First, I have to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed my little break from blogging. I accomplished a lot and feel really good about everything that I’ve done. This set of materials for VBS is no exception and I’m very proud of how it turned out. I hope all of you are as well and will be using it this summer….or in the future!!
This year, I made 10 different things to go with the “Agency D3” them for LifeWay’s VBS this year. They’re all secret agent related….and I think quite fun!! Any printable that has the Bible verse use is the NIV (New International Version). If you need a different version, please contact me and I’ll see if I can change it (no promises though).

Here’s a list of this years materials and suggested uses….
1. Scanner Handprint Craft – Use paint or stamp pad to put each child’s handprint on this scanner. It includes the Bible verse and is a fun simple craft.
2. Agent D3 Badge – Fold where indicated and let the kids have fun with this secret agent ID badge.
3. Secret Agent Card – You can place each child’s photo on the card or leave the “secret agent” image. Print the daily symbols on sticker paper and place on the card each day the child is in VBS. Plain paper could be used as well and then glued on each day or at the completion of VBS.
4. Evidence Tag – Students can note what they learned (evidence) or it has many other uses as well.
3. Evidence Report – Child can fill this out after each lesson/activity for what they learned. An area at the bottom for the teacher/parent/counselor to fill out for “grading”. This also has many other uses.
6. Fingerprint Card – Use paint or ink and place each students fingerprints on this card. They can then look at them under a magnifying glass to see how each one is different (God made us special and unique). There’s other uses as well.
7. Entrance Sign – Place this on the wall/door for kids to “scan to enter” their hand each day as they arrive or to enter each activity/room as they enter (if they move around during the day).
8. Secret Agent Pass – Use these for students as they move from room to room or activity to activity. Can also be used a snack/lunch pass, bathroom pass, and so on.
9. Secret Agent Notepad (blank pages) – This comes with a “leather” cover and blank lined pages to take notes, copy Bible verse, draw, or many other things. The lines are different types and sizes to use to suit the needs of the ages/grades of kids. Also, there’s one blank page for drawing.
10. Secret Agent Notepad (activities) – This comes with a “sleuth” cover. All the pages inside have a variety of activities including a word search, daily maze, Bible verse games, and more. There’s also a couple blank pages and note pages.
The covers for the notepads can be used for whichever notepad you want. I just wanted to put one cover per notepad. Also, the pages in the notepads can be combined and used as wanted or needed. You might want the leather cover with 3 lined pages and 1 activity or 4 activities and 1 lined page. Just fold the pages and staple for a complete notepad of your choice!!
To download any of these printable activities, just click the link in the title or description of each item. I hope that you can use them and that the kids get tons of enjoyment from them. Please share some photos of your children with the activities and I love your comments, so leave one on this post or use the “contact” button in the right hand column….thanks!!

We’re finally done with creation and it’s 2-week lessons. Now, we’re moving on to “God made me/I am special”.
This year, I wanted to do something really fun and special for this lesson. I knew that if I was going to implement something new, I’d have to have it be our craft project. I searched and I searched and I couldn’t find a thing that I wanted to do. Finally, I clicked way back in the search results instead of what was right in front of me. Low and behold, I found it!! What I found was a handprint poem, but it wasn’t Christian based, so I knew I had to dig further. Finally, I found it!!
I made a frame and put the Christian handprint poem in it. I printed it on cardstock and was on my way to class. I picked out 3 colors of paint to let the kids decide which they wanted to use. I put a small amount of the paint on paper plates and they placed their hand on it and then on the cardstock inside the frame and above the poem. For each student, I put the paint on the paper plate to avoid mess!! I used the vertical one for my class, but have included 2 other horizontal ones and each features a different poem.
Here’s a thumbnail view of the framed poems…..
Poems are by “Unknown” and from an internet source.
If you’d like to download this handprint craft, just…..
I hope that you enjoy this craft project. If I change anything ever in the future, it’ll be to add their name and date within the frame, however, I simply wrote it on the back so the parents can frame as is. My class really had fun with this one!!
