VBS 2012

Hey blog world! Today was the final day of my church’s VBS! VBS stands for Vacation Bible School. This year our theme was SonSurf Beach Bash ! It was such a great week! Every single day we had a different big question and big answer. I forget the big questions (I’m unfortunately very good at forgetting stuff as you probably already know) but I remember the big answers. Monday was meet up with Jesus, Tuesday was look up to Jesus, Wednesday was join up with Jesus, yesterday was open up to Jesus and today was fire up for Jesus. We did all sorts of cool stuff at SonSurf Beach Bash! We played games, made crafts, sang songs, listened to stories and had snacks! I really enjoyed the snacks! They were super yummy! On Monday we had wraps with strawberries and what I assumed was custard on the inside and a piece of licorice was tying it up. Tuesday’s snack was a lemon Timbit on top of a ritz cracker with whipped cream. On top of the timbit was a gummy candy and also a chocolate chip. Wednesday’s snack was a sea urchin (chocolate covered pretzels arranged to look like a sea urchin) and also pieces of marble cheese and pretzel sticks arranged to look like a cross. Yesterday’s snack (my favorite one) was a cupcake and also some trail mix. Today’s snack was a sea turtle! It was made out of a white chocolate chip, 2 pieces of bread with a slice of ham in the middle and also chopped up gummy worms. I really enjoyed all the activities we did. Crafts was so much fun! We made all kinds of cool stuff! We made a plastic ball with seashells and sand on the inside which we can hang in our window or on our Christmas tree, we dyed towels, we decorated paper bags, we made board games and today we colored bean bag turtles (I named mine Harriet after Franklin’s little sister ). The games were quite fun too! We played a game where we all got into a circle and held hands and we had to try and pass a hula hoop around the circle without letting go of each others hands. The leader made it real hard on us because we eventually had 7 hoops going at once! It really wasn’t easy then! We also played a game where we had to hit a beach ball back and forth without letting it hit the ground. Our record was 70! We bet the younger kids (their record was 50)! We also tried playing volleyball with bedsheets and a beach ball today. It wasn’t very easy! Music was definately my favorite part! The songs we learned were all AWESOME! My favorites were “I Am The Way” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qwF4vnuszM, “Everybody Lets Go” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezMkXrQ2_fw (that was our theme song), “J E S U S” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P5sNy39P9M and “Look Up” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_PkwDCTc08. Even though today was the last day of VBS I wasn’t sad because on Sunday all the kids that went to VBS get to sing all the songs that we learned! Also afterward there’s a family fun day! It’s gonna be a blast! Did you go to a VBS this year blog world? What was your favorite part? Tell me in the comments!
