Need a way to cheer up a friend or family member? Looking for a way to help your children serve during the current crisis? Today, I’m giving away a fun project you can use to accomplish both tasks: a coloring-book style “Be of Good Cheer” banner.
Print, color and assemble this cute printable banner for a friend, family member or neighbor. (You can leave it on their doorstep or mail it.) Or, hang it in your home or child’s bedroom. Another option is to print or send the banner uncolored to the children in your Primary class, Young Women or Sunday School class. They can color the banner as an at-home activity.
This banner download was recently added to my Etsy shop, but I think it would serve a better purpose if I shared it freely with you. Please feel free to share this downlaod with friends and family. A link up to my blog or Etsy shop would be appreciated, but is definitely not required 🙂 You can find the download link at the bottom of this post.
With 22 different flags, including six with fun coloring designs, five with uplifting thoughts and eleven with the words/letters for “Be of Good Cheer,” your family or children can work togther to create something cheerful and uplifting. Featuring adorable hand-drawn artwork with the theme, “Be of Good Cheer (D&C 68:6),” each flag in this banner is approximately 5×7 inches in size.
When you download this banner, you’ll receive a high-quality printable PDF file with eleven pages, two flags per page. Simply print on card stock, cut out each flag and color with colored pencils, markers, crayons or watercolors. Then, string the flags together to make a banner. You can punch holes in flag corners and thread string/ribbon through the holes, or stitch the flags to the ribbon/string using a wide zig-zag stitch.
This banner comes with the following flags:
• 11 Flags for The Words/Letters for “Be of Good Cheer” (Be, Of, G, O, O, D, C, H, E, E, R)
• 6 Flags with Hand-drawn Artwork for Coloring (Hot Air Balloon, Bunting Birds, Ribbon Banners, Cloudy Sky, Kite, Tree)
• 5 Flags with Uplifting Thoughts (Happy Day, You Are Loved, I Am a Child of God, Let the Sunshine In, Chin Up Buttercup)
