This cross is a fun, simple and FREE activity to create at Bible camp, while sitting at a campfire, or on a nature walk. It's also great for Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha's Feast day (July 14)
All you need: (all free!!)
- two sticks (one shorter - one longer)
- a long stem of green grass. (about 1 to 2 feet long)
You could use twine if you wish.
Carefully tear off the grass blades from the grass stem.
Cris-cross the two sticks so they are in the shape of a cross.
Place the long grass stem behind the cris-crossed sticks.
Leave about 3 to 4 inches to use to tie a knot when finished.
Wrap the long end around the cris-cross sticks about 3 times.
Then switch directions and wrap it around the opposite corners 3 times.
Take both grass stem ends and knot them together.
Use a knot like you use when you start to tie your shoe.
Use this knot two or three times.
Break off the extra stem.
It's great for bored kids on a camping trip!
Hope you can use this idea!
