What should these girls do with the bazillion handouts that I give them?  They are getting monthly value goal cards, monthly lesson them cards, reminder treats with tags on them, mutual value experience cards...did I forget any? 

Here is what they should do with them...staple them into their Personal Progress journals!  I love that I can write my journal entry and have the card right there so when I go back and read it I know what the value experience was!  And now there is a place for all of the goal cards, and tags from the handouts too! 

All it took was 4 different types of ribbon and a stapler.  I stapled all of the cards in on the same page as the correlating journal entry.  If there were two on the same page I overlapped them and only stapled one side so they could be lifted up.  Then I tied ribbons through the holes that were already on the cards (to hang on the flower mirror hanger) and stapled some ribbon on as tabs to lift them up.  They could even write their journal entry on the back of the card and staple it into the journal so it can be flipped over.  For the cover I used double sided tape and taped some scrapbook paper over it front to back and added a sticker of the temple.  Then I tied it with a loose piece of twine.  What a great keepsake!

Orange you glad it's summer?

I made these for the boys' teachers.  They are orange rolls with THIS tag!  Just thought I'd share.  You could use the tag with something much more simple than orange rolls - orange slice candies, orange soda, or anything orange!

“Knock Knock.”
 “Who’s There?”
“Orange Who?”

Orange You Glad It’s Summer?!

We are too!

summer personal progress handout.

I made these and am going to give these to the girls the Sunday after school gets out to encourage them to work on their Personal Progress during the summer.  If they complete two values (all six experiences and project for each) OR 20 hours of service and half of the Book of Mormon for their Honor Bee I will have a breakfast or lunch for them at my house. This idea came from 

Your summer will ROCK
if you POP open your
Personal Progress book and
work on it non-stop!

“Personal Progress provides a wonderful way for you to nourish your testimony step by step. Value experiences and projects are small steps that will nourish your testimony of Jesus Christ as you learn His teachings and regularly apply them in your life. This constant nourishment will keep you safely on the path.”    - Mary N. Cook

Print the handouts on card stock HERE, cut them out, and then staple to another color of cardstock on sides and bottom.  Trim with pinking sheers and staple some rik rak or ribbon to the side to spunk it up. Put your pop rocks inside and you have a super cute reminder!  I found the Pop Rocks at Dollar Tree - One three pack is $1.  Have fun rocking out on this one!
