Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about the Bible, have fun, and make new friends. One of the keys to creating a memorable VBS experience is choosing the right decorations. Decorations set the tone for the entire event and help create an immersive environment that will engage children’s imaginations. When choosing VBS decorations, there are several important factors to consider.
When you take a child by the hand, you take a parent by the heart.
What is Your VBS Theme?
The first factor to consider when choosing VBS decorations is the theme of your event. The decorations should reflect the theme and create an immersive environment that will help children feel like they are part of the story. For example, if your VBS theme is Noah’s Ark, you might choose decorations that feature animals and a large ark. If your theme is the Sermon on the Mount, you might choose decorations that feature a mountaintop setting. Check out 2023’s most popular VBS themes & decorating ideas.
Another important factor to consider is the age range of the children attending the event. Decorations should be appropriate for the age range and be visually appealing to children. For younger children, bright colors and larger decorations might be more appropriate, while older children might appreciate more detailed and realistic decorations. Which VBS will you choose?
