At VBS this summer, I did a creation craft with the kids that I thought would be PERFECT for our Pathfinders: I-Spy Creation Bags.
|my daughter's VBS version|
The supplies I used were as follows:
Day 1 – LIGHT - black & yellow loom rubber bands knotted together
Day 2 – SKY & SEAS - blue, shiny gift packaging/Easter egg grass type stuff
Day 3 – FLOWERS, PLANTS, & TREES - fake flower or greenery
Day 4 – SUN, MOON, & STARS - bead stars
Day 5 – SEA ANIMALS & BIRDS - bead sea animal & feather
Day 6 – LAND ANIMALS & MAN - sticker land animal & foam faces
Day 7 – God RESTED - nothing
I brought 4"x 6" sealing baggies from Hobby Lobby, thick masking tape, and rice as well. Don't over-fill the bags, they need to be able to move the rice around to find all the items within. The masking tape is to cover the ends of the sealed baggie so no little hands "accidentally" open their I-Spy bag.
We went through each day of creation (them reminding me what God made that day) and they each got to pick their item to put in their bag. They loooooooved it! At the end, we wrote the girls' names on the masking tape section so we'd know whose was whose.
