Pentecost occurs after Easter. The disciples were in hiding when Jesus appeared to them saying God would send them a gift. Later, they were still in hiding, and the Holy Spirit descended upon them. The disciples could speak in different languages. They could tell the world about what they have seen and heard. God gave them the Holy Spirit so they could spread His Word. The theme for Day 5 is "God empowers us". God empowered the disciples by giving them the Holy Spirit.
This activity is having the children make flame headbands. This is to demonstrate the Holy Spirit coming down and appearing over the disciples heads. The supplies are:
- Red construction paper
- Orange construction paper
