Lent is right around the corner (Feb. 22, 2012)! With that in mind, I’m happy to share with you one of a number of NEW activities for my 40 Ideas for 40 Days of Lent which I will be unveiling soon!
This idea comes from Liz who blogs at Holy Family Classical Academy. The activity is called Walk the Lenten Path.
Liz has created a Lenten calendar that helps children walk through the season of Lent day by day. She has provided a color pdf or a black & white one so that children can color it in on their own. Then, they can countdown the days of Lent by putting a sticker on that day’s square each morning. You might consider using different color stickers to indicate a specific lenten practice they will do that day: prayer, fasting, almsgiving, etc.
Here are the PDFs:
Thanks, Liz, for sharing this with us!
