VBS Crafts: The Story in Pictures

Above:  one of the t-shirts created.  We actually did those on day 3.  On day 1, we made noisemakers, so that children would have instruments if they needed them. 

Noisemakers are a great way to use up old grains.  Someone bought me some steel cut oats that I'm not likely to use, since they require so much thinking ahead.  They make a great sound.  Below you'll also see some adzuki beans that I bought back in 2000 for a recipe which I'll never make again--they, too, make a great sound.


Above:  the empty containers used for making noisemakers.  Children had a variety of ways to decorate the outside.

Above you see hands shaping clay.  Below, the clay drying on paper plates.

A good time was had by all!  Or, by most people.  And everyone had at least one day with a craft that brought them joy.
