For VBS, I chose to have the nursery this year. The last two years I had the preschool crafts. Boy, I needed a break from that.
Since the nursery kids don't participate in the Penny War (boys vs. girls) we have each year, I decided to make a quilted blanket to go along with the story of the Four Friends who lowered their sick friend down through the roof on a blanket to get healed by Jesus. I outlined the kids' hands on cardboard, cut them out, and then did blocks with dimensional fabric paint outlining those hands. I put each child's name on the blanket as well.
We have put the quilt up in the church's building and will sell it by silent auction. The money raised will go to a local Christmas charity called Chimes for Charity, Magi Boxes to be sent to Honduras, and Medical-Mission-in-a-box to be sent to Africa.
