Today we had our fifth (and last) day of The Vatican Express VBS. The virtue of the day was Zeal, and the Saint of the Day was Bl. John Paul II.
At Music, the kids practiced all the songs they learned during the week.
At Fun and Games,
they had a quiz on St. Jerome.
At Crafts, they made monstrances. They did this by coloring in a picture of Jesus, gluing it into the inside of a clear plastic plate, then gluing a paper doily over it. They then decorated the plate with sequins and gems. Finally, they took the top portion of a plastic margarita glass (with the bottoms removed), and glued the stem to the plate. When you hold up the monstrance to the light, you can see the image of Jesus.
Snack today was Pentecost Sundaes. (Cute huh?) After snack, the kids played Jesus Says.
Finally, at the Faith station, they watched the Veggie Tales Movie “Gideon: Tuba Warrior.
After that, they performed 5 of the songs that they learned during the week.
It was a great week of the Vatican Express VBS!
