This year, Village Kids Summer Fun is going to look a bit different. Village Kids decided to create a bunch of smaller resources for everyone. Our ultimate goal is to empower you as parents and significant adults to spend intentional time with your kids this summer, talk about Jesus, and have fun in the process. Listed below are different resources and activities that can help you accomplish that goal. You do not need to do them all, but we encourage you to try some.
We hope you will have a fantastic summer and know that we are praying for you.
This summer, Village Kids Online (VKO) is going in a few new directions. Kids in Grade 4-5 (The Hangout) will be continuing their series called “Press Play.” However, the Preschool and Kindergarten to Grade 3 kids will be talking about the Fruit of The Spirit. For that series, each week, you can check back here to get a review of VKO and also some tips on how to keep the conversation going throughout the week. You can also find the same resources with each VKO video here.
Week # 1 – Love (July 4)
Week #2 – Joy (July 11)
Week #3 – Peace (July 18)
Week #4 – Patience (July 24)
Family Bucket List
Summer is made for fun in the sun and special time spent with family and friends. We’d like to introduce the Village Summer Family Bucket List! An exciting list of activities to help you create wonderful memories with your family. This bucket list is for all families, whether you have kids or not! There is no age restriction on fun. We want everyone to join in and invite others to as well.
We want to see you all the awesome creative things you come up with! As you tick items off the list, post them with #thisisvillagesummer. We can’t wait to see your creative take on the Village Summer Family Bucket List.
Family Travel Kits
This summer, we know that families like yours will plan on being in the car with kids at some point in time. That is why we created the Family Travel Kit to accompany you on your road trips. Inside each Family Travel Kit, you will find a bunch of resources along with a few surprises. There is also room for you to add your stuff into these Travel Kits to make them your own. You can get a travel kit from your local Village Site, or you can download this resource pack and create your very own Family Travel Kit.
We have put together many playlists for you and your family to enjoy as you go on your adventures. Play these tunes while hanging out as a family or when taking a break from all the summer craziness.
July Playlists: Coming Soon
August Playlist: Coming Soon
Summer Reading Plan
This summer, Village Kids wants to encourage kids and families to dive into the Bible to learn more about Jesus and how he impacts our lives. So we have created two reading plans based on the kids who attend Village Kids.
At the end of the summer, come back here to fill out the form (linked below), and let us know that you took part in the VK Summer Reading Plan. We will send your kids a “Congratulations pack,” and your family will be entered into a draw for a Family Night Out and Family Photoshoot from Village Church. We will draw one grand prize winner from each of the Village Church Sites (including online).
