Looking to keep the kids busy this summer but not break the bank? Do you want your kids involved in a service project or two and have fun at the same time? Have we got an idea for you!
Every summer our kids go to VBS (Vacation Bible School). I remember going to VBS as a second grader and learning sign language - and today still remember all the letters of the alphabet! Our kids enjoy going, meeting new friends, learning new songs and dance moves, gathering donations for worthy causes, and finding out how much they are loved. The service projects range from collecting canned food for a local food pantry to raising money for an outreach in Mexico.
Most VBSs are free although some do charge a nominal fee. They are usually in the morning for 3 hours and will provide a snack for the kids. Our local radio station has a list of local VBSs in the area. You can also check out churches near you and see if they are offering VBS this summer. It's a great offering for the community that churches provide.
One church even had VBS at night and had free dinners for the family before the VBS started. We LOVED that one!
No matter if it's at night or during the day, participating in a local VBS is sure to be something your kiddos will enjoy. And who knows, maybe your kiddos will learn something there that will last for a lifetime. Bonus!
