Here are some activity ideas based around Back to
If you have others you would like to add,
them to me.
Back to School
Kickoff - choose activities from the list that you think your
young women could benefit from.
Back to School
- Mini class ideas for a Back to School night. Includes Good Study Habits and
Standing as a Witness.
Back to School Activity - I welcomed the girls to P.E. (Pray with Enthusiasm)
and introduced them to their new "coach" (our guest speaker) who spoke about
P.E. (pray with enthusiasm). We then sang--Did You Think to Pray- and then I
spoke to them about the back to school kit and went into a little more detail on
some of the items in the kit. I read the quote from Pres. Hinckley and then
explained the P.E. game we would be playing. They divided into pairs and we
tied their legs together and played kick ball. When
the they left they were given a "sack lunch" with a Capri Sun and a bag
of chips and a first aid kit. The first aid kit was in a Ziploc baggie with the
first aid kit list facing out and the quote and all of the objects behind that.
The girls seemed to enjoy! (Click

Be A Star - We are doing a mother-daughter
activity tomorrow with a back to school fashion show. We've been
talking about modesty in buying and wearing modest clothes for school.
So our theme is "Be a Star" and they will each get to model 2 outfits
for us. We will be playing a baby picture matching game to match mom's
and daughters as well as playing a getting to know the moms game. We
are having lunch and then a speaker speak to us about self-esteem.

School started today for our girls and on a whim I made a cute tag that said
"Hope your first day at school was "GRAND" and that you have a "BEARY" great
year. Lots of love and "SQUEEZES", signed by me. I put a small
100 Grand chocolate bar, a snack bag of Teddy Grahams, and a Kool-Aid squeeze
bottle in a lunch sack and stapled the tag on the outside of the bag. I
delivered them to the homes of all the girls so it was waiting for
them when they got home. I haven't heard from any of them yet but
hopefully they'll like it. (Idea by Debi in Washington)
