It’s October! We won’t discuss how close Christmas is…I’ll just jump right in to this month’s cute Visiting Teaching idea. 🙂 This month’s message is once again centered around family, and, as always, it is such a wonderful message. I usually awhile narrowing down what I am going to share for my idea, and this month wasn’t any different. At first I was going to share something about the family being the central ‘piece’ of Heavenly Father’s plan (attached to Reese’s Pieces), but then I was talking to my sister and we were discussing how it states several times about the family being the ‘basic unit’. This caught both of our eyes when we read the message, so we decided to use that for this month’s idea. I hope you like it!
At first my sister thought of giving rulers, and then I said, ‘What about cute measuring spoons?’. We both loved the idea! Really, you could us any type of item that has to do with measurements (ruler, measuring cups, etc.). I decided to go with measuring spoons, and found these cute tiny measuring spoons at a local grocery store.
The measurements on the spoons say ‘Smidgen,’ ‘Pinch,’ and ‘Dash.’ I have seen some really cute measuring spoons at Michael’s before too. With the weather cooling down, I also thought you could give your sisters a container of Hot Chocolate and a tablespoon.
THE FAMILY IS ORDAINED OF GOD
To go along with your spoons or ruler, I created 4 printable quote cards (link below) that have quotes and scriptures from this month’s message.
I printed mine onto brown Kraft cardstock. I love the look of the tags printed on kraft cardstock! I punched a hole at the top of each card, and then tied them to the spoons with some cute red and white twine.
Would you like to use my October 2016 VT printables for your sisters this month? Just click the link below to print. My download includes 2 sets of my quote cards. Just download and print, easy peasy!
I hope you enjoy this month’s idea, and use it for Visiting Teaching this month. If you do I would love to know, so be sure to leave me a comment OR post a picture on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day.
