So you are the designated VBS Director! Am I right? Hmm, I know you are either the VBS director or you are sooooo excited about Vacation Bible School that you are soaking up everything about VBS you can! I gotcha pegged!
Let me tell you a secret before you continue! I’ve never been a VBS Director, because I enjoy leading Kindergarten and doing decorations. I have been part of a women’s team that together we planned out VBS. My roll was just the Decorations! So the items and decorations below are the items that helped in previous VBS Planning Meeting.
VBS Staff Meeting Decorations
Get your staff excited about Vacation Bible School by decorating your meetings. Give them ideas and helpful hints. A great team is a prepared team. Let’s face it, decorations are what gets your team and children excited about Vacation Bible School. Make it fun and tips are always welcome.
Lifeway VBS 2018 theme is Game On – Gearing up for Life’s Big Game. Center your decorations around the sports theme. Your teachers and volunteers are the Coaches for the various rotation areas. The children are the players, cheerleaders and drumline. Equip your Coaches to the best you can.
Make sure to include as many sports as you can. Make it easy to stay organized by using the Game On Rotation Folder Labels for each of the Rotations and Coaches (Teachers). They are free to download. These are also included in the Director’s Help section of the How to Decorate for Game On VBS eBook.
Decorate your tables with Sports theme Shower Curtains from Dollar Tree. You can also find the football field tablecloths generally found in January/early February around the Super Bowl.
Provide each of your Coaches with a Whistle to help them direct their athletes and musicians from one rotation to the next rotation. You can get these yellow, blue and green 6 pack at Dollar Tree. They are located in the Party Decoration area with the Party Favors.
Have a Prize table. Provide each of your Coaches with a paper to write their name and place it in a bowl to pick from. Through out your meeting select a name or two and have those coaches select a prize (decoration) for their classroom. This is always a favorite.
Since Game On is surrounded with a sports theme add some depth to your meeting decorations with hanging sports balls inflatables from the ceiling or even adding some Athlete Silhouettes to the wall.
Provide your Coaches with a taste of a possible easy craft that the athletes and musicians might make during the VBS week.
