The answer is you can! Although many denominations do not celebrate lent. We decided that OUR family would prepare our hearts for Easter by celebrating Lent.
What is Lent?
According to Bing:
The period before Easter in Christian calendar: the period of 40 weekdays before Easter observed in some Christian churches as a period of prayer, penance, fasting, and self-denial
You will notice our projects are from Catholic Icing, I want to make it clear that we are NOT BLENDING CATHOLICISM & PROTESTANTISM. I am simply including the links to the craft projects that we are doing to help our children understand the Lenten season. If there are scripts or explanations we are skipping those and concentrating on some very well thought out crafts.
Our Children will be doing some activities on the different days of Lent most of which we found on Catholic Icing. We will do this Lenten count down but there are some squares that I will be skip because they don’t pertain to the Protestant faith. We will read scripture pertaining to each project and discuss the significance of the event. Additionally, on Easter we will have a feast (but we do that every year).
Now, my humble suggestion is that before you use any of these items with your children if you are a protestant is that you discuss this with your husband. Additionally, you may have to modify them to use them so they adhere to your protestant belief system. I am NOT trying to blend Catholicism & Protestantism we are seeking only to worship our Lord Jesus as he has prescribed for our Baptist family. The projects that we use do come from a Catholic website and at some points have to be modified to ascribe to the protestant faith. When you print out her stuff, if you’re a Baptist like me you may need to discard the directions, and I cut off or erase anything that is specific to the Catholicism.
Does your family celebrate Lent? If so what are y’all doing to draw closer to the Lord that has been made manifest to us?
