C: Easy to Make CLAY Crosses Using Homemade Dough

These crosses were made by kiddos in the Kindergarten/1st Grade Class

These crosses were made by kiddos in the Kindergarten/1st Grade Class.

Homemade clay is easy to make, inexpensive, and can be used in a variety of crafts and art projects. And there are many recipes available, even gluten-free ones. Since my daughter wasn’t participating and no one else is gluten intolerant, I used wheat flour.

I recently made up a salt, four dough for the kiddos in our Sunday program at church. I used 2 cups flour, ½ cup salt, and 1 cup water. I ran out of white flour so I used up some old wheat pastry flour (that I was afraid to use for baking). It made the crosses look like they were made out of stone. I think it was because of the flecks of wheat in the flour.

These are some of the crosses from the 4th/5th Grade class.

These are crosses made by Gavin (5th Grader).

Previously when making this salt dough clay, I’ve used food dye to colour it. Gail Bartel (from That Artist Woman) suggests using acrylic paints. So I tried that. I like using the acrylics better than food dye.

  • There is a wider range of colours.
  • And the paint didn’t stain my hands, counter, or clothes. Yes, I can get that messy!

The clay was successfully used by the preschool to 5th graders to make crosses.

I love how each cross is so distinctly different. These are made from another student in the 4th/5th grade class.

I love how each cross is so distinctly different. These 4 crosses are made by Eliana (4th grade).

The bead and clay cross instructions and examples from Gail are found here.

 We will make these again next year.

  • We might make some of them into magnets.
  • And I will test to see if these would hold up as a rear view mirror decoration.

The Tomb is Empty

Picture #1: When we visited the Tomb (July 2009) it was empty.

Picture #2: It was empty on Easter morn too!

Picture #3: This is the view out of the tomb. Nothing to see inside, but because of Jesus’ Resurrection, there is plenty of life outside.

The View Into the Tomb

Can you see the “face” in the rock formation? Look straight up from the back window of the truck.That’s the nose and eyes are up further.  On top is where Jesus is said to have been crucified.

This is the real view looking into the tomb of Jesus (one of the supposed spots). On the Saturday after Jesus’ death the stone would have still been in front of the entrance.

 

This is the stone that goes in front of the entrance to the Tomb.

See the channel where the stone rolled?
