Help #LIGHTtheWORLD with Service Stars

December 1st is the official worldwide day of service. To kick things off, I thought I’d share my simple solution for encouraging service at home. I call them service stars. They’re quick, easy and pretty darn adorable. ūüôā

I’ve never been much of an advent girl. We have three birthdays and a ton of family/school events throughout the month of December so I inevitably fall behind on any daily plan. I designed these service stars to help my family remember to¬†#LIGHTtheWORLD¬†this month without the pressure of daily projects.¬†Watch the video below for all the details.

Scripture Clips/Bookmarks

Today I’m sharing a fun and trendy project perfect for your Young Women or even Activity Day Girls Рscripture clips!

scripture-clip-close-up
If you’re familiar with paper planners you’ve probably heard already that they’re making a comeback and the accessories that come with them make planning, or in our case РPersonal Progress, scripture reading, and earning the Honor Bee Рa lot more fun.

These simple clips are a great place marker and who doesn’t love a little sparkle as a reminder to read their scriptures or work on their Personal Progress goals?

scripture clip close up 2
You can make the clips ahead of time and give them as birthday gifts or at your next Evening of Excellence, or this project would be great to include at a mutual activity to keep the girls busy while you had one-on-one time with each girl to pass off completed Personal Progress goals and select new ones.

You might even want to introduce the Honor Bee goal to your girls and encourage them to plan to earn this award as well when they finish their Personal Progress or as they work on earning their medallion. All you‚Äôd need is a cute ‚Äúhoney‚ÄĚ themed dessert and you‚Äôve got a simple and fun mutual activity!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own scripture clips:

paper clips
adhesive
ribbon
rhinestone jewels*
hole punch
patterned paper

*any type of jewel or charm will do; however, these simple rhinestones are just a few dollars at Walmart or you can find similar ones in the dollar bins at Michael’s.

supplies
Select your jewels, adhere them to the end of the paper clip with a permanent adhesive (cover the back with a punched patterned paper circle) and allow to dry. Then knot a small length of ribbon under the jewel and you’ve got a scripture or Personal Progress book clip.

scripture clip with personal progress book
If you’re looking for a great way to help your girls plan Personal Progress goals, you can pick up a free printable (and use this cute clip) to attach it to their Personal Progress book.

The Honor Bee printables pictured are a great way to help the girls track their progress and can be found at Prickly Pear Design Co.
