Dollar Store Family Gift: Testimony Time Capsule

Need a quick (and cheap) gift idea for neighbors, family members, or friends? Want to help those you love reflect on their testimonies of the Savior? If so this gift is for you! 

It is super cheap- everything (but the printables) are available at the Dollar Tree (my favorite store!).  

I did have to go to the grocery store for the mini sparkling ciders since our dollar store was out of stock, but you might be lucky enough to snag some. 🙂

New Years Eve falls on a Monday night. The Testimony Time Capsule book serves as a FHE kit! So you can give the gift of celebrating the New Years AND have a family home evening all prepped. LOVE!!!

There is an idea list that you can pop into the box with some additional activities.

The purpose of the Testimony Time Capsule is simple. Have fun while reflecting on your testimonies. At the end of 2019 you can open up the time capsule and see how your learning has grown.

Check out our post on New Year, New Testament to print off the labels for the Testimony Time Capsule boxes. 

Happy TEACHing! 

New Year, New Testament: Come Follow Me Kick Off Party

What better way to kick off your study of the New Testament than with a New Years Eve party? New Years Eve just happens to fall on Monday, so it makes a perfect family night activity. Just tweak your festivities a bit to include the New Testament and you are ready to go!

Testimony Time Capsule

Our favorite idea is to create a Testimony Time Capsule with your family. Have each member of your family write their testimony and/or their prior knowledge of the New Testament on a piece of paper. You can also have them write questions of things they want to learn about in the New Testament. Place the papers in a container- I used a shoebox we had laying around- and hide it away until the end of the year. At the end of the year have your family members rewrite their testimonies and/or what they now know about the New Testament. Pull out the time capsule and see how their learning has grown!

Countdown to the Bible

If you are crazy like us and *try* and stay up until midnight, add in some fun bible activities throughout the night. Make a paper chain countdown with favorite bible verses to read throughout the night. Put together a puzzle of the Savior. Watch little clips of bible videos while snacking on treats. Wear party hats while reading stories from the New Testament. After setting off confetti poppers talk about how God can make our hearts pop with love as we learn more about Him and follow His example.

Remember to make this a fun experience for your family! Anna at Ivory Bloom and I are both so excited to help your families be more converted to Christ. 🙂

Happy TEACHing and celebrating the bible!

General Conference Puzzle

Who doesn’t love an interactive activity for kids to work on during general conference? I thought it would be fun to make a little puzzle. The plan is my daughter will fill out a few of these during conference talks. She will cut them out and place all the pieces in one baggie. During our next FHE (or in-between sessions) we will try to put the puzzles together- and my daughter can check to make sure we did it right. This will also be a great review for her since she will be checking our work. You want to make sure that there are at least two complete puzzles, otherwise it will be way too easy to put the puzzle back together.

Enjoy!

Happy TEACHing!
