Watercolor Cross Cards for Easter

We enjoyed making these simple hand-painted cards
as we remember the cross of Jesus this week.


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Painter's tape (or masking tape)
  • Paints (we used watercolors)
  • Paintbrushes

  1. Cut the tape and stick on the paper to form a cross.
  2. Paint around the cross.
  3. Remove tape carefully and allow paint to dry.

I'm sharing our project at Kids Get Crafty and the Strut Your Stuff Link Party this week.
