This activity is a darling spin-off of the “It’s in the Bag” activity found here. Simple. Meaningful. Celebrates the girls. My three favorite qualifications for a great activity.
You’ll notice on this invitation that the girls were asked to bring 3 items to share what they have been working on in the three Faith in God areas. I was so touched and impressed by the thoughtfulness and preparedness of these girls when they shared their items. Many of them had written their experiences down beforehand and all of them shared WHY they brought each item. I learned a lot about these girls – especially that they are working toward all of the right things and wanting to choose the right.
WELCOME: The activity started out with a short message from their leader about the strength of these girls and their potential.
SHARING: Each girl shared their three items and many of them bore testimony of what they believe.
Favorite Quote after sharing an Article of Faith:”The reason I like this Article of Faith is because I really DO believe all of those things!”
FRAMES: After the sharing, each girl created their own “I’m Proud to Be Me” frame. The blank wooden frames were found at Michaels and the patterned paper was pre-cut (trace the frame itself onto the paper and cut them by hand) then attached to the frame with white glue painted on. I love the baker’s twine tied quote. I hope those girls BELIEVE how wonderful they are! Fabulous Activity!
