Recently I helped to run a Relief Society Activity (read women’s activity if you are not LDS) at church. I was able to design a set of Family Home Evening Blocks.
For anyone who doesn’t know what Family Home Evening is, it is a program instigated by our church where we set aside one night a week (the same night usually each week) to spend time together as a family. We have a lesson, an activity, sing some songs, and always it must end with a treat (why else would our kiddies sit still long enough to get through the lesson??). Ususally each family member is assigned to take responsibility for something, hence the assignment blocks
This is what I came up with
Six assignment blocks reading Op Prayer, Scripture, Music, Lesson, Cl Prayer and Treat. These sit on a base block, and each block has a heart stick which will have the name of the family member responsible for that assignment on it.
The night required quite a bit of preparation as we were catering for 30 women! Thankfully I didn’t have to prepare everything on my own. Our Relief Society President and another couple of friends were awesome in helping out. And my loving husband took control of the saw while I held the pine (good thing I trust him – I still have all my fingers). I think we all had fun, and despite some wet paper making the vinyl a little hard to apply, everyone went home happy!
We took a couple of photos of the finished products
A different colour
And this is a larger set (8 blocks, instead of the standard 6), because not everyone has the same amount of kids
I was asked if this is an item I am selling…the answer is YES! I’m taking a plunge and hoping to start my own little hobby business of vinyl signs and crafts. So if you are interested in anything you see on my blog, please ask if there is no mention of price. Family Home Evening Block sets will be priced at $19 for a standard 6 block set. Add $1 per extra block if you are after a larger set. Sets can easily be customised for your family with assignments that are more applicable to you. For orders contact me via email email@example.com
Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!
