This is the time when I try to show children different sides of love – painful, uncomfortable, difficult. Love which presents scarifies and gives up comfort. It can be love for mum and dad – listening; love for yourself – making right healthy choices; love for friends – letting them have a turn first; love of work – seeing that every work is done to the best of our ability; love for others – keeping promises.
The children need to see that rewards for these sacrifices are so sweet and pleasant, they help them gain something that can not be seen but will last forever.

During Group time I usually tell the story of Palm Sunday. Did you know that palm is the most flexible tree? No matter how hard the wind is – it can’t break the palm tree. I always loved this verse from Psalm 92: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree”. I thought it’s quite amazing. We look into the parts of a palm leaf and talk about why people in those days used palm leaves to greet Jesus. I encourage children to reenact this story and they make a craft with palm leaves.

Later we generally play the “pin donkey’s tail game which they usually find hilarious.

Here are some Easter Montessori shelf activities to encourage work on developing hand grip, finger strength, concentration, fine motor skills, etc. These are activities on transferring, sorting, matching, coloring and cutting.
