Crafty Crafters: Pentecost





So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for Pentecost?



Here is a craft I make with my students using card stock:



Introduce craft- What flickered around the disciple’s heads, but didn’t burn them? (Fiery flames.)


Tongues of Fire Headbands Craft- Use card stock paper or cardboard to cut out flame shapes. Have the children paint them with water colors or glue red and orange pieces of tissue paper on it to make it look like flames. Use a strip of paper for the headband, fitting it to each child’s head and using a stapler to secure the headband. Attach the flames to the headband using the stapler as well.



Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!

We've loved making our pentecost 'tongue of fire' crowns for several years now. I blogged about it here: http://www.heatherhaupt.com/2010/05/20/tutorial-pentecost-crowns/
