Easter is coming soon - this year is is on March 27, 2016.
Use this fine motor Easter cross craft activity to teach your kids about the true meaning of Easter and work on those important fine motor skills too!
You will need:
- Cardboard(we recycled a piece of cardboard)
- String(we used wine red, fitting right?)
- Optional heart
Cut a cross out of the cardboard. The bigger, the better.
Cut some slits all around the cross. I made my slits 1cm apart.
Your child can now turn the string around the cross in any way, making sure it goes into the slits:
Go all around the cross, securing the loose ends by pushing it under the string at the back.
Add another piece of string to hang it up and attach a heart to the middle of the cross.
Doesn't it make a pretty Easter decoration?
I love crafts that are fun to make, pretty, teaching (fine motor skills) and focus on what matters Jesus!
