This project is easy and if you are looking for a striking bulletin board, this fills that need! (Click the picture above to get a Google doc of the project!)
The first thing I do is teach my students the meaning of the colors:
BLACK - We all sin.
RED - Jesus died.
WHITE - Jesus wiped our sins away.
GREEN - Jesus gives us new life.
YELLOW - We have new life in Heaven with Jesus.
To do the project, children trace the cross onto purple construction paper and glue onto a half sheet of black construction paper. Children cut small pieces of black, red, white, green, and yellow construction paper and glue onto the cross in a mosaic pattern. Glue the words onto the other side of the black paper. Voila! An easy craft with a BIG meaning!
