For a recent Beehive Class lesson, I taught our girls from YW Manual 1, Lesson 26: Testimony. To go along with this lesson, I made my own poster (as directed in the lesson plan) and a seed packet handout to give the girls. Both projects helped to reinforce the idea that a testimony starts small and grows bigger as you nourish it, just like a seed (See Alma 32:28).
To go with the seed packet, I created some 3-by-4-inch blank cards from card stock and gave two to each girl. On one card, I had them write “Things I Want to Gain a Testimony About” and on the other “Things I Believe.” Then, each girl was encouraged to jot down a few things on each card and place the completed cards in the seed packet. I explained that the way to grow their testimonies was to continue learning about those things they already had a testimony about and to “experiment upon the word” to develop testimonies of the things they wanted to know. I encouraged each of them to pull out the cards occasionally to update their lists as their testimonies grew.
You can use my seed packet handout in a similar way or fill it with seeds or candy.
