Our GIT IT! Content for April 12, 2019

This week, for our GIT IT content, we have a Never-Ending LENT Minibook! This book is made from one sheet of paper that you can print on your printer, cut and fold. I call it never-ending because once assembled, when you read it and get to the last page, you automatically turn back to the first page. The book focuses on the two acronyms for LENT and provides a brief description of the meaning that can be taken from each word of each acronym.
 
This can be a very useful tool for meditating on “LENT” (or perhaps using as a mantra) and/or contemplating on each of the words that comprise the acronym. It also is a good tool for engaging your children in a discussion during the remainder of this Lenten season. So fire up your printer, find your scissors and have fun making this resource.  Total time to complete after printing is about 5 minutes.
