Closing gadgets

Just wanted to see how everyone's been doing with the no hum drum, funnel slingshot, the leaf-blower sock shooter, the odiferous ooze, and the bucket air blast thingie, both during your preparation and more importantly, during VBS. Are they all worth the time and effort involved to produce them,...and the cost? Did they work well, give a memorable WOW moment, and help get the point across? 

If you incorporate your preschoolers into your closing instead of having a separate preschool closing, are the preschoolers okay with everything? 

Thanks!

We just did our VBS last week. Kids absolutely LOVED these WOW Closings. For the No Hum Drum, we used 10-foot length of  4" PVC Sewer Pipe (this is lighter and less expensive) and 4-inch wide curved PVC connectors that were light weight too. The whole thing was less that $20! Here are some pictures. We left the "bell curved end" of the tube on.

Preschoolers are tired by the end of the 3 hours and I really like the preschool Closing Circle. It's just right for these kiddos. Not making another transition to the Finale after rotations to Crafts & Play, KidVid, Games and Snack, worked REALLY well for our 105 preschoolers! We also encourage our parents to come pick up their preschoolers BEFORE they get their elementary kids.
