It Does Not Matter How You Choose To Eat a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup FREE Printout

It Does Not Matter How You Choose To Eat a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup,
What Really Matter's Are The Choice's That You Make!

My kids showed me the cutest U-Tube Video about
"How General Authorities Eat Their Reese's Peanut Butter Cups":
I just thought it was so cute and a lot of fun to use with the youth, so I decided to make a little handout to use with the video.  Here they are below.  One is to use with the mini Peanut Butter Cup, and the other is to use with the normal sized Peanut Butter Cup.


To use the printout just click on the picture to make it large, then right click and save it into your pictures, or copy and paste it into you printing program.
Regular Peanut Butter Cup Version:
I printed it out on colored cardstock and then added the peanut butter cup to the center.



Mini Peanut Butter Cup Version:
I printed it out on colored cardstock and then added the peanut butter cup to the center.


 I wanted to emphasize making the right choice so 
I redid this for my seminary class.
Here are the printouts for the CTR Version:

Multiple printouts:




My son had brought home a written copy from his mission. 
Here it is below:
How General Authorities Eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup
(author unknown)

 Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I turned the peanut butter cup to properly take a bite and in doing so, I over-corrected. This resulted in me smearing chocolate on my upper lip. Had I been just one degree under what I calculated, I would have successfully enjoyed the Reeses without making a mess. Which brings me to a story about aviation…
 Dallin H. Oaks
The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup challenges us to consume. From the beginning there have been three steps in eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. First, remove the wrapper. This is best done quickly, by turning the cup over, grasping the outer fold and pulling away from the bottom. Second ?
 Joseph B. Wirthlin
When I was young I would sprint to the corner store, buy a Reese’s and run my hand through my hair before taking it down in one bite. These days I don’t sprint, and I have no hair, but the peanut butter cup remains.
 Richard G. Scott
If you have not eaten a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, I plead with you. Eat one now. Enjoy the chocolate, the peanut butter. Do not delay. If you have thought, “That’s not for me,” I plead with you to reconsider. Of all foods I treasure, this one was the first.

 Boyd K. Packer
In all my years, I have always eaten my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups the same way the established way we have been instructed to eat them. There is a far greater evil in this world, though those who believe they can eat their cups in a way unconventional to the time-honored manner. We must be true and faithful and eat our Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the customary and recognized approach as it has heretofore been established.

Thomas S. Monson
I remember I ate my first Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup when I was a tender lad of eight. My mother came up to me, and with a loving twinkle in her eye, asked, ‘Tommy, are you eating a Reese’s?’
And I would invariably smile up to her, ‘Yes, yes, I am.’
‘But Tommy, did you know that Sister Jensen next door hasn’t eaten a Reese’s Cup in years?’ My young mind thought upon the plight of my neighbor. Tears were shed. Hearts were gladdened. A cup was shared.

Heavenly father gave us many things to help us to be happy here on Earth - FREE printouts



As I was preparing my Sunbeam lesson https://www.lds.org/manual/primary-1/lesson-14?lang=eng   I realized that I might have a lot of extra time.  I was also having trouble finding pictures of animals and plants so I decided to make my own printout.  The lesson was on Adam and Eve and also on how heavenly father gave us many things to help us to be happy on Earth.  Here is what I came up with:

Plants and Animals Printout:
(just click on the picture to make it larger, then save it into your pictures or
 copy and paste it into your printing program)



First of all I made a two cardstock printouts of the handout above.  I cut out all of the pictures.  During my lesson I laid out all of the pictures upside-down.  Then the children took turns turning over the pictures.  I would have the child say what the animal or plant was and then we would discuss how that animal was helpful.  Then I would ask them to try to find the matching animal or plant and we would put them together.

Heavenly Father gave us many things 
(Adam and Eve) Printout:



When we were all done talking about the animals and plants, I then had them color the above handout.  The children chose from the cutouts which ones they wanted to add to their picture.  They would color the cutout and glue it to the picture.  When they were done they had a finished picture with many different things that help us to be happy on earth.

I realize that this could be used with other lessons, so I made a more generic version below.

Heavenly Father gave us many things printout 2:
The children loved the game and it helped to fill the extra time.  I thought that I would share it with you.  I have a few more links to the church website on some ideas for Adam and Eve:

Don't Be Popped by Surprise, Search The Scriptures Every Day! FREE printout to use Pop Rocks candy

Here is a printout to use with Pop Rocks candy to remind kids to read their scriptures every day.  I have three versions, a single version, a page with two printouts, or a page with four printouts per page.  To use them just click on them to make them large.  Then right click to save it into your pictures, or copy and paste it into your printing program.  You can resize it to the size that you need.

 
On the printout with four per page, I found a mini pop rocks candy at the dollar store that fit into the smaller printout. 

If you want to use the large pop rocks you need to use the printout with two printouts per page, then size it to a full piece of paper.

Choose Faith Printout - Quote by Bishop Richard C. Edgley

Sometimes I substitute for seminary and as I was preparing my lesson for 3 Nephi 1 (https://www.lds.org/manual/book-of-mormon-seminary-teacher-manual-2013/3-nephi/lesson-116?lang=eng) I read this quote by Bishop Richard C. Edgley.  I just loved it and wanted to give the students a copy that they could keep for their scriptures or in their notebooks so I made this printable version.  I thought others might be able to use it so I am posting it on my blog.  To use it just click on the picture to make it larger, then right click your mouse and save it into your pictures or copy and paste it into your printing program.  You can resize it to the size that you need.  I also have a version to print 4 per page that you can use below:
