Celebrate “Día de la Cruz” With Kids- Cross Craft Ideas

May 3 is the day that St. Helen discovered the location of the true cross! This day is celebrated in Latin America as “Día de la Cruz” or “The Day of the Cross” in English. I think celebrating this feast day is a great way to keep celebrating the miracle of the cross through the full Easter season!

Here are some fun cross crafts you can make with your kids in celebration.

Check out this salt cross painting for kids. So fun and easy!

This oil pastel resist cross project is super cute and easy!

Take a wooden crafting cross and give it any one of these looks!

This cross craft is so cheap and easy– all you need is card stock, markers, and washi tape. I love these!

    Beautiful ideas! We were inspired to try a craft with a group of moms and toddlers…we taped off the cross image and let the kids go to town painting the canvas. We love not only the way they turned out (see yourself in the link) but in the sense of community and fellowship we created in doing this project all together. http://enterundermyroof.blogspot.com/2013/09/activity-feast-of-exaltation-of-holy.html
