I'm in charge of organizing a 2 hour retreat for my homeschool co-op. It's about 60 kids ages baby thru 9th grade. I probably will divide them by ages and have them rotate through stations.
There is a chapel and an outdoor stations of the Cross.
I think I might have the younger kids pray the stations of the cross, a stations of the cross box
a Lenten type snack, and music
I'm a little lost on the older kids (5th and up). Of course, they can do an outdoor stations of the cross. I thought I might do a guided meditation, but one of the moms objects because as a girl she learned meditation but it turned new agey. I'm not sure they are ready for more than a short meditation anyway.
I need ideas for: music for the younger kids (they love motion songs); a Lenten snack.
For the older kids, I need help with any ideas.
Also, do you think the 3rd/4th graders would think the stations of the cross box is a little dorky? This is ages 8-10.
