Sharing Lent With Your Kids

Lent is a special time to practice prayer and giving, compassion and sharing (important concepts for kids too!)  The best way to teach kids just about anything is through fun and engaging activities.  Here are a few ideas to try with your little ones.

Chocolate Pretzel Treat
A traditional Lent snack, pretzels can be used in all sorts of fun crafts and kid-friendly recipes.  This one is especially easy to create with your little ones.  (I am not sure how appropriate chocolate is for Lent, but it's the pretzels that count!)

Cleaning Game
Spring is a great time to get some cleaning done before the hustle and bustle of Summer gets here.  Kids are not too young to learn to help out, even in little ways with the cleaning!  This game is a great way to get them started.

Scoop of Love
Although Valentine's Day is passed, showing love is always in season.  Adapt this craft to reflect a Spring theme and use it to teach your kids how to show compassion.

Share Package
During Lent many people focus on giving as a way to prepare for the Easter holiday.  This Share Package idea will help you teach your kids about giving, while also getting some of that Spring cleaning done and de-cluttering the toy box.

I hope these ideas inspire you and your kids as Spring approaches!

Enjoy!  Remember, we love feedback and photos!
