Second Sunday of Pentecost

The Holy Spirit Descends as Flames of Fire


Spinners bring forth the drama of Pentecost.

Cut a flame shape from a large sheet of red plastic or paper (8 - 1/2 by 11 is fine) - you want a spinner that is flexible, but sturdy.

Decorate it with colored foil or glitter. Glue tightly.

I used a sheet of transparent formex film overlaid on a sheet of 2 mil plastic and decorated it with 3 - D film, so the spinner was translucent. The children were captivated by their shimmering creations.

Beginning at center bottom, cut a continuous strip about 3/4 of an inch wide.

Punch a hole in the center of the very last cut (it spins more freely if it spins from the middle). Attach a cord or lanyard and let the flames of the Holy Spirit descend on your head and the heads of your friends.
