Method
Fold your card in half. If it is stiff, then you may find scoring it lightly will help.

Place your hand on the card so that edge below your little finger is on the fold.

Turn the hands over and write a prayer inside. Older children may like to make up their own prayer or you could use a verse from a favourite Easter hymn.

Variations
Leave the outside of the hands undecorated but glue a Palm Cross on the inside left, opposite the prayer on the right, for a plain and simple Prayer Card.
Write a short prayer or blessing on the left inside and use the right inside to send an Easter Greeting to friends or family.
