Here's a fun idea from member Heather Fogle: LAST SUPPER PEEP ART
This idea was suggested during the pandemic when families were invited to read the Holy Week story and create and share photos of their "Peep Art" depicting key scenes for certain parts of the Holy Week story. (It was suggested to NOT "peep" the crucifixion, and rather, to draw sad faces on the peeps.) Encourage your families to share their pictures on social media and tag your church as well as include a hashtag such as #LastSupperPeepArt.
For the Empty Tomb, give families this tasty and popular recipe idea for wrapping marshmallows with crescent roll dough.
