VBS ~ Snack Ideas {Operation Overboad}

Profile Picture

This year I am co-directing VBS but of course I still have to give my two cents on what will be on the menu for SNACKS!! Cokesbury has some good suggestions, but I always try and do fun things that the kids will enjoy, so here goes:

Day 1: Since I have been doing snacks we always do a quick/easy SNACK MIX  that the kids always LOVE… with our water theme I was thinking that this year we would use goldfish, swedish fish, oyster crackers, crasins, gummy worms, m&m’s  and chex mix

Day 2:  Jello Aquariums {blue jello with gummy worms, fish etc in the jello, goldfish swimming around}

Day 3 :  Kid Sushi  {roll ups}

Day 4:  Design a Fish!! (this is my favorite idea, yet!! take Peppridge Farm Goldfish bread and spread low fat cream cheese, give the kids a platter of veggies and fruit and let them design their own fish! Each table picks a winner and then the each get a little prize!)

Day 5: popsicles (water day!!!)

Cause 6000

We are in full planning mode for this years Vacation Bible School! This years theme is Operation Overboard “Dare to GO DEEP with GOD!”.
Last night we had our first planning meeting and to go along with our “water” theme I am so excited to say that I shared my idea for our mission, CAUSE 6000. My dear friend, Deanna Bell’s daughter, Liz and her best friends, Ashley Stinson and Kayla Sutton started CAUSE 6000. Cause 6000 is a non profit to help the people of Guana have clean drinking water. After attending the DO GOOD experience in Atlanta, Ga in the summer of 2010 they left feeling empowered to DO GOOD!! I would say that having a goal that summer to raise $5,000 to build a well was doing good!! Now almost 2 years later these 3 girls along with lots of support from Christ Church in Hickory, NC  they have rasied $70,000 and built 12 wells. HOW AMAZING!!!! Kayla has just finished her freshman year of college, Ashley is heading to UNC-C and Liz to CAROLINA this fall, even with having all these big changes in their lives they are heading to Africa the end of June. Words can not express how proud I am to know these girls. I pray everyday that my child will make a difference in the life of others, what a fine example these girls are!!
