If you are doing a Treasured theme, use an explorer style hat for this prayer activity. But you can use whatever hat fits your theme. Think of a cowboy hat, a train conductor hat, a construction helmet, a baseball cap, etc.
In this activity, youth make a tiny raft. This would go well with a Treasured VBS theme. It also is good for any lesson involving boats, such as Jesus walking on the water or St. Paul being shipwrecked.
Buried Treasure is a fun game for all ages. It works well for Vacation Bible School or youth ministry. Everyone enjoys playing in a sandbox! For older players, use smaller treasures to make them more difficult to find.
