Our Preschool Plan for Lent

The Lenten season is upon us — the 40 days leading up to Easter. 


I found this really neat Lenten calendar 

from the Catholic Icing blog here

that we plan to use to count down the days to Easter.  We are going to use our Do-A-Dot markers (purple for Easter!) to mark off the days.

I also figured out that there are 40 stories leading up to “God’s Wonderful Surprise” (the Resurrection story) in The Jesus Storybook Bible

so if we read one a day, we’ll end up on Day #40 reading about the Resurrection.  There are 4 stories left to read afterwards for some follow-up. 🙂

Are you doing anything to prepare for Lent or Easter?



Here is my Easter Pinterest board that I am currently adding ideas to daily! 🙂
