Holy Week Happenings: Tuesday: Water Color Crucifix & Growing Easter Grass {post 2 of 3}

I laid out my "plans" for Holy Week in a prior post HERE and on Tuesday, we did some artwork that I saw last year for the first time on Chris' blog at Campfires and Cleats.  I thought her kids did a beautiful job and I made a note to myself that I would try this with my own children this year.

This year, Tiffany at Family at the Foot of the Cross made the Water Color Crucifix with her children and she used Nancy's crucifix printable from Do Small Things with Love to complete her pictures.  So I gave this version a try with my cupcakes and I'm so glad I did!

As instructed in Nancy's post, my kids (and a neighbor friend) first colored over the black crucifix printable with a black or white crayon so the water color paint wouldn't make the black print ink run.

Then they got to work on using their own creativity to make their water color art! 

And this is what they created!  So beautiful, I think!

On Tuesday, we also finally burned dried up palms and planted grass seeds to grow our own Easter grass that we like to do each year.
I was a little late doing this so I doubt I'll have Easter grass like this in time for Easter so it's a good thing the Easter season lasts longer than just one day!
