VBS 2018 may be coming to a close in your neck of the woods, but fret not! The brilliant minds at Lifeway have been getting the ball rolling on their quest to make VBS 2019 the very best one yet! Earlier this afternoon I was anxiously awaiting their theme announcement on Facebook Live (shown on their Facebook page) and was ooh-ing and aah-ing at all of the magnificent fun it’s going to be!
If you’re a fan of the Lifeway curriculum, you’re probably getting your head in the game right now with their 2018 theme Game On! Game On: Gearing Up for Life’s Big Game will take kids on an epic adventure in a league of it’s own as they learn about God the Father who is always with us through every obstacle and challenge we face through life. He will never leave us and never forsake us, and this theme is all about cheering for the REAL MVP who came to die on the cross and save us from our sins!
In 2019, we’ll be switching gears and heading deep into the brush to a quest to encounter some of the Earth’s most marvelous creatures while learning about real-life encounters with Jesus in scripture with the brand new theme, In The Wild!
They’ve already posted a teaser video, music that is SO fun and catchy, and a place to pre-order your In The Wild starter kit so you can get in on the action early! In the mean time, I’ve put together a few fun craft ideas to help you get your mind rolling about how you want to see the kids get creative at your church for VBS 2019!
All of these super cute craft ideas were put together by some amazing bloggers, so make sure you swing by their page and show them some love!
And if you’re looking for something that can be done a little more on-the-fly and a little less “gather a bunch of supplies to make these” types of crafts (no shame AT ALL in that game, y’all!) then perhaps some of these Wild Encounters/In The Wild craft kits from Oriental Trading will be right up your alley!12 Pack Safari Picture Frame Kits – Oriental Trading
