复活节 (Fùhuó jié / Easter) is the most important Christian celebration, and 圣诞节 / 聖誕節 (Shèngdàn jié/ Christmas) celebrates Jesus’ Birthday. For both Christmas and Easter, my daughter and I enjoy Washi Tape Cross crafts as personalized decorations in our house!
Easter is Resurrection Sunday, the return of Jesus Christ after the Crucifixion, his sacrifice for all of our sins. After reading Chinese Easter books, my daughter and I enjoyed making Washi Tape Crosses. We made 3 crosses to represent the 3 crosses at Calvary.
For Christmas, the Washi Tape Cross crafts are also a special family bonding activity.
Since they are easy to make, I also recommend them for Sunday School projects!

Easter, Christmas, and Sunday School: What you need to make a Washi Tape Cross Craft
- Washi tape
For those that are unfamiliar with washi tape, the tape is essentially like decorative masking tape. It is repositionable.
NOTE: Once we accidentally left blue washi tape on our quartz dining table, and it washed off with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
Easter, Christmas, and Sunday School: How to make a Washi Tape Cross Craft
- Draw cross shape on cardboard. Use a ruler to guide straight lines.
- Cut cardboard
- Cut washi tape a little longer than the width of the cross and wrap around the edges. If you cut it too short, it will not wrap well.
If you try this Washi Tape Cross activity for Easter, let us know! We are also always looking for more bible craft ideas, so please share any suggestions! Leave a comment or tag @CHALKAcademy on Instagram and Facebook!
