  • Construction paper
  • White paper
  • Marker or ink pen, small stickers
  • Hot glue gun (low temp)
  • Scissors
  • Eight jelly beans- one of each color: red, orange, yellow, green, purple, pink, white, and black
  1. Draw a cross on the white paper and cut it out.
  2. Glue the white cross onto colored construction paper and cut around it as a frame.
  3. Place two jelly beans in each portion of the cross and write what they stand for. “Red is for the blood he gave. Green is for the grass he made. Yellow is for the sun so bright. Orange is for the edge of night. Purple is for his hour of sorrow. Pink is for our new tomorrow. Black is for the sin we have. White is for the grace he gave.”
  4. In the middle of the cross, write “A handful of jelly beans…simple, colorful, and sweet reminds us of some reasons, he makes our life so complete!”
