The music rotation is an integral part of any Vacation Bible School (VBS) program, bringing energy, joy, and an opportunity for children to engage with worship.

To maximize the impact of your VBS music rotation, consider implementing these three easy suggestions: plan, prepare, and involve others.


  • Evaluate your church’s VBS structure and determine the appropriate songs for your music rotation.

  • Planning ahead ensures a well-structured and purposeful music rotation.


  • Start familiarizing yourself with the VBS music as early as possible.
  • Listen to the songs on the CD or watch the DVD during your daily activities.
