Iv’e been quite busy lately so that is why I haven’t updated the site in a while, but things have finally gone back to normal.
Most of the crafts for this years Vacation Bible School’s have already been uploaded, but in the next two weeks I will finish uploading the rest.
Also, I have finished updating all of the printable pages on my site. For every coloring page there is now a puzzle activity page available as well. I plan, in the next few weeks, on placing both templates on the same web page. This way on the same page you will find a bible stories’ coloring page and puzzle page. If the story also has a connect the dots, maze or color by number, it will be included on the same page as well.
And finally I am considering providing colored in versions of my coloring pages as well as bible images/cliparts that can be used in power points, bulletin boards, flyers or any printed or digital document. I would like to know if this is something you guys would find useful, otherwise I will spend time updating other areas of the site.
This will be a quick post updating you on the status of the updates to the site.
It is taking me a bit longer than expected to finish all the updates. I underestimated the time that I would require.
That being said I have finished updating all the crafts on my site. This coming week I will finish updating all the coloring and activity pages on my site. The week after that I’ll update the lessons and add a few dozen new ones.
The month of July has always been the most hectic month for me every year. It seams as if this is the moth when I’m at my busiest.
Lucky for me this year I have even more projects to work on 🙂 and activities and projects at church just add to the chaos.
- Schools starting in a month.
- Projects with my church media ministry regularly keep me busy.
- I have my weekly lessons to prepare for.
- We are currently organizing our V.B.S. program and decorating three days a week.
- This year we decided to come up with our own kids program at church. This project seams to be taking most of my time since this includes planning the lessons, teaching material, handbooks, uniforms, crafts, designs, mascots, you name it…
I am about two weeks behind on Crafting the Word of God and about a month behind on the Spanish version of my site.
I just wanted to upload this short post to let you, my awesome readers know what’s going on with my schedule and why its affecting my frequency of posting. Hopefully as the month comes to an end the chaos will settle down enough where I can dedicate a lot more time into planing more and more crafts.
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.
Yes they provide the convenience of not having to plan them yourself, but your kids end up going home with something they would have preferred to leave in the trash.
Just like I did last year, and as the winner of the V.B.S. curriculum poll, this year I planned the crafts for Lifeway’s Agency D3. Starting tomorrow and continuing until Wednesday, I will post Bible crafts for each of Agency D3’s days; thats Day 1-5.
As I said last year, my hope is that these crafts will help make planning your Vacation Bible School a little less stressful.
So make sure to come back all week and check out the Bible crafts for this years Agency D3.
Day 1: Is Jesus Really Gods Son? (Matthew 3:13-17; John 1:29-36)
