7 Quick Takes: Lenten Resources for Homeschoolers

So, Lent has arrived so I thought I would put together some resources that I can use with Andrew throughout the next 40 days during our homeschooling. As I was putting it together, I thought I would share them here in case anyone else was looking for activities to do with their families.

Just keep in mind that I haven’t had the chance to check out every link yet, so I can’t vouch for the usefulness or orthodoxy of most of the links posted here. Browse at your own risk. 🙂
