Update: I have made my door poster! And I found my USB cord, yeah!
Here is the front of my poster… I decided to print out pictures of children with the words ‘I Promise’ up at the top. (I have to re-type it and make it bigger.) I don’t know if i’ll post the ‘Heavenly Father Promises…’ banner beside the door or on the back-side of the door.
How I made the door: I drew the shape of the door and then cut. (Don’t cut the left side of the door, so that it is still attached.) Then I covered my door with brown cardstock. Oh, I forgot…I will probably add a little door handle. Find your locks (mind came from Microsoft Word). Then attach those to your door. I put a little piece of velcro on the top and bottom lock, just to make sure the door stayed closed. If you would like to add some children print some out. I got mine from Mormonshare…I love these little boys and girls! I thought this would help the children understand what we promise.
Here are the keys I will be using. I have the covenants, that we make when we are baptized, taped on them.
For Sharing Time: When the children find the keys they will post them on the locks…like this.
Here is the inside of the door. I will have a picture of Heavenly Father/Jesus Christ inside the door. On the back of the door it says ‘Heavenly Father Promises…’ Below it are the things that our Heavenly Father promises us. (The little black strips is the velcro I used.)
There you go…nothing fancy. I hope this helps some of you out. Sorry it took so long to post…we had a long drive home today. 🙂
I’m sorry I have been such a slacker for this week’s Sharing Time. I have been thinking of what to do, but I just couldn’t come up with anything…maybe my brain is on vacation, haha. So, yesterday I drove down to Utah to spend a few days with my Sisters and my Mom (who flew up from Texas…yeah!!). I kept asking them if any of them had any good ideas that I could use, but with 9 crazy kids running around the house none of us really had time to think of ideas.
I was getting ready to post the only idea that I could think of (which is pretty much what is in the Primary Outline), and then my sister came up with this really cute idea!
She came up with an idea using a door, locks and keys (which represent our baptismal covenants). The children will find the keys and unlock each lock. Once all of the locks are unlocked the door will be able to open and reveal Heavenly Father’s Promise to us.

I am going to try to make my door and locks tonight, and post a picture on here tomorrow for all of you to see. So, come back in a few days if you would like to see an example of my door.
I Hope all of you have a wonderful Mother’s Day, you deserve it!!
(I’m sorry I didn’t post any ideas…I totally forgot to post ideas)
