Palm Sunday is a portable Christian holiday, the first day of the week when Jesus was sentenced to death. This year, it usually falls on Sunday, March 24. The event commemorates Jesus’ triumphal arrival in Jerusalem a few days before the great Passover begins on the 12th.

The name “Palm Sunday” comes from the palm branches with which the crowds waved to welcome and honor Jesus as he entered the city. According to the accounts in the four canonical Gospels, Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem occurred about a week before His resurrection.

On Palm Sunday, Christians carry palms in the procession during church services. After the mass, the allowed talismans are not abandoned but are maintained throughout the year. They are then burned to create ashes for Ash Wednesday the following year.

As we enter Holy Week, these illustrations provide a delightful way to commemorate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. These printable coloring pages make fun and creative activities that spark children’s interest in the Palm Sunday story. They also provide family connections and resources for Sunday School classes to learn about this memorable holiday.
