Lenten Calendar

We're all familiar with the Advent Calendar, which helps us to anticipate Jesus' birth by eating one chocolate each day as we count down the days to Christmas. Here is a Lenten Calendar to help you count down to Easter with your kids during Lent. Notable days are marked off with images (Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter morning). Each day is numbered for the 40 days of Lent.

Instead of eating chocolate, you might choose to do a 'Lenten' activity each day. For example, our 3 year old is memorizing a few words of Psalm 23 each day, and then enjoys putting a sticker on the calendar for the day's date.

The downloadable "Lenten Calendar" sheet leads you through the 40 days of Lent from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.
