Yarn Crosses

Have the kids make Yarn Crosses and hang them up for a decoration or add some yarn for a necklace.  This craft is perfect for the Easter season and will make a good Sunday School craft or a craft for Vacation Bible School.

Trivia: No one knows what wood was used to make Jesus cross. The trees that may have been used are Olive or Cedar, both of which are common in the area. The legend of the Dogwood tree is probably inaccurate because of the size of the tree.
