Primary Program – 2015 Program

Pass out a customized sacrament meeting program to to the congregation the day of your primary program.  They will love how each program is created by each of your primary children!
Scroll through my current year’s program HERE.
Last year we had the kids color individualized programs that I created HERE then we gave them to the clerk who makes the copies and he had the inside all printed after they were colored.  It ended up being a little bit of a hassle on a few accounts:
  • the kids wrinkled the programs as they were coloring so they ended up jamming the printer several times (so sorry!)
  • it was a lot of effort to get them ALL colored

So I tailored it a little bit this year to hopefully make a customized program but without so much work!

Our ward will be using this as our program this year:

I have an original copy available at primary over the next few weeks for all the kids to sign their names on that back page (this way I can make sure I get all the kids to sign it).  If space is limited it can trickle on to the front but I’d like to have it stay on the back (just my weird OCD-ness coming out I suppose).

I can’t take credit for the idea – a grandfather in my ward handed me a program from one of his grandkids’ programs to show me this idea and they had a program signed by all the primary!  So thank you to whoever came up with this great idea!!

I do have our ward name and the date printed right under the picture of Christ but I didn’t want it blasted all over the internet so it’s blank here – sorry I cannot create editable documents in my program I use to create these.  You can just leave it blank if you like.  
But if you want to do a LITERAL cut and paste, I used the Cambria font, size 25 and put it on 2 lines and centered it in that bottom space below the picture.  Cut out your typed up document of your ward’s name and date and tape it in place.  When you make copies, you’ll never know it’s 2 papers taped together!
However, if you’d like to have the kids color every program (it really is fun and we even had members in the congregation return programs to their creators last year!), I also made ones similar to last year:

Primary Program Variations:

The first one is for kids to draw a picture of them with the Savior in the box and sign their name…

(I’d recommend this for Senior and the older Junior kids).
The second is just a coloring page…

When the kids color these, DO NOT USE CRAYONS if you will be running them through the printer again.  The wax jams the machine.  Use colored pencils.
OR what I would suggest if you use these is to see if you can get the programs completely printed (inside and all!) before the kids get to color them.  That way you can use crayon and they can get crinkled with no problem :).  It would just take some serious coordinating with whoever does your programs.
Then to insert into our programs, I like to put these comment cards:
Camille's Primary Ideas: Primary Program Comment Cards for the program
The best way to use these is to place baskets at the back of both doors.  Members can place their filled out comment cards there as they leave the meeting.  I do recommend asking the bishopric to announce how to use these before they turn the time over to the primary as well.
Then in primary right after the program,  we read the comments to the kids.  I like to read a few in between the songs to break it up.  It really is fun to hear what the congregation had to say!
You can download my documents at my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are at the bottom of this post.  Print off what you need/want as you most likely won’t be using them all :).
If you have other ideas that you use for your physical program during the primary presentation, please leave comments!!  I’d love to hear what your ward does!
