Here's another simple Easter craft for kids. I first saw this Handprint Lilies Craft in Family Fun magazine. My preschooler has been very interested in crafts that use her handprints and feetprints, so I knew she'd like this one. We made a bouquet of three handprint lilies to use as easter decorations.
We made ours a little differently than the ones in family fun. We used construction paper and a green pipe cleaner.
Cut out a hand print from white construction paper. Curl the fingers of the hand around a pencil to make petals.
Cut out a double leaf shape from green construction paper and punch a hole in the center. Thread two pairs of leaves onto the pipe cleaner (the family fun example used a green straw).
Wrap the hand around the end of the green pipe cleaner and tape.
To make the yellow center, we scrunched up a scrap of yellow construction paper and stuck it inside the white flower. This was Maggie's favorite part.
Make a bend in the pipe cleaner underneath the green leaves so they don't slip down.
Enjoy your bouquet of Easter lilies!
