{Primary} Primary Helper Sticks

By [email protected] (Sheena Perron) Sometimes it is hard choosing your helpers during Sharing Time. Especially when you say, “I’m only going to pick children that are being reverent.” And then miraculously…everyone is super reverent! I also have a hard time because I have 3 children in Primary and I don’t want the others to think I am favoring my children (silly…I know, but that is just how I feel).

So to solve these issues and to learn each child’s name we have decided to use ‘Helper Sticks’.

What do you think? I really like how they turned out.Want to know how I made them? Keep on reading!
Supplies Needed:- White Full Sheet Sticker Paper(I found mine at my local Office Store, but you can also find it on Amazon).-Jumbo Popsicle Sticks- Scissors (I used my Silhouette to do the cutting)- Marker- Jar or Small Can

As I said above, I used my Silhouette Cutter to cut out my labels. I created the labels using the Silhouette software, printed them out onto the sticker paper and then had the machine cut them.
If you don’t have a Silhouette, no worries!
First you will need to create what you want your labels to look like ORyou can use the ones I created.Click on the link below to download and print out my Popsicle Stick labels. They will look exactly like the ones pictured above, but the name box is blank. I did leave the ‘visitor’ one as is.

Once you have printed out all the labels that you need your next job will be to cut them out.Using scissors, cut around each label. Cut, Cut, Cut, until all labels are done.
Now, get your popsicle sticks and apply each of the stickers onto the sticks.

After each of the stickers are on the sticks get a marker and label each stick with each of the children’s names.
Finally, get a jar or a cute container and place your fun ‘Helper Sticks’ inside!We have 2 buckets for our Primary. We use one as a ‘Pick Me’ and then the other is for ‘Already Picked’. This helps us to know that everyone has had a turn. It may not happen in one week, but by having the 2 buckets we can know who was picked as a helper last week and be able to pick those that might not have helped.
