“EXTRAORDINARY! Churches won’t have difficulty getting volunteers. They’ll have people on waiting lists! I found myself wishing I had all the materials in front of me, so I could be the kid. Josh has created “great chemistry” in this VBS with just the right amount of video content, student hands-on discovery, and activities that build relationships with leaders … and it’s all around the Word of God.”
The detailed leader manuals are wonderful and the videos are done with such excellence. And, I love the way Josh break up the videos each step, so the kids can complete their instruction. I’m sure that will bring a great deal of order to what can be chaos when you start playing with science. I was thrilled to see Josh bring this amazing science VBS theme to life.
The step-by-step videos will keep kids on the edge of their seats as they anticipate the next step of their experiment.

I love it when we can take what kids are naturally curious about and create moments when they become just as curious about what the Bible says.
I love what Josh put together. You’d think a big production company and full-blown writing team had done this. Josh thought of everything! Congratulations on creating a phenomenal program that is going to help lead kids into a lifelong journey with Jesus.”

“I’ve reviewed countless quality curriculums and VBS programs over the years, but have never seen one that offers all that Kidmin Science VBS provides. You will simply be blown away, but more importantly, your kids will LOVE learning about God through the amazing world of science and chemistry”

The Science Projects are awesome. Who doesn't love a fun, science experiment? In Science VBS, kids will get to participate in science projects,every day of the week! Some of these projects include building rockets, making slime, playing with catapults, and more! Plus, the curriculum includes preschool options for all projects.
It's digital. Because this VBS is entirely digital, you can have an unlimited number of leader guides, song track files, etc. Have more than 1 classroom per grade? No problem! Simply print more leader guides. With other curricula, you often have additional costs to purchase hard-copy material for all of your classes and teachers.
One purchase and you get all VBS material for all ages.

“I have been involved with VBS at the leadership level for 20 years. I have used many different curriculums. BASIC Elements stands out! From the VBS directors guide to the science devotionals, the organization is excellent. The program is flexible & provides great ideas that will be readily adaptable to a variety of different VBS models. BASIC is uncomplicated and at the same time is solid quality. As a children's ministry veteran and professional, I give BASIC Elements VBS five stars, two thumbs-up, a high five, applause, cheers, and a standing ovation. I was impressed. It's everything I want in a VBS program and more.”
I have been involved with VBS at the leadership level at least 20 or more times. I have used many different curriculums. BASIC Elements stands out! From the VBS directors guide to the science devotionals, the organization is excellent. The program is flexible & provides great ideas that will be readily adaptable to a variety of different VBS models. BASIC is uncomplicated and at the same time is solid quality. Josh Denhart has done an outstanding job of making the vision & purpose of VBS clear & at the same time he covers every important detail. The curriculum clearly tells the "how to" of each part of the VBS program & throughout the entire curriculum, the VBS leaders will be encouraged by the continued reminders of purpose.
BASIC Elements is quality. The ability to see everything online in files that are easy to navigate is a great help. Everything, and I mean everything is done well. The videos are delightful to watch - and everyone from children to adult will find them captivating.
BASIC Elements is loaded with Scripture and has excellent Bible teaching and application. Instead of the same stories being done in the same way time after time, BASIC Elements will let the kids experience God's Word as they 'do' the science devotions at VBS. They will remember what they are taught because they will experience the lesson through the really cool science experiments. A great strength the small group leaders will find helpful is the dialogue. The curriculum gives the leaders just enough to say but not too much. Its obvious that great conversations will take place with the kids - and that component of relationship building is so key to successfully sharing Jesus' love with them.
When VBS ends every summer - Children's ministry leaders often struggle with follow up and knowing we fall short in being able to provide ongoing encouragement and influence in the kids' lives. One of my very favorite things about Science VBS is the “Science Devotions @ Home” program. What a blessing!! Being able to offer quality, interesting, and really well done devotions for the families to do after VBS is greatly needed. How exciting that it's a reality now!
As a children's ministry veteran and professional, I give BASIC Elements VBS five stars, two thumbs-up, a high five, applause, cheers, and a standing ovation. I was impressed. It's everything I want in a VBS program and more. I am thankful this ministry exists & am pleased to know so many kids around the country will be experiencing and learning from Science VBS this summer."

“Josh has taken a fresh approach that I totally am excited about! When I consult with churches I remind them to “think blue.” This means to target boys in 3rd-5th grade, if you do this you will reach boys and girls of all ages. Josh totally gets this! His kit is filled with lots of ideas, projects and science experiments that any boy or girl will love.”
The best part of all of this “science” stuff is that you don’t have to have a PhD. to understand it. He provides lots of explanations and ideas of how you can make this happen.
The Basic Elements kit focuses on the BASIC’s of the Faith Believe, Ask, Serve, Impact, Celebrate! Each day’s lesson plans present a solid gospel message which is different from most kits where the gospel is really only given on Thursday. If you’re like me, (yes, I’m old school) I believe you should present the gospel each day and allow God to decide when a child takes that step of faith.
If you’re not a VBS craft fan like me, you’ll be happy to know there are NO CRAFTS!! (craft haters unite, LOL!) Josh has pulled together some awesome ideas that will have even the men in the church volunteering to work in the science projects area. The kids in this rotation will get to build a rocket that they actually get to launch! Some really cool and totally safe, chemical reactions, along with a catapult! Trust me the kids will love this and so will the volunteers! Josh even has created videos that will step by step teach how to do each project so that those who are leading don’t have to worry about how to explain the projects.
Preschoolers with love this too, Josh did a great job setting up the preschool ministry to have an amazing time too! Their activities and lessons are geared just of them and they don’t miss out on any of the cool factors.
Each element of the BASICS VBS kit is well thought out and has a reason for being a part of the kit. The music is fun, and totally scripture based, so if you want kids to learn God’s word, it will be all over the music!
I can highly recommend the kit to you because I believe it has everything you would need to have a gospel filled outreach that kids will remember for a long time. Josh provides you with all the essential elements and gives you all the access you need to conduct a fantastic outreach. With his instructional videos, lesson plans, lists of where to find all the necessary items you would need, it is a solid program and my choice for Vacation Bible School this summer at my church.”

“Science VBS has a strong evangelistic emphasis and solid Bible teaching. I LOVE the way so much intentional learning can take place in the small group Science Devotions stations - children will participate in two devotions each day and will be opening their Bibles, reading Scripture, talking about what it says and doing science projects to help them understand and remember what they are learning - EXCELLENT!”
Science VBS has a strong evangelistic emphasis and solid Bible teaching. This curriculum provides LOTS of information about how to prepare for each science project, where to find supplies and how to lead children through each project
How about this - Reproducible Music! Make copies and give to volunteers, families, children - everyone! All part of the one-time cost!
From a decoration standpoint, Science VBS has excellent resources to help churches turn their building and grounds into a science lab
I really appreciate that this curriculum available as a download and you are welcome to print as many of the resources as you need for use in your ministry.
As you might guess from the name, this VBS engages children with science projects - lots of them; which means, children are going to pay attention and will learn from the things they participate in throughout each morning.
I found Science VBS to be an excellent resource; I really LOVE all the science experiments which children are able to not just watch, but also actually have a part in performing themselves! If you do not choose Science VBS for your Vacation Bible School, definitely think about where you might use it in your ministry. Because there are so many activities and science projects in each lesson, it would be easy to stretch the five lessons into ten and use it over your summer on Sunday mornings! Just imagine what an exciting summer you would have with science projects and real Bible learning each Sunday in your church!”
