From your main set:
- We know you’re sick of those brown rocks, but don’t get rid of them quite yet. Turn them into moon rocks for your main set!
- The boxes used to create rock formations can be used to stage the Rover.
- The carpet tube used in the Leaning Arch can be used as the pedestal feet of the Lander or to create a telescope in Preschool Space Place.
- Starry Night Plastic from KidVid Cinema will come in handy throughout Stellar VBS.
- Blue Sky Fabric or Plastic will help set the scene in Stellar Bible Adventures.
- Tissue Grass Mats used to create a textured Cactus can be repurposed as a pasture for sheep in Stellar Bible Adventures.
- Transform the Bloomin’ Barrel Cactus into a planet by removing the tissue paper flower, adding rings with wired ribbon and hanging from the ceiling.
- Sometimes VBS snack time generates recyclables that will make great components for a Gizmo wall panel for a Stellar space station. Things like foil pans, lids, and bottles.
Additional summertime items to stock up and store.
If you live in a place where pool noodles and hula hoops are only stocked in the summer, you may want to consider watching sales and clearance shelves for the following game supplies.
Pool Noodles: Real talk, can you ever have too many pool noodles?
Jump ropes: A colorful and easy way to create a line in the grass during games.
Hula hoops: Used in a hip-hopping fun game for preschoolers!
Sponge balls: Watch out, the youth group may ask to borrow these when VBS is over.
Large Sand Pails: Perfect as water buckets, economical cones (just flip them upside down) for obstacle course or boundary markers and a great way to sort crew supplies.
