Barbell Snack

Father’s Day Snack Gift

For Father’s Day we decided on a very simple gift for the fathers.  I bought some meat sticks and a variety of small candy bars for the children to choose from to give their fathers. All you have to do is cut a short length of ribbon to tie them together and the kids can […]

Starburst Tithe Lesson Intro

One person gives the other ten Starburst (or other individually wrapped candy) as a gift.  The person graciously accepts and is very happy […]

Easter Egg Hunt

Our egg hunt last year was a bit of a fiasco, and for that reason I decided to change our method this year.  For a few weeks beforehand we asked for donations of candy for the egg hunt.  We asked that the candy be individually wrapped and not contain nuts.  People dropped the candy off […]

Mother’s Day Gift 1

For Mother’s Day one of our teachers made up these little gifts for all the moms.  (Yes, a mom is making gifts for all the other moms.  Isn’t that usually how it works out?)  She just filled some little drawstring gift bags with Hershey’s Hugs and attached this gift tag.  The art came from Carla […]
