At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light. And the burdens of my heart rolled away. It was there by faith I received my sight. And now I am happy all the day.
This hymn by Isaac Watts sums up the power of Easter in three simple words. At the cross. It’s empty! But what He did for us there – what He endured – blows me away.
As you teach your children about the true story of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection on the third day, I hope you will enjoy these sweet stained glass coloring pages of the cross, and bookmarks of the cross too! We printed each coloring page and colored them with markers. The cross bookmarks were cut out and then laminated. They would make wonderful gifts! One of them has a blank spot to hand write a name.
These fun pages can be colored and framed as gifts, mounted on card stock and placed in bedrooms, or colored with markers and laminated and hung in windows to catch the sun. (That’s what both of my girls do!)
