Favorite Cross Crafts:

christiancrafters.com- Mosaic Cross
Easy cross necklace/magnet that all kids can make.

crafts.kaboose.com- Stained Glass Window
I make this craft in the shape of a cross by folding one sheet of black construction paper in half and tracing a cross in the center on the top sheet. I then cut the cross out of both sheets of paper for the students. We then follow the rest of the directions given here.

christiancrafters.com- The Colors of Christ Cross
Neat tip at the bottom for younger students.

Great post! There is a lot coming up in September, but I feel like there's SOOO much coming up for October! I'm going to have to start posting every day! (which, by the way, I SERIOUSLY don't have the time for!) Lol!
