Bouquet of Easter Lilies
With the use of recycled material and a few purchased pipe cleaners, my small Sunday school class made Easter Lilies to give out or take home for their parents.
For 10 kids you will need 2 packages of green pipe cleaners, 1 pack of green construction paper, a couple glue sticks and 6 cardboard egg cartons(these need to be cut up prior to class).
I had the older kids cutting out lily leaves from the green construction paper and then helping the younger kids glue the leaves onto the green pipecleaners.
While the older kids were cutting leaves, the younger kids used markers to colour their lilies. I then helped punch holes in the egg carton flower tops , threaded the pipecleaner into the hole and put a knot in it to keep from falling out.
All the kids had a great time doing this. While we worked, we discussed the lesson of the day.
At the end of the lesson, all had 2 or 3 flowers to take or give away and those that were made but not taken were used to decorate our hall for the after service fellowship.
