Update: Quick Update And V.B.S. 2016

Posted on Updated on

I wanted to quickly update you on how far along I am on the updates that I planned on completing two weeks ago ūüėÄ

For the most part I am caught up with the updates. The Bible crafts, coloring and activity pages are all updated. All I really have left to do is to finish updating the lessons on my site and uploading a few dozen new ones as well.

Things will go back to normal soon and I hope to start posting new crafts this coming week.

Also on Monday I will once again post the Vacation Bible School Poll I post each year.

The poll helps me know what V.B.S program or curriculum I should design the crafts for. Remember that I only create crafts for the most voted V.B.S. program.

So make sure to come back Monday and vote for the V.B.S. program you church will be using this year!

Update: V.B.S. Crafts

Posted on Updated on

This is just a quick update on where I am on the V.B.S. crafts.

I am still working hard to finish uploading all the crafts and coloring pages for the three V.B.S. programs.

I am about finished uploading all of the coloring and activity pages, I will start uploading the crafts in a week and hope to finish uploading all the crafts in no more than a month.

Things might get a little hectic with Easter coming up very shortly, I will need to plan crafts for the holiday, but I will be doubling down on V.B.S.
