Xperience the meaning of the Bible stories through arts and crafts.
Day 1: In Creation Station the kids will be creating their very own Kidsville. Today they will be making the most important thing in their town—themselves! This is to remind them that Jesus always wants His children around. The alternate craft for the day is a dog collar/shoelace lanyard for the Bible Pals.
Day 2: Kids will have fun learning about how God cares for us and how we can care for each other. Our homes should be a place with a loving and safe atmosphere, where we learn to care for others. Today we will add to our Kidsville by creating and decorating our home. The alternate craft is a mini shoebox bank that will be used to save money for Operation Shoes. The kids will take their bank home and bring it back on the last day of VBX.
Day 3: Through the Bible lesson, kids will learn that Jesus is with them, just like He was with the disciples in the storm. Today the kids will create a boat for their Kidsville that will remind them that Jesus is always with them and that they can be there for each other. The alternate craft is decorating your own bandana.
Day 4: At Creation Station kids will learn that forgiving others is important. Kids will add a cross to their Kidsville because the cross reminds us that God is loving and forgiving and we should forgive others too! Kids will also make signs as a reminder that God is our guide. The alternate craft is a cross made with popsicle sticks and pennies or a cross bird feeder.
Day 5: All week the kids have been creating the different components of their Kidsville. Today they will create the town where they can place all the different elements that they have completed throughout the week. The town is a reminder of how Jesus visited Zacchaeus’ town. Kids will learn that Jesus believes in them and they should believe in others. The alternate craft is a customizable cup or tumbler.
