Hard to believe it’s nearing VBS season already! Last year, we did Group’s Journey to Egypt.
Here are some tips from our Vacation Bible School Evaluation Forms:
- We had a Minute to Win it game time before the program officially started. After kids were registered, they went into the sanctuary. Instead of having them sitting around getting bored, we played 4 or 5 quick games, picking a few kids to come on stage and the rest were watching. This was a great way to keep kids engaged and prevent the wild running around that usually happens!
- Have a few people posted at the doors of the Marketplace. We held our marketplace in the gym and sometimes in all the hub-bub, a few kids would try to wander outside to see the games or visit friends.
- Make sure kids are gathered around the actors before the actual daily drama started. Sometimes kids would miss half the message because they didn’t gather around fast enough.
