Ideas for Formation at Home:

** Stations of the Cross: Have kids research online (there's a bazillion diff reflections) one that works for your family.
** Saints: Kids can research saints who have their name (middle,family)... find a patron an interest (sports... hunting...)
** Pray the Rosary: Kids can research different rosary prayers and intentions for them (or create their own)
** Grab your Bible (or read online) & read a Gospel story, from Acts, daily readings or the psalms (try 23 & 121...)
** Find & Download a Faith App:   Apps-Faith (Abbreviated List)  or  Apps-Faith (Description List)
** Keep on with your Rice Bowl!  CRS Rice Bowl
** Service!! - What can you do? Call/reach out to neighbors, older people... write & mail notes... share T.P. ...get creative!
** Play Mass!!   Write a skit for a Bible story, gather props from around the house and perform!
** Create a game/board game to share at church
