To observe Lent, set up a Lenten tree. Hang Bible verses on the tree, 1 for each day from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday. Each day take a verse & read it. Then pray the verse, read its context, or talk about it. As Easter approaches, the tree will grow more bare & will be empty on Holy Saturday as we remember Christ in the tomb. Easter morning, fill the tree w/ egg ornaments/flowers. [I add read the Resurrection story & sing a Resurrection song w/ the family like Christ the Lord is Risen Today!]
A different version of the Lent tree, plus an idea for a Lenten offering vase. Might try this one next year.

Lent ideas for family
This year, I decided we wou k d make a family Lent tree, similar to our Thanksgiving tree tradition. It is bare right now, just like the trees outside in the dead of winter and our goal is to purposefully find as many things as possible for the next 40 days that we are thankful God did or made, that our bare tree becomes a full green tree by Easter, the start if spring!
Lots of easter stuff
