- NEED: Activity Pages, crayons; glue sticks; scissors;
- DO: Encourage children to color their pictures. Show children where to glue their picture of Jesus riding the donkey. Fold their paper to make it pop up.
- Say: "You have two pictures: a big picture of the people beside the special path of coats and palm branches and a smaller picture of Jesus riding a donkey. Color both pictures. (Pause.) These look great, but I have something to make your picture really neat. Rub some glue on this part. (Point to the area marked ‘Glue here.’) Put the picture of Jesus here. (Help children line up their pictures.) Now for the neat part. (Fold their paper so Jesus on the donkey pops ups.) Wow! So neat! In our Bible story, we heard how Jesus was coming to the town of Jerusalem and everyone was so excited! They took off their coats and laid them on the ground with palm branches so Jesus would have a special path. Some people held palm branches and waved them in the air. They were all ready to celebrate. Jesus was riding a donkey on the path. When the people saw Him, they waved their branches and said, ‘Hosanna! Hosanna! YAY, JESUS!’ The people were so excited to celebrate Jesus because Jesus is so special! We can celebrate Jesus, too, because Jesus is so special and Jesus is alive! Who is alive? [Bottom Line] Jesus is alive.”
- MORNING TIME
- When you go into your child’s room, say: "Good morning, [child's name]! Let's start the day by celebrating Jesus. Hosanna! Hosanna! Yay, Jesus!"
