Activity Village is not a Christian site, but there are some lovely resources there that you can adapt for your purposes. Here are the links:
Children’s Ministry magazine is always a fund of great ideas. There online resources are no exception.
In this craft and activity you can wave your home-made palm branches and shout praises to Jesus, while thanking God for the blessings others bring into your lives.
This idea for a family Palm Sunday celebration can be used in a church context, family worship or class room. Just adapt the setting. The discussion and craft are very versatile and helpful. Through our own emotions we can gain a greater understanding of what the Jerusalem people and Jesus felt. We can also have opportunity to value and appreciate others – and that is always good.

This great craft idea from Awana at home is pretend “spaghetti and meatballs” with “tomato sauce”. And it’s a delicious cake dessert.
It is easy to make at home, or even with a small group in a club, because you can buy pre-baked fairy cakes and have the decorating materials ready.
To find out how to make the delicious and fun dessert, visit the Awana at Home blog, ApPARENTly Blogging, for all instructions and some gooey, mouth-watering pics.

There is a lovely idea which we came across recently for a simple craft project to tie in with Poppy Day (Remembrance Day or Veterans’ Day) .

There are plenty of recipes for play dough to make at home, but many involve cooking.
