Today's prep for Lent: Ramona's Lamb of God

In case you missed this in the long list of ideas, I'm devoting a post to it.

On poster board, draw a picture of a lamb. Divide the body into squares to make a calendar, covering the entire period of Lent. Each day, Ramona will glue a cottonball on that day’s space. She loves this. Here are a couple pictures of last year's lamb:





















(In an effort to give credit where credit is due, I must say that the credit for this goes to someone else. I just wish I knew who! I saw a similar ideas in a little newsletter years ago. They suggested gluing cotton balls on a paper plate lamb, but I made our wall calendar instead. So, whoever you are ... you inspired this wall calendar, and we thank you!)

I have been WONDERING what I could do with my 3yo (and, even as I have wondered, I have been too busy/preoccupied/lazy to find anything). Thanks for solving that one for me. If you hadn't put this up, I would have never seen it (because I've been behind on blog-reading so I didn't click that link you so thoughtfully provided a few days back).

Belatedly, I really must thank you for sharing this adorable idea! We really love ours! (And I love your bean jar, too. So many great ideas! Maybe I should have given up reading blogs for Lent. :) )
