Kids will create unique art using cross shapes and colors.  Great talk time about how many crosses were at the crucifixion.  Talk about the facts of the cross and the timeline of Jesus’ death as they color.

  • White paper
  • Cross shapes cut from cardstock
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper for framing
  1. Cut cardstock into cross shapes. Use varied outlines.  Try cutting out printed pictures.
  2. Let kids lay the crosses on their paper and trace them, overlapping in several places.
  3. Now kids can color the crosses, but every time they cross a line they must change colors.
  4. Encourage kids to use lots of colors and even patterns to make each space look different.
  5. Fill in the background where no crosses are traced. Use a loose pattern to help cut down on the amount of area needing color.
  6. Tape or glue the art into a construction paper frame that compliments the colors chosen.
