One year we gave the teachers a small bag with the following in it: crayons, scissors, pencils, eraser and chalk. (Angela)
We laminated CTR shield on one side of a popsicle stick and a sad face on the other, so the children can answer questions about whether something is good or bad. (Idea by Amy)
We made a laminated game board with squares of move forward 2 for having FHE, back 1 - forgot to pray, etc. with blank spots for teachers to write in their own ideas to relate it to a lesson. (Idea by Amy)

For I am a Child of God by Shel Eldredge
I used Crayola Model Magic (soft, squishy, modeling material) for making handprints for the children's Christmas presents for mom and dad. It's nontoxic and it isn't messy or sticky. Roll it out flat and round for a handprint. Stamp the child's hand in washable ink and then on to the mold. It dries in a day, but it isn't brittle and won't break. We had a blast. One package of Model Magic makes three molds, for one package that's $3.99. But you can buy it in bulk and it's cheaper and makes four molds per package. The children LOVED it and it makes a great gift for parents. I sprayed the molds with a clear paint so the ink won't wash off later, that's optional though. I then wrapped it in colored tissue paper.

If the Savior Stood Beside Me by Celeste Bush
One of the counselors in the presidency went out and bought plastic round ornaments from the dollar store, like four in a box. They are a kind of dark pearly green. She put the CTR shield and the letters CTR on them with glue and sprinkled green glitter on top. She said the letters also stand for "Christ the Redeemer". I thought they turned out amazing. She just started working on them this week and we have 50 primary kids. She also said the trick is to get the glitter on quickly so that the glue doesn't run. I suppose you could also you green glitter glue and it would be just as cute. She used gold ribbon as a hanger. (Idea by Trish Haley)
