We’re just kicking off the start of the brand new year, and with the new year comes a brand new VBS theme to get excited about! Group VBS (the masterminds behind 2019’s Roar! theme) recently announced their theme for this summer, and it has us all ready to climb aboard to experience mountains of fun as we discover the Savior that pulls us through all of life’s ups and downs!
Here’s a look at the promo video they just released to help you get a good picture of what next year’s adventure is going to look like!

To help get your VBS craft planning on the right track, I’ve put together a selection of fun craft ideas and supplies that fits the locomotive theme so that you can have quick and easy access to some really fun projects! Many of these craft ideas are geared toward smaller children, so if you’re on the hunt for ideas for older youth, a few ideas I like to keep in my back pocket the pique their interest more are tie-dye t-shirts, nail art, slime, mosaics, painted canvases and jewelry making.
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
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 your leftover VBS supplies. Many churches (often small congregations) elect to not have a VBS because funding is too tight. Just think about all of the additional children that could be presented with the gospel because donated decor made VBS at a church possible!
Have you already started daydreaming about the fun locomotive adventure you and your church will be taking during the summer of 2020 with Rocky Railway VBS from Group?
