It just so happens that our New Beginnings program is scheduled to be held on Leap Day this year: February 29th. I thought it would be fun to plan the evening around this theme of “taking a leap”, and thereby jumping into Personal Progress with renewed enthusiasm. I’d love to meet with our Beehives turning 12 this year and take some photos of them leaping, and introduce them by talking about things that make them “jump for joy”. There is also a leap of faith involved when young women first begin working on experiences and projects, that the time and effort they put into these things will reap a great harvest of spiritual growth and understanding.
They can be made in all the value colors, and then used as decoration on the refreshment table as well. I have two versions you can download: one with the date and time, and one without. Print on cardstock to make the best leapers.
This video shows how to fold the frogs.
You could make these froggy cupcakes for refreshments. Click on the photo above for how to make.
One last thought about taking leaps of faith: When we stretch ourselves to try something new, when we jump out of comfort zones, we rise to greater heights and have moments of beauty and brilliance that otherwise may not have happened. We arise and shine forth!
