Lenten Prayer Chain

With Lent fast approaching (wasn't it just Christmas?) my mind has turned to ways that we can prepare for Easter as a family. I still feel like my girls (at 4 and 6) are kind of young for the "give something up for Lent" idea since they really have no concept of time. Last year we attempted the jellybean idea where they add certain color jellybeans to their jar based on good deeds that they do. It worked for awhile, but I will admit I became bad about remembering to reward them with jellybeans. This year I wanted to focus on our prayer life and adding new ways to pray. A few years ago in my catechism class, I had them make a Lent countdown chain and had them write 40 different people/things they wanted to pray for. I decided we would do the same thing only we would create our chain as a family. This would not only help with adding more prayer to our day, but it would also serve as a countdown for my girls so they could see a visual of how many days we had left until Easter.

Newspaper Heart Banner Craft

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I wanted a simple heart craft to do with my daughters that we could use for decorations all month long...#lazydecorator. As luck would have it, my oldest daughter had a snow day so we could all work on creating a newspaper heart banner together for our mantle with a few basic supplies that we had around the house.

The Olympics are coming!! We are so excited and counting down to the Opening Ceremonies. I have our Winter Games Bingo Cards ready to go for that night. We also have a tradition of making food from the host country for the first night of the games. I figure as my children get older, it can serve as more of a social studies lesson as we learn about a new country. To get my girls excited about the games, I made a Winter Games Read and Write the Room activity. There are 12 cards with different sports that we will see during the Olympic coverage. With these cards we can practice writing the words, alphabetizing the words or referencing the word cards as we write about the Olympics.
