The Pentecost Story Activity for Catholic Kids

Download and share Sadlier’s The Pentecost StoryActivity with your primary students in anticipation of the Feast of Pentecost.


When the risen Jesus visited the disciples before he returned to his Father in Heaven, he promised to send the Holy Spirit to be with the Church always.  The Holy Spirit came to the disciples on Pentecost. The Church celebrates the Feast of Pentecost fifty days after Easter Sunday. This year, the Feast of Pentecost will be celebrated on Sunday, May 23.

Download and share The Pentecost StoryActivity with your primary students in anticipation of the Feast of Pentecost. In The Pentecost StoryActivity, children will first think about what happened on the day the Church began, and then sequence a series of Pentecost events. This activity will especially appeal to students who prefer linguistic and interpersonal activities.

Before beginning The Pentecost StoryActivity, you’ll want to review the story of Pentecost with the children. Refer to Acts of the Apostles 2:1–4, use a children’s Bible, or consult the Creemos or We Believe Catholic Identity Edition student text. Catechists will also need to gather materials in advance, including construction paper (a sheet for each child, preferably in red—the color associated with Pentecost because of the "tongues of fire" which appeared over the Apostles' heads that day), tape (or glue), pencils, and crayons. Each child will also need a copy of the activity sheet.

Distribute The Pentecost StoryActivity and give each child a sheet of construction paper. Read the directions. Help the children arrange the sentences in the correct order (1. “Early one Sunday morning....” 2. “The disciples heard a noise….” 3. “They saw what looked….” 4. “The disciples went out….”). Ask for a volunteer to tell what happened next (Peter spoke about Jesus to a large crowd of people) and have the children write this or a similar sentence on the final blank strip. Invite children to color the tongues of fire beside each sentence. Finally, assist children in affixing the sentence strips onto the sheet of construction paper using tape or glue. Once children have completed the activity, invite them to gather in the prayer space. Pray together, "Holy Spirit, help us to tell others about Jesus Christ."
