Free Printable Palm Sunday, Holy Week Crafts

Palm Sunday, in the Christian faith, celebrates the Biblical triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem one week before His crucifixion. It begins Holy Week and the countdown the Easter Triduum: Good Friday, Holy Thursday, Easter Vigil and then Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday is a floating holiday; linked as it is to Lent and Easter which fall at a different time each year. Holy Week has a sombre aspect, not a party atmosphere. However, Catholics do celebrate it. So I recommend observing Holy Week event with family or kids.

Make a seder meal for Jewish Pesach (passover) on Holy Thursday. In 2013, passover begins sundown, March 26 and goes till April 1. Here are Passover printables. Spend Good Friday in prayer and devotion. Turn off the TV. Have kids spend time in favorite places outdoors--tree house, fort, garden--weather permitting. Focus on Jesus's great love and sacrifice. Here are crafts, coloring and activities for parents to use with children. Use as lessons in homeschool, Christian school, Sunday school or Catholic religious education. These printables provide inexpensive, hands-on ways to explore and celebrate the Palm Sunday.  Free Printable Palm Sunday, Holy Week Crafts
