DIY Cereal Box Bible Tote for Church

IMG_3583

Micah just went into primary as a “Sunbeam” this month and on the same day Quentin went into nursery at church! It was a good transition because I was afraid to let Quentin in nursery when there were like eight boys that were a lot older than him. Here is a picture of their first day:

All the older boys went into primary and now our primary is huge! (Well only compared to the other wards in our stake… it’s actually only like 35 kids but our room is small and it feels like a lot of kids.)

The new kids in primary got a Book of Mormon to take to church every week. I decided to make Micah a scripture tote. I remember seeing missionaries make these scripture covers out of cereal boxes for their Bible and Books of Mormon.

It was super easy. I just cut off the top of a cereal box and taped it up all around to laminate it. Then I punched two holes and tied a ribbon so it would be easier for him to carry. Micah keeps all his church stuff in it along with his new Book of Mormon.

I got this Elmo Cereal at the store because Micah insisted that it was the one he wanted. The cereal really really gross but it made a cute box! (It was definitely good marketing on their part…. the cereal is way plain… it’s like dry cardboard.) The scripture tote works pretty good! I don’t know how long it will last though. :)

Dallin is still in the bishopric and I’m still a primary chorister. We’re having fun! Here are two cute pictures of Micah and his friends at church.

Super Easy Kid-Friendly Macaroni

Kid Friendly Mac

I feel a little silly posting this. I’ve been going through my 2014 pictures and I took this picture 1 year ago. My little boys eat this at least once a week… cause it’s super easy for me. Lately, I’ve been minimizing the time I spend cooking so I can maximize the time I get to do my hobbies and teach my boys new things.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cook and drain macaroni according to package then put macaroni back into pot. Turn heat down to medium-low
  2. Put the butter on top of the macaroni in the pot. Stir until melted.
  3. Stir and sprinkle Italian bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese until desired coverage (~1/4 cup each)
  4. Enjoy! Or….
  5. FOR OVER ACHIEVERS: Put macaroni on a baking sheet and broil until a little crispy on the edges (~2 minutes)

Word Strips – “I Know that My Savior Loves Me”

I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips-page-001

Someone posted this link on the primary chorister FB group about an idea on how to teach “I Know that my Savior Loves Me” from www.lds.org.

I made the word strips and decided to share them if anyone wants it.

Here is the word document for altering: I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips

Here is a PDF of small font: I Know that My Savior Loves Me Word Strips

2014 Blog Recap

Salt Lake Temple Lights

So I made up some blog goals for 2014 last January. How did I do?

4 out of 13 completed

8 out of 13 partially completed

4 out of 13 not completed

That’s not bad! I thought I would’ve done horrible since I spent 6 months recovering from a data disaster and most of the year figuring out what was making me sick. Then having two active little boys, this blog just wasn’t a priority!

SO ONE BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE READERS FOR BEING PART OF OUR FAMILY BLOG!

What’s in store for 2015? I guess you’ll have to wait and see.

One thing is that I’m not going to focus on is the numbers but on the individual people who read and comment. Numbers don’t matter as much as people.

I’m excited to get to know you guys better!

Follow the Prophet – Wiggle Song Cards!

I’ve been pondering on how I can teach all nine verses of “Follow the Prophet” song from the LDS Children Song Book which is the theme song for March 2015 in the current 2015 Sharing Time Manual: I Know My Savior Lives.

I guess it’s a new year resolution for me to learn all nine verses! I thought it would be fun to make it part of the weekly “wiggle song” choices so I made these “Follow the Prophet Wiggle Cards!”

It’s the same concept as what you would do with the song “Do as I’m Doing.” I made up actions that kinda associate to each prophet.

Hopefully it will help get all the wiggles out! :)

Enjoy!

2015 LDS Sharing Time Manual Songs

This is the CD that I made for our primary for 2015. These are ALL the songs in the 2015 Sharing Time Manual: I Know My Savior Lives. The CD includes the monthly songs, the songs that appear in the weekly sharing time lessons plus a couple that the primary presidency picked for the optional songs.  You can download the CD Cover and music in one .zip file here.

PS – It’s easier to email out a .zip file than burning CDs!!  I learned from experience. :)

LDS Reverent & Wiggle Songs List

little-boy-folding-arms-whitaker-387247-print

I’m trying to figure out how to pick and teach reverent songs and wiggle songs.  I found a wiggle song list on SugarDoodle but I couldn’t find a reverent song list so I made one to match it.  I also colored this reverent boy picture from www.lds.org and took the primary girl graphic from Susan Fitch Design.

I am printing and laminating two copies. One for me and one for the primary pianist. Hopefully this will help us not have to scramble for song ideas on Sunday.

You can download the PDF version here: PDF Reverent and Wiggle Songs List.

These songs are from the LDS Children Song Book.
