Hosanna Rock - Last Minute Triumphal Entry Craft

Just in case you're looking for a last minute craft for Palm Sunday, I thought I'd share what I have planned for my Sunday School class today, to go along with a lesson on the Triumphal Entry.

It's a scaled down version of the Palm Sunday pet rock craft I made with my own children earlier in the week.

Supplies for each child:

  • one small rock (1 to 2 inches around), washed and dried ahead of time
  • a pair of small to medium googly eyes
  • a toothpick
  • a slip of paper around two inches long and 1/2 inch wide
  • glue - school, stick, and hot glue (for the teacher)
  • pens or colored pencils

Each child gets to choose a small rock to glue eyes onto with school glue.

While the eyes are drying, the children can prepare Hosanna! flags for their rocks to "hold"...

Break the sharp ends off of the tooth pick.

Cut a small triangle out of one end of the slip of paper, and add glue with a glue stick, to the other end.

Roll the end with glue around the top of the toothpick.

Stick the flags to the sides of the rocks, for the children, with hot glue.

Read Luke 19:39-40, and remind the children of the importance of praising the Lord!

It's great to be a Sunday School teacher :)
