Easter is coming way sooner than seems possible! Lent starts next week so here are some ideas to get things going...
Shrove Tuesday is traditionally the day when people use up all of the rich foods in their homes, ready for the Lent fasting to begin. This is not a cooking activity (because every time I make pancakes it is a total disaster!), but it is an active way to celebrate and thank God for the good gifts He has given us.
Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, and a day where we have a chance to say sorry for things we have done wrong and to think about our lives. This post contains a simple interactive liturgy, an 'ash' related prayer activity and a craft to draw out the themes of the day.
