Family Easter Craft: Simple Palm Sunday Craft
On Palm Sunday, have family members write praise statements on strips of colorful paper. Collect the strips when finished.
During the week, staple the strips into loops and make praise chains. Add to the chain each day of the week. Make the chains about 8- to 10-feet long. Add sections of blank strips to stretch out the chains so they’re long enough to surround your family or dining area.
On Easter Sunday, gather in a circle and hold the praise chains in a way that surrounds your family. Explain that the chains are comprised of praise for Jesus, then lead your family in a prayer that says, “He is risen!” as a refrain. Go around the circle and give each person a chance to say, “He is risen!” then raise the praise chains high in the air.
