A Calendar that we use to follow the Jesus Tree readings. We sort of combined the many ideas for a lenten path or calendar with the Jesus Tree, instead of making a tree. This works just fine for us.
A mason jar full of sacrifices the kids can make. My younger ones still don't like the idea of giving up one thing for 40 days. This makes it a bit easier in that they can pick a sacrifice each day. But no double-picking if it says "Don't watch TV today" and it's American Idol night!
Ash Wednesday update: It seems only Meg will do this. Pip doesn't seem to need the extra help. I'll probably do hers with her, though, if I can. Unless it's someone else's chores---I'm not doing THAT!
pretzels with them on a fast day. They turned out beautifully, but I have no idea how they taste.
Here's to a Blessed and Fruitful Lent, everyone!
