Y is for Yes Lord

I am nearing the end of the alphabet with the letter “Y”. I can’t believe I’m almost finished! 🙂 Y was a harder letter to “craft” than I thought it would be, but I’m very happy with this “Yes, Lord” craft I came up with. I was first introduced to the “Yes, Lord” song at a high school youth conference, so it always makes me smile.

This is a very simple craft to make. Just have your child trace their hand, and help them cut it out if necessary. Fold the fingers back to glue it into a thumbs-up “Yes”, and add a cross. Write “Yes, Lord” with a marker, and tape a string or pipe cleaner on the back to make it into a hangable ornament.

Here’s another variation I made that includes the
sign language “L” for Lord as well.
Yes Lord Hands Craft
Just be sure that when you trace your hand the thumb
is sticking up nice and high! 🙂

  1. Lacy, Does “regular” school glue work on this or did you use hot glue? Thank you so much for your help! We’re doing “Y” next month for our Catholic ABC’s class!

    • You could use either for this. The school glue will take awhile to dry- I think I remember that’s what we used. If you use hot glue and your glue gun is one of those that gets really hot, you could melt the foam so be careful. 😉
