The Garden of the Good Shepherd is a sticker countdown calendar for the 50 days of Easter. There is a different theme each day and a sticker to go along with it. There's also a scripture reading for each day.
Day 1 ~ The Good Shepherd
John 10:14-15Rejoice! The Lord is Risen
Day 2 ~ The Shepherd's Crook
We made crook shaped breadsticks and read Legend of the Candy Cane.
Day 3 ~ The Sheepfold
We made "sheep"...
Day 4 ~ The Gate of the Sheepfold
We made garden gates...
Day 5 ~ The Ewe and the Ram
We made this Ram craft
Day 6 ~ The Lamb
Lamb of God cupcakes!
This is the version we made for the Ascention
I decided to go a different route this time. The marshmallows would be overkill given the rest of the candy around here lately :)
Day 7 ~ The Wolf
We read Saint Francis and the Wolf by Richard Egielski. Such a cute book!
Overall, this was a good week. We didn't keep up with each day, but we were able to catch up the next day. Jessica and Charlotte are hosting a weekly party over at Catholic Cuisine! Come on over!
