Vacation Bible School: The Grand Finale!

We’ve had lots of fun this week at Vacation Bible School and now the only thing left is the concert and carnival!

Everyone returns to church at 5:00 to watch all 400 kids perform the songs they’ve been learning…

Then it’s outside for the carnival!

Just to fill you in, the kids have been earning tickets all week long for good behavior, learning Bible verses, helping one another, etc….

NOW it’s time to redeem all those tickets!

Sponge toss game, anyone?

Every VBS staffer sets up a carnival game. The kids hand over those tickets to play. (We don’t do prizes or anything – the reward is FUN!)

This is the box hockey game that Mike built for our booth:

The real beauty of this carnival is the creativity of the booths!

Originally called “Fairy Floss”, the process of making Cotton Candy was invented in 1899. The electric cotton candy machine used centrifugal force to spin and melt sugar through small holes. In 1904 the invention was introduced to the St. Louis World’s Fair. Due to fair goers’ curiosity, they sold approximately 68,655 boxes of cotton candy for 25 cents a box.
