It's that time of year again....VBS or Vacation Bible School for those of you who are unfamiliar with this summer school for kids. VBS is very popular in Alaska, with various churches holding week-long VBS for kids, up through 6th grade, all summer long. Our church VBS is next week. This year I'm in charge of decorating and with the help of many other ladies, we are attempting to change our fellowship hall into an amusement park type of theme. Our theme is IncrediWorld - a week long study of God's creation.
Last Saturday was spent trying to capture the feel of being in the middle of a carousel. I love carousels so this theme was fun for me. I drew the horses, and other people helped paint, color or marker each one. We still have more to do so that's what I'll be busy with this Saturday also.
We also have an "aquarium" at one end and will have a "butterfly garden" and an "aviary" in our hallway.
Each of the classroom doors are decorated to resemble circus tents.
It was my idea but two other ladies did most of the work on the streamers - aren't they beautiful? It starts with a hula-hoop and several roles of crepe paper. Once you have them all attached to the hula-hoop you raise it into place and then twirl and attach all the streamers to the walls.
ps - my surgery got scheduled for beginning of July. The doctor would like to see the inflamation go down prior to surgery. We still have more creative work to do this coming Saturday, so I'll post pics of the finished rooms later.
