Cross of Victory: Flowers
I have to say, my MOST favorite part of our Cross of Victory celebration is watching the kids make a beautiful, flower-filled cross!
It all starts off by asking the children to bring some flowers – from the store or from their garden.
Then we have a wooden cross covered with chicken wire for our base.
Each child chooses a couple flowers….
Then wraps a paper towel around the stem.
Then they dunk the stem into some water — now the flower will stay fresh for several days.
Then they find a nice little spot that NEEDS their flower.
We have so many flowers, we make a second, free standing cross as well!
You should see how proud the children are on Easter morning to share THEIR cross!
We live and die; Christ died and lived! ~John Stott
