  1. One great activity we did for the Ascension is to get a picture of Jesus ascending into heaven and get the children to cut it out and colour it and then attach it to a helium balloon with a string and let it go up into the sky. The children loved watching Jesus going into Heaven. Judy Law

  2. For Pentecost Sunday mothers in our prayer/play group cut out a number of tongues of fire using red paper and decorated them with glitter or just use red cello paper cut into flames. When the children were outside playing we quickly placed these tongues on top of the ceiling fan blades which was above the table. We then gathered the children together and got them to sit down and close their eyes and get them to sing ‘Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on us, meld us, mould us’ etc. and when they sang the second verse ‘Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on us’ turn the fan on full blast and as the tongues fell on the children they opened their eyes in amazement.
