Keepers at Home

Today we had our weekly Keepers at Home Club meeting. The girls received award pins for the first time and were very excited about it! Many of them received awards for memorizing all the books of the Old Testament as well as their Card Making skill pin. Others completed various skills at home and were awarded pins for Insects, Pets, Witnessing, and more!
After our award ceremony, the girls completed their lessons on Compassion by creating these cute little booklets to help them remember what compassion is, and how to be compassionate towards others.
The outside cover says Compassion Is... and then you open it up and the inside is shaped like a cross, with a reminder on each portion of the cross.
The girls did a great job creating their little books. I found the idea on one of my favorite blogs called   There are all sorts of creative books you can make with your kids and the directions are very easy to follow!
Next, we worked on our Snacks and Drinks skill and the girls made a fruit tray with strawberry yogurt dip.

They really seemed to enjoy this activity and had a lot of fun talking with each other while mashing strawberries, cutting fruit, and mixing the ingredients to make the dip.

The fruit dip was absolutely delicious and really was the perfect snack for this hot, humid day! It looks like summer is already here!
