Vacation Bible School season has rolled around again, folks. Here’s the ten kids you may meet this summer:
1. The Jumper
This kid jumps and jumps and jumps to every song on the VBS playlist. Interlude? No problem. Just keeps jumping.
2. The Fruit Ninja
The Fruit Ninja easily could be mistaken for The Jumper. The difference is in the arms: The Fruit Ninja chops the air. If there’s motions to a particular song, this kid goes above and beyond.
3. The “one more color” crafter
They insist they just need to add one more color to make their craft perfect. We asked to put all the markers and crayons away. It’ll just take a second, they tell us. We know that second will snowball into much, much more.
4. The Volunteer
The skit needs a child to come to the front and participate? Clean up after snack? Pass out papers? We have ready and eager volunteer.
5. The “We’ll Explain to Mom/Dad”
Scraped knees, bloody blisters, tie dye mishaps, glue in hair… the list goes on. Something happens that warrants a mention to the parents.
6. The Watchers
The Watchers watch. You try to engage them. You sing. You do the motions. You use silly voices. They might crack a smile or laugh once or twice. But mostly, they just watch.
7. The Token Master
If your VBS uses a token system for good behavior, you know this kid. This kid strategizes the prizes.
