Summer Bible Club for the Grandkiddos!

A few years ago we hosted a bible club for the grandchildren during their summer vacation. It was a lot of fun and we made some great memories. So, my granddaughter asked if we could have another bible club this summer.

We ended up having 2 bible clubs. We focused on 1 scripture for each club. We did a bible craft and an activity along with fun treats plus we played a few games. The children really seemed to enjoy it. I hope we made some fun memories they will remember for many years to come.  They are all growing up so fast and I know the day is almost here when they will not enjoy spending the night as they have in years past. I'm so thankful for the time we're able to have to together and that their parents make our relationship a priority.

The grands love to bake chocolate chip cookies!

We made 'glow in the dark' slime! Here they are adding the ingredients.

It really did glow in the dark.

My granddaughter wanted to make cake pops.

The girls' wrote out their scripture on construction paper and then glued it to a can to make a pencil holder.

Miss M. wrote one of her bible verses on her arm before Grammy could stop her. :-)


Another bible craft.

We made homemade bubbles. They were HUGE!

We had a great time!

  2. Oh what an excellent idea. My little grandsons have gone to a couple of VBS's this summer and LOVED it! I think I will plan to do this with them next week, as the older one has preschool summer day camp this week at church.
    Thank you for a wonderful idea.

  3. Are you a "Grammy"? My kids call my Mom "Grammy" too. That name is surely special!

  4. What fun! What wisdom to pass on Scripture this way!

  5. Georgene, they are so cute! What a great idea to have your own Bible school. Wish I had thought to do this when we were visiting our grandkids in Texas last month. The two grandkids here in Florida have been to a week of VBS, and they go to a church program every Tuesday, but our daughter and SIL are not so good about church and Sunday school. That's where the prayer comes in! mostly this summer has been spent watching the rain fall.
