The first candle.
This was the second night activity. Sand is a symbol of Lent and represents the Israelite's time in the dessert and the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert fasting and being tempted in preparation for the crucifixion. The kids took turns pouring it in.
Playing with sand is very relaxing.
This sand container will stick around for Lent.
Will you be doing anything special with your family this year to celebrate Lent or Easter? I would love to hear about your plans.
I hope to post weekly about the things we are doing.
