Children's Holy Day Project is a single-source website for Holy Day information and activities for children with age-appropriate reading, scripture, projects, songs, and coloring pages. We post projects to improve the involvement and understanding of young children, including reading books, which is essential to make people, events, and concepts memorable—and stories captivate our hearts.
Our focus is to build meaningful, lasting Christian family traditions, bringing joy and fulfillment to children’s intellects, imaginations, and spirits.
The mission of ChildrensHolyDayProject.com is to make the Christian feasts easily accessible to children and their families so they become lifelong habits.
Holy Day traditions
Slow down time and bring the family together to meditate on Christ and on the season. Though most of us celebrate Christmas and Easter, the unfamiliar feasts of Advent, Epiphany, Transfiguration, Ascension, and Pentecost are also pregnant with meaning.
The liturgical calendar
Developed by the early church taught the uneducated masses about the faith by bringing ancient events to life each year. Children, like medieval peasants, are not equipped for the complexities of the gospel as a whole, but they can understand seasons, individual stories, and they love celebrating something special. The liturgical year is a simple tradition that can be used to effectively teach children about Christ's story by making it living history.
By celebrating the liturgical year, event by event, season by season, you truly experience the anticipation, sadness, excitement, and shock that the first disciples must have known. The liturgical year is an opportunity to experience the richness of the gospel in real time as a family and as a church.
