Pentecost Open House
Our first year of rotation we had an open house on Pentecost (the end of our school year) and the whole church was invite to go through all the workshops and participate in a short something in each one. Two I remember:
Art: Everyone traced and cut out their handprint from red, orange or yellow felt and someone helped them glue it to a large felt banner. The handprints started at the bottom with red, then orange, then yellow and were shaped into a large flame. At the top of the banner was a white dove coming down. We then hung it in the sanctuary during worship.
Games: With "Boomwhackers" everyone followed the colored notation for a song, which they couldn't tell at first what the song was (talking in tongues?) until it was played through -- it was "Happy Birthday." Fun!
Editor's note: See a Music/Movement lesson that was developed with this idea of using Boomwhackers to play the Happy Birthday tune.
