|with fall upon us, a new year of youth group begins. this year, i & another lady, are leading the girls’ middle school small group. i tried to think of a way that would make verse memorization convenient and interesting. while wandering the office supplies aisle at Walmart, i came across some index cards that come with a key ring already attached, and they are perforated down the middle……my creative juices started flowing and i came up with this quick idea.
simply purchase the pack of index cards (perforated, hole-punched and key-ringed) and packs of extra keyrings
tear in half
then place them in piles of 30 (per girl)
attach the key ring
i also made a front and back cover, using cardstock that is cut slightly larger than the index cards. this is where you can be creative. i picked some favorite patterned paper and with my quickutz, cut out my initial. you could do whatever you want.
ribbon was added for added ‘cuteness’
these came out so well! the girls can stick them in their purse or backpacks, attach them to zippers whatever they want! they are small enough to take them anywhere. each week, they can write down their memory verse inside it and almost like flashcards, they will have them right there in one area, ready to learn! (and the possibilities are endless–you could use these for so many different things!!)
