Lesson #20 lm3 Understanding Missionary's Responsibility

IDEA 1) see tutorial below
IDEA 2- I made these cute lil paper shirts for a lesson last year SEE Tutorial HERE  I think it would work great for this lesson too.

I had seen a tutorial HERE a few years ago to make rings out of Shrinky Dinks. You know that plastic stuff you cook. So I made the girls these cute lil rings (costs less than 5 cents each to make). the c2s stands for Called to Serve. I thought it would be a good reminder to serve others. What better way to help us prepare for missions than to serve others.
I used the Shrinky Dink frosted ruff n ready. I bought it at Hobby Lobby for $5.99 then used my 40% off coupon. It comes with 10- 8x10 sheets

 step 1. Cut your rings. To get a fit the size of a chap stick tube I cut mine 1'' by 4.75 inch then rounded the corners a little with scissors.
step 2. Color your design. Color on the frosted side. Because I was doing letters I had to reverse the letters. I just printed some on my computer reversed then traced them. The plastic is pretty see-through before cooking. I then wrote their names and drew some little birds with a little black sharpie marker.

You can also use rubber stamps with the Stazon Ink, or they even sell printable shrinkydink paper. I like to use the girls favorite colors whenever I can just to make things seem a little more personal.
 step 3. Preheat oven to 325. put brown paper bag on the bottom of the pan. Cook design Frosted side up for 1-3 minutes.
 Here it is all shrunk up (:
 Step 4. quickly grab design from oven and wrap around object to get circle (chap stick tube, glue stick tube, marker, etc...). Face the frosted side towards your object so the outside will now be shiny! You have to do this step really quick because it hardens fast. I just pulled my baking tray out of the oven a little and grabbed the plastic with my fingers. I used little gloves for the first few and then got brave and used my bare hands. It was a little hot but not hot enough to burn (:

The shirt idea is great, thanks for the link. My poor girls had a super creative teacher before me. I feel like I torture them every Sunday. I'm trying to get better and you are a big help.
