Last year we posted a free VBS curriculum written by Tara Tegard called “Bible Boot Camp VBS.” It is still available for download and hundreds of churches have used it in their ministry.
Tara has written a second Vacation Bible School curriculum and wants to share it with readers on our website. It is titled “BigHeart Farms” and covers Galatians 5:16-26, the Fruit of the Spirit.
There are two files to download, for each you can choose a PDF or DOC format that can be edited with Microsoft Word.
- BigHeart Farms Curriculum PDF (print friendly) or editable doc file
- Activity Templates PDF (print friendly)
- See more craft & decoration ideas on Pinterest
- Browse all our Fruit of the Spirit resources & ideas
She writes, “I give it freely for anyone to use in any ministry setting, be it through a church, missions trip, or home use. However this can be used to share the Gospel, I give permission for it to be done.”
Music Suggestions: Here are some music resources that we’ve hear people using with these lessons.
- Fruit of the Spirit music video (YouTube)
- “We Got the Fruit” from Go Fish (YouTube)
- To Be Like Jesus (purchase from Sovereign Grace Music)
Our website has many free resources to help you plan Vacation Bible School. Here are a few that would be most relevant to this free VBS.

Thank you. We used your curriculum for VBS this year. We tweaked it to fit our small work force and had a very successful VBS. Thank you for making it available.
Love your vbs material. We used the Armor of God this year and it was great. Did a little tweaking and adding. Working on maybe doing Fruits of the Spirit. Wondering if you have a Moto in mind for it. Thanks and God Bless.
we have a Saturday Outreach Feeding program in our church. Before feeding the neighborhood kids, We teach them God’s Word. I have run out of ideas and was thinking of either doing armor of God or doing this. This is a great help. Thank you for this! You are a great help to busy, weekend, ministry workers. May God continue to endow you with wisdom and creativity in reaching out to the whole world. God bless!
Thank you for your amazing talent. I used it for my kids and their friends during Covid shutdown, and now we are using it for our small church. Prayers appreciated. 🙂
