Lent is almost here & for us it offers 40 days to prepare for Easter. To help us explore our journey through Lent we created a desert area in our hallway that all the family could interact with.
Lent is almost here & for us as a family it offers us 40 days to pause, reflect & prepare ourselves for Easter. The journey through Lent is often seen as a solitary experience & one which isn't always child friendly, but we've discovered that exploring Lent as a family offers us something special that we can share together, where we learn from each other, & grow in faith discovering all that Lent has to offer us.

If you follow our blog you'll know we love exploring outdoors in all weathers & when the freezing temperatures hit we can't wait to explore the ice. We've made several ice creations & explored a number of themes including nature, literacy & light with our ice lanterns made from recycled cartons.
