Stations of the Cross (On the Sidewalk and with flashcards)

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.
