When girls advance into a new Activity Day's group, or any group for that matter, I believe it always presents a good time to re-enforce how much a girl is loved.  It's an opportunity to add a little extra voice as a leader to say you are loved, we know who you are, and we are excited to have you join us!

I was at the local gas station and came across a darling mini Gum Ball Machine for $1 in the Candy isle.  I thought it would be a perfect little token to get for the girls when they come in to our group.  Something that is inexpensive and easy to grab and put a cute printable with.  

We would deliver them to their house.  Even if it meant dropping it off on the doorstep with a quick text to the Mom to let her know it is there for her child to look for.  The girls loved them!

I don't have any pictures of my actual handout, but here is the darling printable I created.  If you would like to use it for yourself, just right click on it and copy.  Then paste in a word document or on your desktop or smart phone and print.  Easy Peasy!

3-9-2017 *UPDATE to original post... because this has been such a popular post AND I unfortunately spelled a word wrong on the original printable, I have re-designed it in 3 different ways.  I have also taken off the words Activity Days, so these printables can be utilized for other groups and classes as well.  Think- welcome to drama club- a sports team, dance class, or even preschool!

I have also added a few stock photos of what the candy filled bubblegum machines look like.  I have also seen them at various dollar stores.  If you choose not to buy a gumball machine or can't find them, you can always purchase some fun colored gumballs and package them in a cello baggie tied with bakers twine, ribbon or yarn- or put them in a clear tube.  SO cute! 

Thanks for stopping by...Here's hoping you have a BALL today! ;0)
