Careers Shout Out

Aren't these darling?  I love the cute figures representing 31 different occupations and community helpers.  (Okay -- I have to confess, an astronaut may not be a "community helper" but she was just too cute not to include.)

My three year old eyes have lit up as she's discovered the many people who help us each day and what their "jobs" are called.  My college-bound daughter has been trying to decide what to major in.  Amazingly, Career Shout Out has been a great discussion starting point for both.  I love how "play" stimulates the mind.

Articles of Faith Shout Out

Shout out for the Articles of Faith!  They were published 175 years ago on March 1, 1842.  The Articles of Faith are 13 declarations of beliefs Joseph Smith wrote in a newspaper to explain the basic tenants of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

To celebrate this anniversary, I've created Articles of Faith Shout Out.  There are 31 images which correspond with different Articles of Faith.  For example, a silhouette of a father and son with the number "1" reminds me of the first Article of Faith:  "We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost."  The visual clues for each of the Articles of Faith will help kids remember which is which.

To play, each player takes a card and compares their card to the center pile.  You race to find the one, ways to play"
and only one match, on your card and Shout Out.  The first one to find the match takes the card.  Play continues until all the cards are taken.  There are also variations to play alone or in large groups (up to 31 players).  See: "

Shout Out is perfect to play at home during family home evening or on Sundays, or to play at church to introduce the Articles of Faith or to fill remaining lesson time.

I'm in charge of Singing Time.  I will have an Article of Faith Sunday where I hand out all of the cards.  Then I will have the kids compare their card to the person next to them to find the match.  We will sing the Article of Faith that is the match.  (If you are also in charge of Singing Time, check out Singing Time Shout Out -- it has 31+ no-prep ways to sing and repeat songs.  I play about once a month and the kids always beg to play longer.)  You can review all of the Articles of Faith at home or church the same way ... whatever match you find, you repeat the Article of Faith.

Earth Day Shout Out

Every day should be Earth Day (but FYI, the official date is April 22).  We all have a special responsibility to the Earth, to each other and to the future to care for and use its resources wisely.

With Earth Day Shout Out, there are 31 images that serve as reminders and talking points of what we can do to help conserve and preserve the environment.  From LED and halogen light bulbs, to turning off water while brushing teeth, to walking and biking instead of driving, there are so many different ways we can make small changes in our lives to help.  After playing Shout Out, your kids will naturally brainstorm and think of many different ways to help.

In addition, Earth Day Shout Out provides topics of discussion like energy sources - windmills, nuclear, electrical, coal - and global warming.  A tiger represents the many endangered species across the world.

To play, each person races to find the one, and only one match, on the center pile.  Whoever finds their match first, shouts out.  They take the card and then race to find the next match.  Best of all, Shout Out can be reused over and over again.  If the game ever becomes to worn to play again, you can recycle :)

Shout Out also comes with printable boxes to keep your cards organized.  You can also use the boxes to store trinkets, stickers or awards to give out on Earth Day, or next time you discuss conservation.

(FYI - there are two backing and box options.  One says "Earth Day Shout Out" and the other says "Environmental Science Shout Out."_

Service Shout Out

Did you know that this week is Kindness Week with February 17th being Kindness Day?  I'd never heard of it before, but my kids are bringing things home from school and I think it is an AWESOME idea!  I love looking for ways to help and serve others.
I think kids naturally want to help others, but sometimes they feel limited on what they can do or they are stymied on who they can serve.  Service/Kindness Shout Out can help stimulate ideas while you play.  Each deck has 31 ideas of how to serve, all through pictures (so even non-readers can play).  To play, race to find the one, and only one match, on each card.  When you're done playing, you'll be ready to go and do some good in the world today!
As an alternative, you can hand one card to a child and have them choose what they want to do on it.
FYI -  There are two backing options:  "Service Shout Out" or "Kindness Shout Out".  The printable storage boxes also come with both titles.  So, call it whichever you want.

To download, print and play Service Shout Out today:
On Etsy: Service Shout Out
On Teachers Pay Teachers: Service Shout Out

I think character education is so important to our children, that I've also created a FREEBIE mini-Service game.  It only has 13 ideas and cards, but is the perfect size to print out and send home with children.  While printing in color is more fun, for large classes, you can also print in black and white.  Students can cut out their own games in circle or square shapes.

Download the FREEBIE mini-Service Shout Out Game. 

I'd appreciate it if you PIN or Share these games on Social Media.  Thank you.

LIGHT the WORLD

Have you seen this new #LIGHTtheWORLD video?  I love it!! It encourages us to serve as Christ served for the 25 days until Christmas.  It parallels the great acts of love and service Jesus performed with small acts of service we can give to those around us.

I can't wait to introduce this to my kids and the Cub Scouts that I work with.  Daily service will truly bring the Spirit of Christ into the season.

In order to help my kids, Cub Scouts and myself, I created a couple things:  Service Shout Out which illustrates 11 different ways to offer service and "LIGHT the WORLD" gift boxes, to add small gifts, trinkets or candies.  Each of these are FREE.  I hope that you can use them in your homes, classrooms and churches too.  Wouldn't it be amazing if this year we truly light the world by bringing hope and light to one person at a time with our service?


Service Shout Out can be played normally by racing to find your match and shouting out as you find it.  But it can also be used to prompt service ideas.  Choose a card and do one of the four illustrations today. (example: yardwork, cleaning, bake and give cookies or raise and donate money).  OR Choose two cards, find the one match between them and make that your focus of service today.

LIGHT the WORLD printable Gift Boxes are perfect for gifting small candies, stickers, trinkets, pictures or more this month.  You can also place the Service Shout Out cards in the Light the World boxes to tie service and this initiative together.

DOWNLOAD all games and boxes from my FREEBIES page.


Please Pin and share these downloads with others!

For more service ideas and videos, see www.Mormon.org

For more Shout Out Games, visit Rise and Shout on Etsy or Teachers Pay Teachers.  Shout Out games come in 40+ themes including holidays (Christmas, Nativity), learning (abc's, numbers), bilingual practice (medical, shapes & colors), religious (LDS, Symbols of Christ) and more.


The Red Headed Hostess has a collection of ideas and printables from many different bloggers to help with #LIGHTtheWORLD.  Thank you for spotlighting Service Shout Out.
