Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
I used this idea from Catholic Icing last year, but created my own version and explained it all in more depth with the children this time.
I love this idea :) We have stored our Alleluia until Easter Sunday...
Panda Girl's Lenten promise is to "wash up the breakfast things every day to stop your hands crumbling Mummy" (I have sore hands from washing up so much - oh I love my children!)
For our alms giving we have made a Valentine's basket for our elderly neighbour who recently lost her husband of 57 years. The Boy made her a paper aeroplane :)
Finally completed after a few days work, the snow table and chairs were put to good use at snack time.
After some English and history we experimented with melting crayons. Ideally I wanted this to be done in heart-shaped tins for our St. Valentine week, but round ones will do for now.
