Palm Sunday Today!
10:30 am via
To celebrate Palm Sunday, we invite you to harvest some fronds from your yard before the service begins. If you don’t have any palm fronds, here is a video link to demonstrate how to make your own palm fronds using paper, a green marker or crayon, and scissors. Attached here are several activities from our Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Trish Lawrence, for Holy week and we encourage you to share them with your children and grandchildren.

Paper Palm Branches

Here are a couple of different ways to make your own palm branches at home. 

1. Green paper or white paper and a green crayon, marker, or colored pencil
2. Scissors
3. Tape or glue
4. A “stem”: a popsicle stick, tongue depressor, plastic knife, stick from the yard

Hand Print Palm Branch:

Step 1) trace your hand or your child’s hand onto the paper
Step 2) Stack 2-4 sheets of green or white paper together if you have more than one
Step 3) Cut out handprints while the pages are stacked together to make several handprints
Step 4) Lay the handprints out in an overlapping fashion so that they resemble a palm branch
Step 5) Glue the handprints together or tape the back of the handprints together. (I used clear packing tape.)
Step 6) Tape or glue your “stem” to back of your palm branch in the center (I used a plastic knife)
Step 7) If using white paper, color the front of your handprints green 


Paper Leaf Palm Branch:

Step 1) Take one piece of paper, and cut a large oval leaf shape out of it
Step 2) Draw a faint line down the center of the back of your leaf so that you avoid cutting too far into the center
Step 3) Make small cuts at an angle down the sides of the leaf, avoiding the center 
Step 4) Tape or glue your stem to the back. (I used clear packing tape and a plastic knife)
Step 5) Optional: Write “Hosanna” down the center of your palm branch
