In the first Gospel reading for Palm Sunday in Matthew 21:1-11, Jesus makes his Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Waving their palm branches, the people shout:
“Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!” (Matthew 21:9)
You can make this story come alive for your children with a fun Palm Sunday craft. You only need a few materials to get started.
Note: Any of these items can be substituted for something similar. For instance, a ruler could be used in the place of a popsicle stick. Be creative when collecting your items!
