  • Materials


    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.

  • Make sure your hand is on the fold


  • Draw round your hand with the pencil, keeping your fingers together.

  • Hand outline


  • Cut round the outline through BOTH layers of card at once. Small children may need help with this step!

  • Hand cut out


  • Fill in details of fingers and thumbs with a marker pen or a black felt tip.

  • Fingers drawn in


  • 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.

  • Prayer written inside


  • Turn the hands back over and, using your imagination and the contents of your craft box, decorate them as you wish!

  • With feathers, pompoms and Easter stickers


  • The can now be stood in your home, ready for quiet reflections and family prayers.



  • 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.
