Preparing for Great Lent: Our Lenten Calendar...

Last year, I finally implemented a pretty Lenten calendar that I spotted on Rhythm of the Home (which now appears to be offline).  I remembered it in the nick of time last year and made it on Sunday afternoon just before Forgiveness Vespers.  I basically copied Bley Hack's Lenten Path using watercolor paper, Prang watercolors, and watercolor pencils.  While the calendar was drying, I took a little butterfly from the craft store and glued a round magnet to the back.  When everything was dry, I place it on the first stone on the Lenten path and put another magnet under the paper.  Now the butterfly can easily move from stone to stone.  Here's a video I took to show you how it works:

That is just beautiful! When I saw the watercolor calendar path I thought that was beautiful and the butterfly was just a detail, decoration. I was trying to come up with a way for my Sunday school students to move something along through their Lenten Journey. Now after seeing the the magnetic butterfly I'm so excited to share that with them. Thank you!
