We had to do a last minute Switch A Roo with a craft this past Wednesday for VBS. I searched several stores for materials that I could not find. It happens! However, I’m glad we switched at the last minute because we switched to a really big hit. We had the kids make these cool crayon drip art pieces. Even the boys got into it! If you work with kids, you know first hand that not all boys are a fan of craft time. It’s challenging finding crafts that fit their personalities and get them excited to participate. After glueing the crayons to the top of their canvas, the boards were sat outside in the heat.
As the boards sat in the heat outside they began to melt causing crayon wax to drip down the canvas board. The more sunshine that hit the crayons the more beauty that continued to drip. The crayons were changed by the heat. When we follow Jesus, he is the heat that changes us. When we surrender our lives to Jesus he changes our hearts. We become more like Him and less like the world. Just as the crayons melted down creating a beautiful piece of art, We also become more beautiful the more we know Jesus.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
Also, all the other craft materials have been located and we will continue with that craft on Sunday. Life doesn’t always go as planned. There are moments when you have to be ready to make it happen in a different way.
Thanks Kayla for the photo. We will be posting final results later this week.
