Making beautiful Easter crosses

I got the idea for this simple, easy, beautiful Easter cross painting from Apples and ABCs.  We made these yesterday while my sister was visiting.

I have to tell you about my new favorite moment of all time: My son pointed to the freshly hung paintings on the window and yelled, “Jesus died on the cross for our sins! And he rose from the dead!”  And that. is what’s it’s all about.

I used paint tape to put a cross on white paper.

Wrote “He is Risen!” on them and they went to sponge painting!

They had different ideas of what artistic avenues they wanted to take.  John just wanted to make brown!

We peeled off the tape after they were dry and put in the window to let the sun shine through : )

Fun, easy, quick.  And Christ-centered.
