Encouraging kids to live the weeks of Lent is always difficult, mainly because of their limited attention span.
Katie suggests that giving children specific things for each day, might make keepingeach Lent a lot easier , as they focus on specific actions each day. This year she wants to encourage actions that portray praying, fasting and giving.

Where she suggests that each child take one activity from each pocket , you could adapt tis to allow the younger children to take just one, while older or upper primary students might take one from each pocket.
Perhaps after they scoff their pancakes, the family could brainstorm the prayers and actions they would feel were appropriate.
Give it a go anyway - and if you do try it, we would love to know the kids' reactions and how thje family fared.
