Forty days after Easter comes the festival of ASCENSION when Christ was taken up into the clouds and left the realm of the Earth. Now he becomes the lord of the Universe and of the elements. His being radiates down to the Earth. Something of the quality of this time we can hold in our hearts while we accompany the children on a walk up a hill, from where we can look down and distance ourselves a little from the world.
The children make wind wands, kites or other wind borne toys and the children celebrate by playing with these and with the wind either at kindergarten or out on a walk.
