Every year during Easter celebrations, I love to have the children craft lilies. These are remarkably easy and create a nice display that the wee beasties are proud of. If you need something to keep your little ones' hands busy for a few minutes- this is the craft for you!
To make this simple Easter craft, you will need the following:
white or pastel colored paper
green paper (optional)
green pipe cleaners
colored pipe cleaners (optional)
Now that we have everything, let's get crafting! Here is what you do:
Trace your hand print on one side of the white paper. I do this so you can fold the paper and get two hand prints at one time. Lazy, but when you cut for 10 children it saves time!
Curl the finger tips back using a pencil for a guide.
Roll the palm of the hand into a cone shape. Make sure you leave a space big enough for a pipe cleaner to fit through at the base. Secure with clear tape. Young children may need some help.
Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Take a long green pipe cleaner and wrap a small piece at the top. Curl. I ran out of green pipe cleaners, but the children didn't mind. These will be your stems.
Insert your stem into the cone part of the flower.
Here is the finished product! Display in a vase or give a bouquet to a friend.
