I found a couple of invitations that I liked, but wanted to incorporate CAIRNS. My 16 year old daughter designed exactly what I asked for. I have them printed on photo paper and snail mail them.

The purpose of this meeting is to help “children understand the
blessings of temple service,
and making and keeping sacred covenants.”
This meeting is for the children turning 12.However, the youth are a wonderful resource that can have a great impact on the children moving into Young Men and Young Women. Involving the youth in this meeting not only helps the children recognize and get to know the youth while preparing for the priesthood and for the temple; it helps the youth to teach what they believe by giving them the opportunity to contemplate their experiences and share what they know about the temple and the priesthood.
I felt prompted to wait until I saw the new Youth theme for 2023. The image is a cairn!
Theme: CAIRNSAt first, I was unimpressed. Then I did a little research. There is a lot you can do with CAIRNS!
I spoke with the YW president and with the priest quorum advisor about what topics were most important for the children coming into YM and YW, and also for the youth. And developed 4 talk/presentation ideas.
If you made it this far: Wow! you are thorough. Good for you. I hope you can use some of what I have posted. I wish you well in creating a special and memorable day for the upcoming Youth in your ward.
