Celebrate Family Winners!

Thank you to all who left comments about what you & your family does to celebrate!  We randomly chose two winners (thanks to D & L) and they are...

Melissa -
"We celebrate all summer long by having homemade ice cream every Sunday night! It is the yummiest tradition ever. This year we have even had homemade ice cream sandwiches from scratch! The ice cream is also a staple at any other family celebration we have! You can't have a party without it!"

Shauna-
"We love to eat also! Love to play Corn holes and just chat to catch up on everyone and what's going on."
Contact us via email to get your $25 gift card to use at our store!  And Shauna, you might have to let us in on how to play Corn holes!!  We've never heard of that before... :) 

Make sure to tune in on August 3rd to watch the segment on Studio 5 (KSL Channel 5) at 11:00 to see how we put all your ideas together about Celebrating Family!

July Visiting Teaching Gift

Make your visiting teaching this month a BLAST with our dynamite message!  A festive Americana cardstock is rolled with the message tucked inside, as well as some (super soft & yummy) flag tootsie rolls.  We've finished it off  wrapped in clear cellophane, added some polka dot ribbon, and tied on a tag that reads, "Celebrate the Great Blessings of the Temple."





And while we're at it... check out our July Home Teaching Gift as well...
A frame-able subway art with words and powerful phrases from President Uchdorf's message, as well as the message itself, and enough licorice for the whole family!  Complete the gift yourself with a personal message on the tag provided.  We are sure it will be a hit! 



Buy these gifts online or in our store in Lehi.

Have a Happy 4th of July!

Summer Fun Game Ideas

Here are a few ideas we've posted before, but thought you could use them with the 4th of July coming up!  

1.  SPONGE TAG:  Get a big bucket of water, 2-3 sponges (the bigger the better), and lots of kids...hand over a sponge or two to a couple of the older kids to start out - and watch the kids run around!  Works better with multiple sponges so everyone gets wet and has a chance to be "it."

2. MARBLE GRAB:  Fill a kiddy pool with water and dump marbles in the bottom.  Each player stands in the pool and has to pick up marbles with his or her toes.  The person who picks up the most is the winner!

3.  BOTTOM-END-BLOW-OUT:  Tape a thumb tack to each players nose.  Then tape a balloon to each players bottom end.  The object of the game is to see who can pop the most balloons without letting their own balloon be popped!  This one is sure to be full of laughs!
4.  WET 'N WILD LIMBO:  Play limbo replacing a regular limbo stick with a water hose.

5.  BODY PAINT:  Make a variety of instant pudding the night before so that it can set.  Give each child (or adult) a paintbrush (fingers work as well) and let them paint designs on each other.  Give a prize to the most creative, messiest, best design, etc....

6.  MUSICAL TOWELS:  Exact same as musical chairs, but with towels outside. You don't even have to have the towels in a circle; just randomly place them in the yard!  That way guests are jumping and dashing around trying to land on a towel!


7.  PIN-AQUA:  Hang a kitchen garbage sack from a tree, basketball hoop, etc... fill about 1/3 full of water... and let the kids take swings!  Instead of candy, they will enjoy getting cooled off on a hot summer day.  (We tried this the other day in our neighborhood, and it was a HIT!)

What are some of the games YOU play when you get together with friends or family?  Leave a comment and share... please??!!  
Happy 4th of July weekend!
