Clip to ScrapBook #4

One activity I always enjoy doing is this:
I purchased a grapevine wreath at craft store (pretty small) I had a larger one the first year I tried and one of my students said, "Wow! Jesus had a big head." (Yikes) Anyway, I colored a bunch of toothpicks brown to match and put the wreath on a purple cloth. I put all of the colored toothpicks in the wreath to look like thorns. Each time a student did a kind deed, they could remove a thorn from Jesus's crown. This really helped make a visual of their Lenten promises.
Prior the buying the wreath, I used to bake a bread wreath and fill with toothpicks and do the same thing. I just got tired of making it new each year, and like that now I can just take this one out each year.
