This week marks the start of Holy Week for both the Jewish and Christian faith traditions, which means there is plenty to discover and plenty of decorations to be made! Teaching about different faiths and cultural practices from those of your own is an important way to build a spirit of compassion and acceptance in young people. Below are some resources to teach about the Passover story and the Easter story to young children. Learn about both to discuss common themes and important lessons from each Holiday. Also linked below is a fun craft to make Chicks and Lambs from paper plates!
