Vacation Bible School

I’ve been making VBS (Vacation Bible Schools) printables for the past several years.  I do it especially for a lady that’s in one of my Y!Groups.  I think I’ve only missed one year, and I just go too busy and ran out of time.   I believe that was last year for 2013.  I’m once again working on stuff for this year!! 


This is a list of all the posts that I’ve done for my VBS printables.  They’re all related to LifeWay VBS themes.  Here are all the VBS posts….

Round Up for VBS with the Saddle Ridge Ranch theme

VBS:  NYC – Big Apple Adventure with the Big Apple Adventure theme

V.B.S. – Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

V.B.S. – More Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

I’m also working on the Agency D3 theme for this year.  I’m hoping to have them uploaded and posted very soon.  I’m happy with how they’ve come so far and can’t wait to make them available to my group member….and all of you, my readers.

If you use any of these printables, please leave a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column of this blog.  I love to hear from those that use my materials and find out how they are used in class!!

VBS: NYC – Big Apple Adventure

It’s Vacation Bible School time for many!!  Last year, I was asked to create some materials for one of the members of my Christian group.  Her church is using “Big Apple Adventure” by LifeWay.

First off, I created a blank file folder game.  It’s made using the NYC theme, but there’s no designated skill so that each teacher can use it to teach what they need.  I also made a set of concetration/memory cards using Romans 10:17, which is the focus of this VBS.

There’s also a maze with the “Big Apple Adventure” theme, as well as a kriss kross puzzle and cryptogram with that theme based on Romans 10:17.

I also made some decoration materials and some rewards materials.  There’s a set of NYC banners.  For the kids is some small bookmarks and doorknob hangers.  Also, there’s name tags and desk place tags.

It seems to me that there’s more, but I just can’t remember right now.  That’s ok, it’ll be a surprise when you go to download all these materials!!  I hope that you find something that you can use for your VBS, homeschool, religion class, or whatever you might need them for.

Here’s a collage of just some of the items available for this VBS….

If you’re interested in these printables, please just…..

I’ve just got to say that we’ve had a very relaxing weekend.  We slept in so late yesterday and it felt great.  I mean, ALL of us slept in too!!  It didn’t make the day go any faster and we really enjoyed our time together.

The Man got the lawn mowed before a small storm blew in.  Kiddo is swapping out all her seasonal clothes and I’m supposed to be doing the same thing.  I have such a huge “to do” list to do and it seems like when I mark something off, I add one, if not two more things to it.  We’re just enjoying the start of summer.  Soon, kiddo and I will be hitting the books for “summer school” so that we can work on science and social studies.  Have I ever mentioned how smart she is??  Man she loves this stuff and soaks it up like a sponge!!  I don’t care what anyone says, the best decision we made was to get her out of the schools and homeschool her.  Period!!

I do have a game to share tonight as well.  No, it’s not for Memorial Day, but I’m pretty proud of it.  This one is for approximately 2nd grade and has to do with habitats.  This one is “Which Habitat Is My Home?” and has some beautiful pictures with it.  It could be played as a file folder game (ffg) or used as mats.  Players sort the animal tokens into the correct habitat.  This could even be used for the Christian aspect of being “which habitat did God create for me?” type game.

Finally, tonight Lean Green and I watch Nights of Rodanthe and it was just so good.  Yes, it’s a chick flick and we don’t watch many of those.  This one really tugs on the heart strings during parts of it.  The end is  just…..OOHHHH….you’re going to have to watch it yourself!!  I recommend dim lights, a blankie and a glass of wine though.

With that, I’m off.  Ya’ll have a good one!!
