God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures...including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd—nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus. Each day, leaders will reinforce one simple Bible truth through song, skits, hands on experiments and games. Today's kids are wired to learn by doing – and that's why they will love Weird Animals VBS.
