Behind the Scenes: The Cage

Have you ever wondered where we keep all of our fun VBS sets? Or do you want to know what items we keep from each yearly theme (everything if it was up to my friend Pam)? Well, you're about to find out.

We really have never shown our beloved cage to the outside world, but we just couldn't keep it a secret anymore. Let me introduce you to the cage. It's a seriously fun world.

Do you keep all of your fabric for decorating VBS? Do you have bins of all sorts of fun props? How do you organize it all? Leave a comment below!

    Thank you for your tour. I loved recalling the different VBS themes over the years. I have been doing the Bible Study for my church for several years and have been saving the scenery. My problem is the materials are taking over my basement.. I like the way you organized your materials in stackable tubs.

    Hey Chris - We donate as much as we are able to various missions organizations. For the past few years, we have donated to Samaritan's Purse for use in Operation Christmas Child boxes. I actually had the honor of going on a shoebox drop in Ecuador last year and was able to sit by a child who opened a box and found craft supplies from Boomerang Express in her box. It was an amazing experience!

      I really wish Lifeway would be willing to give the teaching materials to missionaries too. It's a shame that they are only willing to donate the craft items.

    Patrick - We are working to get a flippable catalog on our website, which hopefully will be helpful to you. You can get a printed catalog from one of our store locations, and there is one in every VBS Sampler or Super Sampler. If you're not close to a store, let me know and we'll put one in the mail for you!

    Hey Chris - Crafts are not the only materials we donate. I just happened to see a craft pack when I was in Ecuador. Is there a missions organization you represent that you would like us to consider for donation? I would love to talk to you further about this - can you email me at
