If you’re like me, it’s crunch time. There are 13 days and counting until our VBS week, so VBS is just about all I can think about these days. That’s why I’m PUMPED to share some of the best VBS resources from Jen Kline over at (aptly-named) The Best VBS. Here are some of my favorite posts or resources from Jen’s site:
1. 45 Ideas for VBS Directors – I mean who doesn’t want a fully-curated list of 45 ideas for VBS? This list covers everything from decorating tips (like what kind of tape to use to make things stick without ripping up the wall) to thoughtful volunteer appreciation gifts (free food!) to organizing tips that help you stay sane. Explore all 45 ideas here. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find creative inspiration for that last pesky task or decoration you’ve been trying to tackle.
2. 8 Things Your VBS Director Wants You To Know – This is the post to share with your volunteers. Jen helps you say everything you want to say to your team.
