CRAFTS AND ACTIVITIES
Linked below are a coloring page, Jesus on a donkey craft (cut and glue together), and a picture of a Palm Leaf for you to make with your child (allow them to cut the palm fringe with safety scissors, if they are capable).
Consider having a Palm Sunday parade in your living room. Make several palm leaves, throw a blanket or jackets on the floor and take turns riding in on a donkey (stick horse or broom). 🙂 It might feel silly, but your preschooler will love it and it will help to solidify the story in their minds.Download the take-home lesson Download the craft Download the coloring page
