VBS 2019 is still in full swing all across the country as kids are making some pretty exciting discoveries of the marvelous creatures we share this world with, plus some amazing real-life encounters with Jesus through scripture during the VBS theme In The Wild! While our focus is still set on VBS 2019, the brilliant minds at Lifeway have been getting the ball rolling on their quest to make VBS 2020 the very best one yet! Earlier this afternoon I was anxiously awaiting their theme announcement on Facebook Live and was ooh-ing and aah-ing at all of the magnificent fun it’s going to be!
In 2020, we’ll be buckling on our tool belts, putting on our hardhats and strapping on our boots as we learn how Christ is the cornerstone in our lives, and how he is the strong foundation on which we stand! If you haven’t already, take a minute to watch the theme song video to get a good feel for what this theme is all about. It’s a toe-tapper for sure!
I’ve put together a few fun snack ideas (one of my favorite parts of VBS is the snacks!) to help you get your mind rolling about how you want to treat the kiddos at church for VBS 2020! All of these amazingly cute snacks were put together by some pretty fabulous creative bloggers, so if you like these ideas be sure to swing by their page and send them a little love!
Keep in mind: Many items shared here are from Amazon (you know how I feel about my beloved 2 day shipping) and many items are from Oriental Trading, who each year does an OUTSTANDING job of keeping VBS supplies relevant to the yearly theme. I will make a note of where each item is listed in case you have a preference of where to order. Oriental Trading frequently has free shipping deals, most often on orders over $49.
