Lent is right around the corner and I am so excited to bring you this free how to draw video for Catholic kids! This is a video for step by step how to draw a Lenten cross. It’s a basic wooden cross with a purple swag which is the liturgical color for Lent. There is also a crown of thorns and a palm branch, both also symbols of Lent.

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!

This drawing would be perfect for making Lenten lapbooks or other resources for your kids this year! 

I often have people ask me about the markers I use, and they are Prismacolor markers. They are for artists, and a bit pricey, but I find them worth the price and  you can find some here. I have been using Prismacolor markers since I was 14 and I absolutely love them! 

You can also download a free version of the Lenten cross as a coloring page! This is perfect for kids that are too small to draw it or just don’t want to draw their own.
