Birthday Cake

You know those days when you should be getting started on laundry or dishes or cleaning up your craft room, but you just don't want to, so you spend time on Pinterest and you're stuck!!! Well that's me!! They should seriously start a Pinterest's Anonymous!! Here's a little something I found today and I wanted to share, it would make a perfect little gift idea for practically anyone. You could do it for your Visiting Teaching sisters, the young women, or even activity days and I'm sure boys would a love it too without the girlie papers :)  Just fill it up with a bunch of goodies and there you have it!!
Go HERE for the free pattern and from another blog for the easiest instructions: just print the largest size cake slice (bottom slice) onto the back of your pattern paper, and then cut and score and fill.


Endless possibilities with this!!
Enjoy!

Relief Society Welcome Packet

I made one of these about a year ago and I have no idea what happened to it. So I decided to whip up another one, because it's just so helpful when you have something to give to a new member of the ward so they don't feel so out of place. There's 4 pages in all sized at 5x7.
** If you can think of anything that you would like me to add to these, please don't hesitate to ask and I'll get it in there,  it'll be easy peasy to add more stuff**

Service is Sweet (Chutes and Ladders)

After working on the lesson for Primary 7, I thought a little game would be fun. So I whipped one up. I think that it could also be used for a FHE lesson or something. (Please don't forget that it was meant as a portion of a Primary lesson)

Use a die to see where you land.
You could also make up more "service" ideas to pose to the kids if you have more than a few and you play it more than once.
There's aren't markers for this, but you could use lots of different things.
 - different colored buttons
 - colors little pinto beans or something
 - use markers from a different game (Trouble, Monopoly, etc)

Need a refresher on how to play "Chutes and Ladders"? Go HERE for instructions.

Enjoy!

LDS Stick Puzzles

Hi guys, I'm busy with Mod Podge and my Photoshop, making up some new stuff for our church bag and I wanted to share. So without further ado. I ran across a dinosaur stick puzzle and I thought how fun that would be but for our church bag (always looking for goodies for that bag) and so I whipped up some following her directions. So go over there and follow the directions and take your pick of which of these downloads you want :) (I'm thinking of doing more, please comment if you're interested in more)
Sorry you don't get any pictures of mine, not a project photo taker.
But coming from the trenches, here's some tips to add:
~ only do one coat of mod podge at a time so the colors don't smear
~ for these ones they are sized at 3.5x 5.5 so you'll need 15 sticks
~ wait about an hour or so before you cut so you don't cut the paper too
~ when you're ready to cut, turn them to the popsicle stick side so you know where you're cutting

Here's the dinosaur one. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!! Don't forget to go to her blog for the instructions :)


Here's the goods!!
Oh also on these you'll notice little gray lines on each (these are the lines to cut along to make them the right size :)







**Please remember that each download, I've created. I've put thought and time into each, please don't take them and claim as your own. It's just not nice. Thanks!!!**

July Visiting Teaching Message

Love the message for July (goes right along with the Primary's theme). The first thing that I saw was Come to the Temple and Claim your blessings. What a powerful statement!! Which is why I included it on handout.

Want to read the message a little early?

Primary 3, Lesson 24

LDS.org Primary 3, Lesson 24: The Lord helps Missionaries

7/1/17- The below links no longer work and I do not have these files anymore due to a hard drive crash. I have revamped them and have them available for download HERE.





DOWNLOAD 4X6 HERE
OR A SHEET OF 4

And as the lesson asks the kids for "what's missing", here's some missionary tags. You can choose either white background or black.
DOWNLOAD BLACK 3X2 HERE 
OR A SHEET OF 8

DOWNLOAD WHITE 3X2 HERE
OR A SHEET OF 8

And the lesson also gives a suggestion of having the kids write to a missionary from your ward. (If you don't have any call your mission office and they can give you name of someone who doesn't get a lot of mail)
I thought the sheet of 4s may come in handy if you just wanted to hand each kid one and have them write or draw their own letter and send them all together.
So with that, here's a letter for either an Elder or a Sister.

Singing time: Sing like....

This one is going to be an ongoing project, but here's the first 6. Now basically the idea is to put these onto popsicle sticks, pull them out of a hat, etc for kids to sing in fun ways so it never gets boring. I do have a LONG list of fun ideas and I'll be making up cards for them in time, so if you have a fun way to sing, shoot me an email or comment below and I'll add them to the list :)
They are all the same size about 4.5 in (I made them on a transparent 5 in square and  they are all round) Have fun!! I'd love your feedback!!
