Christmas in Candy Land Set Design


This week I wanted to do a throwback post on last December's Christmas set design. We had originally just planned to make it a theme day called Christmas in Candy Land, but the room ended up looking so awesome and elaborate that we decided to keep it up as our set all month long. I will admit that I was absolutely in love with this theme idea from the beginning because my Christmas home decor is mainly candy and cookie-themed. The kids and volunteers loved this theme. They enjoyed walking along the game board path and looking at all the fun details. This set [...]

Space Set Design


Full Stage This set design was inspired by the 252 Basics theme of the month: All Hands on Deck (Service). It was easier than usual to make the theme for this month clear. The moment the kids walked into our environment they knew exactly what our theme was. We managed to stay within our $100 budget this month by purchasing a few key items, and making the rest of the decorations out of materials and decorations we already had on hand. Since we started doing a full live band during worship these last few months, we have to keep more of the stage clear [...]
