I love crafting–but you know what I love even more, MEANINGFUL CRAFTING. I love creating something, either by myself or with my children, that actually means something or symbolizes something larger than us.
And what is more powerful than the cross? Nothing.
Because I am always on the look-out for crafts that will re-enforce our Christian faith I had a great time rounding up these 49 crafts that celebrate the cross. The variety of crafts and projects here is quite wide. I added a few more to-do projects to my own list and I am excited to tackle other crafts on this list with the kids.
The cross really is such an amazing symbol. I hope that this round-up of projects leads to some fun crafting but, more importantly, some meaningful learning and conversations in your family. And, if you are looking for more ideas, check out the Big Book of Bible Crafts. It’s our favorite go-to resource for Christian crafting and is packed full of ideas that are simple and require very little in terms of supplies.
Thanks for being here and, as always, if looking leads to pinning make sure to pin from the original post, not from here.
