Lenten Ideas for Kids {And a Linky!}

Ok, it's really time to get our Lenten ducks in a row! Lent will be here before you know it!!! Here are some Lenten ideas for children from my archives:

Before we begin the linking, can you take a minute and vote for Catholic Icing as best Catholic blog 2011? I would really appreciate it! Votes last for 1 more week, and you can vote once a day. It only takes a few seconds- no registering involved. Thank you for supporting Catholic Icing!

Share your ideas by linking up below! I'm really excited to see what all of you are planning because I'm convinced that the readers of this blog are some of the Craftiest Catholics in the world! :-) Be sure to keep checking back to this post for the new links!

(We'll have separate link-ups for Holy Week and Easter, so this list is just for your ideas for lent!) If you share a link below and your format allows, please link back to this post. If you have multiple links to add, you can just link back to here from one of them if that's easier for you. :-)
