1 VBS 2008 Custom GARAGE Loving God. Serving Others. Decorating Ideas Turn your church into a custom garage. These ideas will work for all ages. Don t forget to provide shop rags and other Custom GARAGE gear for every participant! Multimedia Resource CD (K-8024) The Multimedia Resource CD is a must have resource for your decorating needs. Over 100 medium and high resolution images allow you to customize your decorating needs, along with PowerPoint slides for use on screen. Decorating photos also provide examples for decorating your stage, registration area, a site area, and a hallway. Use color images of the Custom GARAGE crew and Custom GARAGE cars to decorate the doors of your classrooms and hallways. Bring your VBS to life by enlarging the crew as well as the cars to place around the building. Use the images of the actual Custom GARAGE on a large screen to enhance the atmosphere of the Service Center (opening/closing) area or place the characters and cars as stand-ups around the stage as you recreate the Custom GARAGE at your church. Use the B/W (Black & White) Custom GARAGE coloring pages for extra takehome coloring pages, to promote the theme, as filler activities in sites, or as patterns for making larger images. Use the B/W or color Custom GARAGE logos for making large advertisements inside and outside the church, in printed advertisements, letters and bulletins. Artwork for a variety of Custom GARAGE signs provides you an easy tool for making directional signs throughout your VBS. Photos of the outside and inside of the Custom GARAGE provide opportunities for creating your own authentic garage. Additional photos of signs, tools, car parts, and engines are provided for adding detail for your decorating needs. Blank charts, forms, certificates and letterhead make the job of organizing much easier for the director. You can customize and make as many copies as you need. Shop Rags (K-8032) Five colors of shop rags imprinted with the Custom GARAGE logo are available for use in decorating. Order yours today! Different colors of shop rags work great for designating age groups or teams. Have the teacher and kids wear shop rags and jeans for that Custom GARAGE look. Color 1: All workers in VBS. Color 2: Early Childhood children. Color 3: 1 st and 2 nd graders. Color 4: 3 rd and 4 th graders. Color 5: 5 th and 6 th graders. Use the shop rags as decorative centerpieces on snack tables, serving tables and at registration. Use them to add that colorful Custom GARAGE look on bulletin boards and walls.

2 Tie a variety of colors of shop rags to rope and string them along the hallways as a border or across the front of your room for your opening and closing area. Balloons (K-8015) Assorted colors of Custom GARAGE theme balloons make great decorating accessories. Filled with helium, an electric pump or blown the old fashion way, use balloons for advertising your VBS, as prizes, or as decorations at each of the sites. When using helium additive helps the balloons to remain inflated longer. This can be found at party supply stores. Use balloons to add a feeling of excitement as a balloon archway floats above the entrance into the Service Center or colorful balloon columns add fun and excitement to the stage area for your daily opening and closing. Place balloon centerpieces on your snack tables for added color. Custom GARAGE Checkered Tablecloths (K-8033) and Table Rolls (K-8035) Black and White checked tablecloths and Black and White checked table rolls (100 feet long) are available as an affordable way to decorate. Cover the registration tables, snack tables, or craft tables and make clean up a snap! Add a Custom GARAGE centerpiece in the middle of each tablecloth to add a fun authentic garage look. Use shop rags, tools and tool boxes as centerpieces. Add Custom GARAGE Tire Stress Balls (K-8007), Shop Rags (K-8032), Custom GARAGE Tire Pressure Gauges (K-8008) and Custom GARAGE Water Bottles (K-8016) to give your tables that authentic Custom GARAGE feel. Use checkered table rolls to line the walls of your hallways, the walls of your site rotation rooms, and the platform stage area. Hang the checkered table rolls from the ceiling and use as a checkered fabric background hanging behind your stage or registration area. See the decorating photos on the Multimedia Resource CD for an example of how to do this. Wrap around columns or cover doors of classrooms. All add excitement and give your church that Custom GARAGE atmosphere. Inflatable Tires (K-8034) These life size (4 foot) inflatable tires make decorating for the Custom GARAGE easy. Stack them at the entryway into your VBS. Place one tire flat on the ground, then stand a second tire on its side in the center of the first tire. Hold in place with transparent packing tape. Place inflatable tires at the registration table, all around the platform, in the hallways and use at all the site rotation areas. Hang them on the walls and print Custom GARAGE logos to place in the center of each tire. Purchase inexpensive plastic hub caps at discount or auto parts stores and place in the center of your inflatable tires. You may need to hold these in place with transparent packing tape.

3 Mark the entrance into individual site locations such as the Filling Station Snacks, Custom Design Crafts, Gearshift Games, or Road Map Memory with an inflatable tire. You can hang the sign with the site name in the center! Use the tires as props for a Custom GARAGE photography studio. Take pictures of your kids in garage gear standing next to a stack of tires and a big Custom GARAGE logo for a souvenir photograph from VBS. Traffic Cones (K-8026) These colorful traffic cones come in six different colors and arrive as a set of twelve (two of each color). Great for adding color to your Custom GARAGE theme. Use across the front of your stage to add a colorful shop look. Place on your registration tables to help identify groups or lines. Place at all entrances to the site rotation rooms or line the hallways of your church for a colorful decoration. Place a set of traffic cones around a bulletin board Place a set of cones around your VBS Display in the church foyer to draw attention to it. Place down the middle of your checked table cloths as center pieces. Use as traffics cones during recreation as boundary markers, starting and ending points and for a variety of games. Checkered Table Rolls (K-8035) This decorating tool is a fast easy way to decorate with black and white checkered siding. Use this 54 in. X 100 ft. vinyl rolls as skirting around tables at snacks, registration, on the platform or other special sites. Create an authentic looking Service Center for your Custom GARAGE Opening/Closing area. Run down the sides of your hallways to give that Custom GARAGE look and feel as kids move from place to place. Black Table Rolls (these can be found at any party supply store) Use black table rolls to run down the floor of your hallway. Add white or yellow lines with wide tape to add detail to your highway or street. In addition to your hallways, add a road to the floor of your registration area, center aisle of your worship center, or entrance to site rotation rooms At the entry way into your VBS or at any promotional display area, add a road on the floor or on the wall for a fun look. Place a road on the floor and add black and white checkered table rolls to the walls for a double dose of decorating fun. Add inflatable tires and colorful traffic cones for additional color and realism. Bible Memory Poster Set (K-8017) Use these great posters of the custom cars and the Custom GARAGE crew at your Bible Memory site. Each poster features the daily Bible Memory verse. Purchase additional posters for decorating the hallways, registration area, and the Service Center (platform area) for the Opening/Closing. A complete mini-set of these

4 posters is included in the Elementary Student Activities book so get one book for each VBS participant and they can take a poster home each session. Consider the Bible Memory Poster Set (K-8017) for decorating the stage, use in each site rotation area, and along the hallways of the church. There is also an Early Childhood Sid and Simon Kiddie Car Garage poster in each set. Custom GARAGE Doorway Decorations Wrap every door with Black and White checkered table rolls. Print out large Custom GARAGE logo s from the Multimedia Resource CD (K-8024) and place a logo on each door. Purchase or make traffic, street, or road signs as additional decorations. Indoor/Outdoor Banners (K-8021) Use to announce VBS ahead of time, place on the stage as a Welcome Banner to Custom GARAGE. These banners also make great signs to designate each of your site rotation areas and registration. All you need is stick on letters from any discount store. Additional Custom GARAGE Decorating Ideas Contact local auto parts stores and ask for posters or others displays you might use as decorations throughout your church. Advertise a Custom GARAGE Car Show some time during the week at your church. Decorate outside with Custom GARAGE outdoor Decorating and Promo Banners (K-8021) and balloons (K-8015). Provide a car show and outdoor barbeque for your neighboring community. Invite car enthusiasts to bring their cars for show. Invite local car related businesses to provide prizes like an oil change, etc. Custom GARAGE! Be Sure to Wear the Gear Dress everyone from the VBS Director to the youngest of kids in Custom GARAGE gear. Use the high rez Custom GARAGE logo from the Multimedia Resource CD to print Custom GARAGE T-shirts. Give everyone a Custom GARAGE Shop Rag (K-8032) available in five colors and imprinted with the Custom GARAGE logo. Give everyone the Tell Light Toy Pack (K-8005) with a Custom GARAGE metal license plate, flashlight (batteries included) and five custom car lenses imprinted with the daily Bible verse reference. Give each kid a Custom GARAGE metal license plate from the Tell Light Toy Pack (K-8005) at the mechanics swearing in ceremony on Day 1 and throughout the week. Wearing the gear will help everyone feel a part of the Custom GARAGE crew.
