With Ash Wednesday just a week away, I thought I would share some Lenten posts from the past to help you and the little ones in your life to have a prayerful, meaningful Lent this year.
Books for Lent (and Easter)
Stations of the Cross at Home
Hide the Alleluia
Christmas cards from friends? Prayer intentions!
Crown of Thorns Craft
It was one of those years when I was feeling quite zealous, I guess. The Stations project cost a lot up front, but we store the candle holders and candles each year on Holy Saturday and pull them out again each Ash Wednesday. This is the type of craft that you can use year after year. The “Hide the Alleluia” craft was not as expensive, and we use these every year as well. The crown of thorns project is definitely the least expensive, but it’s not something I would store. I usually just toss the crowns at the end of Lent and start fresh the next year. And the Lenten Centerpiece is made up of things that you can use for other purposes the whole year through.
In a few weeks, I will share my Easter Garden Tutorial. Until then, I hope these ideas have inspired you!
