Continuing on with our Religious notebooking project, today I’m posting some printable Pentecost pages. They go with pages 62-63 in Tell Me About The Catholic Faith (TMACF), or any other Pentecost resource you would rather use with your kids.
My Thoughts On These Pages in TMACF:
I liked the way they told this story, and I also loved that they included a little box with a story of the Ascension. Now, this book moves through a lot of material really fast, which is something I love about this book, but sometimes things get left out that I feel needed to be there. When teaching kids about Pentecost, I always like to emphasize that they waited in prayer for 9 days for the Holy Spirit to come, which is why we pray novenas. So when you read this page, I suggest you insert that little tid bit to your kiddos. 🙂
This page comes with a little coloring page at the top, and a place for them to write in what stuck with them from the reading. It’s always interesting to me to see what stuck out to the kids.
As with all the other free downloads in this series, there’s also a page where a sentence can be traced for kids that are too young to write their own sentences.
Sing the Pentecost song! Tune of “Are You Sleeping”
Tongues of fire, tongues of fire,
driving wind, driving wind,
Holy Spirit’s coming! Holy Spirit’s coming!
Let Him in. Let him in.
- Read the story of the Pentecost from your actual Bible, or one of your children’s Bibles.
- Make a Pentecost “tongues of fire” craft to wear on your head. Super fun!
- Try this Holy Spirit dove craft that you can make with a paper plate, and attach the gifts of the spirit.
- Make a Pentecost Sunday! (A Pentecost ice cream Sundae that is) 😉
- Make a strawberry Pentecost cake to teach your kids how Pentecost is like the birthday of the church.
- I also have some more dove crafts including this very simple paper plate dove, and this handprint dove craft.
- Pray a novena with your family. I have a few novena counter crafts here, but this doesn’t have to be complicated- just pray the prayers. 🙂
Book of Centuries:
Definitely you can add Pentecost to your book of centuries! It’s so easy to forget to put the Religious stuff in there, but it’s just as much a part of History as anything else that goes in there and it’s so great for kids to see this stuff going down in History with the other real stuff. (Read- the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy will never be making an appearance in the Book of Centuries.)
