The real reason for celebrating Easter often gets lost with the bunnies, eggs, chicks and Easter baskets. I’m not against all those fun things, however, let’s get across the real message of Easter, too. This Easter Cross Puzzle Piece Craft is an easy reminder of what Easter is really about. This craft is simple enough to use for kids’ Sunday School classes, Wednesday church activities or just for a special craft at home.

The materials used are inexpensive and easy to come by simply using mis-matched puzzle pieces. Planning ahead involves spray painting the puzzle pieces. Depending on the size of the cross, plan on about 25 pieces per cross.

Materials:

2 sticks per person

I used craft sticks that I had on hand. They were 8 inches long. I cut the horizontal stick to 5 inches.) Crafts sticks may or may not be painted. Popsicle sticks work, too! If you are doing this cross on just a piece of paper, no sticks are needed!

Step 3

Add puzzle pieces to the horizontal stick and repeat so that each area has double pieces.  Try to use the border pieces with a straight edge on each of the ends as the final piece.

Glue onto a piece of cardstock and add the words. (Print the words out on computer, cut and add.)

Talk about how God loved us so much that He gave His son to die as a payment for our sin. We have the gift of salvation by accepting what Jesus did for us and living for Him! It is not a “puzzle”, it is a gift!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son.  Whoever believes in Him, has  life everlasting!

Display the Easter Cross Puzzle Piece Craft to remind you of the free gift of salvation that Jesus offers to us!

Happy Easter!
