Lent For Little Kids and an Ash Wednesday Freebie

Hi Friends,

For all my Catholic/Christian School friends, you know that Ash Wednesday is this Wednesday and we begin the long season of Lent. I used to dread teaching Lent to my kiddos because  the material that I could find was above their understanding. There is some really good Catholic/Christian material in the world, but just not enough for little kids. 

My kinders are excited to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday, but also a little apprehensive. So, I created this little activity that we do every year in preparation of what is to come. 

You can find this Ash Wednesday freebie on a Google doc that you can find HERE.  

(Please note that many school districts block outside sites. If this is true of your school, please download from home. If you receive a request for me to "allow access", that is probably what your school district does. The settings for this freebie are set for unlimited access to anyone.)

I also do a Lenten book with my students. It is based on the letters in the word LENT. 

 If you would like the entire LENT packet, you can find it at my TPT store by clicking the link below.


I also revised my "The Passion of Jesus" resource. In this packet, children create a half-sized booklet of the events that led to the resurrection of Jesus; all written in terms that little ones can understand. I do not provide any scriptural reference in my religious packets because of all the varied versions of the Bible. My resources are a SUPPLEMENT to your present religion curriculum.

So, now my friends.... Enjoy those sweets because Lent will be here soon!

Until next time!



  1. This is wonderful! :) It is so hard to find religion activities or lessons that are truly appropriate for little kids. Thank you so much for doing this! I already purchased your packets and I can't wait to use them!
