An idea for lent

A friend found this on her Yahoo group and e-mailed it to me!

You need toothpicks for this project.

4 cups of flour/ 1 cup of salt. Mix enough water to make a stiff
clay. Roll 3 long ropes, loosely braid them. Form braid into a
circle and stick toothpicks (which represents the thorns) loosely in
it throughout the entire crown. Bake at 350 for an hour or until it
is dry and light brown. For each sacrifice that a child (or )
makes/does he takes out a "thorn." This is a good time to explain to
the child that sin brings additional pain on Jesus' suffering and
good works can comfort Him and show
our love for Him. The goal should be to remove all "thorns" from the
crown by Easter. Once the thorns are removed, glue brightly colored
beads where the thorns once were and if you'd like paint the crown.
This makes a beautiful Easter Sunday center piece with a great story
to share with your guests.
