Nurturing Faith Ideas for March
March 2 – Parents show love in different ways – lots of hugs, high-fives, kind notes; others are more reserved. Tap into your own way of showing your kids you care.
March 9 – To help children learn about Lent, watch a movie together. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is jam packed with teachable moments. Visit this website for ideas on discussing the movie with children:
March 16 – Post Bible verses, especially the words of Jesus, on the refrigerator, bathroom mirrors or wherever a busy family will see them. Talk about them and how they apply to events in our daily lives.
March 23 – Help your children decorate a Mite box. Select a charity that helps those in need and have everyone contribute their change. On Easter, empty box, count together, and put a check in the mail.
March 30 – Bake your own pretzels (find a recipe or buy the frozen ones). Pretzels originated as early Christian Lenten treats, designed in the form of arms crossed in prayer.
