Jesus Rides A Donkey Into Jerusalem

Posted on Updated on

This donkey craft helps the kiddos remember the Easter story of  Jesus triumphantly entering into Jerusalem, with  crowds waiving palm branches and crying out “Hosanna”.

Jesus Rides A Donkey


  1. Print out and color the donkey templates. (Template)
  2. Cut out the donkey and glue both sides together.
  3. Paint/color two clothespins gray.
  4. Then paint the bottom of the clothes pins black for the hooves.
  5. Using small pieces of black string, glue them onto the mane and the tail of the donkey. Cut off any excess string.
  6. Add the clothes pins to the finished body of the donkey.

This craft can also be made for the story of Balaam’s donkey.

    Looks really good for a Messy Church craft – just out of interest did you use mini wooden pegs or full size ones? Thanks, Helen
