Missions Under the Northern Lights
Are you leading a missions rotation this year and drawing a blank on how to decorate your room for Missions Under the Northern Lights? Well, it’s a good thing for the Decorating Made Easy with Clip Art CD. This handy book includes step-by-step instructions to help you create an environment like the one you see here:
Decorating Made Easy is also filled with tons of other ideas in case you want to do simple and quick decorations.
Use these tips to get your decorating juices flowing:
Tip #1: Save artificial Christmas greenery. Your church may have a large supply of artificial greenery for use during the Christmas season. Undecorated Christmas trees will make a fabulous woodland forest. Ask other VBS leaders and church members if they are willing to bring you their artificial tree for use during the week of VBS. And watch for those after-Christmas sales.
Tip #2: Light up the night with Christmas lights. Hang Christmas lights and shimmering fabric from the ceiling to create an “under the stars” feeling in your missions room.
Tip #3: Super-size it. New this year is a Super Duper Size Backdrop that gives you instant “wow!” It features all six natural wonders, so you can use them together as a giant mural, or you can separate them.
Tip #4: Cover the ground. If kids are going to be sitting under the Northern Lights, make sure they’re comfortable by covering the floor with artificial turf.
Your kids are going to have a great time learning all about missions this summer during Amazing Wonders Aviation VBS!
