How You & Your Kids Can Make This Handprint Easter Lily Bouquet of Flowers : Easter Crafts for Your Children
Easter is not so far away anymore so I thought that I would share with you an adorable Easter lily flower bouquet craft for young children and preschoolers … even older children will enjoy it. With just a few craft materials that are probably already around your house, you will be able to make cute Easter Lilies with your child’s own handprints. Not only will this be a fun arts and crafts activity, but it can also be a keepsake to keep forever. You will be surprised at how fast your little one’s hands grow when you look back at past crafts activities. Have fun.
CRAFTS MATERIALS NEEDED
- Chenille Stems / AKA Pipe Cleaners in the following colors: 1 yellow, 3 green
- Chenille Stem or Pipe Cleaner for ribbon, or curling ribbon
- Crayon, pencil or magic marker
- White heavy construction paper
1 – Trace your child’s hand onto the white paper with a crayon or pencil or magic marker. Then cut out as many hands as you want for the lily blooms.
2 – Roll the paper handprint vertically to form a funnel shape. When this is complete then secure the side with clear tape.
3 – Now you should roll each paper hand’s finger down to form the curls of each flower bloom.
4 – Now it is time to cut the yellow chenille stem / pipe cleaner to approx 3 inches each. Now loosely bend the yellow piece to form a ‘U’ shape. Wrap the top of one of the green pipe cleaners at the bottom of the ‘U’. Curl the ends of the yellow pipe cleaner to form the center of the flower’s bloom.
5 – Insert the completed green Lily stem into the center of the flower’s bloom and pull through.
6 – Gather the Lilies / flowers and wrap the pink pipe cleaner once around the stems to fasten together . Then make one loop for the ribbon and wrap around, repeat for 2nd loop.
7 – These make great surprises for MOM on Mother’s Day or for an Easter Decoration.
This is what the completed crafts project looks like. Enjoy and Happy Easter!
