• Good Morning - Developing Talents

    In the Faith In God book, one of the requirements is to list five things you can do to help around your home. Discuss the importance of obeying and honoring your parents and learning how to work.

    This activity has 3 parts:
    Make Pancakes

    Hide and Seek Activity
    For the activity you can talk to the girls about how they can help around the home. To introduce this somewhat un-fun topic in hopefully a fun way, play a game of hide and seek. Write down on pieces of paper different chores and hide them around the room before the girls get to the activity. When the girls arrive, have them find the pieces of paper. Once they are all found, have the girls read aloud the papers that they found. 

    Good Morning Chart
    I don't know about your home, but mornings in my home can be rough. I think one of the best ways these girls can learn to obey and honor their parents (and maybe help their sanity) is by learning a good morning routine! Hence, the Good Morning chart. The whole point of this chart is to have it done before they go to school, without anyone coaxing or asking them. Have each girl come up with one thing they are going to do every morning to help the family out that they will include on their "Good Morning Cards". After you have each girl share what they came up with, have them write it down on their cards and then cut their cards up so they are ready to start the next day. 

     Each morning, once they have marked off "say prayer, make bed, brush teeth & hair, read scriptures, personal choice", then they tape the piece of paper onto the chart. Once they have completed their whole morning routine for about a month and their chart is completed, they can return it to a leader for a treat :). 

    Make Pancakes
    And then, to go along with our morning theme and learning to do work, have the girls make pancakes without any help from the leader. Let them figure out how much water goes with the batter, and prepare any toppings. You can also have them set a table and then do the dishes :)
