Last year, inspired by Charlotte, my family really enjoyed using Tomie de Paola’s Garden of the Good Shepherd: A Sticker Album to Count the 50 Days to celebrate the Easter season.
Normally it retails for $19.95, but right now you can purchase it for just $3.00 from Liturgy Training Publications. Shipping is rather high, but it is still cheaper than purchasing it from Amazon, plus you can order a few extras to give away, like I did last year! 😉
In a thread over at 4Real, Anne (who just made an amazing Jesus Tree) suggested making a homemade felt Garden of the Good Shepherd as well. I would totally *love* to do that, but I am not sure I’ll be able to this year. We’ll see!
Even though it is early, I went ahead and updated my sidebar with links to our Garden of the Good Shepherd posts from last year. I may update them and add a few new activities when it comes time to do them this year, but I thought I’d link them anyway.
