Make Your Words Soft and Sweet….

Lindsey E. “Prior to the lesson I created a poster with this saying on it, “Make your words soft and sweet because you may have to eat them.” All of the words were hand-written except for ‘soft’ which was written with mini marshmallows and ‘sweet’ which was written with sugar (you can use sugar cubes).

“I attached this hand out to a mini sandwich bag which contained some tiny marshmallows and a little bit of sugar so the girls would remember it.”

An anonymous user submitted this document based on “I Don’t Have to Make Everything All Better”, written by Gary and Joy Saunders Lundberg. She says, “I am using this in lesson 8 to help the girls learn how to effectively communicate, with each other, and at home.”

The font she used is Curlz MT available here.

Ways to Improve Communication in the Family

An anonymous user shared this document to accompany Lesson 8 in YW Manual 2. She says, “Use this in the lesson as you discuss good family communication — Then
girls can take it home so they can share it with family members and work on these communication skills.”

Would make a nice FHE lesson outline, too.

Manual 2 Lesson 8 – Mint Condition Communication

Joie R. shared this handout saying, “I came up with this when doing lesson #8: Improving communication skills. I thought of making bite sized cupcakes and attaching a note that said ‘Good communication can be a piece of cake’. But, since it was fast Sunday, I decided not to tempt myself or the girls with something so readily edible. I had some red and white mints in wrappers at home so I made a card that I printed out on white paper and then cut out over pink cardboard stock. I then taped a mint to each one. I thought it might be an idea others could use for numerous lesson ideas if they changed the wording. It turned out really cute and I can’t wait to give them to the girls.”
