Inspired Lifeway Galactic Starveyors Hallway Decorations
Night Sky blue or black looks dramatic and builds excitement when your Starveyors head to the Clubhouse for Bible Study. Create this simple backdrop in your hallway to make an impressive VBS Hallway Décor for Lifeways Galactic Starveyors Theme.
The use of unlikely items such as trash bags. You can get a 5 count large black trash bags from Dollar Tree. At a Super VBS conference at Swift Creek Baptist Church they used trash bags on the wall for part of the recreation decorations as pictured below.
As your Starveyors journey through the halls they will enjoy the simple details of small and large stars, planets hanging from the ceiling (Made from paper lanterns and Christmas Tree decorations.
Add a moon here and there from self adhesive shelf/book covers. Add glow in the dark stars or twinkle your stars with battery tea light candles.
Add some handmade planets or purchase these great planet inflatables from Lifeway.
Starveyors will walk into the Clubhouse for a Galactic Bible Study. Your clubhouse will be filled with stations to help keep Starveyors moving around the room as you explore different aspects of the Bible Lessons. My favorite age group to work with is Kindergarten. Keep in mind my decorations are geared more to that age group. I have learned the importance of keeping them moving and transitioning to different parts of the room will keep them interested in learning as help them retain more of the lesson. You can find an overview for 1st and 2nd grade Bible Study here and 3rd and 4th grade Bible Study overview.
Lifeway places Kindergarten with the preschool age, I like the rotation of having a different place to go for music, crafts and missions however with the setup my home church uses we have all three of these rotations in the classroom so I create my room in four different areas.
Bible Story time in my classroom is typically down on a carpet. Here we introduce our lesson of the day and welcome any new Starveyors. We do a brief announcement of our missions project collection and how many VBS Bucks they have each earned.
Lifeway generally has 4-5 Bible Activities to reiterate the Bible Lesson. You can check out all 5 day lessons for Kindergarten here.
Around your clubhouse fill the walls with posters.
Lifeway makes it pretty simple with these. If you are a small church or supplying your own decorations consider looking for posters from NASA or other space posters.
Galactic Music rotation for our kindergarten class is in our classroom so I create a specific area in our classroom designated for music. Like Bible Study we use the carpet area so our Starveyors can get up and move around. Below is picture from Lifeway Galactic Starveyor for Worship Rally also serves as the area for music rotation.
Create your background similar to where your church is located if you are in a more rural area using trees is your friend.
If you are in a more city area making a skyline with the clubhouse on top might be better suited. You can make them out of the thick foam or use cardboard.
Cardboard Trees are simple to make. Invest in a hot knife if you are able. This will save you frustration and time in cutting.
Galactic Missions. We have found it very helpful for kindergartners to sit at the table while watching the Missions Video. If we setup an area of chairs without table we have wiggly bodies that tend to be disruptive. Hence we have learned the table helps with them keeping calm and attentive. This is also the area in the classroom we have our prop telescope to remind starveyors at our world around us can greatly be affected by our small acts as one person.
Galactic Starveyor Preschool Crafts from Lifeway can get costly depending on the size of your expected attendance. I am all for keeping the cost per participant low, so I created the list of alternative galactic starveyors crafts that you can ask for donations from your church.
Simple items such as straws, pipe cleaners, party ribbon, beads, construction paper and many other craft items can be purchase at Dollar Tree.
These pipe cleaner stars below are made from Pipe Cleaners and Straws. You can see the full Galactic Star craft tutorial from this link.
Simple crafts for preschoolers are always a great alternative, like the construction paper apple with worm. Full Apple/Worm Stick tutorial can be found at this link. Use construction paper, piple cleaners, tape and popsicle sticks all purchased from Dollar Tree.
We journey through the halls once again and make our way over to recreation and snacks. I am always impressed with the decorations that come about in our snack area. Linda and Gordon do a wonderful job.
Complete your table settings with these silver star plates from Dollar Tree. They come in a 12 pack. Perhaps your last day of VBS can be the special day with Star plates if you are keeping expenses low.
