My Relief Society president knows me well. She asked me to make the ward Christmas party invite. She gave me two themes "Joy to the World" and "something that looks like chalkboard" and if it wasn't too much trouble, could I make two?
Done and done.
First I headed over to Walmart and picked up two black, thick poster boards and a box of chalk. I was worried the chalk would smear if little fingers touched it, so I should buy something more permanent, but the chalk worked perfectly on the board and didn't move at all.
Then I headed over to Pinterest for some inspiration.
I decided to incorporate ideas from these three chalkboards.
A couple weeks ago I was in charge of planning a get to know you game for the youth in our ward. It was for our older girls (12-18) to get to know the younger girls (8 - 12). I thought and thought about what game would be fun... suddenly I thought about the really fun game Loaded Questions.
My sister in law had brought it for us to play this summer when our big family was all together. But she just only brought the cards (not the game board). So, I suppose I've never technically played the correct game, since I've never done the board.
But the questions were so fun and the answers were so hilarious that I thought this would be the perfect Get to Know you activity.
I did a little searching online to get the exact game play, found a couple questions, wrote all the others, and before I knew it I had the game all ready.
The game that night was So much fun! We had a really big group so we ended up dividing up into two groups. My favorite answer from the girls was to the questions, "Where is your ideal place to be proposed to?" Her answer (8 year old), "At prom in college." Ha, ha!!
