EMOJI Seek It - Matching Game Printable!




The MOST COMMON requests we are getting for more Seek It Games is for non-holiday ones that can be played in the classroom or for Family Game Night anytime!  We have several super fun ideas up our sleeves... and this is the first!  My teens love this one, as to my littles - even my hubs thought it looked fun!

If you are new to Lisa's Seek It Games, they are simple to make and fun to play.  Each card has one (and only one) match... each player just needs to find their match to the center card first! It's a fast game and fun to play multiple rounds... works with 2 or more players, there are 55 cards. An instruction card is included. Also, I get lots of questions about printing, print settings - you can read this tutorial here for more tips on that.


Once it's printed, you COULD painstakingly cut with scissors, but these are 3" round cards, perfect for punching with a 3" round craft punch!  I laminate my cards (for durability) after punching, then trim with scissors.  My punch won't punch through lamination (I prefer 5ml pouches) - nor do I want to dull it by trying.  It takes me about 30 minutes to trim them all - so I have my girls help me while we watch something funny on TV. 

My FAVORITE way store the games are in these cute round tins with window lids - they fit the card and the stack perfectly!! I also love the tins because they protect my cards (that I spent so much time punching and trimming)!  Or, for a less expensive option, 4x6 organza bags work great and are just as cute.

#PRINCEofPEACE Printables {freebies}




I'm SO EXCITED to finally show you what I've been working on - #PRINCEofPEACE printables!!

One week from today, the LDS Church will release it's official Easter Video introducing the focus and theme for this Easter (I'll link it up here and share it as soon as it's available). I've come to LOVE and anticipate each of these initiatives and am so blessed I get to work directly with Mormon.org and Bonneville Communications to help spread the word about it and give you ideas on how you can incorporate it into your home, family and callings!

 To help jump start my creativity, I got to join a group in Salt Lake last week to preview the video and was BLOWN AWAY. It's a goose-bumping, impactful 2 minutes that will leave you feeling both inspired and loved by our Savior. I was moved very deeply by the words that faded in and out while the music played and the pictures scrolled. Immediately, I knew I wanted to use these exact words in my art.  If you can picture it, I was scribbling notes in the dark as fast as I could to catch it all.  


Aren't those words beautiful?! Gives me goose bumps just reading it! I'm so excited I get to release my printables early - gives us all time to get them printed, framed and on the wall before the video is even released!  Talk about planning ahead!  The subway will be beautiful in our homes, but also perfect for bulletin boards, the smaller sizes can be delivered to Visiting Teaching Sisters and will make great handouts for any class as well.  Don't wait until Easter though... pass them around now so everyone can get their minds focused on the Savior! I love how this message is TIMELESS, it extends beyond our particular faith and will reach millions of hearts... it transcends beyond Easter and I plan to find a spot in my home to leave it up all year long... ♥


Each day throughout Holy Week leading up to Easter Sunday (April 9-16) there will be a new "Principle of Peace" to reflect on. Each day will have a short video story of someone who has found peace through living that principle - along with a scripture and some suggestions on how you can reflect and incorporate it into your life.  I thought a banner would be a great visual way to remind you and your family of the principles each day.  


For the last several initiatives I've done nuggets - so that was a given!! I also decided to add bookmarks so our kids and families could carry these words with them. Many of you are Youth Leaders and LOVE a good handout... these would make a great gift the day you introduce the theme and show the video!


To finish off the kit, I wanted to include an easy activity that could be used as an FHE or as part of a Youth Activity.  What I plan to do with my family is show the video (it's only 2 minutes), have them work on this "Principles of Peace" Goal Sheet where they can pick one principle, record an example of it, find a scripture about it and set a small goal to develop it.  Then, have them partner up to do this Names of the Savior Word Search (key included). Top it off with a nugget handout and you're done!


I want to take a quick moment and let you know that these principles have helped me through the scariest and most uncertain times in my life. My husband has fought cancer twice and never fully recovered from all the chemo, radiation and the stem cell transplant that finally got him into complete remission. If I had to wrap up those 4 years in a small paragraph... I would say it was undoubtedly through the compassion of others that I saw my Savior's love most prominently. It was through the prayers of others that I could literally muster the strength to get out of bed most days. Their prayers fill my soul in ways I cannot adequately describe - there is a true and literal power that comes from prayer. It was leaning on the faith of our Priesthood Leaders and the blessings they gave him that bridged the gap when I wondered if we'd ever get through it. It was the unconditional forgiveness extended to me from the Lord when I doubted His plan. I grew and matured so much during those years and possibly most profound for me, was learning that no matter what, I could find peace in being grateful for what I did have. I learned I could find peace in prayer and a special peace that comes only from reading the Scriptures. I came to LOVE the New Testament, reading about the Savior, his miracles and the stories of healing gave me a kind of hope I had never known. Hope in life, hope in healing and ultimately, hope in His plan for me and my family. I'm forever grateful for a Heavenly Father and Savior that was patient with me while I learned (and continue to learn) these sacred lessons.  I know they live, I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and that it's THROUGH Him and BECAUSE of Him that we can find true peace no matter our circumstances.

The best way to stay updated on each day's topics will be to follow any of the Church's Social Media feeds (like Facebook or Twitter).  If you want a bit more background to help you plan an activity, LDS Media Talk did a great article for reference.

French Toast Easter Bake + Scripture Scavenger Hunt!




I loved being part of the Mormon.org #HALLELUJAH Initiative as an official kit maker last Easter! My French Toast Easter Bake Recipe and Scavenger Hunt was featured on blogs all over the web and was downloaded thousands of times! So, whether you need a reminder to get your ingredients again this year or maybe you never saw it... I thought it was a good time to repost!  

Not only is this recipe delicious - it's super special! Each of the ingredients in the recipe has been related to the Savior; making it not only a great Easter-Eve Lesson, but also a tasty Easter Morning Breakfast Tradition!


To get started, print off the Scripture Scavenger Hunt PDF and let your kids dive into the New Testament to learn more about the Savior as they fill in the blanks to complete the recipe!  A couple of the scripture clues are a tiny bit tricky, so be sure to use Page 2 to find extra clues. 

(All the downloads are at the end of the post)


Next, it’s time to get baking!! After many attempts with this recipe (and fails) – I finally figured out the perfect bread for making my French Toast Bake… bagels! They are soft AND dense which allows them to effectively soak up the egg mixture AND maintain their shape for soggy-free baking. A fun twist to this might be Cinnamon Swirl bagels or even gluten-free ones for those intolerant.


From there… just follow the recipe! Cut bagels into ½” cubes, make and beat the egg mixture, then pour over the bread.


Be sure to recruit your kids to help you, they’ll have fun making the recipe with the clues they found! I like to mix the cubes and egg mixture in separate bowl to make sure the bread gets well coated – in fact, for that step, talk to your kids about how the tempest was raging and the Savior calmed the storm… so get those cubes tossing and turning like a ship at sea!  As noted in the image above, this is a “make ahead” recipe and it should be refrigerated overnight.  This allows extra time for the bread to adequately soak up the egg mixture. Then, before baking, prepare a brown sugar crumble and “spread” it across the top, just like the Palm Branches were spread for the Savior as he entered Jerusalem! (Crumble recipe included on the cards.)

I included lots of printables… recipe cards in 3 sizes + an easy to print PDF to do the Scripture Scavenger Hunt with your family!

My DARLING friend and neighbor Betsey launched a new business - you might remember that I posted about her KickStarter Campaign on Facebook last Fall.

Give a set in a basket - or hide the Mini-Figs in the eggs... your kids and grandkids will LOVE them!!
