The Crosses on Calvary

I derived this craft from a project that Cheyanne's pre school class did. I thought it was a perfect Easter craft to share.

We used: an Egg carton cup, playdough (or clay), 6 craft sticks, scissors, brown and gold paint, brushes, Easter grass (or craft moss) and glue.
This can be done in so many different ways, so just use what you have around the house.

Cheyanne painted 4 craft sticks brown and 2 gold.
The 4 brown craft sticks, I cut with scissors so they would make smaller crosses. Round off the edges a bit.
Glue the sticks together making crosses.

Fill the egg cup with playdough and glue on the grass.
Poke the crosses into the dough.
I also cut out an egg shape from construction paper and glued the egg cup on it.

I love this craft. I was looking for something to do with my boys when they get home from school tomorrow (its early dismissal).
I've copied several of your crafts and done them with my boys but never commented.
Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas.
