Printable Locker Decor Quotes

IMG_7642
Hi friends,
Have your kids started school yet?  Our neighborhood starts in a few weeks.  I thought it would be fun to make these printable locker quotes.  They are short and simple, but can have such an impact on daily life.
LockerQuotes-01
These quotes are great to use as a gift  for Young Men and Young Women who are starting school. These can be used in lockers, but would also work great as room decor (and not just for teens).  I plan on using the “be still” quote in my family room, and the “Return with Honor” quote right next to the front door.   I think all of these quotes can be helpful to any of us at different times.  How would you use these quotes?

This package comes with 4 quotes in 3 different sizes (3×5, 4×6, and 5×7) and can be purchased here.

Heart,

LDS YW Girls Camp Pillow Treat Tags
Does your ward do pillow treats, or tuck-in treats?  The idea is to give each girl a little treat on her pillow or sleeping bag before bed.

Youth Cell Phone Signs

AirplaneModePicHi friends,
Any of us that teach youth know how awesome it can be, but that it also comes with many challenges. One particular challenge that I hear from just about everyone who teaches in a youth setting is the great Cell Phone Debate.  Cell phones are a HUGE part of our everyday lives, as well as the youth we teach.  So the question is, do electronics have a place in a church setting? How do you handle it in your wards? Today, I am not here to debate that question, rather, I am offering some help.

I have created two different sets of printables for you.  These are great to use in your classroom, during your activities, or even in the home for Family Home Evening or dinner time.

The first printable is a sign reminding the youth to set their phones in airplane mode.  When phones are in airplane mode, there is not the temptation to do things online, or to look at notifications.  This way, they can still look up scriptures and talks, but hopefully won’t be browsing social media. This option can help teach how to use your phones responsibly and teaches youth to be familiar with gospel apps. You can purchase this set here.

The second set / option is a sign requesting phones go into a basket.  I’ve heard many leaders say this works great for them.  Sometimes having a treat next to the basket and sign is an added incentive. Using this option eliminates the distraction of technology. This kit is available for purchase here.

Each kit comes with 5 different color options, and is available as an 8.5×11 sign, as well as 5×7.

CellBasketPicEach ward and each class is different, so prayerfully decide how to handle electronics in your classroom and during weekly activities. This article is a great resource regarding using electronics.  Take a minute and read it over.
