With the beginning of a new year comes the planning and preparing of so many things in Primary! In my old stakes, the Baptism Preview was done on a stake level so we didn’t even think about it as a presidency until we realized that our parents and kids didn’t know what to expect. Previously, the Preview had not been done in our ward and we decided we needed to bring it back. Especially because our stake made some changes and now all baptisms are handled on a ward level.
We held our first one and it went off very well! We had some fun decorations that we are able to resuse for future previews. It’s so much fun to decorate because everything is so colorful! We loved the idea of the rainbow theme and that is how we planned.
We kept our invitations simple and it ties in perfectly with the program page. The simplicity makes it much easier and cheaper to print. When we print invitations and programs like this, we generally get them printed at a printing shop because they look better than printing at home and it’s cheaper in the long run!
I’m included the jpg and pdf files. You can easily add your own information in the blank spaces provided. The invitation could look something like this. I made the invitations as 5×7’s. It’s the best size for invites because you can get the information you need on it without feeling like everything is scrunched together. One download has them two to a page.
If you are using them for your own child’s baptism, you can download the printable without the “baptism preview” at the bottom.
The colors are so fun and pretty! There really is so much you can do with the rainbow theme.
Here’s the program. It’s similar but slightly different. It’s in an 8.5 by 11 format.
I’m going to be sharing all of the details of what we planned in the next week and the projects we put together for it. If you have any great ideas that you use in your ward, I’d love to hear and share it in the post too!
For now, here are the download files.
