August 2016 LDS Visiting Teaching Message | Prickly Pear Design Co. | Hand drawn florals | Home Should Be the Place Quote | Relief Society Free Printable



The Visiting Teaching Message for August 2016 is about Nurturing Families Together.  I loved everything that was included, as I brainstormed for this month’s printable, I was drawn to the quote by Elder Marvin J. Ashton declaring that “home should be the place…where we learn to be our best selves.” I love the idea that home is a learning place, that it can be filled with mistakes, second chances, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

The printable’s finished size is 5″ x 7″ and prints 2 two a page so you’ll only have to print a sheet or two and then take just a moment to trim the edges. You get to add whatever colors you’d like to the greenery – I dusted off my watercolor set and got to work. Tip: Even your child’s water set will do. To create shading,  simply watercolor the images and let them dry. Then pat the excess water off your brush before loading it with paint – then create your accents toward the centers of the leaves and let dry again. 

A few other ideas for these darling printables:

  • use them for a RS activity night that’s focused on temple work and covenants. Let the sisters color the florals themselves at the activity.
  • drop off a black and white copy with a small box of colored pencils for your visiting teaching sisters – coloring is quite popular as a de-stresser activity.
  • use them as RS birthday gifts. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and meaningful birthday gift for your sisters – this could be it!
  • print one off for yourself if you’re looking for a cute & simple craft for yourself or as part of a night with your girlfriends.
