Holy Week – The Triumphal Entry

Resources Needed:

  • Cardboard Parcel Tubes (two or three)
  • Something to stand the tubes on (we used microphone stands)
  • Green Paper
  • Scissors
  • Pens
  • Sellotape
  • Printed Instructions.
  • It’s also worth having one or two leaves cut out and ready to stick on at the start of this time.

Printed Instructions:

As Jesus arrived in Jerusalem people took palm leave to lay down for him as they shouted:

Praise God!
Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessings on the coming Kingdom of our ancestor David! Praise God in highest heaven!

We’re going to make two palm trees.

Cut a leaf for our palm tree from the green paper – on it write something that you want to praise God for – it can be anything at all. Once you’ve done that stick your leaf to the tree trunk with the others.
