Theresa at catholickidsbulletin.blogspot.com will post a link to an activity sheet that coordinates with the Catholic Mass. There will be pictures and activities each week to help little kids understand and appreciate the Mass. Most weeks, she will also highlight a Saint whose feast day falls within that week or a liturgical symbol they can watch for at Mass.

To show that we are good Christians:
makingfriends.com- Faith bracelet craft. You can also make this in a simple version by just using one piece of chord and 6 different (black, red, white, blue, green, and yellow) colored beads.
christiancrafters.com- Colors of Christ Cross. Neat tip at the bottom for younger students.
crafts.kaboose.com- Beaded Cross Necklace
A very nice necklace for boys and girls. Be sure to make the string at least 36 inches long to fit over their heads. Craft cord can be used as well.
daniellesplace.com- Cross Crafts (several cross crafts listed)
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.
You can make these trees into fig trees:
