January Home and Visiting Teaching Gifts

VISITING TEACHING GIFT: 

This month's gift is simple, clean, & we are loving the color combination of navy, turquoise, buttercup yellow, and gray. 




We've created a notebook with the cover saying: "Note to Self: Obedience Brings Blessings" 



It includes the notepad, a pen, and the full message from the Ensign. We hope your sisters will like to take notes throughout the year during lessons, sacrament meetings, or personal scripture study and enjoy the notepad!



HOME TEACHING GIFT:

A bag of gum and the message itself is included in this month's home teaching gift. Our tag says, '"CHEWS" to follow the Prophet' 



We hope the families you visit will enjoy the message along with the gum!

Ring in the New Year!

New Years Eve is so much fun! We love the idea - with kids or adults - to have a fun countdown surprise each hour leading up to the big midnight hour!

balloon countdown

countdown bags

Put your notes in balloons and pop them to find what is inside - or have cute goodie bags filled with a fun activity or treat!

You can do whatever suits your family, but we like to start at about 5 and have the first activity be "Make/eat dinner" (chinese food, pizza, etc). Have the whole family help and enjoy a yummy dinner. Then make a few more to open every hour or so. We like to have one go for about 2 hours so we can watch a movie.

  • Put a game inside the goodie bag (UNO, Phase 10, etc) and play that until the next hour. 
  • Make your own confetti! Scrap paper, newspaper, old phone books, etc. Get hole punches and scissors and go to town! See how much you can make in an hour!
  • Ingredients to make cookies or a treat
  • A movie and popcorn
  • Go outside and have a snowball fight!
  • Have a dance party - jump on the beds/couches
  • Make a craft (see here for a cute noisemaker to make)
  • Etc!
Remember, we are goodie bag central! Come on in to get all your bags/tags made up AND/or get your balloons for the party. 

Happy New Year!
