BACKYARD VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Join us in our quest to bring VBS to every backyard!
Welcome to the Bolt Backyard VBS! With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads you and your kids step-by-step through each of the 3 days, BOLT is designed to bring all of the fun and faith-formation from bible school to the comforts of your home!
Are you ready to BOLT into action? BOLT is a quarantine-friendly VBS designed for families to experience at home. During BOLT, kids will participate in fun games that illustrate what it means to listen to, focus on, and follow Jesus.
Invite friends and neighbors: If guidelines permit and if you feel comfortable gathering with other people, invite friends, family, and neighbors to participate with you. It’s a terrific way to share the good news of Jesus with your community.
Press play: When you’re ready, gather the kids around and press play on the video. You can find all 3 videos on our Facebook page. Each video will lead you and the kids through the entire experience. Occasionally, the video will ask you to pause and do something. When you’re finished doing it, press play again.
Play the games: When the video prompts you, press pause and lead the kids in playing the games. Each day has 3 games. One of the games each day is demonstrated in the video, the other two are not. You can read more about all of the games below. There’s no rush to get through the games, so take your time and have fun. Some supplies are provided. Play all or as many games as you want.
Origami time: It’s so simple, yet fun! The video will show them exactly what to do. We included the origami paper so just have it ready! This may be more difficult for the younger kids. If so, you can help or have them move on to the coloring or sticker set.
Bible Story Time: We have included coloring pages the kids can color during the Bible story time. If you have preschoolers, we’ve also included a sticker set.
BOLT VBS MUSIC: BOLT VBS features music by Ben Calhoun of the chart-topping Christian band–Citizen Way. If you would like to listen to the 3 featured songs (plus many more) with your family, you can stream them through this playlist on Spotify.
Share Your Adventure With Us: This year we can’t all be in the same place, but we can all share our adventure! We encourage you to share pictures and video on our Facebook event page – Bolt Backyard VBS.
