YW Value Color Crayons

I made some Young Women value crayons today, and am so smitten by their cuteness. We are encouraging our girls to read in the Book of Mormon every day, for at least 5 minutes (remember PROS?), and are having an activity this week to discuss ways to study the scriptures.

We’ll have a pack of crayons for each girl, and a missionary copy of the Book of Mormon with the friend tag attached. I still have my tag on my personal set of scriptures – and I love how I am reminded every time I glance at it that the scriptures are my friend and I shouldn’t neglect them! Every time I pick them up, I want to say “Hello, Friend”.  :)

This time I printed on 8 1/2 x 11″ shipping labels. I got these at Staples, but they are also available at Amazon for laser or jet-ink printers.

 

You may remember that they wrap around the cover and have points from Elder Scott’s talk, “The Power of Scripture”. The original download had just one tag to a page, but I’ve squeezed four to a page, to make it more economical to print for a large group. Click the following to download the new Scripture Friend Tag.

Back to the Value Crayons! Each wrapper has the value color, and scripture associated with that value, printed on it.

I am using crayons from a Rose Art 27-pack, so don’t have anything fancy like silver or gold (which would be amazing!). I instead used gray for Faith (since white wouldn’t show up too well on the scripture page) and brown for Virtue (the closest thing to gold that’s not easily mistaken for yellow or orange).

I printed the crayon wrappers using black ink on colored paper. Click the following to download the YW value crayon wrappers.

If using Crayola crayons, the wrappers need to be a little longer. This version has the wrappers spaced further apart for a longer crayon.

  14. mandi says:

    completely freaking out at how adorable these are!
    We read the BOM last year, but the seminary girls didn’t participate as they were slogging through the OT. Do you encourage your Seminary kids to read both books?

    • Kristin says:

      Yes, we are – we talked about this very thing – and decided in the end, that life is always going to be busy, and the habits we form as youth stick with us. Eeking out just 5 minutes a day is possible for most of us!

  15. Jennifer says:

    I love this idea. I want to do this with my YW, I can’t get the YW Crayon Value Wrappers to open. I was able to get the “Hello” tag and the talk.

    Thanks for posting the great idea!

  16. Linsey says:

    This is such an awesome idea! We are making them for our YW this week and we were wondering what kind of adhesive you used to adhere the labels to the crayons! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Erica says:
