This is something the kids like doing every year for Lent to countdown to Easter.
We make a big purple chain with good deeds to do for each day of Lent.
The link for Easter is yellow and also has an "action item" on it:
We have our's hanging where we can see it every day.
Here's what's left:
Clare and Jude enjoy waking up and immediately tearing a link off of the chain.
It also gives them a visualization of how many days are left until Easter.
While I was working on gluing the chain, Clare made some Lenten symbols with the leftover scraps.
(A cross, a rope, and a nail - I have to say the nail is my favorite.)
PS - Part of the territory that comes with potty training...
