One of the main goals of the VBS is the memorization of Daniel 2:20-22. This passage will be worked on as a whole during the entire week of the VBS in a variety of fun ways. The detailed description of the method will show you how this will be accomplished.
Day One: He gives Gives Wisdom to the wise and Knowledge to the discerning. - Wisdom comes from Him.
Day Two: He changes Times and Seasons - He brings changes and opportunities in my life to help me grow in Him.
Day Three: He Sets up kings and deposes them. - God is in control of everything in my life.
Day Four: Four He Knows what lies in Darkness and Light dwells with Him. - He knows what is in my heart.
Day Five: He reveals deep and hidden things. - I need His guidance.
Decoration Hints: You may want to decorate like the Babylonian palace with pillars at doorways and paper "lions" or "Babylonian murals" on the walls, etc to give the children a sense of being there with Daniel and his friends.
