I am in charge of snacks for our church's "Kids Town Camp" (aka. VBS) this year, and I'm getting stumped on ideas. Just wondering if any of my faithful blog readers out there have any creative ideas for "superhero" themed snacks. We are studying Biblical superheros, and the main characters are Samson, King Hezekiah, Isaiah, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and Jesus. We're also inlcuding the armor of God as part of the study, so we can utilize the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and sword of the spirit. I thought maybe for the shield of faith day I'd have sugar cookies that the kids could decorate with frosting and sprinkles and those would look like shields. I had also thought about one of the days (maybe the last day?) having gingerbread men cookies and coming up with little things for each of the pieces of armor (licorice for the sword, etc). Let me know if you all have any brilliant ideas! Your help is much appreciated :)

Hey there! I thought maybe you could use the pull-apart string- like twizzlers for Samsons long hair. :-) And then for 'strength' you could make dumb-bell weights using pretzles with marshmellows on each end? Hope it goes well!

How about Gatorade and some sort of "Power (Granola?) Bar." In keeping with the theme, you could have the kids make a superhero sandwich. Basically, it would be bread layers of meat, cheese, tomato, and lettuce. Just some thoughts!
