Did you just find out you are in charge of team snacks and the game is in less than an hour? I got you girl! Throw these gatorade bottle labels on and print out these soccer tags and you’ll look like you’ve been planning this for weeks! They’ll give you your soccer mom trophy and raise you up on their shoulders at the end of the game. 😉
Well a year has come & gone and it’s soccer season again. For the first time we have TWO kids enrolled, which means two practices, two games and TWO SNACKS!… Read the rest
Second started preschool this month and I am lucky enough to be able to send him to a dear friend a few hours a week. I am so grateful that she is teaching my little one this year- she’s amazing! Anywho, “c” week was our week for snacks. I saw a photo floating around the internet of grape caterpillars and thought that was genius! There was no blog post or anything that I could find to accompany it, however, so I thought I’d share how we put together & used our grape caterpillars.
Are your kids as obsessed with Rescue Bots as mine are? Boy howdy I think I was actually more excited than they were when the third season was put on Netflix- finally something new to hear in the background!! Second is turning 4 this week and I kept asking him what he wanted for his birthday, and every time I got the same response: cupcakes. Well, that sounded just perfect to me.

Every Sunday feels like I am putting on a massive event just getting through Primary… am I alone in that? For me, keeping parents informed with a nice newsletter serves multiple purposes. I feel like if you hand them this nice looking, well thought out newsletter each month not only are they informed, but they know you care, you work hard, and hopefully they will feel more inclined to be involved! Today I am sharing a primary newsletter template that you can adjust for your ward along with some pointers and tips I have learned along the way! Hope it helps you in your calling 🙂
Here is an example of what our finished newsletter looks like:
I think some important elements to a newsletter are:
The name of your ward
The month the newsletter is for
A list of upcoming events for both parents & teachers to mark on their calendars including
upcoming ward events
schedule changes (stake conference, general conference, 5th sunday, primary program etc)
cub scouts & activity days
The months theme, scripture & song
Assignments for the month including opening prayer, scripture, talks & closing prayers
Birthdays for that month
Contact information of the primary presidency in case parents or teachers need to get ahold of you
Article of Faith or spotlight or whatever other important things you want to include
A nice seasonal image or picture (notice the apple for september=back to school).
