Easter Cross Project

This week's school will consist of fun projects for my little people in reflection of Jesus' death on the cross. My oldest daughter went to a birthday party over the weekend and painted this painting of the cross which was a great way to start the week.

Some of the supplies I used are pictured here.  Yes, I buy crafts sticks by the box!  Why not, we make a log cabin, a cross, picture frames or popsicles at the drop of a hat.

First I hot glue gunned the craft sticks together.  Next the kids colored them with colored pencils.

I wrapped twine around the middle (not picutred here).

Next the kids made a crown from gold pipe cleaners.

Last they placed their crosses in the air dry clay and embellished as desired.

My oldest wanted three crosses so I pulled out the toothpicks last minute.

This weekend they will be our centerpieces for Easter Dinner.
