? Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday. It is the week before Easter. This is a great time of reflection on Jesus, his life and his journey to the cross, his death and Ressurection. It is such an important time of remembrance.
I like to take this time to slow down and spend time remembering what Jesus did for us on the cross. This is also the perfect time to spend quality time together as a family. There are so many fun activities and crafts that you can do for Easter. I have included some of our family favorites. I have even broken down the ones that are Faith based.

Along with crafts, I like to give my children some extra educational activities to do during holidays and holiday breaks. This works great when there is a lot of house work and cooking that needs to be done. We can tackle big projects and still get some holiday themed learning in.
I like to put a folder together to let them casually pull out of during the week. These tend to be copywork pages, unit studies and writing prompts.
These free copywork printables are perfect to work on during the week leading up to Easter:
Easter Prophecies Copywork – There are more than 300 prophecies in Scripture that point to the suffering, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. Help your children memorize and reflect on 13 of these Scripture passages with this copywork unit.
