Little Church Lenten Resolutions
The children of our 'little church' made the below with play-doh .
There is a little 'Jesus in the desert' standing in the middle surrounded by representations of the children's Lenten resolutions. There are lots of televisions and x-boxes (meaning they will try to spend less time on them), balls (not playing football in the house), sweets and biscuits (having less / not having them before tea), faces (talking less), hearts (being good).
