Sand Cross Bible Story Art for Little Kids

It’s that time of the month again. We’re sharing what we’ve been up to with Experience God. This month, we’re learning about how God is the only God and our memory verse is from Isaiah 45:14.

Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other God. 

Today’s activity was definitely one of the little guy’s favorites this month. You know, because there was sand involved. As if that wasn’t already kinda obvious, right?

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

I love having lots of fun bible activities already planned out for us. Experience God is great as a daily bible curriculum or even just to use on rainy days. And this month’s Sand Cross Bible Story Art was of course no exception.

What you’ll need

  • Cross Cutout
  • Glue
  • Colored Sand

Here’s how to do it

Ask: What is more valuable than money

  • Jesus wandered in the wilderness for 40 days and was tempted by Satan.
  • Jesus knows how it feels to be hungry and to feel pain. Because he suffered, he understands how to help us when we suffer.
  • Using the glue, decorate the cross with sand.
  • Remember that when you are hungry, alone, or wish you had something that you didn’t, Jesus understands.
  • Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Explain: God is bigger than our suffering and will make us strong in the hard times.

The little guy used his Kwik Stix to decorate the cross cutout. And when he was finished, he added the sand.

First, he squeezed some glue onto his project and then sprinkled a mix of blue and red sand.

I’m definitely loving the combination of pink, blue, and red. Talk about awesome!

And this particular shade of blue is so pretty. I’m glad that it was included with our supplies this month.

Each of the Experience God child packs include most of the supplies that we need for our bible story art for the month.

The red was actually left over from our Blast Off to Space theme. I kept it because I figured the little guy would eventually put it to good use and he did.

He definitely had a blast with this activity. Although I’m really not surprised.
