Pentecost Crafts for Kids

Pentecost Crafts

Are you looking for Pentecost craft ideas?  Pentecost is such a great time to get creative with the kids.  The descending of the Holy Spirit lends itself well to creative expression and fun, fiery crafts.  These Pentecost crafts for kids will get your kids creatively engaged in the story.

We’ve done these Pentecost crafts both at church and at home.  They are great for Sunday school and for Bible study time at home.

You also don’t have to save these for Pentecost.  These are great Holy Spirit craft ideas for any day (or any week) when you are talking about the Holy Spirit with the kids.

We use them especially around Pentecost because we’re in a more liturgical church that celebrates the birth of the early church and the coming of the Holy Spirit (i.e. Pentecost) each year, 50 days after Easter.

Below, you’ll find Holy Spirit/Pentecost crafts that you can decorate the house with, hang in the window, and also some that the kids can play with and wear!

I think the Holy Spirit headbands and the ribbon bracelets were my kids’ favourites.  They love anything where they can ‘customize’ it: pick the colors, change it up a bit….
