Lenten Sacrifice Cross:
Simply click on the teal words, "Lenten Cross" and you can download a nice copy to print out for each of the kids, to help them stay focused on their sacrifice each day!
Follow these easy directions for practicing the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, finishing at Easter with a visual representation of all your sacrificial gifts for Jesus!
Here is the Catholic Sistas pinboard for Lent on Pinterest. It's filled with wonderful links and ideas!
As usual, Lacy has lots of hands-on ideas for small children to really engage in Lent, from cheap and simple meatless meals to a Lenten Path to color!
If you've got a green thumb, here's a nice indoor project to do in anticipation of finding the empty tomb on Easter morning!
Lenten Prayer Chain:
Jennifer has included some easy printables to make a Lenten Prayer Chain, as well as LOTS more activities for Lent and Easter (the latter for those who like to plan ahead!), including a clothes pin crucifix, how to braid palm branches, and a list of Link Ups with at least 20 more easy, fun, practical ideas!
Good Friday Meal:
Jessica sets a wonderful table for Good Friday, full of simple foods with symbolic meanings to help draw your family closer to the Stations of the Cross!
I just started a pinboard for Lent, as well. Please let me know of any helpful ideas for Lent that we can pin and share with everyone!
