Palm Sunday

Our Family Home Evening lesson this week was about Palm Sunday (which is this Sunday), which celebrates Jesus's entrance to Jerusalem the Sunday before He was crucified. On this day, as the Savior rode in on a donkey, the people laid palm frawns and their coats on the ground in front of Him. After telling the kids the story, I let them act it out.

Jax was Jesus, and used Ava's stick horse as a donkey... complete with sounds effects.

I made makeshift palm frawns with pencils and green tulle, and just grabbed a few coats off the coatrack. Simple, but the kids loved it and reenacted it several times. The best part is, it stuck. I overheard Ava telling the story of Palm Sunday to her little friend today. I couldn't help but smile.
