On Fridays during Lent we pray the Stations of the Cross together as a family (at 3 pm if possible). This year I saw a lot of other Catholic families making a Stations of the Cross banner and decided it would be a good project for our family to do together!
Rather than worrying about it being perfect, I decided to let everyone who wanted to participate get a job to do. Some of the kids were in charge of cutting, some got to glue, and some helped to put the stations on the twine string. The youngest helper was in charge of cutting out the prayers.
The materials we used were:
- The Stations of the Cross images and prayers found here: https://www.familyfeastandferia.com/printables/stations-of-the-cross-for-children/
- A burlap table runner cut in half, and then cut into banner flags
- Hole puncher
- Cotton twine
- Grapevine wreath
All of these supplies are available on Amazon.
Cutting the burlap with the scissors was a little messy, as was the glue leaking through the burlap. It also took a little bit of effort to punch the holes (I was in charge of this job after one of the children thought it was hard to do).
All in all though it was a fun and easy project that we all enjoyed doing! And now we have a beautiful visual to use as we pray the Stations of the Cross.
