General Conference Ideas...

Image
This is a re-post from March, with updated packet information.
We've had a lot of you ask if we have any ideas to keep your kids interested {busy} during General Conference this weekend... so we've compiled a few ideas from around the blog world for you.  
#1 - CONFERENCE TREAT BUCKETS - by Brown Paper Packages


Basically the idea is to get some buckets, label them with words you want your kids to listen for, and let them pick a treat when they hear that word spoken in one of the talks!  Awesome, huh?
Don't have time or want to spend money on buckets and vinyl?   Use mason jars and print out words from your computer. (be cute & colorful to see the candies) Have your kids help you color your labels and tape them on! Also, my little ones can't read yet - so I will probably find pictures of the temple, the scriptures, etc. for our treat buckets!  (If time permits, I will post the pictures I find so you can use them too!)
#2 - SET UP YOUR TENTS!  

Just as the people gathered to …

Kid Friendly Jack-O-Lantern Cookies

Image
This is the CUTEST idea EVER!  I found it over at "Bee in our Bonnet" and couldn't resist sharing with you.  I am definitely going to add this to my "to-do-this-October" list.

Check out the full instructions here.

So the basic steps are:
1.  Make sugar cookie dough
2.  Cut out dough into shapes of eyes, nose, mouth, etc - the way you would a real pumpkin!
3.  Bake and and let cool.
4.  Decorate with frosting and let dry.
5.  Grab some orange dessert plates (which will be your "pumpkin") and let the kids arrange and re-arrange their jack-o-lantern faces!




GENIUS!  I also LOVE the idea of putting all the decorated pieces into a jar to "gift" to friends or neighbors. Check out their full post for details on giving this darling idea away!

September Visiting Teaching Gift

Image
I love-love-LOVE how these visiting teaching gifts turned out!
The vintage "back to school" theme notebook includes 5 total pages: (pg 1) the full message from the Ensign (pg 2, 3, & 4) great quotes from the message that could be put in your scriptures or hung on a refrigerator (pg 5) a daily/weekly "to-do" checklist of gospel principles
It is all put together with an oversized paper-clip (complete with blue polka dot ribbon), a rubber band, and some old fashioned candy sticks.
The tag clipped to the outside says,  "{Stick} 2 your spiritual studies + {Stick} 2 gospel principles = 4 a strong family!" (The title of the message is "Strengthening Families by Increasing Spirituality")

August Visiting Teaching Gift

Image
The August VT message is entitled, "A Society of Holy Women."   The message is printed on a beautiful linen cardstock with a pearl finish... the full message on one side, with one of our favorite quotes from the message on the other.  The quote reads, "By accepting the gift of activity in Relief Society, we become part of what Joseph Smith described as a society 'separate from all the evils of the world... Choice, Virtuous, & Holy.'"  The ornate card is tied with a chocolate brown raffia onto a delicious snickerdoodle cookie (Granny B's), with a "to/from" card tucked in so you can personalize your gift.  The card  would be perfect to hang on one's refrigerator, mirror, or even backed on cardstock and framed.  Enjoy!



The card is really beautiful in person... you won't be disappointed!! Purchase these on our online shop or in our store in Lehi.
