Hey Friends! Emily here from Hey Friend Design Shop, I’m starting off another round of printable shared from the Little LDS Creative Team. I’m excited to be here today to share my new cute Primary Postcard Printable with you all.
Currently, I serve in the Primary Presidency in my ward. A goal we had as a Presidency is to help each child feel of our love for them. But, that’s a bit tricky when we haven’t seen them in Primary for a few weeks. There are lots of reasons Primary kids and their families aren’t there on Sundays. Sometimes its sickness, family trips, holidays, new babies, out of town baptisms, baby blessings, or mission farewells that can keep them from attending. And once in a while, they’ve simply gotten out of the habit of coming and being part of our Ward & Primary Family. We’ve all been there, we missed a few weeks for whatever reason, and wondered if anyone even noticed we were gone.
Primary Postcard Printable
My Presidency wanted our kids to know we’ve missed them, no matter the reason. So we decided to send “We’ve Missed You in Primary” Postcards. My own kids, like most, love to get mail of any kind. They love when something comes with their name on it. Let’s be honest, we all love finding personalized notes and cards in our mailbox.
You can print these Primary Postcard Printables at home fairly quickly and simply. Print one side first, then run your paper back through the printer/copier and print the back side. The front and back should line up just right. Then with a couple quick cuts you will end up with four postcards per sheet. For my ward, I printed out several sheets of postcards on white cardstock, but colored would be cute as well. Grab a sheet of postcard stamps and you’re ready to take your Postcards to Primary.
Our secretary keeps a list of Primary kids we haven’t seen in a couple weeks. We will add these darling Postcards to class roll folders. The teachers can have the class color the front, sign their names, and write a short note. Then they can leave the Postcard in the roll, or return to the Presidency at the end of Primary each week. After our secretary gathers all the colored postcards, she can address them so they will be ready to be mailed the next day. Super Easy.
.I felt strongly that the Primary classes should be involved in sending the Postcards, rather than a quick note from the Primary Presidency. By having the Primary kids involved with the Postcards, we are teaching them how to be aware and spread kindness to those around them.
.I hope those of you who serve in Primary will enjoy using and sending my Primary Postcard Printable to your Primary kids to show them how much they are loved and missed.
“May we show increased kindness toward one another, and may we ever be found doing the work of the Lord.”—President Thomas S. Monson
