We used this book for the first time this year and it was great. Our children are ages 6, 8 & 10 and it seemed just right. We look forward to using it again next year. For the ornaments we took turns drawing them ourselves each day (and we are NOT artistic). They stuck better in our memory and we hung them from a string tacked to the wall.
I appreciated the reading being for both adults and kids, which is why I purchased this book in the first place!We made ornaments to decorate a tree with, one that has built in lights. On Easter, we will tun on the lights!My only negative about the book is that it would require a good bit more foresight than I was able to give it if one wanted to pursue some of the suggested activities.I can't just pull making pretzles together in a morning with 2 young kids! But I like the idea!
We are finding this book very helpful to our Lenten Team for planning our Lent and Easter Season...we are also using it as a tool with some of our small groups in their preparation for Lent as well.It is a good book with lots of helpful suggestions for both children and adults. We would suggest this to anyone.
