Visiting Teaching Ideas


So, I love Visiting Teaching. I get to make some really good friends, which I may never have made if I hadn't been assigned as their Visiting Teacher.
Here are some ideas I found which could help you. Just ideas I found online.
1. You and your companion can have a dinner party and invite your VTees. Make it a potluck and get your VTees to each bring a side dish. You can make the main dish and your companion can make a dessert. This is a fun way to get to know each other and have fun. You can do it with or without your spouses.
2. Baskin-Robbins Run. Everybody likes ice cream, right? So why not make it a visiting teaching idea.You and your companion can invite one or all of your VTees to an ice cream parlor and eat and have a good chat. Sometimes all your VTees need is an hour with fattening ice cream and away from screaming kids!
3. Service Project. Get to know your sisters on the best possible terms--Serve with them. Get involved in a project for the community or in your ward. This will not only help you and your sisters grow closer together, but you're also helping others.
4. Serve your Sisters. Everyone is so busy these days. Instead of taking away part of their day by having them stop to talk to you, help them out with their responsibilites. Clean their bathroom, wash their dishes, help them cut up watermelon for a baby shower. Whatever you can do to help them is key.
5. Kidnap their Children. No really. Sometimes even great parents need a break---and a date! Offer to take your visiting teachees kids so that they can spend some time together.
6. Share your talents. Maybe you're a great singer, dancer, butcher, baker, candlestick maker? Offer to teach your visiting teachees one of your talents.
7. Make your visiting teachees some "Happy Pills." (These are not really pharmacetuals, but M&Ms. Pick out all of the green M&Ms (or blue, or yellow, get the picture) and put them in a jar. Make a cute label out of decorative paper that says "Happy Pills." Tell your visiting teachees that you're prescribing them some Happy Pills and they can have them anytime they need them. (Hey, if anything else, it's just another reason to have a sugar-rush M&M!) ***Be careful who you give this to. Make sure the person will see the humor in this.
8. Make VT magnets. Make sure your visiting teachees have all your contact information, like your name, numbers, email, etc. Make them a magnet with all the information on it. Glue it to a piece of decorative scrapbook paper, and then glue it to a piece of cardstock. Stick a magnet on the back and there you have it--cute visiting teaching magnets.

Enjoy and I hope this helps you with some of your own Visiting Teaching.
