Sacrament Cards - Easter Gift Idea

Sacrament Cards

Here is a Free Easter Gift Idea! 
Increase reverence on your church bench with this gift. 

Before the Sacrament is passed allow your children to choose one card to study.  Allow them to pick a new card every week.  Some cards are filled with multiple weeks of study material.  Each card will teach your child about the sacrament and help strengthen their testimony of this sacred ordinance.

INSTRUCTIONS- Download the file, print it off on heavy card-stock and/or laminate the pages, cut them out, connect the cards with a clip or place in an envelope, and toss it in your children's Easter baskets :).  If you have more than one child, you could either print off a copy for each child or split the cards into multiple books.

Please share this with others!  I felt impressed to create it a few years ago and have finally checked it off my list :).  Hopefully it will help at least one person/child's testimony of the Sacrament improve!

Snowflake Quilt

Snowflake Quilt
For those with lingering snow flurries here is something to keep you cozy :).

My mother saw some cute wrapping paper and decided the girls in our family needed to made a quilt that resembled it.  We all used our creative juices to make it our own.  Here is mine :)!  It only took me 10 years??

It is hard to see the detail work from a distance.  I hand stitched snow flurries around the quilt.  Each snowflake is blanket stitched onto the quilt.

Wishing you all a warm spring :).

Pudding Turkey Cups

I had to make 48 individually wrapped treats for my kids fall festival and decided to create these feathery friends.  I actually had my kids make them!  It took about 2 hours with 4 semi effective little helpers :).

I purchased 4-12 pack pudding boxes at my local grocery store for under $12 total.  I only used one piece of construction paper per colored body part (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange, and 1 brown).  It did require 92 googly eyes and some sturdy glue/tape.  If you are cheap on the adhesive your turkeys will loose their body parts which will frustrate you!  I had to re-adhere a few :).   

Helpful Hint- Stapling the three feathers together before adhering them will make them easier to work with.

This is a fun holiday craft for ages 3 and up.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Scrapbook Page Idea #4

Page Idea #4- from my Texan Owl Family Scrapbook

Have you been wondering where all the owls are hiding?  Here are some :). 

These owls were rubber stamped onto white paper.  The white rectangles were great for placing wallet sized photos.
