An easy Cross craft kids can make, a precious symbol of hope and a reminder that God is still in control, especially in uncertain times.

With schools closed till early April (at least for now), we’ve been doing our best to focus on the positive, make the most of each day, and do what we can to encourage each other’s faith, as COVID-19 concerns loom around.

Thanks to my sponsored partnership with Oriental Trading (OTC) our totes have enough crafting supplies the kids can use.

My 6 year old took the lead on this craft…

An easy Cross craft to encourage a child’s faith.

Materials required:

Cross sticky boards

Mini neon tissue paper squares

To make your Cross craft of choice:

1. Peel off the paper on the cross to expose the sticky part on the board.

2. Now have your child take a tissue square, roll it into a ball, and place it on the sticky part of the board.

Encourage your child to design her cross any way she chooses.

Watch your child’s creativity take over.

So pretty!

Add self-adhesive magnet dots on the back of the board to make this the perfect fridge magnet.

This is an easy craft for kids as young as preschoolers and would make the perfect Easter project at home,  for that Easter get-together or even your Sunday School class.
