Today is the beginning of another Lent. Ash Wednesday, I will be giving up Chocolate, Starbucks, and ice cream/frozen yogurt. sacrificing these things does not compare to what our Savior Jesus Christ did for us, but this will show my Love and appreciation for Jesus. Comment below on what your giving up this Lent
Good idea for maybe the welcome table or centerpiece for the Connection Cafe table.

Ash Wednesday, February 13, begins the season of Lent. I'd like to share with you some of the ideas from the past three years for making this season meaningful for the children in your life. If you have never observed Lent as a family before, I encourage you to try it. Preparing ourselves and our children for Easter makes it more celebratory and communicates that Easter is much more than hunting eggs and eating chocolate bunnies (although those things are loads of fun!) . Click on the links below the pictures for the original posts. A Lenten Nature Table Children need time to prepare for important holidays just as adults do. Having symbols of Lent in the home help children to prepare for the joy of Easter. Lenten Nature Table 2012 Lenten Nature Table 2011 The Stations of the Cross for children This website offers a great plan for doing the Stations with children in a way that they can understand. Lenten Prayer Pots These are small bowls that the children make out of clay and nature materials. Each week they place a small object in the bowl to remind them of God and help prepare their hearts for celebrating Easter. Lenten Prayer Pots Godly Play: The Mystery of Easter & The Faces of Christ These stories focus on the meaning of Lent and the life of Jesus. The Mystery of Easter Post 1 and Post 2 The Faces of Easter Pray for the poor of the world Make meals that the poor in other countries eat on a daily basis. Pray for them with your children, and use the money that you save to send to an aid organization. Helping Children Identify with the Poor Do a social project Serve someone else during Lent as a family, church, or school group. The Easter Club visits a Senior Center. Grow Easter Grass in the Shape of the Cross Easter Grass Resurrection Eggs These eggs have symbols inside that tell the story of Jesus' death and resurrection.

Lent is marching quickly and I’m trying to integrate some of the ideas I’ve seen elsewhere for celebrating the season. One idea that caught my eye this year came from Holly @ Three Sided Wheel. She shared about a Lenten mantel that is so serene it just called to me. Source: threesidedwheel.wordpress.com via …

Easter/Spring: Grapevine and Toothpicks
easter wreath centerpiece
We have had a Lenten Wreath on our dining room table during Lent for many years now for decoration. Having never heard of the "salt dough" version, ours is just a grapevine wreath with toothpicks that were dyed using black RIT dye. No special directions, just soak them in the dye for a few hours, drain them and let them dry on paper towels over night.This year we have added a pillar candle (it has purple flecks in it) set in sand to remind us of the penitential nature of the season and also of the desert but mostly because the kids are really into candles! I plan to have them remove one each at snack time since that is primarily when they will be fasting from treats as an act of penance. I decided not to have them add one for any venial indiscretions. I find that I tend to focus on what they do wrong enough as it is. Trying to be more positive and acknowledge the good here! The list of chores will be posted in several places around the house and the kids have already chosen what their first chore will be on Wednesday to earn money for the poor. (BTW we chose this route because our kids don't get allowances. If they ever were to get an allowance, I might just ask them to donate a portion of that instead.) Here is a picture of our poor box. Shortcake chose to donate her piggy bank. It is perfectly purple, as you can see! Oh, and if your kids are really into candles too, check out Michelle's comment below about how to do a Candlelit Stations of the Cross.

Lenten Pretzel recipe and printable card...also had a link for the religious connection to pretzels!!
Lent: Pretzels for Lent - Did you know that the pretzel is a traditional food for lent? When early Christians would pray, they would cross their arms and touch each shoulder with the opposite hand. They also fasted very strictly during lent, making their bread with only water, flour, and salt. A monk shaped this in the form of praying arms for children, and the pretzel was born!
Lenten Pretzels - better pretzel recipes are available - this page has info about using pretzels as a teaching tool during lent.
