That couldn't be further from the truth.
In fact, it is Easter as a whole. She loves the new life spring brings along with the promise of knowing that all the things that were either dormant or appearing to be 'dead' through the winter, will once again become alive again.
She associates this with the savior's death, burial, and his coming to life again!
After all, isn't that what Easter is about?
Our Savior dying for us and being ALIVE again!!
When teaching your class on Palm Sunday and it's mark on the Savior's trip to the cross, be sure to stress that although it was a sad time, the best is yet to come!!
Reassure your class that even though Jesus' ride into Jerusalem leads him to the cross, he doesn't stay there.
He arose from the dead and lives forever in heaven. This is a great time to talk about how they can live forever in heaven with him if only they ask him to be their savior.
While many young children won't fully understand, this will help plant a seed for their future. They will begin to ask questions and learn more about becoming a child of God.
