Families are like jelly beans

This bag label, by Trudy, is a fun handout for lessons on families. Trudy’s instructions say:

JELLY BEAN BAG LABEL. Put a small handful of jelly beans into a snack size ziplock bag and print off enough bag labels for the girls in your class. Cut out the labels, fold in half, and staple to the top of your jelly beans. Hand out at an appropriate time during the lesson or at the end.

OBJECT LESSON FOR YW MANUAL 3, LESSON 11: Extended Family Relationships – Separate a bag of jelly beans into a separate glass or other see thru container. Begin handing out the jelly beans to the class while saying things like “these green jelly beans represent my aunt. I remember _____, but I’ve gotten too busy and haven’t seen her in years. These jelly beans remind me of my nephew, who allows ______, but they have moved away and I never see him any more.” and so on until you have given away all but the white jelly beans. When you pick up the white jar of jelly beans, talk about how this is all that’s left and how plain and boring it is, kind of like your life would be without your family. Place a container large enough to hold all the jelly beans and have the girls help you fill it up. Point out how colorful and full the bowl looks and compare it to a family full of love and variety. Now that you’ve got the class’ attention, continue on with the rest of the lesson. You could use the jelly beans as incentive for class participation.

LIfe Savers Wrappers: Thank you

This cute handout is made to look like a roll of Life Savers Candy.

This has You’re a Life Saver Thank you printed on the front, with a blank white space for signatures. The stripes are the same colors as on a real LifeSavers wrapper.

The printable has 4 wrappers per page, full color.

**** Suggestion: Print these wrappers on _coated_ inkjet paper so that the colors are more vibrant, like a real LifeSavers wrapper. Otherwise, the ink will bleed slightly into the paper and turn out kind of faded. ****

Chews the Right Gum Wrapper – Valentine Style

This gum wrapper is sized to fit the 5 stick packages of chewing gum (like Juicy Fruit, WinterFresh, DoubleMint, Big Red, et cetera).

It says “Happy Valentine’s Day ‘Chews’ The Right” on the front. On the back is a blank for you to fill in “To” and “From”.

There are 6 wrappers per 8 1/2 by 11 inch page. Each wrapper is a different color to help you equalize your ink usage and so that you can give the gum to classes made up of both boys and girls. The colors of the wrappers are red, blue, purple, aqua, green, and gold.

I think these would make nice Visiting Teacher gifts, class handouts, or inactive member gifts.

Printing Suggestions: If you’re having trouble getting the GIF or JPG versions to print the correct size, try the PDF version. Also, printing on coated (glossy or matte) ink jet paper will result in brighter colors and more realistic-looking wrappers.

Here’s a picture of the wrapper completed:

LDS Valentines Gift

And here’s a related quote from Elder on the value of reminding ourselves to choose the right: “I hope and pray that you great young people of the Church will have the courage to consistently choose the right! Moreover, I suggest that each of you find or create reminders to help you and your loved ones choose the right when a choice is placed before you. There is power in a tie tack, a CTR ring, or a white dress hanging in the closet if we associate them with our desires for purity and righteousness. Even more important than physical reminders is to have the conviction deep down in our hearts to live the kind of life that will cause us to make the right choices, not only for peace and happiness in the world right now, but also for peace and happiness eternally.” (L. Tom Perry, “Choose the Right,” Ensign, Nov. 1993, 66 — the whole article is about using physical reminders to help us make spiritual decisions)

Eternal Perspective Candy Wrapper

Trudy says:

    I started this lesson with by giving the girls dark chocolate, then semi-sweet chocolate, then some really good milk chocolate… we compared the 3 to How Heavenly Fathers perspective was the best (the milk chocolate) (i did get this idea from another site and I don’t have time to find the exact link right … it was either jennysmith.net, or ywconnection.com)

    (She’s probably talking about this object lesson — Jenny)

    So I have two handouts for this lesson one is the round one of Heavenly Fathers perspective, with several different faces of girls on them, so use the ones that represent your girls the best. and the second handout is a candybar wrapper…. just resize it to anysize candy bar you use… I used a the mini hershey bars… then ones that come in a a pacakage of 4 kinds.
