Years of being involved in children's ministry mean I've survived my share of crafts involving glitter, paint and glue. However, the time and effort required for cleaning up after messy crafts means less time interacting with the kids, so I prefer crafts with minimal clean up time. While preparing for a children’s camp one fall, I stumbled across the idea of making a leaf garland out of paper leaves and yarn. The garland required only basic art supplies, but the best part was how simple and fast it was to clean up when the children finished! Below is our version of a Leaves of Thankfulness garland craft.
One of the driving forces that motivates us at Concordia Supply is our heart for missions!

Exhilaration and exhaustion hit full force after Vacation Bible School ends. You and your volunteers have likely been spread thin, and are ready to kick up your feet until Christmas bells start ringing.
As tempting as it can be to hit the snooze button on Children’s ministry during the fall, there are invaluable opportunities for outreach in the post-VBS season. Fall can be a time to harness that VBS momentum, and reach not only kids, but whole families for Christ.
Are you taking every opportunity to multiply the impact of your VBS?
