About this Book:

A complete guide to the Lent-Easter season for teachers and parents!

Lenten symbols such as ashes received on Ash Wednesday and the palms on Palm Sunday call attention in a singular way to this most important of the Church seasons: Lent-Easter. The Lent-Easter Book is the answer for teachers and parents who want to make these seasons powerful renewals of Christian life for their children, create meaningful family traditions, and celebrate the season in classroom and home with handmade kid-friendly crafts, gifts, and recipes.

The Lent-Easter Book offers teachers and parents:

  • Stories, crafts, activities, and discussion starters for each week based on the major themes of Lent and the feasts of the Easter Season
  • Almost fifty pages of reproducibles for classroom and home use
  • Easy-to-follow format by theme
  • Community building activities for all ages
  • Hands-on crafts, activities, and kitchen fun that are easy for students to complete on their own
  • Family Take-Home Pages and other reproducible pages for teachers
  • Reproducible booklets for the Stations of the Cross (for younger and older grades) and How to Go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation
  • Suggestions for beginning family Lenten and Easter customs and traditions
  • Celebration and activity ideas for Easter Feasts including: Divine Mercy Sunday, Good Shepherd Sunday, Ascension, and Pentecost
  • Lent/Easter reflections for parents and teachers.

About the Author:

Dear Parents and Teachers,

Lenten and Easter customs and traditions don't have to be elaborate to hold special meaning. They can be as simple as receiving ashes on Ash Wednesday, or placing "alms" in the "rice bowl," or praying the Stations of the Cross. These customs and traditions can form warm memories for our children, and they can also pass on valuable lessons about our faith.

With plenty of hands-on activities, kid-friendly readings from Scripture, pint-sized prayers, and reproducible pages, this book provides additional tools for parents and teachers to make the Lenten and Easter seasons more meaningful for their children.

Knowing that families and classrooms often have busy days with hectic schedules, the projects included in this books are tailored to fit into crowded calendars and lesson plans.

It is my hope that this book will provide you with fresh ideas that you can share with your children and students.

May the seasons of Lent and Easter offer you many opportunities to nourish the seeds of faith you have already planted.
Joan Marie Arbogast, Author
