The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday, which is only about ten days from today. I’ve been thinking about this Stations of the Cross project for some time and wanted to get it published here in time for the kids to make their own “Way of the Cross” circle.
I’ve made two templates for the outside circle: One that is already designed and a blank one so the students can design their own circle. The beautiful Stations of the Cross pictures are found on the LISTVERSE website. I’ve resized the pictures for this project, but I’m sure you’ll find many other ideas for using the larger pictures.
- White card stock or construction paper
- Circle, The Way of the Cross (Pattern)
- Circle, blank (Pattern)
- Circle, with printed stations (Pattern)
- Stations of the Cross, resized for circle (Pattern)
- Colored pencils
- Scissors and glue stick
- Paper fastener
I didn’t do it this way, but I’m sure it would have been better had I colored the circles before cutting them out.
1. If using the blank circle (with the slot), design the circle and color with colored pencils.
2. Use colored pencils to color the printed stations circle and the slotted circle.
3. Carefully cut the Stations of the Cross from the printed page and glue them above the correct numbered station. The top of the picture should be close to the top of the circle, above the written station.
4. Carefully cut around the circles. Make a small hole in the center of the circles. Attach the slotted circle over the printed Stations circle with a paper fastener.
