2 Paint individual flower stems onto the picture-side of the board. Add leaves to the stems. Paint a family member's name on one of the leaves on each of the stems. Paint a big yellow sun in upper corner of picture.

3 Paint the family name across the middle of the picture. If your last name is Jones, it would read, "Jones Family Home Evening." Let board dry completely.

4 Colour wooden flowers in various acrylic paint shades. Let dry completely. Write the following on each flower with black sharpie marker: prayer, scripture, lesson, songs, activity, treat. Add more according to the needs of your family.

5 Super-glue magnets onto backs of wooden flowers. Let glue dry and set completely. Place family home evening assignment flowers on the stems of corresponding family members names. Rotate flowers weekly.

Tips and warnings

You may paint the assignments on the stem leaves and glue family members' pictures onto the wooden flowers, depending on the ages of your young children.
