NOTE for 2012: Updated Lent for Children Daily Display for 2012
Last year I shared a treasure from 1951, Lent for Children: A Thought a Day. I reformatted it so you could print and share with your children.
I also created what I called a “Daily Display” which had the page for the day next to artwork and excerpts from the day’s Gospel. One of our favorite liturgical tools is an easel binder (or this one which is more expensive, but more durable and expandable) which we use daily at the table to highlight different thoughts for the liturgical seasons or feasts.
I have updated the Daily Display for 2011, and it’s available in one .pdf (large) file. My 7 year old son really likes following calendars, so this is created for this year’s Lent. I don’t have a version without the dates.
Although I have a color printer, I am taking this to be printed to save on toner. Note: If you are taking this to the printer, you might need to reduce the color a bit (the tech suggested 85%). It seems the pictures are darker, and need to be brightened up if being printed on the copier.

You have permission to print and use but not for profit.
Enjoy! More Lenten planning posts coming soon.
