My idea was sparked by this idea found on sugardoodle.net idea HERE. I didn't purchase the set because I wanted it a little different for our primary, and I prefer church-approved pictures of Christ. But I LOVED the idea of it!
So I made these that can be printed as 5x7 photos:
Download them all HERE. I printed mine at Costco as a 5x7 with a lustre finish. If you want to print them yourself, you can insert the JPEG files into a Word document and adjust the sizes how you like. And please feel free to edit whatever you need (if you are able) to cater to your primary - I'm sorry I can't customize things for everyone.
Then we took the primary kids' pictures today (outside for MUCH better lighting than inside the building!) and I edited them to include their first names, their birth day/month and they have a border of their favorite color around their picture:
I've printed these at Costco as a 4x6, lustre print, and will cut each in half. The pictures will then be posted around each of the monthly theme pictures above (a good help to let us know who's birthday is coming up!).
Each month, I'll add footsteps in between each month to introduce it. Again, more to come.
The background of the bulletin board will hopefully be a light green butcher paper cut at a slight curve, and maybe a little light blue butcher paper on the top for sky (we'll see what I can find!). I'll take more suggestions on this as well!
Then I'll title it: "Journey To Know Our Savior!" Probably in black lettering. Wish I had a Cricut or Silhouette right now! :). Maybe I'll just write it in with a big marker.
Then I need to figure out some sort of border for the edge. Maybe some cool ribbon.
Here's the finished product:
Violin, another chorister in Virginia, shared how her board turned out as well:
Thank you for sharing!!
I'll add in the footsteps between each month on the first Sunday of each month.
