This is an easy craft that boys like. I’ve used this in Hobby Club and at a Sunday School Class party. Preparation: My dad used scrap wood to cut out crosses and then he burned lots and lots of matches to create this craft. He also drilled a hole in one side for easy hanging on a nail.
Supplies: Brown quick-drying paint, glue, burnt matches
I’ve used this craft for several different groups and they all liked making this.
The kids put their name on the side with the hole (the back) and then paint the front and sides of the cross. Wait for the paint to dry.
Then starting at the intersection, glue four match halves in the shape of a cross by breaking four matches in half. Use the halves without the tip that burns.
Then glue on the matches in groups of 9 allowing a little space between each group so they are spaced evenly on the cross. Just need to make sure you get the glue on the cross all the way to the edges and glue one group at a time.
