Cross Craft

materials needed for simple, fine motor cross craft

You will need:
  • Cardboard(we recycled a piece of cardboard)
  • String(we used wine red, fitting right?)
  • Scissors
  • Optional heart
cut a cross shape out of cardboard

Cut a cross out of the cardboard. The bigger, the better.

Cut some slits all around the cross. I made my slits 1cm apart.

wrap yarn around cardboard cross

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.

keep wrapping the cross ending on 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!
