Event Overview

Try something new this fall...and give your kids much more than a sugar rush!

At Maker Fest, families tinker, invent, doodle, and create together! At each idea-sparking station, they'll have a blast as they learn how their creative Master Maker made them for a unique purpose.

Kids need encouraging messages of truth and love to shape their identity... and Maker Fest helps them discover they're God's masterpiece!

And... as a bonus, Maker Fest is a great follow-up to Maker Fun Factory VBS - you can even use the same decor! If you didn't do Maker Fun Factory VBS, no worries - it works well for any church's fall activities.

Here families are greeted and each child receives a Creator's Crate - a nifty box to keep his or her goodies and projects in throughout the event and to take home.

Kids weave a basket using a pre-cut frame and fabric, ribbon or yarn. They'll also learn about Tinker the tiny Harvest Mouse and how God created her to weave a nest from grass. Kids will get a Tinker Buddy Tag here.

Families have their pictures taken with a variety of fun items—and then you'll follow up after the event by mailing the photo and an invitation to return to your church.

Kids make colorful launchers, then launch pom-poms or cotton balls at fun targets. So much fun!

Small windup motors are the starting point for toys kids get to make themselves. Kids can use templates that are provided or invent their own creation.

Kids invent a story in a "Make Your Own Adventure" book. They get to write the story, draw the characters, and learn more about how Jesus can be their forever friend!

The Bible story of Creation happens here - along with lots of fun singing and making music. Music videos will play while kids do the motions or play along with instruments they've made—and your event Storyteller will engage everyone in the Bible story.

Kids will color or glue tactile items to three giant posters. It's one big art project that everyone contributes to—and it sure looks cool when it's done!

Kids will select a few food items that can be used to create something, and when they're done inventing they can eat their project. Yum!

Mini Makers will have special projects targeted at their skill level in a preschool-friendly area.
