A Bit of Horsin’ Around!

Our church puts on quite a Vaction Bible School and opens it to the community for free. It runs a full week in the evening and over 300 kids from pre-k to high school come.  It is one of the best ran VBS’s I have ever witnessed and there are over 100 volunteers that take time out of their busy lives and give back to the kids in the church and community, me being one of them.  This year we also were a church that a VBS publication Gospel Light was there filming the use of their product so it was exciting for the kids to be a part of!

On the last night I wanted to give the group I was in (Craft Group of course) , the Children’s director and the Group Leaders of my 4-year-old daughter’s group a little something to say thank you, since I knew first hand how much work and commitment it took to pull off such a wonderful event!

The theme was “Wild West” and the craft team helped make cute ride’em ponies that were a huge hit with the kiddos, so in capturing that moment, I made goodie bags and a couple of cards!

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of ” a bit of horsey business” pie with me!

  1. How cute!! The little horse on top of the treat bag fits perfectly with the theme!!! 😉

  2. These are so cute!!! I also LOVE that you used twine for a bridle and reins. I just got this cartridge a month ago and I have to find something to use the horse for so I can try this! LoL Thanx, Arin!!!

  3. OMG, I don’t know how I missed this post, but these are so fabulous! I am a horsey girl thru & thru, having grown up on the hunter/jumper horse show circuit, so these are right up my alley! I love how you did their little halters out of twine! And the riding ponies are such an awesome idea & turned out soooo cute! Sounds like everyone really had a blast!
