Pentecost is May 31st! It is the birthday of the church and it is a day of great celebration.
Creative Flame Kids has a wonderful idea, “Pentecost in a Parcel”.
You may want to rename this “Pentecost in a Box” or “Pentecost in a Bag”. Mina Munns, Priest in Charge and Pioneer Minister – Parish Churches of Cresswell and Lynemouth, Church of England is the author of this particular version of this idea.
Visual and Hands-on Ideas- that might fit in your parcel, bag, or box in addition to the examples given in Mina Munns’ post linked above.
RED Pom-Poms (think cheerleader style), Balloons, Windmills/Pinwheels, Bubbles (bubble machine or bubble wand), Paper Doves, Ribbons, Mesh type fabric in RED – YELLOW – ORANGE, Birthday Party for the Church
And with a little more preparation and materials…
