Unique Cross Crafts

Rainbow Cross Craft Kit
 from Oriental Trading

This is one of my favorite crafts for Easter. It is so unique that I kept my son's cross up on our wall  for 10 years after he made it in Vacation Bible School. (I would have kept it up longer but I had to take it down when we moved.) This art project takes a lot of patience so I broke it up into 4 different days with 30 minutes spent on each day (for third graders). Most children are done by the third day, but I do not want the perfectionists (like my son) to feel rushed. Breaking up the project times worked out great, and the kids were very proud of their creations when they were completed.

For younger children, I recommend these inspirational cross pictures that resemble stained glass church windows. They are quite striking for such an easy art project!
TIP: When ordering from Oriental Trading, most projects are sold in large quantities. I usually split the cost with another parent or I give the extra projects to friends, neighbors, my nieces and nephews, or my church.
