VBS-Third Night

Doctorology and Mandy (Kaleb, our Youth Minister and Mandy, our church secretary) Doctorology did a fun experiment which resulted in a small explosion. The kids loved it!

This week is getting long, but it has been so much fun. The kids last night were a lot of fun...we had 14 in our class and a couple of them are kind of rowdy but overall they are really good kids. We have one girl who is allergic to wheat, flour, dairy and sugar so it's hard when it comes time for snacks. What do you all suggest? Something that she can enjoy while the others are eating a cookie? She seems to accept pretty well that she can't have that stuff, but it makes me feel bad.

The skits each night have been hilarious. We have a great group of actors at our church! I had no idea they could get so goofy.Theodore Tweedle, the town sherrif (Andrew, a real policeman), Otis, his trusty Deputy (Gavin) and Sadie, the owner of the Good News Cafe (Alycia)
Otis giving the Sherrif one of "them thar spa treatments".
Petunia Periwinkle (Tiffany), an aspiring actress and singer, is visiting Sadie at the cafe.

Dr. Marvolo (Eric) is trying to sell the audience on his "fix every ailment miracle cure" made from pink albatross wings.

The kids were gullible enough to use their fake dollars to buy up all his ointment - he promised to be back in 1 hour but I think he's gone for good.

Will Otis and Sherrif Tweedle capture Jake the Snake, the scariest bank robber in the West?
Will Petunia Periwinkle get out of Discovery City to go to San Francisco to become a star?
Will Sadie learn to love living in Discovery City?
Will Dr. Marvolo come back with the cure for all ailments?
And will he take Petunia to San Francisco as he promised?

Stay tuned for the next installment.......

ps VBS stands for Vacation Bible School, a popular activity in many churches in the United States. It's usually a week long activity during the summer - we teach children about God using stories, crafts, skits, etc.

I have been having fun looking at what all you are doing at VBS. What a talented bunch of people. I don't know about allergy foods. That is something I didn't ever have to deal with.

Looks like fun! I remember helping for VBS days. Yikes, the food algeris sound difficult, how about just some fruit?

Lynn said...

Fruit sounds good to me too. I'd ask her what she can have and then have that available.

Looks like a lot of fun!

Stop by your local food co-op or look in the health food section of your grocery store. There's all kinds of good treats you can pick up. Sounds like gluten-free products without dairy would be the best. People are not allergic to sugar, but some kids might just be sensitive to sugar. Something made with fruit or fruit juice would be an excellent choice (a fruit roll-up perhaps)!

You're doing a good job Patty on helping for VBS.

This sounds like great lessons for the kids--how creative all the adults are....!
Hope you are blessed in all you do!
