Whether your VBS takes place under the stars or in a darkened classroom, the fun increases when learning activities, games, and decorations glow in the dark. In addition to the many glow-in-the-dark items found at party stores and online, you can make posters and decorations radiate with glow-in-the-dark paint you make yourself. Conduct a Google search for supplies and instructions for creating your own paint.
To start the glow-in-the-dark fun look no further than the cover of the VBS 2017 Catalog. Expose the cover to bright light then watch the logo and stars shine when the lights flipped off.
Inside the catalog you'll find two items that have a radiance of their own: the VBS 2017 Galactic Starveyors Cups, and the 4x6 Theme Stickers.
Whether you're planning a VBS launch party or a fantastic glow-in-the-dark VBS Celebration check out these fun glow-in-the-dark games from the VBS 2017 Administrative Guide for Directors.
Tic-Tac-Toe - Use glow sticks to create a tic-tac-toe board. Use two different color bracelets for families to play.
Ring Toss - Attach glow sticks to a paper tube and secure it to a surface. Provide glow in the dark necklaces for kids to toss on the tube.
Bowling - Place glow sticks in empty water bottles. Add water if needed. Place glow in the dark bracelets inside a wiffle ball to use as the bowling ball.
Tag - Assign each team a specific colored glow in the dark bracelet or necklace. When a player is tagged, he must make an “X” with his arms over his head until another member of his team unfreezes him.
“Planet” Hunt - Put glow in the dark bracelets inside easter eggs (planets) for kids to hunt.
Ball Toss - Use glow in the dark balls to create a ball toss with a basketball goal or hula hoops suspended in the air.
