Free Bible Lesson: The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

In this free Bible lesson, kids discover the significance of the Pentecost as they color an activity page and discuss the Scripture.

Scripture: Acts 2:1-12, Matthew 28:20b


 The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

Beforehand, cut out and curl 3-inch pieces of red, yellow, and orange curling ribbon.

Write children’s names, or older kids can write their own, on their activity pages. Set out the curled ribbon strips, tape, and crayons.

  1. Give each child an activity page. Point to the men in the picture and explain that in the Bible some people were talking about God’s love. But other people didn’t understand because they spoke a different language. Direct children to color each man a different color, as a reminder that the men spoke different languages.
  2. Say: All of a sudden, a big wind blew through the room, and something that looked like fire appeared over the men’s heads.
  3. Helping as needed, have children tape pieces of curled ribbon on the flames. Show children how to blow on the ribbons to make the “flames” move!
  4. Say: The flames showed that God had sent a helper, called the Holy Spirit, to help the people. Suddenly everyone could understand what the men were saying! Lots of people heard about Jesus that day because of the Holy Spirit.
  5. Open your Bible to Matthew 28:20b. Read the Scripture verse aloud to each child one at a time, filling in the word “you” with each child’s name.

God Is With Us


  • Have you ever heard someone speak a different language? What was that like?
  • Who helps you understand God’s Word, the Bible?
  • What is it like to know that God is always with you?

Say: God helped his followers do great things. He was with them all the time, even when they couldn’t see him. God is with us, too. He sent his Holy Spirit to help you and me tell others about Jesus. God is with us right now, so let’s talk with God!

Pray: Dear God, thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to be with us all the time. Thank you for helping us tell others about Jesus. We love you so much! It’s good to know you’re always with us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
