This craft is very easy to make and also inexpensive. The total cost was about $12.00.

I started with a piece of wood, which a dear friend gave me, and hot glued 14 glass votive candles on it.

Then I printed black and white images of the 14 Stations of the Cross. The kids cut them and used a glue stick to paste them on the glass votives.

We light all 14 candles. After we read each station, we blow out a candle, and when we get to the last station, the room is dark and somber. It has made meditating on the stations very real to us.

For the little ones, I found these printable Stations of the Cross coloring pages.

This website has online Stations of the Cross for children.

This is a great chidren’s book: The Story of the Cross: The Stations of the Cross for Children
