This year we are trying to encourage our 7 year old to participate in Lent. Since it is very hard your young children to give up one thing for the entire 40 days, we are having her write down a list of things she can give up. We are then going to have her write them on slips of paper and put the in a jar. Everyday we are going to have her draw from the jar and she wil have to give up that thing for 24 hours.
We are also going to do the Jelly Bean Jar Prayer for both kids. They earn certain color jelly beans for doing certain things (spelled out in the word.doc- click on the Jelly Bean Jar)This should be FUN!
