I am a member of this church. and i’m in the primary (ages 3-12) and this year’s themed is CHOOSE the RIGHT. (which is a great theme if you are a member or not…i mean you don’t tell your kids to choose wrong before they leave their house am i right or am i right?)
and we were thinking about giving each kid a CTR ring
(stands for choose the right if you are having a slow day) (this green one is the one i grew up with…but they have gotten all cute and fancy now…
but most kids have them (my daughter has two) so we decided to do ctr blocks….
i gave my facebook family a sneak peak of colorful goodness:
which just started as a bunch of blocks…(my sister in law was building a house and they had huge piles of leftover scraps! and they were just going to throw them away..needless to say, i saved them)
and cut them out
gave it a nice rub and peeled it off. (so cheap alert: i reuse transfer tape. (especially with big letters) i got to reuse it about 4 times before it didn’t work so great.
(i distressed the sides before i stuck the vinyl on)
on a related/random sidenote: i found this cute etsy shop
When we built our house–Mike went out and burned the pile of scraps~I about died!! When we built the chicken coop last summer, he piled up all the "scraps" by the fire pit and I went and piled them all in the garage in a nice corner–just for things like this!! (he thinks its a waste!) I have about 30 or so!! If you need anymore…. 🙂
Great minds think alike! I made basically the same thing for our primary kids, but ours say "CTR" big and underneath in smaller letters "Choose the Right". I love all of the colors you picked. I love your blog!

Oh my, these are adorable! SO much better then those little green CTR rings, that not only turn little fingers green, but get lost and sucked into the vacuum.
They turned out great! I love them all together too!! Ha!
Ooo…I want to make these with my Activity Day girls!
Way to be an awesome missionary 🙂 I love the signs and btw, hello from Eastern Idaho! I'm just outside of Ririe (where??)

That's a fun alternative to giving a CTR ring. Especially for the older kids.
These are so cute.. I love them!
