Kid's Easter Sunday lesson: the lily helps children understand the resurrection

A lily for each child

 

Easy to make, beautiful all paper Easter Lily (Easter Lilly)


and

 


Whether you call this Sunday Easter or Resurrection Sunday, both celebrate that "He is Risen." He is risen indeed!

There are many significances of the lilly relating to Jesus you can discuss while making your lily. Or talk about point 2 as you distribute the materials and then read the resurrection story of the empty tomb while they make the lily.

1. The white Easter lily is thought of as pure - sinless like Jesus.
2. The lily bursts into bloom in the spring. In many places in the world it is a "Perennial" meaning it looks like it has died-off in the ground in the fall (autumn) , but comes back to life again in the spring to bloom again. This is something like the resurrection Jesus promises to us and what happened to him.
3. The lily is one of the flowers Jesus talked about - and how beautiful are the Lilies of the field.

Hardly any coloring in this project. Mostly cut, glue and put together.

Aside: There is also a Lycoris squamigera known as Resurrection Lily that comes up in early summer with just long leaves and dies down but springs up (more than 2 feet tall!) later in the season with just flowers- usually pink .
