Sneak Peek Week—Crafts

I know you haven't even gotten through 2012 and we're talking 2013 already. But hey, that's the world we live in on the VBS team. Anyway, I am going to give you a heads up on a few craft supplies you might want to be stashing away for next year.

Wondering what to do with all those extra plastic Easter eggs? Save the bottom half of each egg for crafts next year!

Got any old CD jewel cases sitting around? Save them for a weeklong craft idea in 2013!

Drink up and save those empty water bottles, you're gonna need them.

And of course no VBS week would be complete without the use of craft sticks in some fashion.

For those of you out there who like to use our Club VBS option, you might need to save spring-type clothespins, felt in bright colors, and brown paper grocery bags.

    How many eggs should we save? Does each project only require one-half of an egg, or are several pieces put together?

    How exciting that we can start putting stuff back for next year's VBS! As each year passes, our budgets (ours anyway) seem to get smaller and smaller. It is great that we are able to use so may items that are either low cost or free! Very curious what these crafts will be!!

      There is a children's craft and a preschool craft that will use water bottles. For the children's craft the size doesn't matter as you will be cutting the top portion off of the bottle and only using the bottom.

      For the preschool craft the 12-16oz would probably work the best.

    Thank you for the advice I work in a grocery store our Easter eggs always go 90 percent off to get rid of them. I can get those for about 25-40 cents depending on the size of bag. I have a set budget like Sue and I like the super sampler coming out 1st of December I can get the items we need for almost all the snacks clearanced out from Christmas over stock and the dates are good till vbs next year saves a lot of money did it for 2012.
