Lilies symbolize hope and the miracle of new life. Celebrate the arrival of spring, or learn about Easter traditions, with these regal botanical beauties.
There are many Easter customs and spring festivals. The white lily symbolizes sweetness, purity and majesty. Invite students to discover more about the symbolism of these beautiful flowers in different cultures. Organize a variety of text and electronic resources for students to view during their investigation.
Find out what lilies look like by looking in botanical references. Lilies have six-part flowers (three petals and three sepals colored alike), six stamens, and a pistil. Using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a pattern of a 3-sided petal resembling a propeller. Students cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Use this to trace more petals and sepals. Cut them out.
Ask students to cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Using Crayola Oil Pastels, lightly color the inner part of the petals/sepals. Punch holes in the center.
For each flower, draw six long thin strips for stamens and another strip for a pistil. Color them on both sides and cut them out. Slide them through the center hole of the flowers. Insert a long chenille stick through each flower center and bend the top to hold it securely.
Students cut a paper cup in half lengthwise to make a flowerpot. Fit paper to cover the top of the cup. Decorate the flowerpot with colorful patterns. Attach the paper to the cup with Crayola School Glue. Air dry flat.
On a large paper, students create a background for the flower scene. Glue the pot of lilies to the background. Air-dry flat.
