Bible Verse Cross Art

bible verse cross art 1This project uses a cross drawn over a puzzle pieces page. We, God’s people, are the puzzle pieces joined together in communion with Jesus Christ, also a piece of the puzzle.  By His suffering and death on the cross, He assured us of life everlasting.  We help each other live in Christ by living good lives and being good examples to each other.  We are taught that we are loved by God and don’t need to be troubled or afraid.


  • White construction paper
  • Colored background paper
  • Puzzle page 1 (Pattern)
  • Puzzle page 2 (Pattern)
  • Colored markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
  • Black marker


  1. Print out copies of the puzzle on the white construction paper.
  2. Choose three or four colors for the background, and three or four different colors for the cross.
  3. Color the background spaces, being careful to not color any of the areas in the cross.  No two joined spaces should be the same color
  4. If you want to glue the art to a 9” x 12” colored sheet of construction paper, trim the puzzle sheet to  8 ½” x 11”
  5. Write a bible verse around the white edges of the picture.  Either write the words using a black marker or use colored markers.

    Mollie, Anna and Carolyn. Thank you all for your comments. Mollie, one way that might help when coloring, is to use the warm colors that you’re using for the cross, and make a little mark of those colors inside each of the spaces that will be given the color. Then use the cool colors in the spaces around the cross. The little marks of color inside the cross spaces will be a reminder to not color those spaces with the cool colors.

    We used the Bible verse cross patterns in JR. church with our weekly verse, the kids seemed to enjoy it. It is harder than it looks, (and harder to color correctly than you might think, keep your focus on it! 🙂
