VBS 2013: Kingdom Rock

Some of the kids sang the theme song during church Sunday morning.
Last week our church held VBS.  This year's theme was Kingdom Rock: Stand Strong for Jesus.  The kids had a wonderful time (as always) and learned so much.  I was in charge of preschool crafts again this year and had a great time doing that.  I thought I'd share a few pictures from our week.
Laura and I made this castle from cardboard boxes for the preschool craft room.

 We made these watercolor crosses the day we learned about Jesus dying on the cross.  We started with a blank sheet of white paper with a cross traced on it.  The kids had to color the cross with white crayon.  Then when we water colored the paper the cross stayed white.  It was a wonderful way to show the kids that even though we can't see Jesus (like when the colored the cross white) we know He is there.  If we trust, He will show us the way (like when we painted the page).
We made wooden photo frames that held a picture of them from earlier in the week.
We also made a prayer book from their hand prints which they filled with pictures of who they liked to pray for.
