The Treehouse team are so excited to start this new Easter Series - Footsteps to the Cross - exploring 4 key events as we move closer to Easter Sunday.
Today we are learning about Palm Sunday and why this day was so special.
Why don't you check out the video to see what Lucy and Sam have planned for this session?
Game: Donkey Rides - Jesus came into Jerusalem as a King - riding on a donkey. Can you set up a quick assault course and have a go at becoming a donkey? Perhaps you can get a grown up to give you a ride?
Songs: Could you try copying the actions to these songs, turn it up and get dancing!
Raise a Hallelujah
The King is Coming
Actvitiies: See picture of the activities here
1) Can you make your own palm branch, either by weaving through coloured strips or by cutting green handprints and sticking them together?
2) Can you use grey and green paint, to create a donkey (from your footprint) and leaves from your handprints - to remember that Jesus came on a donkey through the streets?
3) Can you make mini bibles out of fig rolls and icing? Eat these tasty treats while you check out the bible verse for the day - John 12:13
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the king of Israel!"
We hope you enjoy all the activities, if you are joining us for the first time do connect with us - drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - we would love to hear from you.
