Have you heard the news?! It’s time to strap on your tool belt and secure your hard hat in place, because Lifeway recently announced their Vacation Bible School theme for 2020 – Concrete & Cranes! Through this VBS theme, we’ll be learning ALL about how Christ is the cornerstone of our faith and how He is the foundation in which we should build our lives!
They’ve already posted a teaser video, music that is SO fun and catchy, and a place to pre-order your Concrete and Cranes directors kit so you can get in on the action early! Catch a glimpse in the video below of how kids will be building on the love of Jesus this year:
Take a look at a few other Concrete and Cranes resources that I’ve already put together to help you make your VBS a success!
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 2020! Many 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!

PLEASE PASS ON THE VBS LOVE:
After your VBS has come to an end, please reach out to a fellow church in your area to see if they could use any of your leftover VBS supplies. Many churches (often small congregations) elect to not have a VBS each year because funding is too tight. Just think about all of the additional children that could be presented with the gospel because donated items made VBS at a church possible!
Will your church or your children be participating in Lifeway’s Concrete and Cranes in 2020? Do you have other fun craft ideas you’d like to share with us? Leave a comment below and share the VBS love!
I have ordered a director’s kit and have not received it yet. How soon will I get it?
Laura Tucker says
Have you tried checking with Lifeway? I’m sure you ordered the kit trough Lifeway, as I do not sell the kits. 🙂
Shelley Erfourth says
I have been trying to find the cutting directions for the construction vest you have above. Can you send me the link?
Laura Tucker says
Hi Shelley! I don’t have specific cutting instructions for the pictured vest, but I found cutting instructions for a very similar one here (linked below). I’ll be sure to add a reference link above!
