Deadline to order: Friday, March 5th!
Easter-in-a-Basket will hold 8 mini-lessons, one for each day from Palm Sunday to Easter. These Holy Week activities will be low stress for busy folks, encourage family and community connection, and help you prepare for Easter! Over the course of the week, you will be creating your own Easter basket to help you celebrate Christ’s resurrection!
With another year of unique challenges ahead of us, Easter-in-a-Basket offers a meaningful and fun Holy Week and Easter experience even while we’re unable to gather together at churches and with extended families. Easter-in-a-Basket provides an opportunity to connect the Easter story at the roots of our faith with the times we’re living in now.
WHAT’S IN EASTER-IN-A-BASKET?
Each Easter-in-a-Basket box will include a guidebook, as well as the supplies needed for each activity -and some fun Kintail swag too! Also included are step-by-step instructions and materials to make your very own Easter basket!
There are 8 sections of activities and supplies inside – one for each day starting on Palm Sunday and ending with Easter. Each section will include a mini lesson with a scripture story, reflection questions, and a prayer. In addition, every day will have a few activities that connect to the scripture and theme, such as games, recipes, crafts, service activities, and Holy Week traditions from around the world!
You’ll also get to make your own Easter basket step-by-step throughout the week. All the included activities are designed to be easily woven into your busy days, while creating a way to connect with your faith in the time leading up to Easter.
(Note that the supplies in the box will provide for one of each activity – for example, there will be materials to make one cross craft – so you might want to order a box for each sibling!)
WHO SHOULD RECEIVE AN EASTER-IN-A-BASKET?
Easter-in-a-Basket is designed to be intergenerational. Activities are appropriate for families with children or youth, and many activities would work well when done together as a family. However, this is also a great option for folks without children or those living on their own – the box is also meant for individuals, and can serve as a comfort for those celebrating Easter alone. Scripture reflection questions will apply to all ages, some relatable even for young children and others offering deeper reflection for mature disciples.
Easter-in-a-Basket would be great for anyone who wants to experience Holy Week in a new way. Easter-in-a-Basket could be great for Sunday School classes who can’t meet in person, youth ready to dive deeper, or seniors living in assisted living facilities. Consider getting one for yourself or your family, or gifting one to someone who could use it!
*Note: young children or those who have challenges with fine motor skills may need extra assistance with crafts and basket-weaving.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Recognizing that organizations have varying financial resources, Kintail is offering a voluntary three-tier fee program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for you! All Easter-in-a-Basket boxes will include the same contents no matter what tier you choose. As the camp is making its way through a pandemic, know that higher tier pricing goes further to support the greater ministry of Camp Kintail. The costs PER BOX are as follows:
Tier I is a subsidized rate that does not reflect the full cost of an Easter-in-a-Basket. Tier II is a partially subsidized rate for those who are able to pay a little more. Tier III more closely reflects the actual cost of Easter-in-a-Basket, including staffing and production. The proceeds from this program help sustain the ministries of Camp Kintail.
There is an option for pick-up at Camp Kintail (no additional fee), whereas an additional charge of $9.00+HST will be added for shipping and handling PER BOX. A tier 1 box with shipping comes to a total of $39.17.
