The Meaning Behind the Handprint Easter Lily Craft
Lilium longiflorum, or Easter Lillies are a flowering plant native to Japan and Taiwan. In Luke 12:27 Jesus asks us to consider the Lillies, making them a popular symbol in Christianity. Specifically they symbolize purity, new life, and the Resurrection of Christ. With their white color and spring bloom, they are perfect to illustrate the pure and new life we find in Christ. They are also symbolic of St. Joseph and his chastity!
I think my favorite symbolism for the Easter Lily is in relation to Christ’s Agony in the garden. A pious legend tells us that when Christ resurrected, Easter Lilies grew in the same spots where His Precious Blood fell just days before. How beautiful! Christ makes all things new!

Start by tracing those sweet little hands onto white paper!
Have or help your child cut them out.
Roll the bottom of the hand inward to create a cone shape. Glue along the edge by the thumb.
Roll each finger tip inwards tightly and then let it unfold to create the petals.
Cut your green pipe cleaner in half. Fold one half into leave and twist on. Insert into the flower.
Once the green pipe cleaner is inside attach the tiny piece of yellow pipe cleaner.
It is about 2 inches, by folding it in two and twisting it on.
All done! Now you have sweet Easter Lilies made with handprints.
A bouquet of all the children’s different sized hands would be beautiful! Decorate your home altar or prepare them as a Easter gift for the grandparents.
