Printable Lenten Calendar for Kids I used it last year to teach about giving at Lent. I had them do something helpful each day - a chore to help a parent or brother or sister, a kindness to someone, etc. As a reward their parent gave them a nickel for each act, which they taped to the calendar. At Easter we collected them and used $ to buy Spanish Bibles which we sent with a mission group.

SATURDAY OR EASTER SUNDAY. Easter story nature walk. Inspired by this article, take a nature walk and collect symbols of the Easter story. Something purple (representing royalty) to remember Jesus is your King. Thorns to feel & remember the beating & crown of thorns your Lord bore for you. A rock to remember He died & was buried. Life (a budding flower, etc) to remember Jesus rose from the dead, & you too can be saved from death. (Bonus activity)
