Last year I came out with The Advent Christmas Planner, which was very helpful in planning a smooth Christmas season for my family. I wanted to write a Lent Easter one, but looks like that has gone on the back burner until next year. In the mean time, here’s a very abbreviated version to help you out… a whole pack of Lenten planning pages!
Best part about this Lenten Planning Pack? It’s free for subscribers! You’ll find the download on the Subscriber Bonus Page. If you’re currently reading this in an email because you’re already an email subscriber, you’ll find the link at the bottom of the email. If you are not yet a subscriber, you can become one by entering your email address with the link below. That way, you’ll always be updated when I come out with a new craft or printable! You’ll receive an email with the subscriber bonuses link the next time I put a new post on Catholic Icing.
If you don’t want to wait and you’d rather just purchase this download for $1, wish granted. Click the button below.
Pages In the Lenten Planning Pack:
There’s a page for simple and general Lenten planning. Here’s the one I have partially filled out.
There’s another page to list your Lent and Easter activities you want to remember to do. You check if this activity should happen during Lent or Easter, then star the ones that are most important to you. That way you can think through, prioritize, and make sure the most important things don’t fall through the cracks.
There’s also a page to plan for “Lenten Cleaning”. I’ve seen versions of these that are already filled in, but being a homemaker myself, I know that ever house has different needs. Even my own house’s need will be different next year than this year. So you can fill this one in yourself to match with your own home. I suggest actually taking the page, walking around your home, and writing in the areas you see that need help.
I am not planning on tackling this list in any particular order. My plan is to look down the page each day and choose a project that is conducive to my time and energy for that day. My friend said her list is all going to be small, accomplishable tasks such as “dust 1 light fixture”. My house is actually more in need of better organization than dusting right now, so overall, that’s what I concentrated on.
I plan on my Lenten cleaning project to coincide with my 40 Days 40 Bags project, so I also made a printable page for 40 Days 40 Bags to make sure I stay on track.
This page can be either a simple checklist for each time you fill a bag…
…or you can actually write on the bags what you plan to declutter, or what you did declutter. Or you could even write names of family members on the bags indicating how many bags each person will fill. It’s a very versatile printable.
My Lenten calendar stick-ons are also in the pack. These can be cut out and glued onto your own calendar so you don’t forget any important Catholic days! Use the ones you want, disguard the ones you don’t.
There are also several pages to make shopping lists, lists of your favorite resources so you don’t have to remember them each year, and planning pages for Easter dinner and getting your family ready for Easter Mass.
I can’t wait to be able to complete Lent and Easter Planner for next year, but in the mean time, I truly hope this simple pack helps you and your family to plan a meaningful Lent. <3Pin It
