Vacation Bible School is a summer tradition that is great for building community and giving kids a good start in their faith as well as for having fun! ShindigZ had tons of inspirational party supplies perfect for creating Vacation Bible School fun!
Every great VBS starts with an awesome VBS theme. Try an Outback Fun theme for a VBS that will be a hit. Invite kids to Hop into the pouch of His protection and learn about Jesus and the Bible.
Use custom vinyl banners and personalized yard signs to advertise for your VBS and welcome the students to the events. Banners a great for encouraging registration, announcing deadlines, marking entrances, and setting a theme. Each of our vinyl banners is printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and is available with or without metal grommets for hanging. We’ll print your custom wording on the banner for a perfect finish. For your Outback Fun Vacation Bible School, try our Outback Vertical Personalized Banner, which features your wording on the print with an Australian road sign and sunset background. The Baby Kangaroo Personalized Banner is another great choice!
Another great way to advertise or decorate is a Personalized Bible Standee. You can add your own customized wording to the base of this Bible standee. It makes a great piece for announcing the dates and times for your VBS as well as for decorating the entrance to your event. The affordable standee stands 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
Next, decorate your venue to look like the Outback! ShindigZ has a fun selection of desert and animal themed decorations perfect for transforming your venue into an adventure down under. Start creating the illusion with a Desert Evening Mural. The mural is made of paper and stands 11 feet by 5 feet. It creates a fantastic backdrop for the whole scene.
Further the look by covering the floors with sand colored gossamer or decorating flat paper.
Set up straw bales for children to sit on during story time, discussions, or sermons. The straw bales will be more fun than chairs and they’re perfect for the theme. Each of our straw bales is approximately 29 inches wide by 12 inches high and 19 inches deep.
Everyone loves Australian accents! Check out all of our Outback Fun Decorations for tons of ways to add to your theme.
Use an Outback Welcome Sign to mark the entrance of your event. The welcome sign is perfect for setting the mood right from the entrance of your party. The sign is 8 inches tall and 22 inches wide, plus it’s printed on both sides of the paper so it can be suspended from the ceiling if needed.
Add our Australian Street Sign Cutout to bring the Outback atmosphere to your event. The Australian Street Sign Cutout is packaged in a set of four assorted signs and printed with a different design on each side. Each cutout measures 4 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Hang them around your venue for a fun, simple accent.
Our Baby Kangaroo Standee and Baby Alligator Standee are awesome decorations that kids will love taking pictures with. Our Kangaroo and Koala Peel N’Place Decorations are perfect for adding a wild accent to your walls!
Don’t forget balloons! Balloons are a decorating classic that kids love! Create balloon bundles of vibrantly colored balloons (orange, blue, green) in odd numbers and secure them with coordinating curling ribbon to the backs of chairs or to balloon weights. For an alternative, scatter balloons around the room, filled with cool air, or suspend them from the ceiling with a variety of lengths of curling ribbon for a really neat effect.
If you’re having snacks or a meal at your Vacation Bible School, you’ll need table decorations too! Cover your tables with gingham checked tablecovers edged with raffia tableskirting and use bandannas as napkins or placemats. They’re good for keeping kids clean and as favors! Set the table with coordinating plastic tableware and cutlery. For a centerpiece use a pith helmet filled with peanuts or another dry, healthy snack.
Having favors or prizes on hand for giving out to reward good answers, special effort, or great participation is a nice way to make children feel special or loved, or to encourage participation. We have some great VBS favors including religious notebooks, wooden Jesus fish necklaces, cross keychains, Jesus religious bracelets, and religious stamps. These are fun, simple items that kids will love!
