Get out pictures or video, maybe you still have the outfit they wore. Talk about how special that day was for you and for them. (Especially since we have just spent two weeks at church talking about John the Baptist and Jesus’ Baptism.) Help them understand what the 7 Sacraments of the Catholic Church are (Glossary).
