Activities

Themed activities can be found here! At the moment the theme is Lent!

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is the day in which Jesus entered the desert to fast for 40 days and 40 nights; which is why it is the day that marks the start of Lent.

Officially known as the day of ashes, now Ash Wednesday is a day of repentance where Christians often go and confess their sins and profess their devotion to God.

Activities for this Day:

Here is a link to a printable word search with key words based around Ash Wednesday. It’s a nice fun lil’ activity to do with a cuppa or snack (Or both!).

Perhaps you could make your own Lent Calendar starting today! It can be used to track each day; you can tick off everyday you complete your Lent aim- or everyday you mange to successfully give up your chose treat. For example, chocolate. 

Make it colorful and unique to you; draw pictures, label the important days, tick each day off with a sticker. You could even shape the calander as a snake if you wanted. If anybody decides to do this, I’d love to see your pictures!!

Throughout Lent

I have also found online, from the World Mission Church International some Easter themed colouring pages including some of Jesus’ Miracles such as Calming The Storm and the Healing of the Paralysed Man.

Stories for throughout Lent:

The Baptism of Jesus

Matthew 3: 13-17

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son,with whom I am well pleased.”

The Temptation of Jesus

Matthew 4: 1-11

At that time Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights and afterwards was hungry. The tempter approached and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves of bread. He said in reply, “It is written: One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” Then the devil took him to the holy city and made him stand on the parapet of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written: He will command his angels concerning you and with their hands they will support you lest you dash your foot against a stone.” Jesus answered him, “Again it is written, you shall not put the Lord, your God to the test.” Then the devil took him up to a very high mountain and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their magnificence and he said to him, “All these I shall give to you if you will prostrate yourself and worship me.” At this, Jesus said to him, “Get away Satan! It is written: The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.” Then the devil left him, and behold angels came and ministered to him.
