Easter is Approaching!
Lent is the season Christians all over the world use to prepare to celebrate the ultimate gift of life we have been given through Jesus' death and resurrection. Lent is a season of 40 days leading up to Resurrection Sunday. It's a season that invites us to reflect on who we are, the world we live in, and the God who stops at nothing to make all things new through His Son Jesus Christ!
While there are many resources for adults to engage in Lent it is a little more tricky with kids – there aren’t nearly the resources available to walk your kids through Lent as there are during Advent!
But – never fear! We found a "Lent-a-day" activity to do with your kids. You can download the document here. It takes minimal prep and may be a helpful way to engage with your kids during this season.
This Mom has some great ideas…check it out!
