As you ALL know, Young Women LOVE their phones, iPads, iTouches, MP3 players, etc... I stumbled across "dust plugs" on ebay one day and knew that I had to buy them. I didn't know how I would use them for young women's per say, but I knew the girls would OBSESS over these. I purchased a package of 21 on ebay* for $3.75 (note: you will have to bid on them, so the price could vary). They are universal and should fit in any headphone jack that you have. They have glittered bows, roses, daisies, reg bows...so you can get a pretty great variety.
I bought a package for me, and every time I pull my phone out at YW (and everywhere for that matter) I have someone comment on how amazing and cute it is with the common phrase "Oh, I want that!"
General Conference is coming up, so I thought since this is literally called a plug, I would play on words. And hopefully, each time they saw their plug they would remember the words of the Prophets and listen to the whispering of the Holy Ghost.
I printed on white card stock and made it look like an iPod with the poem in the middle and the cute plug on the upper hand corner.
Here's the poem I came up with:
“Plug” Into General Conference
In times of troubles and of tears
We don’t need to worry
We don’t need to fear.
A prophet’s voice will guide and direct
We need to listen
We need to connect.
“Block” out the interference that comes our way,
We will feel the Spirit
We won’t delay.
For the joy we find will not be bought,
It comes by listening and in thought.

* to find these on ebay, search for "bow dust plugs", or "flower dust plugs"... You will find them that way. They are usually sold in a 19 or 21 piece set and shipping is free. It can take 3-4 weeks to get (they come from China), so you want to plan ahead. Also, every time I have ordered one, I have always been given on extra plug as a free gift!
