Some of kids’ favorite memories from childhood are events like Vacation Bible School (VBS). However, planning for this week long combination of games, stories, music and snacks can be stressful and very time consuming. Plus, there’s always a theme that requires creative and imaginative decoration. So, that’s where we can help!
Popular Vacation Bible School themes
from the past include Western
, and the always trendy, Medieval
. New themes for this year are Jungle
, Under the Sea
, Tropical Island
, Ancient Israel and Space Adventures
For now, I’ll concentrate on the VBS staple, Medieval, and how to decorate without stress and without going over budget.
The first thing you’ll want to think about is making sure the area you are in is transformed into the perfect medieval theme. Starting with the larger decorations will help set the scene of a renaissance affair, then you can add in more supporting elements to bring the whole setting to life.
