The first time I was a Primary president, it was in a small Ward in a tiny town in Oregon with a little Primary of about 40 children. I had one counselor and a secretary who seldom if ever showed up, so my other counselor and myself were often stuck without any planned sharing time. We also had a few teachers who would just not show up without notice.
The first time I was a Primary president, my counselors and I divvied up bulletin board responsibilities. I did what I usually do, which is gather ideas and materials for the ones I was going to be responsible for. Then I went hog-wild and made four books of stuff to put on bulletin boards, one for each season of the year. I got visuals for things having to do with each season and holidays, and added in Church history dates. I actually used the books when I did the bulletin boards. My favorite things are the borders – those borders can be expensive at the store, and they’re more often than not unattractive. Also, have you ever tried to find some to fit your theme? You’re lucky to find a color you like. What I’m going to do is to post a bulletin board book for FREEdownload for each season. Here’s the one for Spring! Look for the others throughout the year!
