Hand print lilies for Mother's Day

It’s Mothers Day and I have a lovely easy craft to share with you which is perfect for little hands – let me know if you try it for yourselves!

You will need:

  • pencil
  • scissors
  • white and green paper
  • straws
  • yellow pipe cleaners
  • sticky tape


Hand print lilies for Mother’s Day

First trace around your child’s hand on a sheet of white paper. My toddler adores using his hands in crafts and this really made him giggle for some reason. We drew around his hand four times and then I cut them out.

Carefully curl the top of the paper hand around a straw, then fix the bottom of the hand to a straw using sticky tape.

Cut a leaf from the sheet of green paper and fix to the straw beneath the hand using sticky tape.

Then cut a small piece of yellow pipe cleaner and fold in half. Insert into the top of the straw and slightly curl the ends. That’s it! Make a bunch, arrange in a glass and admire your sweet flowers.
