An All- Age Worship Activity
You need : Green, Red,Black, White and Yellow balloon bunches or streamers or flags.
Call forward any of the congregation or children's group who are wearing a green top (t-shirt, jumper, sweater...). Give them the green props and ask them to stand in a group on the far left side of your stage or up-front area. Talk about how the colour green may remind us that Jesus came... and on the way he was welcomed into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Ask the green group to practice their phrase. Continue this process with the following colours and phrases.
"Jesus came- and suffered- and died- but came alive again- to bring new life...
GREEN ---- RED ---- BLACK --- WHITE --- YELLOW
Finally invite all those remaining in the congregation wearing other colours to add "for everyone" to finish the phrase. Those holding the balloons can form a rolling Mexican wave of colour as they circle the balloons in front of them as they say their phrase.
