(If you've never made a lap book before, check out this quick video to get you started!)
For the cover, I used an old bulletin, trimmed it, then glued it onto a black piece of card stock. This was then glued on one half of the file folder. If you don't have the old bulletins available, you can easily find a crucifix printable online.
On the left flap, I included a layered book of the three key messages of Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. On the bottom half, the children will choose three specific things that they can do during Lent. (I provided them with a list of ideas to choose from as well.)
HERE and HERE are the links to the documents for you to make these pieces.
For the center page, I used the adapted calendar mentioned in the link above.
HERE is the link to my Eastern count-down calendar.
For the right side flap, I used a collection of Lenten traditions. A picture of the item is included on the flap, then when you open it, there is a description of the item.
You can find this printable HERE.
I hope you enjoy making this lap book!
