Younger Ones: Use painter’s tape to make crosses on heavyweight paper. Paint over the crosses with watercolor paints or crayons. Once the paint has dried, peel off the tape to reveal a cross on their paintings.
Older Ones: Brainstorm some of the things that separate us from God. List each one on a sheet of paper. Discuss how our sin separates us from God because He is holy. Draw a large cross over the sins listed on the paper. Talk about how Jesus died to take our sin upon Himself and faced the punishment we deserve.
