Ahoy, mateys! Word on the deep seas is that Group has officially released their 2018 Vacation Bible School theme, and we’re all really going to be feeling the motion of the ocean as we weather life’s storms and come upon a desert island and learn that God is always with is, even through the toughest waters. It’s all happening in Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus, coming Summer of 2018!
Group always puts together a wonderful curriculum for VBS every year. You may remember learning about God the great Creator during Maker Fun Factory during Vacation Bible School 2017. This year is going to make an even bigger splash, and I’m ready to help you get your thinking caps on and start planning out your crafts, decor and more!
I’ve got a few alternative craft ideas that I found while perusing Pinterest the other day. I think they’ll fit in with this theme perfectly! But before we get started, can we just talk about how awesome this VBS hype video is? It really gets me pumped up and ready to dive into God’ Word!
Without further adieu, here’s a collection of some pretty awesome craft ideas that can be used as alternative craft ideas for Shipwrecked! They’re all made by some pretty spectacular bloggers, so if you like a craft make sure you visit them and leave them a little 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 island-themed craft kits will be right up your alley!
Will you be participating in Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus during the Summer of 2018? If so, what crafts will you be making? Do you have any decor or craft ideas? I’d love to hear how your church family is going to make Shipwrecked the BEST VBS yet!
