“’Come and follow me,” Jesus said”

People spread coasts and palm branches on the road and shout praises as Jesus enters Jerusalem.

Read John 8:2-11

Bath Time:  Spray a pile of shaving cream on the edge of the bathtub.  Encourage your child to spread the shaving cream along the edge of the tub and then use his finger to make a road in the foam.  Next, show him how to walk his fingers on the road he made and pretend it is Jesus riding into Jerusalem.  As he walks his fingers, lead him in saying, “Hosanna! Hosanna! Yay, Jesus!”
