Let your children enjoy the secular traditions of Easter, but be just as intentional in telling them about what Christ was doing that first Easter.
Read all about Palm Sunday at Day One of Passion Week. Tell the story with enthusiasm to your children.
Make palm leaves out of green construction paper or white paper and paint green. Let children cut into the edges to make the leaves.
Act out the story: use a stick horse or a broom as the donkey or even let dad be the donkey 🙂 Let one child be Jesus and as he rides into the city, the rest of the family can wave the leaves.
Have fun teaching the Greatest Story ever told this Passion Week!! Follow Train Up The Child for information and ideas all week.
Here’s a great song to sing as you act out the story: https://youtu.be/Kht2SR8P0ko
