Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week, celebrates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. On Palm Sunday, Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament prophecy ((Isaiah 62:11 and Zechariah 9:9) by riding into town on a donkey. Crowds of followers honoured Jesus by placing palm branches on the ground ahead of his progress. Children will enjoy learning more about this special day through hands-on crafts and activities.

Make your own palm

Children will enjoy re-enacting Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem with their own homemade palm branches. You can create your own pattern, or look on the Web for patterns. Patterns can be traced onto coloured construction paper, or can be printed on white paper for the children to colour in.

Paper bag donkey

Markers, crayons, construction paper, scissors and glue will turn an ordinary lunch bag into a donkey worthy of carrying the King of Kings. Provide patterns for ears, tails and legs for the children to cut out of construction paper. The children can draw faces on their puppets.

Palm fan

Children can make their own palm fan with nothing more than a plastic drinking straw and paper. Have children cut palm fronds (or leaves) out of construction paper. Tape the fronds to the straw to mimic a palm fan.
