Do you have a hard time keeping your YW interested in completing their Personal Progress? I am always on the look-out for new ways to get the YW excited, and one thing they always enjoy is food and candy. 🙂 One day while we were at the grocery store I saw a pack of UP2U gum and had an idea for a Personal Progress treat.

I grabbed a pack of gum, and went home and got to work creating. I created this little UP2U Gum Label that you can tape to a pack of UP2U gum! Genius! haha
The front flap of the printable says:


Lift the flap, and this is what they see. Isn’t it great!?! Because really, Personal Progress is UP 2 them to finish. You can help and encourage them all you want, but they have to be the ones to do it, and complete it.
On the back I added a great quote I found from Sister Elaine Dalton.
Hopefully a good quote and some yummy gum can get those YW excited about Personal Progress…fingers crossed. 🙂
While my Mom was visiting us a few weeks ago I showed her my UP2U Gum Label and she loved it. She then said, ‘You should make one for Visiting Teaching.’ Hmmm…..why didn’t I think of that. So, I got to work & created one for Visiting Teaching too!

 As I was looking for quotes about Visiting Teaching I saw one from Bonnie D. Parkin that said, “We don’t ‘do’ Visiting Teaching. We ‘are’ Visiting Teachers.”
So, I decided to type
“Being a Visiting Teacher Is…” instead of “Doing Visiting Teaching Is…”

These would be great to handout out to your Relief Society sisters at the beginning of the month or at a Visiting Teaching activity.


UP2U Gum Label

Here’s a quick tutorial for putting together these cute UP2U Gum gifts.

1. Print out my UP2U Gum Labels (link below)
2. Cut them out
3. Fold on the dotted/dashed lines
{the label will go around the pack of gum}
4. Tape/Glue the back of the printable (where the quote is) to the back of the pack of gum. You can also add a small piece of tape/glue onto the top of the pack of gum.
5. Fold over the top flap
6. Hand out to your YW or RS Sisters and Enjoy!
{I added a strip of Washi tape to the front to keep the front flap down. You can do this or not.}

I hope you enjoy my UP2U Gum Labels and use them for your YW or RS sisters. What do you do to help the YW work on their Personal Progress? What about Visiting Teaching? I’d love to know, so leave me a comment with your ideas. 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day!

    Thank you so much for sharing these, Sheena! I couldn’t find the gum locally, so had to order some off of Amazon. But I’m so excited to hand these out to our RS sisters and try to encourage them to BE visiting teachers!

    I would love to use this for my Visiting Teaching conference. Can you re-post the link? Or send it to me?

    Thank you so much!

      Hi Leiane! Sorry about that. I think I recently updated some things on that post, and must have deleted the links! I added them once again, so you should be able to print them out. 🙂
