Yesterday in my daughters K/1st Catholic co-op class I had the kids make lap books for Lent. I didn't have time to run to the store for tri-fold folders, but the regular file folders worked just fine.
|On the front we glued the Lent Countdown calendar from Catholic Icing.|
I wanted to teach them about the three tenents of Lent - Praying, Fasting, and Almsgiving.
|Prayer & Fasting|
Fasting - On the right panel we focused on fasting. The children colored and glued THIS coloring page illustrating fasting. We had a discussion about what would be appropriate to fast from. (i.e. something that you loved or used on a daily basis - broccoli would not be appropriate unless you really really love it!). Again there is another panel to write what they were planning on fasting from.
