The Hebrew word for the Holy Spirit is "Ruach," which means wind. The believers do not just hear the sound of a strong wind, but the Wind of God has come into them and on them. In this game we dwell on this.
What do you need:
- a number of inflated balloons
- a number of funnels

I have some balloons here. These balloons are also filled with wind, with my breath. Can you catch these balloons?
Take turns asking two or three children to come forward (depending on how many funnels you have).
The children hold the funnel with their right hand from below. With the other hand they put the inflated balloon on / in the funnel. Now they are not allowed to use their other hand.
They throw the balloon up with their funnel hand and then try to catch the balloon again.
How long does this go well? Who can do this the most number of times without the balloon falling to the ground?
After a few times, switch players so that everyone gets a chance.
It is quite difficult to catch a balloon. Who knows what to do to get the Holy Spirit in and on you?
