In The Wild Bible Crafts

Posted on Updated on

These are the crafts that can be used with the Lifeway’s In The Wild V.B.S. program. 

Although most Vacation Bible School curriculum programs provide or sell their own Bible crafts, many times they have nothing to do with the Bible story of the day or not much thought went into designing them in the first place.

My hope is that these crafts will help make planning your Vacation Bible School a little less stressful.

Tower Of Babel

Posted on Updated on


Divide your children up into groups and give each group equal amounts of blocks: (ie. wood blocks, Lincoln Logs, Legos, jumbo blocks), Styrofoam or plastic cups.

The groups will race against each other to see who can build the tallest tower, in a given amount of time.

After time runs out, measure the towers to see which group has built the tallest tower. Then mix up the groups and play again.

You can even play a simple, but fun game of Jenga.

Homemade Watercolor Paint

Posted on Updated on

 Have you ever wanted to make your very own watercolor paint? Homemade watercolor paint comes together easily with a few simple ingredients. Making it is easy, the hard part is waiting for it to dry.



  • 4 Tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • food coloring


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the baking soda and the white vinegar until it stops fizzing.
  2. Add the corn syrup and the cornstarch until you have a smooth consistency.
  3. Pour the mixture into individual egg carton cups, filling each about a third to halfway. You can also buy empty water color trays online.
  4. Add five to eight drops of food coloring to each cup, mixing it in thoroughly until you get the color you are looking for.
  5. Let the paint dry overnight.
