A Gentle + Classical Easter is a 2 unit, 2-week Christ-focused Easter celebration for children 2-8 years. In this unit study, we spend the two weeks leading up to Easter reading the TRUE story of Easter (at an age-appropriate level) through brilliant picture books. We learn simply catechisms about Christ, memorize scripture, explore and observe nature, enjoy simple activities and crafts, work on motor skills, play with storyboards, and go on scavenger hunts!
Who is it for?
This unit study was designed with all of your children under age 8 in mind. There are two book-level options to accommodate your youngest listeners alongside those with a little more patience.

I bought digital previously. How do I get the updated files OR can I get a discount to upgrade to print?
You can log in at Shopgentleclassical.com, find your original purchase email and click that link, or use THIS LINK to access all previous purchases. The NEW digital files will be found there where the old ones were. We are not offering a coupon code for those who previously purchased digital. Sorry! (If you have not created a ShopGentleClassical.com account, we highly encourage it. You can click "CREATE ACCOUNT" on the page linked above, then enter the email you've used for all your orders. They'll automatically be included into your account, unless you used different emails. You can download them directly from your account. We cannot merge multiple emails into one account. If you've used multiple emails for accounts, you'll have to have multiple accounts. Sorry!)
What denomination is this from?
It's just plain Jane, orthodox Christianity. Look at our sample images in the shop listing to see an example of a catechism. They're super basic.
Do you promote the Easter bunny in this product?
We mention him (hop like a bunny) and have Resurrection Eggs which obviously have the egg connection. We have coloring pages and lacing pages connected to eggs as well. But we do not promote or utilize books that promote the Easter bunny customs. You can disregard those printables if you don't want any hint of Easter bunny in your studies.
How do I know which books or supplies I need before purchasing?
Please click BOOK LIST + SUPPLY LIST in the shop listing to access those.
If I buy the supply kit and curriculum and books, this is expensive, and I can't afford it.
I'm sorry you're feeling that way! All holiday unit studies are absolutely optional and you can pass on this unit study completely. You can also buy digital, print at home with an affordable ink option like the Epson Ecotank, and use what you have on hand for supplies. Also, please use YouTube, your library, and secondhand books rather than buying everything new off of Amazon. ❤️
I have last year's digital study. What has changed in the files?
- It's organized as a two-unit, 10-day study instead of just 10 days.
- I have specific instructions and scripture for the Resurrection Eggs instead of just a link.
- I've simplified it and provided a detailed, at-a-glance schedule for each week.
- I've added a 2022 calendar to show when we would ideally begin the unit study (April 4th).
Will you have more physical delivery available after the Presale?
I won't. I plan to order exactly what you guys order. I ordered extra Christmas and still have several left. We don't have space for extra stock ❤️.
