Activities for Lent

We have several Lenten traditions:

  • We always sign up for the Holy Heroes Lenten Adventure.  It’s free and the kids love the daily videos.
  • We have Stations Candles and I have a VERY abbreviated version of the stations that we pray on Friday.  Each child gets to light a certain number of candles and blow them out at the end.  Totally a favorite.
  • In the yard on Ash Wednesday, we burn the palms from last year and say some prayers over them.  Again, fire is a favorite.
  • Inside the house we “Bury the alleluia” in a box, that sits on the mantle till Easter.
  • This year, we will also do the sacrifice beans that turn into jelly beans.
