We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


 Craft For the corporate craft we suggest making a large sheet from the picture of Jesus and the crowd coming into Jerusalem, get the children to draw themselves, cut them out and then add them to the crowd - Download.

For the cooking craft we suggest getting some dates (which grow on palm trees) and carefully dipping them in chocolate to make sweets..

Jesus says that even if the crowd didn't shout out then the stones would. So we suggest painting the word "Hosanna" in several colours on pebbles, pieces of slate or roofing tiles. The pebbles could be varnished  to give them a finish.

Another craft for older children might be to make palm crosses. There is a template at http://www.kidssundayschool.com/132/gradeschool/palm-leaf-cross.php. It might be difficult to find unfolded palm leaves of the right length, however raffia should work just as well.


Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

Happy Medley We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop - Download - Sample

We think it would be good idea to get everyone to read loudly the shouts of the crowd. We have put them as bold test.
