Vacation Bible School

19 Mar

I have a special love for VBS.. Not only is it part of my job to organize and run VBS at our local church, I really think it’s a fun week for my kiddos…  They play games, do crafts, enjoy fun snacks, and learn about God…  What a fun combination!  Check out your local churches for their VBS programs!  They are usually free or require a small fee and you can often times VBS hop to several different camps in your area!  They really are a ton of fun and what’s better than summer camp :).

4th of July Hats

2 Jul

This year we are going to the famous (at least that’s what we hear) Vail, Colorado 4th of July Parade…  We thought these hats would be fun to wear to the parade or even if we happen to be “in” the parade (Young Life has a float this year).  For all of my Minnesota friends, we used to make a tradition of going to Edina’s annual 4th of July parade, which is spectacular and highly recommended!  I’m sure a town near you has a parade too and it really is a fun tradition to start with your kiddos!  OH and how fashionable could you be with a hat like this????  Make one today!

Here’s the scoop:

You’ll Need:

Construction paper

Stickers, clip art etc… how ever you want to decorate your hats


***  I basically cut one inch strips in a large piece of construction paper…  I let the kids go crazy and decorate to their hearts content.  Very easy and very fun!  Here are a couple pics from the Edina Parade….
