Journey to Easter (Day 1): Palm Branch Craft

As I begin to share some Easter crafts over the next two weeks, the girls and I are using the book Passion Hymns for a Kid’s Heart by Bobbie Wolgemuth and Joni Eareckson Tada in our morning devotion time.  I’m designing our crafts and activities to coincide with the hymns and stories in the book!  Our first craft is a classic Palm Sunday activity to go along with the song All Glory, Laud, and Honor.



  • Green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Pencil, straw, or pipe cleaner

1)  Cut a leaf shape from paper.

2)  Cut short slits around the leaf.

3)  Tape a pencil, pipe cleaner, craft stick, or straw to the leaf.

The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”

John 12:12-13
