VBS is one of the most fun weeks of Kids Ministry—and definitely one of the most tiring ones. Aren’t you glad you don’t have to do it alone? That’s why it’s important to focus on those leaders who give it all they’ve got during that intense week! Make your volunteers feel wildly special by creating a table filled with animals galore!
Start crafting your table by laying green, white, brown and/or blue cloths. Add levels and texture to your table with cake stands, wooden crates, plants (real and faux), and for fun, throw in some stuffed or plastic animals. I added a world globe and binoculars to give a wink to the theme. If you have an instant camera and some candid photos of your leaders, that would add a fun flair as well.
Remember, your snacks don’t have to be intricately hard to make! The lion was fashioned from cut red, yellow, and orange peppers, store-bought hummus, and pretzels. I baked the muffins and the cupcakes from mixes, but those could be purchased already made from your grocery store.
The cute giraffes? Well, those are mozzarella sticks and pretzels—but I’m going to let you know that I had a hard time getting them to stand. That’s why you see only one! So, I suggest that you make just one, set the bowl of cheese sticks and pretzels next to it and encourage leaders to have fun making their own!
These were all fun to make. But remember, you don’t have to come up with them on your own. You’ll find lots more snack ideas in the VBS 2019 Snack Rotation Cards.
Go wild and have fun!
