Today is Palm Sunday and to kick off our week of activities leading up to Resurrection Sunday we made palm branches. These were super simple and turned out so cute!
I rolled up one sheet of green construction paper. Then I traced Seth's hand, stacked my papers all together so I only had to cut out the handprint one time, and then we taped them onto the rolled up paper.
After waving it around for a few minutes we had to do some reinforcing with the tape, but it could withstand the abuse from a toddler pretty well.
Silas got his own palm branch that I made with some kids at church this morning.
It was made from a large craft stick and only had a few handprints glued to it.
This year we are using The Story of Easter: Read and Share in addition to our collection of Easter related books. This was given out last month at a MOPs meeting that I regularly attend at a local church.
It has already been so helpful and we still have a week's worth of great stuff to learn about!
