Family Lent Resources

Just wanted to give you some websites, if you’re looking for Lent activities for the whole family:

Catholic mom has a bunch of ideas that could work for kids of any Christian religion celebrating Lent. It includes links to a Lent crossword puzzle and a word search as well as coloring pages.

This site offers a simple children’s activity idea for each week of Lent.

Here’s a calendar with 40 days of family activities. A few of them are Catholic-specific but most could work with any Lenten tradition.

The Armenian church shares some Lenten ideas for youth.

And a pretty cool idea for planting Easter grass with kids.

Also, for those of you going without meat, here are some links to vegetarian recipes:
