ACtivities for Children During Lent

Lenten Calendar: 40 Crosses - Each day, your child can color a calendar of crosses with the color that corresponds to what they have done that day. This is a great way to raise children's awareness of the days of Lent. Click here to print the calendar.

Make a Lenten Tree – A Lenten Tree is a simple decoration made from bare twigs hung with eggs, ribbons, paper flowers etc. You can make a Lenten Tree and use it with these 14 short readings that tell the story of Easter, from Palm Sunday to Easter Day. The readings are on scrolls that you can hang on the Lenten Tree as you read them. There are readings for Ash Wednesday and each Sunday of Lent, and one for each day of Holy Week.

Our Taking Faith Home inserts have activities for kids each week.  Consider committing to having a Caring Conversation, doing the Devotion, trying the Service project or doing one of the Rituals and Traditions from Taking Faith Home each week.
