  1. What fun to open up the Friend this month and see those cute little faces! My boys did your mosaic activity last Gen Conf, and they LOVED it! We left it up for weeks. ;) Can't wait to do it again! Thanks for listing all these great ideas in one place for easy reference. I'll be coming back to it (often, I'm sure!)
