In the Southern Nebraska Register there was an article title Stations of the Cross For Children. They suggested drawing out the stations of the cross in different ways. I drew them out on the sidewalk. The children loved running on the stations.
Then I made these on foam sheets. Then tied them together to make a cute flip book for their Mass kit.
This is what I did...
Station 1: Jesus is Condemned to Death. Draw a set of scales, tilted to one side to show the injustice of this sentence.
Station 2: Jesus accepts His cross. Draw a simple figure with a simple cross angled against one shoulder.
Station 3: Jesus falls for the first time. Draw an X to represented the spot where He fell with numeral 1.
Station 4: Jesus meets His mother. Draw a heart with a letter M inside to represent Mary.
Station 5: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry His cross. Draw two figures with the cross.
Station 6: Veronica wipes the face Jesus. Draw a droplet to represent tears and/or blood.
Station 7: Jesus falls for the second time. Draw an X to represent the spot where He fell with the numeral 2.
Station 8: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem. Draw several female figures.
Station 9: Jesus falls for the third time. Draw an X to represent the spot where He fell with a numeral 3.
Station 10: Jesus is stripped of His garments. Draw a shape of a shirt
Station 11: Jesus is nailed to the cross. Draw three nails
Station 12: Jesus dies on the cross. Simple figure on the cross.
Station 13: Jesus is taken down from the cross. Draw the figure lying next to an empty cross.
Station 14: Jesus is placed in the tomb. Draw a cave in a hillside.
