KJV Bible Scriptures on Jesus Crucifixion
You should read John ch.19-ch.20 out loud to the children so they will know what happened to Jesus when he was crucified. You could pick a different scripture if that is not the one your looking for. Once your finish reading this to them, then sum it up in your own words on what happened so they will understand. On the coloring page just write the scripture you used on the coloring page. The same with the card craft, just use the scripture you used and have the child write it in the card.
Tell how Jesus was brought before Pilate and Pilate had the soldiers beat Jesus. The soldiers put a crown of thorns on his head and put a purple robe on him and spit on him and hit him and mocked him. They were very cruel to Jesus. After Jesus had been beaten Pilate brings him forth to show the people and told them he found no fault in him. The people didn't want to hear that. The chief priests and officers saw him and they cried out- CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM! They hated Jesus! Pilate said, You take him and kill him because I do not find any wrong doing in this man!
So to sum it all up Jesus carried his own cross up to the hill of Golgotha which means the place of a skull. And there he was nailed on a cross along with two other men. The mens legs were broken but Jesus legs was not. Jesus was speared in the side. Jesus was taken and layed in a new tomb and on the third day he rose again.
Let the children know that Jesus did all this so we could go free from our sins. It would be a great opportunity to present the message of salvation to them after this and let them know that Jesus can wash them clean from all their sins and save their soul. (a salvation message is good anytime, not just in this one lesson! Anytime you have a new child come to class you should always let them know.)

John 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
