Cave Quest VBS: Decorating Spaces – Rockin’ Tunes

Our church used Group Publishing's "Cave Quest" VBS curriculum this summer.  I've shared many of our projects, but you may be missing out on a big picture idea of how our spaces looked.  This room was proof that you don't have to spend a lot of time or money to make VBS special for the kids!  Here's how we decorated a super simple music area. Sorry for the poor quality of these pictures - a lot of them are from my cell phone {I'm not sure why my sleep-deprived VBS directing self wasn't…Read more …

Cave Quest VBS: Decorating Spaces – Preschool Cave Pool

Our church used Group Publishing's "Cave Quest" VBS curriculum this summer.  I've shared many of our projects, but you may be missing out on a big picture idea of how our Preschool Cave Pool space looked.  This area is definitely one of our most elaborately decorated.  The preschoolers have their own program in our gym building.  They come to opening and closing with the big kids, but stay in their building for all other activities.  This works really well for us, since this age can be challenging to keep on a tight schedule.

Our church used Group Publishing's "Cave Quest" VBS curriculum this summer.  We used our fellowship hall for both Bible Quests (story) and Cavern Cafe (snack).  It worked out really well since snack only happened once each evening.  I've linked below some of the photos to specific projects.  Feel free to holler if you have any more questions!

Cave Quest VBS: Decorating Spaces – Bible Quests (Story)

Our church used Group Publishing’s “Cave Quest” VBS curriculum this summer.  Bible Quests (story) was located in our fellowship hall - and they also traveled outside the front entrance of the church a few nights and used a classroom off the fellowship hall.  This was definitely the space that changed the most throughout the week.  The story crew changed the decor each evening to match that night's story.  I’ve linked below some of the photos to specific projects.  Feel free to holler if you have any more questions! Sorry for the poor quality…Read more …

Cave Quest VBS: Decorating Spaces – Foyer Entrance

Our church used Group Publishing's "Cave Quest" VBS curriculum this summer.  I've shared many of our projects, but you may be missing out on a big picture idea of how our spaces looked.  When kids entered the church through the main entrance, they came into the foyer.  The foyer was decorated like the inside of a cave with brown paper walls from floor to ceiling.
