Alright, I am once again asking for all of your awesome ideas. A few days ago I received an email from a wonderful sister, Teylor, asking for ideas for Substitute 'Thank You' gifts and also ideas for 'We Miss You' cards for the children that were gone on Sunday and for those that might not come as often as we'd like. :)
I have a few ideas I'd like to share and then I would LOVE it if all of you shared what you do in your primary.
Substitute 'Thank You' Gifts
When I was in the Primary Presidency we had a bag of 'Thank You' goodies in our closet. Attached to each snack was a cute little 'thank you' note.
I like the food idea, because who doesn't like a yummy little treat, right!?!
1. I just made some yummy cookies today and while enjoying the yummy cookies (they were sooo good, hehe) an idea came to mind:
"Thanks for 'chipping' in today!"
Attach this to a bag of cookies. Since we don't always know when there will be a substitue just use 'Famou Amos' cookies or 'Chips Ahoy'.
2. I saw this cute Idea on the Idea Door:
Get a Hershey's Kiss and Hershey's Hug and tape/glue them bottom to bottom. Then place the Kiss and Hug in a plastic spoon and wrap it in a goodie bag, cellophane, or netting and tie it with a bow. Then add a note that says 'A spoonful of hugs and kisses for your willingness to serve!"
3. How about this one?
We 'Do-nut' know what we would have done without your help today. Thanks!
Attach it to a package of donuts.
4. To use any type of sweet treat, use this:
"Thanks for substituting in Primary today. You are too sweet!
Attach to any bag of sweets.
5. I saw this on Pinterest as a Valentine, but you could easily use this as a Thank You:
"You are 'O-fish-ally' the best! Thanks for helping in Primary today.
Attach to a bag of 'Goldfish' crackers (any flavor) or a bag of 'Swedish Fish'.
Ok, so there's a few I thought of. Do you have any cute ideas that you use? Do you use treats or soemthing
'We Missed You' Cards
Teylor also wondered if I had any 'We Missed You' cards on my blog. She wants to give these cards to the children that weren't at church, so they know they were thinking about them. Unfortunately, I don't have any cute ideas/cards for this, but I think it's a great idea.
Children love to know that you're thinking about themm that you know them, and that you love them. So the idea of giving them a little note is wonderful.
Do any of you have any cute ideas for this?
And what about birthday cards/gifts for the children that don't make it to Primary as often?
Any ideas??? Please share!
