Lenten Activities for Children...

Illuminated Ink has long been one of my favorite resources for meaningful crafty activities for the children. They are a family of incredible talent and design all of their products. If you're familiar with the Catholic market I'm sure you've seen their work. I prefer to purchase directly from them since there is no middle man to cut into their profits.

We have not yet purchased this kit but have made their Marian grottos which look very similar in design and are really enjoyable and attractive. Little ones will need some help with this but it is still a great project to do together. This kit contains everything needed for a complete set of the Stations of the Cross.

After coloring, cutting and assembling this kit, the kids can re-enact the events of Holy week which are portrayed in 4 different scenes, starting with the Last Supper and continuing through the Resurrection. Looks like some adult help may be needed but, hey, that's what we're here for!

This kit contains everything needed to make a solid 8" pillar candle out of pure beeswax sheets. It also includes design and decoration accessories and templates along with an explanation of the liturgical significance of candles.

Illuminated Ink also carries items to help prepare for and celebrate First Communion such as banner and invitation kits and a ton of items that make really nice Easter gifts. I have never been disappointed with a purchase and am even happier to buy from a family of such genuinely wonderful people!
