I now have a new calling in my ward – the Activity Day Girls leader. We had our first activity last night. And while I won’t say that it was perfect – I think it did go very well and we all had a nice time.
Instead of speed dating – we did a little speed friendshiping. We had separate tables set up so that the girls (and leaders too) were divided up into groups of two or three. On each table was a bowl with questions in it like, “What is you favorite book?”, “If you could go any place in the world, where would you go?”, “Who is your favorite prophet?”, “When I grow up, I want to be ______?”, “If I had the time to learn a new talent, what would it be?” and so on. After each question we each moved to a different seat to ask a question of the new person sitting in front of us.
It was a fun activity to let us all get to know each other a little bit better. Then we planned out activities that they would like to do for the rest of the year. They were awesome at coming up with ideas – we have a great few months ahead of us!
Don’t you love my favorite three activity day girls over on the left? Since we were taking a picture – they absolutely felt the need to jump in there too :)
