This recipe will make a ball of dough the size of what you see in the picture above. 

You will need 2 large popsicle stickes to make your cross.

You will get about 6 crosses out of this dough recipe.

I made little round balls and handed out two dough balls to each child along with the

2 popsicle sticks and a paper plate for them to lay it on while they were making these.

I had the kids cover both popsicle sticks with the two dough balls.

You want your dough to be thick on the cross, otherwise you

will not be able to get your objects to stick down in the dough.

You don't have to cover the back if you don't want to.

Once you have covered both popsicle sticks with dough.

Then lay one of the popsicle sticks on top of the other one to

make a cross shape just like you see in the picture.

Now you can press your 10 Jelly beans into the dough.

Here is the finished Jelly Bean Prayer Cross! These might take a few days to dry hard like a

rock depending on where you live and how much heat is getting to it. If you lay them out in the sun they will harden faster. 

Be aware that the Jelly bean colors will bleed into the dough. It will make it look petty neat though. It will be a colorful Jelly bean cross. 

Before it sets up and hardens you could always add some yarn in the back of the cross so you could hang it up when it dries. 

These would make cute gifts for kids to make for Easter and give to their family as a gift from them.

Add a little note to go with it that says, "Jesus Is Alive".
