ideas for Boys
- Many of my best ideas for
activities have come from library books. Look for books on children's parties,
or check the juvenile book section for various topics like crafts, magic, etc.
Sometimes I just go and wander up and down the isles in a section that looks
promising. Other great sources for ideas are magazines. "Pack
'o Fun" magazine is one of my favorites. It
is geared for children and often to groups of children. Also "The Friend" has
lots of great ideas including games. Another good resource for ideas is the Girl
Scout Handbook, which can be purchased at the local Girl Scout Council. (Credit

I give each girl a gift when they turn twelve and leave
the program. It could easily be a birthday gift, as well. I buy an inexpensive
small photo album. I have found great ones at Ross. They are just the kind the
girls love...with faux fur and things like "princess' or "angel" on the front.
They are about $3.99 each. You could probably find them at a dollar store as
well. I make sure I take lots of photos of our Activity Days activities. I
get double prints or scan them and put photos of them in their books! It makes a
nice keepsake of their Activity Days and their families love to see the
activities we have done throughout the years.

I send them a homemade card for their birthdays and I try
to acknowledge them at church the week of their birthday and tell them happy
We make a special tiny birthday cake for each girl when
it's their birthday. We write on it "Happy Birthday Emily" and they got to
wear a little crown as they were the "princess for a day." The girls really
looked forward to getting their very own little cake. (Mary Tingey)

Learning and Living the Gospel
Liken living the gospel to taking a spelling test. Usually
the teacher gives us the words beforehand and helps us learn to spell the words
by giving us worksheets or drills. A teacher truly wants his or her students to
learn to spell the words and to do well on the test. Similarly, Heavenly Father
wants us to do well on our test here on earth. He wants us to live worthy to
return to Him. Just as the teacher gives us the words beforehand, Heavenly
Father has told us the things that we need to do to enable us to live with Him.
He helps us along the way. [Idea taken from the

I write notes to my girls about once a month. Just
something simple -- thanks for helping to clean up, I appreciate your kindness
to a younger child, I noticed that you were sitting reverently at church, etc.
If a girl has a birthday coming up, I'll write them a special birthday card and
send it. They LOVE getting mail!

I have enjoyed
the following schedule with my Activity Day girls. Most activity days I
schedule for 1 hour and 15 minutes. When they arrive at my house I have them
work on Cross stitch or needlepoint projects for the first 10-15 minutes to
allow all of the girls to get there. We then say our opening prayer and work on
memorizing one of the articles of faith for 5-10 minutes. We then do our
scheduled activity. We then spend the last 5-10 minutes writing in our
journals. Shared by Jessica Williams / ga09242007

LDS Activity Days
To welcome new girls coming into Activity Day
with me I deliver a plain notebook (which I buy when they are on sale for
10 cents each) to them on their birthday. I have a note taped to the
front to welcome them to my Activity Day group and ask them to please have
the front decorated by the time they come to our first scheduled Activity
Day. We then use the notebooks for journals. (by Jessica Williams /
Welcome Cans - An idea that I have, for welcoming new girls is to visit their
house when they turn eight. I am making cans (soup or vegetable) that are
covered really cute with embellishments and paper. I am tying the cans to helium
balloons and filling them with a few treats, a scripture pencil, articles of
faith bookmark, birthday card and the faith in God booklet. This is a
happy birthday and welcome to activity days all in one! (Idea by Darlene)
Welcome to the Activity Day Program! - they might feel more welcomed if something special is done
just for them. A cute basket or packet made for her might be just the thing.
Line basket with a cute fabric and add (Idea taken from Women's Conference):
-Activity Days booklet
-Upcoming Activity Days events
-Leaders names and phone numbers
-Welcoming letter from leader
-Scripture stickers. A lot of girls get new scriptures for their
eighth birthday - they might
be a fun new thing
-Favorite candy of new girl
-Small gift and letter from
parent (may be a miniature Primary Song Book or Hymn Book)
-Article of Faith card
