Ideas for LDS Activity Days using "Faith in God for Girls"
The time has come to move this blog to a new address. You can continue to find this blog at
I hope you will update your book marks and follow me to our new home. This site will stay up for a few more months but any content updating will happen at the new site. Though I’m slow at adding new activity ideas, I am still working on it and hope you’ll continue to find it helpful. Thanks!
I was cleaning up my files on my computer and found a few more Activity Days plans to include here. There’s an activity for Service #6 now, and an activity for one of the Gospel Standards. Slowly but surely …
I’ve had a couple of comments and it got me inspired to come back and work on this website. I’ve created an entry for “Serving Others #3″ and updated some links that weren’t working anymore. It’s been quite a long time since I served in Activity Days now – my daughter was just beginning when I was released, and now she is in her last year! I’m serving in Young Women now, with almost all the girls I had in Activity Days. It has been so much fun!
A recent commenter noted that she couldn’t find the page where I talked about the activity we did for Articles of Faith. Which made me realize that my organization of this website could use a little help. I’m adding tags to my pages so hopefully things will be a little easier to find. And I really need to add some more content, so I’ll be setting some goals to get more content added on a regular basis. Any other suggestions? Let me know!
I’ve added an entry for Developing Talents #3. We had a lot of fun doing this activity and the girls were really creative. Do you have anything to add? Leave a comment!
After almost three years, I have been released as Activity Days Leader and am on to new responsibilities. But I’d like to finish up this site so that there are activities suggested for each required activity. I will continue to add activities (and will try to do this quickly before I have forgotten everything we did), but I’d love to include other ideas. If you would like to contribute activities you have done to meet these requirements, just drop me a line in the comments and I will contact you.
We just finished a fun Articles of Faith activity which I have posted about. We’ve done this a number of times and the girls always seem to have a good time and pass off a few more Articles. This is by no means the only activity out there – go search google and you will see just how many resources there are. However, in keeping with my goal to make activity days “active” this activity is full of games and there’s “prizes” at the end. Take a look!
I’ve added entries for Developing Talents #2 and #4. Both of these required activities are pretty easy to fulfill, but I did include short introductory “lessons” with scriptural references, etc. I’d love to include ideas that you have done with your girls to complete these requirements. Contact me in the comments!
I’ve added entries for Learning and Living the Gospel – number 2 and number 8. I’m going to try and do more on the other areas – hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
Our stake recently had a stake activity day. This year each ward primary has been collecting items needed to complete school bag kits for distribution by the Church Humanitarian Services. At the stake activity day all the girls in the stake helped assemble the kits. There were tables set up around the gym, each with 1 type of item. The girls were invited to make name tags (tags that they decorated with paper petals on which they were encouraged to write their name and things they liked) and then there was a “getting to know you” activity. Each girl was given a worksheet where they had to find someone else who had done one of the things on the sheet. Finally, the girls began going from table to table filling bags with the required items. There was a long table set up with “quality control” girls who double checked each bag, which were then placed in boxes. It was really cool to see all those bags! And did I mention all the snacks that the girls could eat while going around from table to table?
Have you done something fun in your stake lately? Wanna share??
Just added a new page with an activity idea for encouraging scripture reading. This is a two-part activity. We’ve only done the first part with our activity days girls, but so far they have been very enthusiastic, and had a great time running around the park looking for clues.
There are lots of websites with tons of resources for LDS Activity Days for Girls. What makes this one different? I focused on creating lessons and activities to help the girls complete the specific requirements outlined in the "Faith in God for Girls" book. If you have a great idea for one of these requirements, I'd love to add it to the site! Leave me a comment!
