Wahoo!! The church announced the new theme this week! They don't have the new Sharing Time Outline up yet (as of today), but the theme is a great starting point.
Does anyone else get excited? I mean jump of your chair excited?
Okay, for those of you that have been around the block a little bit, you may have noticed that we seem to be on a 5 year cycle and as a result, not be too surprised by next years theme, but I feel it's not official until it's announced. They could always change their minds, right?
Just in case you were wondering, I got jump off my chair excited. Well, I wasn't actually in my chair when I heard, but if I had been I would have jumped off.
First things first, just in case you don't recognize the adorable graphic of the Savior surrounded by children above, it was done by the talented artist from the website Melonheadz. She's got so many great graphics. If you haven't, you should really check it out.
Now, on to second things (and maybe a few more after that). I spent a while, maybe a few hours, online today checking out things here and there. Seeing as it was the theme in 2010, I figured I could find a few things and I did. I pinned a few to my pinterest board if you'd like to check it out.
I found enough fun ideas that I haven't stopped thinking about them all afternoon. I can feel all the ideas jumbling around and I keep running to my primary binder to write my own ideas down. I can already feel our birthday gift, spotlights, bulletin boards and an activity beginning to come together in my head.
I love planning. A lot.
I would love to hear ideas you come across as you start to think about how we can use the theme to touch and teach our primary children!!
Good luck and have FUN!!
