Talk About Clothing
Say: The Bible tells us that God makes the beautiful colors flowers wear. It’s like he dresses them in beautiful clothes.
Describe your best-looking item of clothing. Make sure you share the colors and what makes it look great.
Ask: • Tell me about your best shirt, pants, shoes, or other clothes. Encourage kids to share about their favorite clothing, including colors and decorations.
Say: Let’s make some special flowers. We can even dress them up with beautiful colors like we see on real flowers!
Clothe the Lilies
Use a washable marker to trace kids’ hands onto construction paper. Older preschoolers can do this on their own. Give kids small strips of crepe paper in a variety of colors. Encourage kids to tear the strips into small pieces.
As kids tear the crepe paper, ask adult or teen helpers to cut out kids’ handprints. Older preschoolers can cut out their own handprints.
Have kids use glue sticks to “dress” their handprints with crepe paper pieces.
Then help each child tape a chenille wire to the back of each handprint and roll it into a flower. Secure the “flowers” with tape.
Say: We can put these beautiful lilies somewhere in our houses to remind us that God takes care of the flowers and gives them what they need to look so beautiful. God takes care of us, too. We don’t have to worry about anything.
