Hang up scriptures around the camp about families, hang up sayings or lines of songs about families (e.g.--A family is forever, Love One Another, A Family that Prays Together is a Family that Stays Together, "No other success can compensate for failure in the home"--David O. McKay, Hang up The Family: A Proclamation to the World)

Decorate binders for personal history (use padding to make it puffy, pretty materials, lace, flowers, beads, hot glue gun)

Make heart shaped pillows out of assorted cloth for the girls' future homes

Make small quilts for a future baby

Make stationary and a matching address book (so the girls can keep in touch better with their family members)
