This is a simple way to remember all that Jesus has done in and through the cross! We will be making a bracelet that tells a story through colour.

Materials Needed:

Elastic
Coloured beads

Get the children to make the bracelet for themselves. (Simply put enough beads onto the elastic string and tie the ends together, as fits the wrist!)

You will need 6 different colours. Here is the order of the colours and what each colour means:

Black – Everyone has Sinned!
Red – The Blood of Jesus!
White – Cleansed White as Snow!
Green – Grow like a tree! (Be Fruitful)
Blue – Holy Spirit is the Water
that makes the Tree Grow!
Gold – Home is Heaven, where
there are streets of Gold!

(Teach them this story, getting them to repeat what the colours mean.)

Lastly, let the children take home their own bracelets. This will be very special to them and each time they look at their bracelets they will be reminded of what Jesus has done.
