AC­TIVE TIME: 20 min.

Simple Grace - - Moments To Treasure -

Trace the child’s hands with pen­cil onto green pa­per. Use scis­sors to cut out the hand out­lines. Erase any left­over pen­cil marks.

Lay 5 to 6 hand­prints (con­sist­ing of both shades of green) on a ta­ble to form a palm frond. To se­cure, ap­ply dots of white glue where hand­prints over­lap; let dry.

Flip over the hand­print palm frond and use a small drop of white glue to at­tach the top third of a wooden craft stick to the base of the leaves. This cre­ates a han­dle for lit­tle ones to grasp the frond. Let dry.

On the Sun­day be­fore His Res­ur­rec­tion, Je­sus rode into the city of Jerusalem on a don­key, ful­fill­ing the prophecy in the Old Tes­ta­ment. As He en­tered, crowds of peo­ple wel­comed Him by joy­fully wav­ing palms and shout­ing, “Hosanna!” The on­look­ers then placed palm branches along His path to keep the dusty roads from dirty­ing Him, which was a ges­ture rec­og­niz­ing His roy­alty.
