Stations of the Cross
Sacred Heart Stickers
Inserts for Lapbook
Crown of Thorns Image
A few directions:
Use the cross to count down the days to Easter by placing a Sacred Heart sticker at the end of each day, and the crown of thorns is where they keep track of their good deeds.
My Gifts for Jesus
Can you make sacrifices and acts of love for Jesus throughout the day? The thorns are reminders of Jesus' love for us, and how much He willingly and lovingly suffered. When you love someone, it overflows from your heart into action! The love we pour into each small act is precious to Jesus. At the end of each day, if you have tried your best to love Jesus during the day by being obedient, kind, and helpful, place a lovely flower sticker on a thorn (or draw and color a flower "sprouting" on a thorn). On Easter you will have a beautiful wreath(s) of flowers to give to our Risen Lord! (From a Year with God by Catholic Heritage Curricula)
Under each small picture is an explanation of what takes place in the Church on that day and why. The little folder with Jesus and the Children is where they write down the sacrifices they are trying to do along with some of the bad habits they are trying to correct. The Stations of the Cross cards are for them to color. The yellow envelope contains a picture of the Resurrection to open on Easter. It is done on a purple file folder.
May you have a blessed Lenten season!
