Palm Weaving Magnet

Here is a sneak preview of one of our Messy Church crafts for Good Friday!

We've tried to find completely different crafts from last year, though we're keeping the egg decorating!

We needed a craft to represent Palm Sunday so we looked around... Pre- cut crafts are available from catalogues and websites and we came across this idea from Baker Ross but we decided to make them ourselves and save a bit of money!  To buy the packs online, click here for a link.  This is what we did...

Cut out a leaf shape from green card.  You can get 2 from an A4 sheet.  Fold it in half and cut long slits.

Weave thin strips of coloured paper through the slits.
Trim the ends of the paper and stick a magnet on the back.

The finished palm leaf magnet! (quite large for a magnet but easy, cheap and effective!)
