Countdown Calendar for Lent {free printable!}

As we're just about to begin Lent, I thought I'd share another idea that we're looking forward to doing at our house! It's a Lenten Countdown Calendar that you fill up with mini marshmallows. I was inspired by the great lenten lamb calendar using cotton balls over at Three Sided Wheel, and thought it'd be fun to try drawing my own mini version to use with marshmallows.

I thought I'd share it with you, in case you might want to do this at home with your children:

Feel free to print as many as you like to use this Lent! I designed mine to have 40 squares (not including Sundays). I purposely left most of the squares blank, so it can be printed and used year after year by filling in the dates yourself. You can write in the dates, days of the week, or even just number each square from 1-40. Each day simply affix a marshmallow and by Easter your lamb will look like this:

I hope your family enjoys this approach to Lent as we countdown to Easter! If you're looking for more Lenten ideas, you might want to check out our Lenten Family Prayer Jar as well as our Lenten Spiral. And also make sure to check out the Lenten link-up over at Catholic Icing for more great ideas!

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed 40 days.
