VBS 2010- HERO Headquarters
I was in charge of our church's Vacation Bible School (VBS) this year! My first year of actually being in charge! It was very hard work planning a whole week's worth of fun for kids! But SO rewarding! My journey began in January when I ordered the curriculum of HERO Headquarters, and we had a few long weeks of working on decorations and props and planning in June-July, and finally it all came to an end the week of July 18th! Doug was Maintenance Mac - an everyday super HERO - in our beginning skit every night! Alden liked to tag along with him while he said his lines, so we nicknamed him "mini mac" or "bread stick boy" (one of the other super HERO s in the skit was "Pizza Polly"). The kids seemed to think he was really cute! I had a HUGE support cast this year and it all turned out so well! We averaged about 45 to 50 kids each night and did crafts (that I planned out ahead of time - but did not actually teach the crafts this year) such as super HERO capes, masks, reusable bags (to be a hero for the environment), bracelets, and picture frames to hold a picture of their VBS group. Doug's mom made almost all of the snacks this year ahead of time and they were really cute! One night we had cupcakes that looked like sheep and another night the kids got 2 sugar cookies shaped like a men - one had sprinkles and the other did not - they were to represent Naaman and one of them had leprosy and other did not.
