We’ve been having VBS at church this past week, and it makes me nostalgic for my own Vacation Bible School days. The two big memories that stick out are 1) those boxes of craft supplies that we would get from CPH, which even at such a young age seemed so strange. (“This is filled with popsicle sticks? and I have to share?”) and 2) the Kool-Aid.
The best thing about the Kool-Aid was making Kool-Aid. Our church had a giant enamelware bucket that we would stir it up in, and I’m sure we had the flavor/sugar/water ratio all wrong because all we cared about was making a giant purple ocean and creating a swirling vortex with a wooden spoon.
Or, it could be I’m imagining the whole thing. I have a terrible memory, y’know.
