embark on a journey Lds
This year the theme for the LDS church youth is Doctrine and Covenants 4:2.  For New Beginnings we wanted to use the theme but have our own special twist on it. We decided to go with the theme “Embark on your Journey… an Adventure Awaits”
I used this image of a  Girl on a bicycle silhouette to represent leaving on a journey. I used the ship and anchor theme for our last YW in Excellence.

Orange you glad, Valentine Printable

Continuing on with my candy free valentines, I made this fun Orange printable with heart shaped wedges.  You can pair it with a real orange or you can use the cups of Mandarin oranges.  My local Sam’s Club has them on sale through the end of January. They make an adorable treat for the kids!
I know this one had been done before.  But I really like having it on these Mandarin orange cups.  They can eat them now or later.

My Nutty Valentine printable

While shopping at Sam’s Club I found these little Debbie snacks.  I remember them fondly from my childhood.  I though they would make an adorable Nutty Valentine  for one of my kids classes at school.  For 12 snack packs it cost about $4.  I can have a fun treat for my daughters class for under $8.  Perfect!

You could also put this printable eith a package of trail mix or nuts if you don’t want to use cookies.

Cheese and Crackers Valentine

When you were a kid do you remember those little packs of Crackers with a cheese  and the little red stick to spread it with.  They were a special treat for my family.  We loved them on car trips or on special occasions.  And know my kids love them too.
My local Sam’s Club carries them so I sometimes treat my kids with them in their school lunch.  So this year I though it might be cute to make them into a Valentine.  For about $8 for 24 packs and my free printable you can make your own Valentine for you kids classes!
You’re the Cheese to my Crackers Valentine!
