I bet you like to sing, especially Vacation Bible School music, right? For our church the Worship Rally and Music is in the same area, our sanctuary. Below are just a few VBS 2018 Game On Music decoration ideas. You can get the entire DIY Step by Step Tutorials for all the Music decorations by purchasing the Game On eBook and SVG files.

Just a note: I am in no way affiliated with Lifeway. Ideas presented below and in the eBook as well as printables are created by me and are inspired by the 2018 VBS theme.


1. Entry Way Silhouettes

I wrote about the large silhouettes of Sports Players and Band Members below for the Stage, but I also think these would be great for entry ways. Our church has two entry hallways that lead to our Sanctuary. You can purchase the Game On Inspired Decorations eBook with SVG, PNG, PDF Files for $14.99 and get over 30+ printables.

You might be able to find some music stands around your church. If not, you make your own from tripods and some cardboard. Simply use a large piece of cardboard around the size of 11 x 17 inches and tape it to the tripod. Add a 1 – 2 inch width by 17 in long cardboard strip to the bottom of the larger piece sticking out so it looks more like a Locker.
