VBS Day 1 Weird Animals

It's that time of year again...

Vacation Bible School

This year's theme is:

Group VBS

Here's just some of our supplies for the
Imagination Station~
wikki stix, rocks and washi tape...

The Bible Point today...

When you feel left out... Jesus loves you!

Today's Bible Verse:
"And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Matthew 28:20

Today's craft was two-part:

#1 Make paint blobs for a later project in the week
#2 Use your imagination to work with wikki stix

The paint blobs turned out amazing - take a look-

Do you see a cupcake?

We used card stock to make it more sturdy with acrylic paint.

Approximately 145 paint blobs!!

Can you find the giraffe?
So cool!!

Lots of butterflies too!

The children were really surprised by the results.
I know they will be thrilled to see them dry and ready for the next part!

I can't wait to see what the children create with them!

The next part of our time in Imagination Station involved playing with..

Wikki Stix

Wikki Stix are waxy string that beg for your imagination!

Children love playing with them!

Once you teach a few basics, let the children's imagination run wild to see what they can create!

Here are just a few of the children's work...

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

What a beautiful day to go sailing!

A butterfly about to take flight!

A gorgeous flower pucked from the imagination of a child!

A tree standing firmly after the recent storm.

Little hands working...

Watching a child work out their ideas is a fantastic thing to watch!

A child writing their name!

Twisting the Wikki Stix together is always fun!

A lollipop!

A truck and car!  I love it!!

The optometrist just refilled her prescription!

Don't call the exterminator on this darling bug!

A guy playing!

Hands at work!!

A sphere!

And another precious butterfly.

As you can tell we had such a wonderful time in Imagination Station today!

Each child left with their own packet of Wikki Stix.  
They were excited to take them home to show their parents what they could create!

Thanks to my fabulous volunteers and all the teachers that make craft time so successful!
It is so much fun seeing so many smiles!!
