Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • If you have an older class, Missionary Clue from Green Jell-O with Carrot would be a blast.
  • Pass out some missionary themed chocolates with this wrappers from My Computer is My Canvas.
  • Planning early? Order these Future Missionary tags for your class. They'll love them!
  • Mormon Origami- is great for older classes. I recommend during the shirt origami one although you could also do a tie.  The shirt is basic enough and I know my 8 year old who is in the oldest class can do it.  After making the shirt, they could color it to look like a missionary, add a drawing of their heads, make it into a card to give to a missionary, or turn it into something they could give a friend.  
  • The map activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet is fun way to start the lesson.
