Just a quick note on getting our Lenten activities going.
First, Stations of the Cross. I printed these here and laminated them and hot glued them on party-pack votives. The votives I bought (I was going cheap at the time!) were too small to just glue the labels on. Thus, the laminating and hot glue. Which actually, works pretty well--they are durable and the hot glue actually came off this year but it was really easy to just re-glue them.
We have a couple of books, and we print off coloring pages every year.
Second, crown of thorns--I posted about this last year. A very positive tradition!
Third, almsgiving. We usually participate in our parish's rice bowl. I'm not sure what else we'll do yet this year! Hopefully we can decide tonight.
