As Jesus made his way to the Temple in Jerusalem riding a donkey people lined the streets waving palm leaves chanting Hosanna! Even the children particitipated singing praises to our savior. The streets were lined with palm leaves and coats making the road appear like a carpet for Jesus and the donkey to ride across. My husband and I did this craft with our 4-year-old Sunday School class last week...they loved it. After church Meara saw what we did and wanted one too. You can find the template the the leaf here.
Paper towel tube
Green contrustion paper (cut out leaves using link to pattern above and tape to wire)
Stiff floral wire sticks or a coat hanger cut up into sticks
After coloring the paper towel tube pierce holes into top sides of tube and insert the wire then tape down to secure. We learned the hard way that you should bend the wire prior to insertion into tube or the tube will tear.
