This beautiful Lenten project was suggested by a homeschooling mother in the United States:
“We make a crown of thorns out of play dough or clay and stick toothpicks into the crown. We place it on a table with a small glass jar and as the children (& the grown ups too) do a good deed or make an extra sacrifice for Jesus during Lent, we remove a toothpick from the crown.
“It is great for the kids to see how many good deeds they can accomplish. It is even exciting for the adults.”
Please offer your crown of thorns, be it material or spiritual, for our priests in the Resistance!
