Bible Lesson & Craft: Palm Sunday Donkey

Palm Sunday Donkey Craft with Free Printables! #Easter #PalmSunday #BibleCrafts

This is a fun craft and Bible Lesson for Palm Sunday. This can be done at home or in a Sunday School/church setting. My kids loved making their little donkeys. These are extremely simple to make and the donkeys could even be cut out ahead of time before class if you have a church class with smaller children or shorter class time.

Read: Matthew 21:1-11

Lesson: Sometimes when you’re small it can be hard to do all the things the grownups do. You may feel like God can’t use you.  However, we see in the Bible in the book of Matthew that Jesus rode into Jerusalem and was treated like a King. Did Jesus ride into the town on a mighty horse, with a gold crown and soldiers all around him? No. Jesus chose to ride on a donkey, in his everyday clothes, surround by his disciples and friends. Jesus showed us what it means to be humble. (Being humble means to not be concerned with how important you are). As a humble king, Jesus showed us that we don’t have to be perfect, or mighty for Him to use us. Just as Jesus used a little unimportant donkey for a very important job He can use you too! You are important to Jesus. The crowds worshipped Jesus even though he rode on the little donkey. We can do great things when we let Jesus use us for His glory!

Memory Verse:

Matthew 21:9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,“Hosanna to the Son of David!”“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Please use us for Your glory and help remind us how important we are in Your eyes. Fill us with Your love and help us share that love with others. We love you Jesus.

Amen

First you’re going to want to print out the donkeys. You can precut the donkeys and give them to the kids or have the kids color them and cut them out themselves.

Here’s a preview…aren’t they going to look cute!

Have the kids color the donkeys and cut them out if they haven’t already.

I used paint for the legs, but crayons work well too and are quicker.

Once the legs and body are colored clip the legs (clothespins) onto the body.

Then take the q-tip and color it. You can use paint, like I did, or crayons. Either works fine, but with crayons you just can’t color the tip. :-) If you have a class with little ones I suggest painting the tips black before class.

Just clip the q-tip in the back of the donkey’s legs to hold it in place.
