Palm Sunday Crafts & Activities
A nice activity shared by a mum on Facebook. You can adapt it for any age and to suit your children's interests.
This family had a lovely idea - every time someone wishes they could do something special, visit someone they love and miss, go somewhere nice, they write it down and put into a jar/box.
After this is all over, the family will work their way through all the wishes.
In the meantime, enjoy writing down your wishes and watching the jar fill up.
When the time comes to do them - we will appreciate them all the more.
If you get a chance to try this out I think you're children will love it.
You have free access to so many fun activities - there is even a Dabbledoo Radio station.
Lots of live music videos, games and songs available.

If you are finding the content a bit overwhelming, don't worry, Dabbledoo will be sending weekly emails with suggested activities each Sunday. You can just work through those activities or work your way through the activities at your own pace.
Remember, they are only suggestions - you don't have to do any of them.

The Facebook group "The Animation Challenge" are posting up a small challenge each day. You can use your phone or tablet and the Stop Motion Studio App. It's free and user friendly.
There are plenty of videos posted already which you can look at.
NOTE: Both adults and children can post on this group as it is public. I would recommend parents to have a look at the posts first to be sure it is child-friendly.
You can also view her YouTube Channel and follow the videos. If you are new to the app, maybe start with Challenge 01 and work your way up as they progress and become more challenging.
Here is an example of some of the Animation Challenges that were set:
