If you are looking for a fun primary birthday idea for the kids in your church, print out this Come Follow Me candy bar wrapper. The kids will love being reminded of Jesus and being wished a Happy Birthday with a chocolate treat.
This year, I've moved to a new home and have been asked to help with the kids in our Primary program.
The girls loved the candy bars, so we decided to try the same idea with the kids. After all, what kid doesn't like chocolate and candy?
Unlike the youth, the primary program doesn't have a specific theme this year. Only the same one that the entire Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints has--the Come Follow Me Book of Mormon program.
So for the primary birthday candy bars, I chose to go with the red, yellow, and blue colors of the primary.
The front of the candy bar wrapper has a clip art version of Jesus by Mujka with a pennant banner above. The theme "Come Follow Me" is in the center with blue stripes down both sides.
The back of the wrapper has colored stars by Basic Pixels and reads "Happy Birthday".
It's a simple primary birthday idea and one that's really easy to put together.
Simply right click on the candy bar wrapper to save it to your computer. Use your home printer to print at 100% (don't click to size) the wrapper. I like to use this photo paper since it's not heavy and has a nice glossy finish to it.
Cut along the edges of the rectangle to cut out.There is a white border outside the blue one just for design.
Use a regular size Hershey candy bar wrapper (doesn't matter the flavor, although most kids prefer the regular milk chocolate version.) I like to wrap my candy bars in this foil to make them pretty, but it's an extra step that you don't have to do. The kids won't even notice if you don't.
Lay the front of the candy bar wrapper on the front of the candy bar (over the Hershey label), centering the graphic. Wrap the top around and then repeat with the design on the back. Add a little bit of glue or tape to the wrapper to secure closed.
