Cross Craft for Preschoolers- A Bible Craft for the Letter C

Check out all of my faith-based Easter crafts and recipies for kids here!

We are continuing on our Bible Alphabet Crafts series, and this week we made crosses for the letter C. As I’ve mentioned before, my preschool class is very young (1 and 2 year olds) so I’m always looking for very simple things for them to do, and I came up with this:

cross craft for kids

Supplies Needed:

  • White Card Stock
  • Blue Painter’s Tape
  • Washable Tempera Paint (preferably colors that mix well)
  • Wide Paint Brush (I like to use foam brushes with preschoolers)
  • Disposable paper plates (to put the paint on)
  • Table Cover

Cover the table. Give each child a piece of white card stock, and put a cross in the middle of it with blue painter’s tape.

Provide the kids with a wide paint brush, and put paint on a paper plate. Try to use colors that will mix well (colors that won’t just turn into brown when they mix it). Here are some possible combinations:

  • Blue, Yellow, Green (what we used)
  • Blue, Red, Purple
  • Red, Yellow, Orange

Let the kids go to town painting!

Monthly Liturgical Membership

Catholic Liturgical Monthly Membership

Perfect for families! Each month you gain access to printable activity pages, crafts, home altar pieces, and more.
Never has living the liturgical year been so easy and affordable!

When they are finished, you just pull off the tape to reveal the cross! (You can do this before or after they dry- it doesn’t really matter as long as you’re careful if the paint is wet.)

These were super easy and fun, and would be a great craft for Easter, and would even make a great Sunday School craft for kids!
