National Parks VBS


Monday is only 2 days away and this year’s Vacation Bible School will be traveling to the National Parks. I get to work with the preschool aged kids this year and my room is the Bear Cave. I take absolutely no credit for the creative ideas, I just put up what I am given. Once again, Suzanne has outdone herself.


Can’t have anyone getting lost, now can we?

Welcome to the lodge, the home base for the 2s and 3s.

I taught them the Crazy Moose Song….

Snuggle up to the fire.

Have some juice with Fred the Moose.

Step outside the lodge and come on over to the Bear Cave. When the lights are out a blacklight will show the stars and bugs scattered around this cozy den.

ssshhhhhhh The bears are cozied up for a nap.

The little cave was a cardboard box and we covered it in brown paper that had been crumpled up. We set the whole thing no 2 chairs.

They really loved learning Going on a Bear Hunt.

Look carefully and you might see a bird or two perched high up on the rocks.

Even the caribou like to watch the cubs as they play.

Here are the main sites that the kids get to see, a different one each day.

Next is the Wilderness Survival room.

Here is the auditorium where we have opening and closing every day.

This year’s mission project is to build a hanger for a new church and purchase donkeys and carts for local pastors in Africa.

For the Volunteers

A staff room was available for everyone to take a short break.

The teen volunteers had their own room to relax if they wanted to go.

Here is the Glacier Expedition.

We learned about Paul and Silas in jail.

Come see the kindergarten rooms.

Someone in town found the moose at Costco and word quickly spread, that is why you it in several rooms.

This is the Pre K room.

Little Bear Country

Follow the tracks to the Wildlife Refuge.

And finally the Trail Challenge.

I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. My oldest is 20 and currently in the National Guard. My daughters are 15 and 11 and involved in everything. I believe life is difficult enough, that we can find ways to make the everyday just a little easier and perhaps even more simple. I love to cook, shop and make things with the kids.
