Remembering to Say Thank You

Many people show their love for you by serving you. Your parents, grandparents, neighbors, Primary leaders and teachers, and the bishop or branch president spend many hours doing things for you. Think about the people who help you, then write a list of their names. Remembering to thank these people is important and will mean a lot to each of them. Follow the instructions below to make thank-you cards to give to those who have helped you.

For each card, you will need: scissors, one 8 1/2″ x 11″ (22 cm x 28 cm) piece of paper (white or colored), glue, and a pen.

  1. Carefully open the staples, remove pages 24–25, and close the staples. Cut out around the edges of the card illustrations.

  2. Fold each piece of paper in half and then in half again to form a card.

  3. Glue an illustration on the front of the folded card. Write a personal message inside the card and sign it.

  4. Draw your own illustrations if more are needed.
