I had a neat idea this year and decided to do a VBS with Christmas in July as the theme. We called it 'giving not getting'. The children participated in making gifts for this coming Christmas and we will continue to work on them through the fall. I made some fun loom knit snowballs and we played games with them. We made fake 'snow' out of a science kit I found at creative toys and US playthings store in Plano. We also sang traditional songs that the children had never heard.They did so well learning them. These are songs we all grew up with but are no longer allowed in the schools. Hark the Herald Angels sing, Mary did you know.., Joy to the World, Angels we have heard on High, and other songs. We had a great time. Here is a picture of the snowballs before they were taken home.
