Make an Easter Tree – Lent Week 7

Decorate your easter tree with leaves. Paper leaves work well with the following activity:
Explanation: Last Sunday we celebrated Palm Sunday. On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the special entry Jesus made into Jerusalem on the back of a colt the week before his death and resurrection.
The Bible tells us that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches, and by covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.
Activity: As we remember this time where Jesus began this journey to the cross. You may like to draw or cut out of a piece of paper, a branch or flower that represents yourself. You may like to write on it a letter of prayer to Jesus. Perhaps begin each line with the first letters of your name. We know that Jesus loves our different personalities and ways of being and relating to him.
