{Personal Progress} YW Personal Progress Olympics Game Night

Are you ready for a fun Personal Progress Olympics Game Night? Today I am sharing some fun game ideas as well as some great printables to help you plan and execute this great Personal Progress activity.

Personal Progress Olympics Game Night.

Before your activity you will want to let the girls know about the upcoming activity. You can do this by announcing the activity or you can pass out some invitations. I have created some invites that you are welcome to use (below).

When we did this, I passed out the invites the Sunday before. I also handed out these adorable torch treats that were filled gold candy, to help remind them to ‘GO for the GOLD!’

I just had the date and time of the activity.
Now let’s talk about the activity!

Personal Progress Olympics Game Night

We held our Personal Progress in February, so I knew I needed to have some fun “winter games” planned for the girls to do. If you did this during the summer just find some fun “summer games” to use. Here are a few winter games that I found online:

Build a Snowman: 2 people per team with one roll of toilet paper. One person holds the roll, while the other spins and wraps themselves in the toilet paper. They have 1 minute to unroll the entire roll of toilet paper. I should’ve had black pieces of paper for coal and a scarf and hat for the girls to decorate their snowmen…maybe next time. 🙂

Ice Melt: We didn’t do this, but I wanted to. Give each girl a piece of ice and have them melt it within one minute. They can do anything they choose to melt the piece of ice.

YW Scattergories: I came up with 2 lists for YW Scattergories. Just print out my lists HERE to have your own game of Scattergories.

Cookie Stack: Give each girl 8 Oreos {one for each value} and have them try to stack them on their foreheads without them falling. They have 1 minute to accomplish this.

Here are some other great game ideas that you could use:
Snowflake Race: Give the girls pieces of paper or even coffee filters. Give them an amount of time and have them race to see who can create the most snowflakes.

Snowball Throw: Create a snowball out of crumpled up paper or socks and have the girls throw them to see how far they can throw. Or you could even hang a hula hoop or a poster-board with a hole and have them throw the snowball through the hole.

.

Prizes!

Because this is a Personal Progress activity I needed to incorporate Personal Progress, right? I figured the prizes/medals would be a great way to do that.

I read through the Personal Progress booklet and picked out 8 value experiences. Then I went to the Distribution Center & Target and picked up any supplies that the girls needed for those 8 value experiences.

 I picked up things like notebooks, pencils, scripture markers, Conference Ensign, New Era, For the Strength of Youth pamphlet, a Book of Mormon, etc. Some of the experiences asked to read the Proclamation. I wanted to give the girls a small Proclamation, but couldn’t find any, so I created my own. I have them for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

I placed the supplies in some cute bags or wrapped them in clear cellophane. I had a tag with the value that prize was for. Inside was also a card with the experience number and information.
Here’s an example of one of the cards that I used for the prizes:

 
 
For this prize I had a small Proclamation, a scripture marker, and a “For the Strength of Youth” pamphlet. The only thing that the winner needed to pass off this experience would be their scriptures.
I placed the prizes, along with the above card, inside a cute bag and then added my ‘Virtue’ tag, so the girls would know that that prize was for a ‘Virtue’ experience. The girls had a good time and I hope they’re using their prizes to pass off some more experiences.
At the end I had chips, chocolate chip cookies, and Root Beer for them to enjoy. I told them the treats were for them to remember to
“Chip away at their Personal Progress, and to remember we’re Rooting for them.”

    This is awesome! I am totally using it for our upcoming activity. Also, I didnt see a prize for Good Works?

    1. Thanks Krystal! I think I just read through the booklet and picked several different value experiences that they could work on. I didn’t pick one from each value. I can try and create some more and post them when I’m done. Thanks!

    Hello so did you give the prizes to each girl for each game?

    1. Hi Heather! I think I had 1-2 prizes for each game. We don’t have many girls, so I didn’t need too many. 🙂

      1. Heather

        So you only did prizes for the actual winner or two of the game not for each girl? We have 30 girls total and didn’t want to give prizes for each girl.
