PREPARATION:

If you can't find palm leaves, try calling a florist shop and see if you can purchase some. Or you can use cut strips of lightweight green poster board. You will want to create one or two crosses before class to get an idea of how to assist the children.

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

Give each child one palm leaf and a copy of the instructions. Provide help as needed.
