This craft could be used to tell your kids about the story of Jesus’ death on the cross.  Depending on their age read it from a children’s Bible or in the Bible Matthew 27:27-56, Mark 15:21-38, Luke 23:26-49.   After explaining it, sit down together and make this craft.  It could give your child time to process and ask questions about Jesus’ death.

This could also be used as a Sunday school craft.  It would probably be best for kids ranging from 6-8 years old. Thank you Catholic Icing for this great idea.

If you like what you read, check out our children’s book, Hooked on the Book, on this website.  It is great for parents because it provides the Big Story of God’s wonderful plan for His children in all 66 books in the Bible including colorful illustrations, rhymes and a surprise on every page.
