I'm excited!!

I found this on Pinterest.  It's a journal all about the Primary theme this year for little ones.  I made one for Jackson and Austin.  It's a little too much for Austin at this age, but if I make something for one child I need to make one for both.  I printed out the journal pages and put them in a braded folder in plastic protectors. I plan on working from this journal the first FHE of the month.

I'm always excited about new FHE ideas, but I'm really excited because the journal challenges children to memorize one scripture a month.  I think this is a GREAT idea!  I made a flashcard for each monthly scripture and I used some clipart to help Jackson remember the scripture on his own.  The plan is to use the flashcard every night when we read the scriptures as a family.  I have to say I'm quite impressed with my idea and the outcome.  If you'd like a copy of the flashcards just let me know and I'll send you a copy.

Here's their folders and flashcards

Here's a close up of Jackson's first journal entry.  The question was "What choices have you made that are pleasing to Heavenly Father?".  His answer was:  sharing, praying, getting dressed, listening, and giving hugs.  He's such a good boy, but the best part is the pictures he drew.  On the right is a picture of Jackson with big ears to represent his listening skills, and on the left is a picture of Austin, Jackson, and Daddy giving each other big hugs!  so. flippin. cute.
