And we finished off our celebration with a King's cake after dinner tonight.
Dom was enthralled by the King's cake, especially the little plastic baby you stick in the cake to represent Baby Jesus.
"Um, baby Jesus is naked... He has no nipples!"
I searched around for some ideas for how to explain Lent to a 2 year old. In this post by Karen Edmisten, she shares an idea for a Lenten caterpillar. So, we made an egg carton creature today as well. This little guy will be wrapped up in brown paper as his "cocoon" on Palm Sunday, and we'll make a butterfly on Easter Monday to represent new life and transformation. Dom was mostly impressed with the googley eyes.
