Lesson Notes: Ash Wednesday and Lenten Activities
Sometimes the seasonal activities packets are assigned to a specific week, and sometimes they’re just a bonus in with the rest of your month’s lesson packet. This is your purple flag warning that, despite its place at the end of the Month Outline, you should not wait until the end of this month to pull out this lesson.
In advance, peek through it today or tomorrow and decide which activities are going to be just right for your family this Lent. Some of them require a little preparation, so plan some time for it. Some can easily be prepared by your kids – coloring and cutting and building a paper chain.
My Plan For Lenten Growth should be a pre-Wednesday family discussion topic. There are definitely things you can do (or give up) as a family, and there are other things that you might want to do (or give up) as individuals.
No matter what you decide, planning ahead will give you a strong start!
