The Three Crosses

For the last week, week and a half, we have been counting down to Easter Sunday. Each day we read a story about Jesus' days leading up to Easter and the kids get to open an Easter egg filled with a treat! We have also been doing crafts to go along with the stories. One day we made crosses out of popsicle sticks, another we decorated a paper Easter egg and so on. Today we fingerpainted over some tape in the shape of crosses. The whole idea is that when the paint dries, you peel off the tape and you will have a beautiful picture of the cross! The kids had a riot getting super messy and Will even squealed in delight as he got his hands full of paint:)
Getting started! Look at these hands! What a mess!The kids got an early Easter surprise - Dora's Egg Hunt movie!
