This is the third day of my 12 Days of Resurrection Crafts series.
Day three from the Resurrection Eggs Easter craft comes from Mark 14:32, and is represented by praying hands.
A relatively simple craft, we started out with different colors of paper, some cardstock and some just colored printer paper. It was folded in half, pressed down well, and I placed the pinky side of my child’s hands along the fold. I then traced around the closed hand (verses an open-fingered hand) and cut along the traced lines.
Open the hands to write, stick a typed up prayer, or just to keep as a reminder to pray.As I have three children in various stages of their own Christian walk, and technical savvy, my oldest wanted his prayer typed out, cut and glued onto the inside of his praying hands.
Anyway you do it, even if it’s like the three-year old who didn’t want anything written in his praying hands, the little hands are a great reminder to pray, just as Jesus did in the Garden. You bet these little hands will go into the saved paperwork for this mommy…. =)
