Lent Activities for Catholic Families

40+ Lent Activities for Catholic Families

Lent is a beautiful liturgical season full of tradition and solemnity. It is a special time of year to slow down and dig deep into the faith.

There are so many simple and yet very effective ways to pass the faith on to our children during the liturgical season of Lent.

I have compiled a list of over 40 Lent activities, printables, crafts, and recipes for your family to choose from. 

Some of the Lent activities included in the list below are our family’s favorites and are yearly traditions. 

A vast majority of the activities are FREE with the exception of a few marked ($).   

I hope that you and your children find some Lent activities that suit your family and don’t forget to let me know what your family’s favorite Lent devotion is.
