Summer 2018 is getting closer, and churches all over the country are gearing up for an exciting summer filled with Vacation Bible School activities! One of the most popular VBS themes for 2017 was Maker Fun Factory by Group, and this year the VBS masterminds have been setting sail and putting together a curriculum that will help spread the Gospel through the message that God is always with us, even through the toughest storms we may face in life.
This year, we’re putting our goggles on and getting ready to make a splash with Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus!
You may have seen my recent post where I did a roundup of some of my FAVE Shipwrecked inspired decor on Amazon that fit perfectly with the island theme (you can find that post here, by the way!) This particular post is yet another roundup (y’all know I love a good roundup) of even MORE island themed supplies at one of my other favorite retailers, Oriental Trading!
I also want to point out a few additional guides that I’ve put together that you may find helpful during your VBS planning this year! Take a look at the links below for more fun Shipwrecked ideas!
If you’re not familiar with Oriental Trading, allow me to introduce you! Oriental Trading is one of the largest leading merchandisers in the world that specializes in party, craft and DIY supplies. It’s widely popular amongst churches and schools because it has such a HUGE variety of supplies for every need at stellar prices.
This year, Oriental Trading created their own spin off of Shipwrecked when they launched their own sports line of VBS supplies and decor. Here’s a few of my favorite finds that I think you’ll really love!
Good luck with all of your VBS endeavors this year! I know you’re going to have an amazing time, and it’s always such a blessing to be able to share the word of God with children. Lifeway sure knows how to make it fun with all of their creative themes, don’t they? 😉
Have you already completed your VBS for this year? Are you currently preparing for VBS and have some more fun ideas for decor ideas? If so, I’d love for you to share them with me! Just drop a comment below and share the love!
**NOTE: If you happen to purchase a good bit of supplies for VBS this year, please consider finding another neighboring church in your area that could use your items when you are done with them. Being from a smaller church myself, we have greatly benefited many times from larger churches in our association that were gracious enough to donate their items when they were finished with them. Many churches have a very small budget for VBS each year, so any donated amount can be monumentally beneficial!
