I had set up these paper helicopters with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. You fold down the "wings" and toss it in the air and it comes fluttering down.
I made them in flame colors with enough for each kid to do several. The gift is written in silver, and a simple explanation is written in pen.
- Wisdom: Seeing things as God sees them.
- Knowledge: Knowing your faith.
- Understanding: Knowing what to do.
- Counsel: Helping others to choose the right thing.
- Piety: Loving God.
- Fortitude: Courage to do what is right.
- Awe: Being amazed at what God is doing.
We did the saint matching game, and the "Find the Treasure" card games.
I think we also did the Resist the Temptation board game.
And we had snacks! What a great year, and a great group of kids!
