This is the fourth of the children's work activities during Lent and Easter. This time it's lent 3 and the reading is John 2:13-22 abut emptying the temple and knocking over the tables. As I was reading these verses it occurred to me that the tables would be simple wooden tables and that a good way to think about it with the kids would be to make plain wooden crosses like table legs and like the cross Jesus carried through the streets.
I printed out some fantastic images of wooden crosses for the kids
I also took some of my own simple wooden crosses
We talked about burning these crosses at pentecost but I said I'd get back to them about that and we'd talk more about what that's all about.
