My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

A Last Supper Craft

Last year we made this adorable craft featured on the Catholic Icing Blog. It was a lot of fun and Rosie in particular had a good time with it. But I put it away after Easter and when I got it out this year it just looked kind of worse for wear. I decided to "ramp it up" a little bit so that I could have a craft that could last for a few more years.

I still used Lacy's Last Supper Downloads, which are available for free on her site. Izzy colored them with magic markers and then cut them out. But this year, we glued them to a heavier foam type paper.

When the apostles and Jesus were all colored and cut out, I had Rosie color the table wear.

Then I used that heavy craft foam to make a table. Mr. Pete then graciously cut some wood that I could glue my foam table to so that it would have some weight to it.

I think it turned out rather well and will look nice on the table for dinner tonight and for Easter dinner. I also think this would be a great craft for First Communion kids to try out.

Here are our results -
