Last Wednesday we had our Personal Progress ‘Ketchup Night’ for mutual.
Since I just got called as our ward’s Personal Progress Advisor I wanted to have an activity and talk to the girls about Personal Progress and see where they were at.
I saw a great idea for a ‘Ketchup Night
{original idea found here}
so that’s what we did.
We started out the night with ‘Ketchup’. I brought the girls French fries & tater tots to enjoy as we discussed Personal Progress.
I also brought some A&W Root Beer for all of us to enjoy. But I had a reason for the A&W.
I used the A&W to represent:
Always Work on your Personal Progress.
I originally saw Marci’s Root Beer tag that she used for a ‘Back to School’ treat for her girls and loved it!
So when I was planning our ‘Ketchup’ activity I decided to use the same idea, but changed it up just a bit.

I attached the handout to each bottle for the girls to keep as a reminder to Always Work on their Personal Progress.
 
I included a great quote from Ezra Taft Benson on the handout.
Everyone enjoyed the yummy food, and I was able to get caught up with where the girls are with their Personal Progress.
Personal Progress Reward
I also had a little reward for the girls. The Sunday before, I gave the girls a challenge to pass off at least one Personal Progress Experience. For those that completed one {or more} experience I gave them a pack of gum.
 
I wrapped some cute scrapbook paper around each pack of gum and tied some curly ribbon around it.

Then I attached a little tag on each pack of gum that said:
Thanks for ‘CHEWSING’ to do your Personal Progress.
The girls loved them.
After we ate and discussed Personal Progress we played a couple games.
I think the night went really well. I think any activity that involves food counts as a success. 🙂

 Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

    I really like the root beer tag that you made about personal progress. I am having interviews with my young women and I think that would be a fun thing to leave with them. I didn’t see a way to print your tag out, only the one that Marci did. Could you please let me know if there is a way to get a copy of yours?

    Thanks so much, Cheryl
