Here’s how this activity is introduced/described:
This is a simple and amazing way to make a cross that I learned when I was a child. There’s a grown-up version of this too, but it is omitted here. Most children will want to make many and show their friends and family this “magic trick cross” . Of course, it isn’t magic, and it isn’t a trick, but take a look and you may smile!
I like the fact that this Web site provides very detailed instructions for this activity along with pictures to guide you through, step-by-step.
