|Jesus’ words in this passage about carrying your cross have to be up there with some of his most famous sayings. While the focus of this passage could be that Peter gets it wrong, it could also be about this famous instruction. This craft pictures just that, a walking Jesus dragging a cross behind him. It’s a really simple craft and the only time consuming part is backing it onto thick card.|
|To make this craft you will need the printout, a pair of scissors, a stick (chopstick is ideal), a spit pin, an awl (or something to poke a hole) some tape and some glue
