VBS Tree House Mat...From Outrigger Island to Journey Off the Map

I wanted to put a mat in my Bible Study Tangled Branch Tree house.  I found a bamboo mat leftover from Outrigger Island VBS.  The blue color just looked too ocean-like when I put it up against the rest of my tree house decor.  I want to share with you a quick-fix to change your ocean mat into a tree house mat.

You can see the blue trim here in this picture.

I used a green burlap duck tape to trim the edges of the mat.  SO easy!


Here is my mat in my Tangled Branch Tree House Bible Study.  This was taken right before I led a conference on 1st/2nd grade Bible Study.  I'll have it set up a little differently when I teach VBS.

Sunday Morning with my 1st and 2nd Graders: Samson

I'm missing my Sunday School class this morning since I'm home with my son who has the flu.  So...I thought I'd share what we did last Sunday. 

After hearing the Bible Story of Samson, our class colored Samson and gave him long hair. 

One boy wanted it braided, so I helped him with that part.  (I love it when kids come up with ideas I never considered!  Such smart kiddos!)

I found the idea on Pinterest.
