Visiting Teaching Conference: Little Red Hen

My sister shared the following information from a successful visiting teaching conference she was a part of.  I’m posting the outline flyer, and skit based on the story The Little Red Hen. We had a VT Conference during church today.  I thought you might want to put this on your website.  Everything is electronic.  We did the skit (attached), which was printed out in color.  Each person held a sign…

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I am always on the look-out for new ways to get the YW excited to do Personal Progress. One day while we were at the grocery store I saw a pack of UP2U gum and had an idea for a Personal Progress treat.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


I created this little handout that you can tape to a pack of UP2U gum to encourage the YW to keep working on their Personal Progress.

The front flap of the printable says:

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

Lift up the front flap and you’ll see:

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching
On the back I added a great quote I found from Sister Elaine Dalton. 

Hopefully a good quote and some yummy gum can get those YW excited about Personal Progress…fingers crossed. :)
UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching


While my Mom was visiting us a few weeks ago I showed her my UP2U gum idea and she loved it. She then said, ‘You should make one for Visiting Teaching.’ Hmmm…..why didn’t I think of that. So, I got to work & created one for Visiting Teaching.

UP2U Gum Tags for Personal Progress & Visiting Teaching

As I was looking for quotes about Visiting Teaching I saw one from Bonnie D. Parkin that said, “We don’t ‘do’ Visiting Teaching. We ‘are’ Visiting Teachers.”

So, I decided to type

“Being a Visiting Teacher Is…” instead of “Doing Visiting Teaching Is…”


These would be great to handout out to your Relief Society sisters at the beginning of the month or at a Visiting Teaching activity.

To create your own UP2U Treats…
1. Print out my UP2U Gum Labels (link below)
2. Cut them out
3. Fold on the dotted/dashed lines
{the label will go around the pack of gum}
4. Tape/Glue the back of the printable (where the quote is) to the back of the pack of gum. You can also add a small piece of tape/glue onto the top of the pack of gum.
5. Fold over the top flap
6. Hand out to your YW or RS Sisters and Enjoy!
{I added a strip of Washi tape to the front to keep the front flap down. You can do this or not.}

I hope you enjoy my UP2U Gum Labels and use them for your YW or RS sisters.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog.

Have a wonderful day!

Celestial Visiting Teaching Skit

This light-hearted skit was performed by our stake leaders as part of a Stake Leadership Training. The author, Mary C., gave our Relief Society president a copy, who then gave it to me. Basically, 3 sisters act out short parts as Telestial, Terrestrial, and Celestial Visiting Teachers. Hilarious! Can be done with as few as 3 people, up to as many as you want. Requires very few props and no…
