Ideas for Palm Sunday:

Make your own ‘palm’ cross out of paper or card.

Make your own card or banner with a colourful ‘Hosanna !’ written on it.

Perhaps display the palm cross, ‘Hosanna’ banner, or a piece of greenery in your window.
Note: In an Oxfordshire village they always used to grab branches of ‘Pussy Willow’ from the hedgerows to wave as the congregation processed from the village green to the church – If you have a garden then any bit of greenery would do to represent your palm branch.

How to make a Palm Cross:

You could use paper or ribbon rather than a palm leaf...
