Celebrating Palm Sunday at Home
Palm Sunday is going to feel different this year. We will not be together at church waving palms and singing “Hosanna.” But you can still participate in this special Sunday of the church year.
Here is an activity for people of all ages that you can do to prepare for the on-line service on Sunday:
Make your own palm branch!
- Create a palm branch using 1-inch wide green strips of paper for the leaves. Glue the leaves to a wooden paint stick. Write the following on the leaves: “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” Matthew 21:9
2. Use hand prints to make your own palm branch.
3. Make construction or newspaper Palm Branches
You will need a piece of green construction paper (or newspaper), scissors and tape. Cut your paper in ½ inch strips about half way down the length of the paper. Roll uncut end of paper into a tube and tape. Fluff top pieces of paper where you cut into strips to create palm branch.
4. Get creative! Make your own palm branch any way you like!
