This year Easter Sunday happens to fall on General Conference weekend. This happens every few years. I love having the opportunity to listen to the prophet and apostles on Easter and be home together as a family. But I do miss having regular Sunday meetings and Primary. But who says you can’t teach about Easter in Primary the week before Easter or the week after? Or both? In fact, I think anytime is a good time to help children learn about Jesus’ life mission, celebrate His resurrection and get to know Jesus better!
If you plan ahead you can prepare children for the true meaning of Easter by teaching about Palm Sunday and Jesus’ last week on Palm Sunday, March 29. Since this is a 5th Sunday there isn’t a lesson topic in our Sharing Time Outline for Primary. We’ve got you covered! Check out the link below for some Palm Sunday and Easter Sharing Time Lesson ideas with links to visuals that will help you tell the story of Jesus’ last week.
Share this 1 page document with your Primary children’s families so they can follow along at home through the week leading up to Easter and draw closer to Jesus through scripture. This is always a memorable week in our house when we dedicate a little chunk of time each morning or night to study Jesus’ last week. Easter morning comes and the kids are definitely excited for their Easter basket treats but we also burst into song and praise our Lord through music inspired by the scripture verses we’ve been studying. Learning and thinking about Jesus all week makes Easter so much more meaningful for me. Jesus’ ministry, death and resurrection are…well…everything!
