The Legend of the Sand Dollar Printable
You can download, save and print out this printable version below!
The Sand Dollar Legend is an Easter and Christmas favorite which tells a story that includes the five slits representing the wounds on Christ when on the cross, the Easter lily with a star in the middle representing the star of Bethlehem and on the back is the outline of a Poinsettia, the Christmas flower.
There’s a lovely little legend that I would like to tell,
of the birth and death of Jesus, found in this lowly shell.
If you examine closely, you’ll see that you find here,
four nail holes and a fifth one, made by a Roman’s spear.
On one side the Easter lily, its center is the star,
that appeared unto the shepherds and led them from afar.
The Christmas Poinsettia etched on the other side,
reminds us of His birthday, our happy Christmastide.
Now break the center open, and here you will release,
the five white doves awaiting, to spread Good Will and Peace.
This simple little symbol, Christ left for you and me,
to help us spread His Gospel, through all Eternity.
