Vacation Bible School is quickly approaching, and I will be teaching the class of 12 year olds. Our theme this year is RBP’s Polar Extremes. It’s a winter theme, obviously.
Here’s my problem: Every year, the classes try to WOW the kids by having a totally decked out room. Last year, we did a dinosaur theme, and that was easy. I used fake flower vines and the boys’ little dinosaurs. It was great!
This year, I am struggling for ideas, and I’m running out of time! Not to mention, I have the WORST room for decorating this year. I have the Missionary Room, so I have to deal with 2 full size beds, a couch, and a love seat being in there. It’s really complicating things.
I’ve already grabbed all of the kids “winter” stuffed animals. We don’t have as many as I thought we did. And, I came up with another idea: I make really cute little penguin clippies for little girls, so I took that idea and made a great big ribbon penguin. I’m going to cover the love seat with my white fleece backdrop cloth, and then I’ll tack the ribbon penguins to it. Cute, right?
BTW – that’s the ribbon penguin I came up with. he’s about 6 inches tall. I just adore him.
Sure, but I need more. What other ideas (ahem, CHEAP ideas being the key) can you all come up with? I really want to impress these tweens by having the coolest room around.
Give me your input. Simple or extravagant, I want to hear it! Help me make this the best VBS yet!
