Would you like to try waving a palmbranch? (Give each child one to wave). A long time ago, Jesus told his disciples to get him a donkey to ride. Thedisciples had to go find one. It did not take very long until they found a nicelooking donkey. They found a donkey that was big enough to carry Jesus.The disciple brought the donkey to Jesus.Next, the disciples took their coats and placed on the donkey
s back. Thisgave some padding for Jesus to sit upon the donkey.When Jesus entered the city, the people gave him a wonderful welcome.They cried out,

s say our memory verse,
Hosanna,Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord
