Baptism Towels

These are what I have been working on the past few days. They actually took quite a bit more work than I was expecting (I don't know why I expected them to be easy). But I am happy with them. They are nowhere near perfect, but the kids aren't going to care and that is who they are for. I made them for the kids in the primary class that I teach at church. I teach the 7 going on 8 year olds and it is a lot of fun. They are great kids! And so excited about baptism because this is their year! This Sunday the lesson is on baptism. So, I found the idea to make "Baptism Towels." They are just a white towel with a CTR emblem on them. And there is a poem that goes with them:

My Baptism Towel

This baptism towel is to help remind you

Of your baptism day all the years through

When you come out of the water all clean and pure

Dry off with this towel and you can be sure

That you are clean as this towel is white

And the Holy Ghost will be with you both day and night

For the Holy Ghost is your gift after the laying on of hands

And will be a comfort and a guide if you obey God's commands

This CTR emblem will help remind you to be strong

As you continue to learn right from wrong

When your towel becomes soiled, remember that we, too

May sometimes make mistakes and we've been taught just what to do

Just as you can wash your towel so it can again be clean

The wrongs you make can be washed away and never again be seen

Your Heavenly Father loves you, remember always to pray

And He will be beside you forever and a day.

If you are trying to think of a good baptism gift I would highly recommend it.
