Exploring Lent with Young Kids - 40 Nature Activities (includes Free Printable)

Lent is almost here & this year we're doing something a little different from previous years. Recently I've noticed how few Leten resources there are for younger children, so this year I've created "40 Nature Activities for Young Kids this Lent" with super simple activities to explore every day.


Designed primarily for children under 5yrs (but adaptable for older kids) there's a range of activities to explore. You'll find things to do in all weathers, activities to enjoy during different times of the day, & what's great about these cards is that you can pick & choose which ones to explore, when & where.  


Following on from our popular Advent Gratitude Cards which we shared in December, these Lent activities follow the same format, with each designed on cards for you to print. The cards carry a short simple description of each daily activity, & are an ideal size to pop into a pocket, or for little hands to hold.


All activities are nature-based & easy to explore with most of them needing no preparation or extra resources. Amongst the 40 you'll find a few focusing specifically on key days during Lent, such as Maundy Thursday & Good Friday, but the majority of activities can be explored any day during Lent, so you can choose which ones best suit your family & your schedule.


You can get your FREE 40 Activities here. Simply print on either recycled paper or thin card & then cut out. Along with the activities you'll also find some Easter Egg templates which can be used for one of the activities.


You could use the cards to create a game by hiding them every day for children to find, keep the cards in a jar for them to pick one out, or simply stack them on a table for them to discover each day, the choice is yours.

However you explore them, I hope you & your family enjoy discovering our amazing planet & the wonder of creation as you journey through Lent towards Easter.
