Have your YW been busy working on Personal Progress this summer?
Do you need a fun mutual idea to reward your girls?
At the beginning of summer I had a Personal Progress Ice Cream party for the YW in my ward. It was fun and delicious! And I was able to catch up on where all the girls were and what they had passed off.
For the activity I thought it would be fun to have a Personal Progress Ice Cream Bar. To do this I thought of an ice cream topping for each value:
Faith (white): Whipped Cream
Divine Nature (blue): Blueberries
Individual Worth (red): Strawberries or Strawberry Syrup
Knowledge (green): M&M’s
Choice & Accountability (orange): crushed Butterfinger candy bars
Good Works (yellow): Bananas
Integrity (purple): Purple Sprinkles
Virtue (gold): Gold wrapped Reese’s PB Cups
The Sunday before the party I handed each of them an invitation and told them in order to get a bowl for their ice cream they had to bring their Personal Progress booklets. 🙂
The Night of the Party!
On a table at the front of the room I set up our toppings. I created some topping signs to place by each topping, so the girls knew which topping was for each value. Here’s an peek at what they look like:
All flower embellishments came from Shabby Princess & Sahlin Studio.
I just printed my cards out and folded in half. Then I just placed each card beside each ‘Value Topping.’
To begin I asked the girls who remembered to bring their booklets. Most of the girls brought them, yay! The girls that brought them received a waffle bowl for remembering their booklets, the rest of the girls received styrofoam bowls.
I then told the girls that they could only choose toppings from the values that they had completed an experience/project from (this is where their booklets come in handy).
I also had a game for the girls.
Personal Progress BINGO
This was their BINGO board.
I gave each girl a board and then told them the first 3 to get a BINGO won a prize. They had to read the card and use their booklets to figure out what they have done for Personal Progress.
They were so excited about the game. The winners won a gift certificate to a local Ice cream shop, I also thought of Ice cream flavored gum as a prize as well.
As the girls ate their ice cream and visited I interviewed the girls to see how they were doing with Personal Progress.
Overall it was a great night. I was able to check on what the girls had accomplished over the last few months and the girls were excited to reward themselves for their hard work.
Today I am sharing my BINGO Cards (like the one above & blank as well) with all of you as well as my Ice Cream Topping labels. Just click the links below:
I would love to hear how your own Personal Progress Ice Cream Party goes if you decide to have one.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
