Holy Week Tomb Craft

Tomb Craft


There are several versions of this activity online, and this is what we did:

  • We went out into our yard, which was very wet from all the rain, and gathered some dirt (mud) and a few rocks and plants.
  • We used some decorative rocks and dried flowers to decorate as well
  • I put a small glass jar and covered it in the mud.  Then I put wheatberries (seeds) on top of the “tomb.”  These do not take long to grow and will cover the “tomb” in grass by Pascha.
  • We found a large rock to put in front of the “tomb”.
  • Later in the week, we will use an icon of Christ to hang on the cross and then transfer to the tomb.
  • On Pascha, the tomb will be empty!
