Pentecost (Acts 2) | Craft 1

 

Pentecost means tongues of fire, flames hovering above heads and that’s exactly what this craft does. It is made from acetate (think overhead projector transparencies) ad because the stand is clear it really does look like it hovers. To get the best result for this craft you need to use a real flame or something that emits a lot of heat – a hairdryer doesn’t work. For this reason it’s a craft best done in tiny groups with heavy supervision. Pentecost (Acts 2) | Craft 1

Essential Teachers notes:
It’s the churches birthday! It can be tempting to rush to the good bit of this story where there are tongues of fire and the gift of tongues, but we must start with Jesus’s words to his disciples otherwise the events would have made no sense to the believers.
