Safari Adventure Vacation Bible School

This past August we had the privilege of being involved in VBS at our church. Our family was able to help with planning, preparing, and then working throughout the week.  It was so much fun, and we made great memories. I would like to share some ideas of what was done. Feel free to use them if you ever plan a similar theme.

Our program was called "Safari Adventure" and we based it on traveling to Africa. Our decorating crew really outdid themselves and I am including a whole bunch of pictures of all their neat ideas.

Sign on the front door

When the kids entered, they walked through a cave made of butcher paper rocks.

Spiders on the cave walls
Crates of 'live animals' by the front door

African silhouettes on the walls - made of vinyl table covers, spray paint, and poster board.
African "treasures" in crates

Plenty of jungle scenes....trees made of paper covered pool noodles, and vines made of twisted paper.

Centerpiece was Victoria Falls, made of cardboard and paper 'rocks' and vinyl tablecover waterfalls.

David Livingstone's camp site

"old" African maps

Camp fire wood

A real canoe docked near the camp site

Animal tracks were seen everywhere! (spray painted)

Lots of posters of animal pictures
