I wanted to quickly update you on how far along I am on the updates that I planned on completing two weeks ago 😀
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!
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.
This post is just a quick heads up about a few things that will be happening in the first couple of months on my blog.
In the next few weeks I will be posting a few new coloring pages with the permission of Patmos Editorial Company. A few will be from the Old Testament and some will be from the New Testament.
If you have never heard of Patmos Editorial Company they are headquartered in the state of Florida and offer Christian resources and materials in Spanish. Feel free to visit their website. HERE
Now that the holidays have passed I will be kicking it into high gear and will shortly resume posting a new craft every 3 days.
And lastly keep your eyes out for the crafts I will be uploading for the three winners of the V.B.S. 2015 poll. The crafts will be up around March/April.
The poll is now closed and the winners are:
SonSpark Labs- Gospel Light
Journey Off The Map- Lifeway
In the next couple of months I will be working hard on coming up with the crafts for these three V.B.S. programs.
I will post the crafts up in March/April.
Here is the official Vacation Bible School 2015 poll.
Make sure to vote for your favorite or I won’t plan the crafts for your preferred V.B.S. provider.
The poll will be open for a week and then the three top voted winners will be announced. (I mentioned yesterday that I would have it open until December, but “polldaddy” only allows me to have the poll running for a week at most.)
This is just a quick head up. Tomorrow I will be posting the V.B.S. contest poll that I have been doing for the past two years.
The poll helps me know what V.B.S program or curriculum I should be designing the crafts for.
Since I’m short on time I only plan the crafts for the top three voted V.B.S. programs.
The poll will go up tomorrow and it will stay open until December when the three winners will be announced. Then in April I will post the crafts themselves.
If you want to make sure that I include your favorite V.B.S. provider, leave their information in the comments section and make sure to come back and vote for your favorite between the months of November and December.
The winners of the V.B.S. Runner Up poll are Weird Animals– Group and Workshop Of Wonders– Cokesbury. Ill have the crafts for these two V.B.S. programs up in two to three weeks.
As for Wilderness Escape– Group, since it came in last, I will not be planning the crafts for this V.B.S. program. However I do have a craft for the crossing of the red sea and will be uploading one soon for the manna from heaven.
Next year make sure to get your friends and fellow ministry leaders to vote!
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)
Day 2: Was Jesus More Than Just A Good Man? (Mark 6:1-6, 30-56)
Day 3: Was Jesus Death Real? (Mark 14:22-28; 15:22-47)
Day 4: Is Jesus Alive? (Luke 24:1-48)
Day 5: What Do I Do With The Evidence About Jesus? (Acts 2:14-42; 1 Peter 3:15)
After two months the poll has closed and the winner is…. Lifeway’s Agency D3. As the winning V.B. S. program I will make three different crafts for each of the five days of the program. This way you can pick and choose wich ones you prefer.
For the three programs that tied for second place, (Weird Animals– Group, Wilderness Escape– Group), and Workshop Of Wonders– Cokesbury) I will try, and I emphasize the word TRY, to come up with at least one craft for each of the days of the program. But since they came in second place I cannot give a guarantee that I will be able to do this.
Now that the poll has closed I’ll have the winning V.B.S program’s crafts ready mid-spring, just a few months away. So keep your eyes out for my V.B.S 2014 crafts.
