Our Pentecost celebration in Children's Church was rather scaled down this year. First of all, most of the kids that normally come weren't there for various reasons. Secondly, we didn't have our traditional cupcakes to celebrate the church's birthday, because my co-teacher, who wanted to bake them, was sick. But, we made the best of it and had a pretty good time together.
It's the one time of the liturgical year where we get to use the color red! Our liturgical "clock" below shows the time.

I told the Godly Play "Mystery of Pentecost" story, which you can read more about here, here and here.
I limited our Response Time to the following activities: needle-felting with wool, drawing with colored pencils and a Montessori Practical Life activity. Below you can see the materials for needle-felting and drawing. Later this week, I'll show you the Practical Life tray activity.
