Being a high Gold, I got right to work on brainstorming and organizing my activities as soon as I got home. I decided on doing one main theme every month and then featuring a new book every week based on that theme. I've had some great responses from both my VIP Group members and fellow Uzzie Buddies about making my VIP Group more activity based. This turned out to be the fuel I needed to push through a very crazy summer. My husband started a new business over the summer, and with my own responsibilities and helping him out, plus being a busy mama, I was struggling with keeping life balanced. I wanted to make sure I could still keep up with everything without falling behind. These activities turned out to be the perfect way to stay in touch with the ladies in my VIP Group AND spend quality time with my family at the same time! Win/Win!
July means sparklers, road trips, and family BBQ's! To go along with all the fun and excitement, I decided to make July 'Exploring the World' month in my VIP Group! I knew a lot of people in my VIP Group and my team were going on some fun family vacations to new places they had never been, and my goal for this was to encourage excitement in not only visiting new places but learning about the culture of the place they were visiting. I also incorporated an activity about coming home, and appreciating the area in which we live.
I had SO much fun with this theme, and I hope you all enjoy it!
- Fourth of July - Shine a Light: Wonders of the USA
- Maps - Lift-the-Flap Picture Atlas
- Venecian Masks - Costumes of the World Sticker Dolly Dressing
- Backyard Campout - The Outdoor Book
I know many of us are looking for constantly on the lookout to make our VIP Groups more fun for our customers, so I decided to share my activities and graphics with you! My hope is that these will inspire you all to find new ways to make the books come alive for your family and your customers. You are welcome to use anything I share here, all I ask is that you tweak it to put some YOU in it and to use your own original photos.
