Bible Activities About Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

Just a few days before Jesus was crucified, He and His disciples approached Jerusalem. Jesus asked two of His disciples to enter a nearby village and while there to untie a donkey and her colt. The disciples were then to bring them to Jesus, which they did. Jesus rode the animals into the city as the people, including children, waved palm branches and shouted "Hosanna!" This joyful welcome is the focus of the following Bible activities for children and preschoolers.
