Holy Week Craft Group by OCN

Daily at 3:30 pm EST, April 25-May 1

Presvytera Mallory Kasapakis and Alyssa Kyritsis of the Orthodox Christian Network will be using our material to offer a LIVE online crafting session every day of the Holy Week.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 

  • Each session will last for thirty minutes.
  • Advance registration is required.  
  • Materials will not be provided. Purchasing materials in advance is recommended; the supply list can be found in the printable packet below.
  • Crafts are suitable for most children, but adult supervision and assistance will be required as these sessions are entirely virtual. 

To see the crafts that will be presented, please scroll down. For more information and to sign up, click on the button below.

Note: If you own our Holy Week Craft Kit, you can use it at the craft sessions.


PRINTABLE PACKET

Terms of use

Please note: The copyright of our work belongs solely to Orthodox Pebbles. We are offering our material to the public to be used as a whole, and only for classroom and personal use. This means we do not allow for users to break our material up into individual parts (images or text), or to copy images or text from our website, and use those parts in their own creations – analog, digital, or online – even if these creations are only meant to be used for teaching. For example, a user is not permitted to include our material in any way in their own slideshows, worksheets or videos (local or in the “cloud”), even if they mention us as the source. If you are interested in creating a specific teaching activity with our material, please contact us – we may be able to create it instead, for the benefit of the whole Orthodox community.

Additionally, we love seeing photos on social media of our material being used; however, if you want to showcase our resources differently in a website, newsletter, blog or social media post, please contact us first.

Finally, we kindly ask that you do not directly share the material you download from our website with others. Please point them to our website instead, so they can download it from here.

Thank you for being fair and respectful of our work!
