We had personal progress interviews last month, which prompted this activity. We've had lots of cute new Beehives join our ranks lately, so it seemed a good time to crank out a few value experiences in one night.
Here was the invite, with a small package of Skittles stapled to the back:
We had three rotations, so every girl went to each 20-minute class.
During the personal progress interviews, the one thing I heard over and over again from the young women is how difficult it is to start a two or three-week value experience and remember to keep it going. So, for FAITH #1, here's what I came up with:
I got a pillowcase for each girl, then used iron-ons to create a calendar-like thing.
At the activity, each girl got to decorate their pillowcase (here's a picture of mine--and yes, I realize faith #1 requires THREE weeks of personal prayer, not two. Good thing I figured it out before I made the rest of the pillowcases!)
The next class in the rotation was DIVINE NATURE #4. Our Elders Quorum president came and taught them how to memorize the sacrament prayers. He offered them a reward if the girls could recite the prayers by Sunday. And as long as they're doing DIVINE NATURE #4, they may as well do FAITH #4.
Our last class was INDIVIDUAL WORTH #4. The great thing about this class is the girls could finish it in one night. The teacher gave them a questionnaire with these questions:
What college do I want to go to?
What major do I want to have?
Where would I like to serve a mission?
What temple would I like to be married in?
What traits would I like in my husband? (physical, spiritual, personality)
How many children would I like to have?
What kind of mother do I plan on being?
Where would I like to travel with my family?
What fun things would I like to do with my family?
What kind of wife do I want to be?
Where do I want to raise my family?
What kind of home would I like?
How will I teach my children about my Savior, Jesus Christ?
How will I let them know that they are a Child of God?
Then we served rainbow cupcakes, recipe over at thefrugalgirls.com. You can find the recipe here.
Looking forward to Taste the Rainbow part 2, next month.
