"Lamb of God" Cross Craft Kit
Great for our older group
This was good for our 4-6 grade group. They finished it in 20 minutes and it was age appropiate in appearance. I think age 5 would be young to handle the little pieces. Helpers would have to be doing it for them which takes away from the advantage of doing a craft!

The small pearls are almost impossible to glue onto the foam. They are small, hard to hold in place. Think this would be difficult for children. However, the project looks nice without the pearls.

Beautiful, but for Older Children
The crosses looked beautiful when finished, but trying to do this with a 2nd Grade Sunday School class was extremely difficult and frustrating for the class because none of the small pieces have adhesive backing. If they had, i would give the craft 5 starts. Glue dots were not approporiate; Trying to glue all of the small pieces with regular white glue - a nightmare. Hot glue is the only efficient way to construct these crosses in a short time period - and that means younger children need 1:1 adult assistance.

Cute but fiddly
We used this as an Easter craft for 48 kindergartners. The craft took a long time for each child to complete (about 15 minutes) and one/one assistance was required for several steps. It took all morning with 6 helpers to complete the crosses. Preassembly of attaching the satin string was required - we tied knots at each end and stapled it on the the base cross piece. With the students, first we glued foam cross pieces together, then assembled lambs, then 4 flowers for the ends of the cross, then added beads. 2 crosses arrived damaged and some bags had extra beads, others had beads stuck together. The beads were hard to work with and we regretted using them. Overall, the finished product for Lamb of God crosses were cute and the kids loved them.
