Happy Tuesday, friends! If you’re starting to think about how you’ll decorate for Colossal Coaster World, you might want to check out these short videos. We set up our time lapse camera while we were putting together the sets for our VBS video and catalog shoot so that we could show you a glimpse of how the sets go together.
Have you started planning for VBS 2013? If you haven’t, no worries– you aren’t behind just yet! Some of the VBS pros have already ordered their Super Sampler or Backyard Kids Club kits and have begun collecting ideas to make this year’s VBS a success. If you are coordinating VBS for the very first time this year, planning can seem intimidating! Know that we are here to help you every step of the way.
For you pro VBS planners, what’s some advice you’d share with those who may be coordinating VBS for the first time?
How early do you order your Sampler/Super Sampler materials?
When do you begin building a team of volunteers? How do you train them?
When do you start working on decorations?
Looking for 2013 Club VBS resources?
I’ve been thinking about ways to bring Colossal Coaster World to life inside the church building. Besides the scream-inducing, stomach-churning that takes place during the plunge of a really fun coaster ride, one of my favorite feelings about riding a coaster is feeling the wind on my hair and face! We’ve had to re-create that feeling for a few of our 2013 photo and video shoots lately!
One way to take your 2013 VBS photo booth to the next level might be to bring in a strong fan or leaf blower to make sure your kiddos get the “wind blown” experience for their photos– it makes for some really fun pictures! What do you think? Swap some of your ideas with us, and check out some fun DIY roller coaster photo booths! (And stay tuned to purchase the official Colossal Coaster World VBS 2013 Stand Up.)
Good Thursday morning to ya! We’ve added a few new things to our Colossal Coaster World Pinterest board lately– have you seen them? Make sure you’re following LifeWay Kids on Pinterest for lots of fun ideas for VBS 2013 and your kids ministry!
It’s never too early to start planning, right? If you’re itching to get a jump on VBS 2013, check out our Colossal Coaster World board on the LifeWay Kids Pinterest site. There are already lots of great ideas. Here are some of my favorites…
A perfect roller coaster experience for younger preschoolers!

Okay, maybe all the hairiness is from the gorilla suit I’ve been wearing!
But honestly, I have been working!
So what have I been working on? I’m glad you asked!
This week, I’ve been working on the VBX 2013 Preteen Leader Pack. I love working on the VBX material! It’s always jammed packed with visuals. Here’s shot of the cover.
One of the other items I have been working on is the VBS 2013 Supersized Coaster Backdrop. This backdrop really excites me! Take a look at it and see if you can see why I love this one SO much.
Bucket rides? Nope, that’s not it! But I do love the bucket rides. Such a fun way to get from one side of the park to the other side and relax while you are doing it.
Roller coasters? Getting closer! It does have something to do with the roller coasters! Take a look at the next photo.
Check it out! You can connect multiple Supersized Coaster Backdrops and make one COLOSSAL Coaster backdrop!
It’s back to work now! Have a great weekend and God bless!
