Celebrating Pentecost

My son Andrew and I had a lot of fun preparing for Pentecost. We used some of the ideas that I found on the Shower of Roses website.

First we made our version of a windsock. I didn’t have ribbon so I used yarn instead. Also, my son wanted it hung up on the wall, so that’s what we did!

While I was cutting out the flames, he colored a picture of the Apostles. (The shapes were a bit too complicated for him to cut out.)

Then we cut out more flames and wrote the fruits of the spirit on them and posted the flames on the wall, along with his Apostles picture and another flame he colored.

Here’s Andrew on fire with the spirit. 🙂

Here is a picture of our breakfast table setting with Andrew’s “flame-less” candle.

For dinner we had Cornish hens, rice, salad and cranberry sauce. I don’t have a picture of dinner, but for dessert we had red velvet cake with vanilla icing. Yum!

All in all it was a wonderful day. The best part of the day for me, though, was in the morning: Andrew and I crawled up together and prayed and talked for a good while. Not an easy feat for a very active, and antsy five year old!

God bless you!
