Two types of crosses can be made:
* Fun Foam Cross - Using art foam, cut out a basic cross shape for the background. Then, using other colors of art foam (available at any craft or discount store), cut smaller pieces of "mosaic" and apply them to the cross background to create an overall mosaic effect. A fun variation of this project might be to make the cross background, and then apply small "mosaic" tiles when the child is observed being helpful, loving, or of service around the home. Can your child fill the cross with love "tiles" by the end of Lent?
* Crayon "Stained Glass" Cross - Have your child cut two identical cross shapes from waxed paper. Using old or broken crayons and a dull kitchen knife, scrape the crayons to create shavings of various colors. Spread the crayons on one of the pieces of waxed paper in a desired pattern. Then place the second waxed paper cross over the top of the first cross and the shavings. An adult should complete the following step: Using a warm iron, press the two pieces of waxed paper together. Find a sunny spot to hang your creation and remember to offer a prayer of love and thanksgiving each time you lay eyes on your beautiful cross.

Recipe for Easter Brownies
(Family Features) - Put a new spin on Easter; serve brownies in bunny and egg shapes,- an easy way to make a yummy impression.
Simply bake a pan of brownies using your favorite mix or recipe. Cool completely, then smooth on fudge icing. Bunnies and eggs will practically hop out of the pan when you use comfort-grip cutters. These easy-grip stainless steel cutters have extra deep sides, perfect for cutting shapes from thick desserts like brownies, sheet cakes, fudge and crispy rice treats.
Decorate brownies using the pastel palette of the season. Create cute bunny faces by piping icing to make eyes, ears, muzzle and tongue. Finish the eyes with candy-coated chocolate pupils and add a jelly bean nose.
Brownie Bunnies will love sharing the Easter basket with colorful Egg-stra Special Brownies adorned with pink and blue sugar stripes and accents of confetti sprinkles. Everyone will look forward to these springtime treats in their baskets, so hop to it!
