Emily's Easter Countdown
Emily loved using an Advent calender to count down the days till Christmas, so for Easter I wanted to do something similar. I was so excited when I found this great idea for making a "Lamb of God" and adding a cotton ball for each day of Lent on Karen Edmisten’s blog (http://www.karenedmisten.blogspot.com/).
To make ours I used a heavy piece of paper and drew a lamb.
Next, I took 46 cotton balls and placed them over the drawing. This helped me number where the cotton balls would be placed each day, I also liked having the numbers so that I could point them out each day as we are counting, since Emily has been into numbers recently. I added two googly eyes because I had them around and thought they looked cute :0)
Finally, Emily will add a cotton ball for each day of Lent starting on Ash Wednesday all the way till Easter.
*There are 40 days in lent because Sundays are not counted, however for this countdown I included them.
This is a neat idea. I have been looking for age-appropriate and meaningful Lent activities lately.
