Decorating Your Snack Rotation

Snacks at a volcano? That’s right. But don’t worry, this volcano won’t spew. It’s the Paricutin Volcano in Mexico, and it’s one of the natural wonders of the world.

Try these decorating tips to get your lava flowing.

Tip #1: The Decorating Made Easy with Clip Art CD contains clip art of church ruins that you can use to enhance your snack area. Simply use an overhead projector to trace the clip art onto insulation foam. Remember to draw out the lines on top of the plastic sheathing, then cut the foam, then remove the plastic sheathing before painting. Put a base coat of paint on the foam and don’t use spray paint on the foam.

Tip #2: Use two-inch insulation foam to create the volcano. Create ridges in the foam with a hacksaw or heat knife. Paint the foam and hold it together with T-pins and duct tape. No hammer or nails needed!

Tip #3: Go the extra mile for the “wow” factor. Adding a smoke machine behind your volcano really makes it come to life!

Tip #4: Protect your tables with the VBS 2012 Tablecloths.

Tip #5: Other accessories that will make your snack area fun include the VBS 2012 String Flags, VBS 2012 Whirleys, VBS 2012 Quick Scene™ Visual Pack, VBS 2012 Inflatable Airplane, and the VBS 2012 Quick Scene™ Super Duper Sized Backdrop.
