Activity Days - Getting to Know You activity

by Kimberly Andrus

I just got called to be the Girls Activity Days Leader for the 8-9 year olds in my ward. So we are starting off with a fun Getting to Know You activity.

Invitations

This is the invitation I made for my girls. It's a combination of two ideas from Pinterest:

I ended up redoing the invitation.  Here it is!

We plan to use this M&M game, so that's how I chose the color scheme for the invitation.  The fonts I used were:

  • KG Second Chances Sketch
  • Indy Pimp

Cut out the "You're Invited" square and glue to the outside of a dollar store lunch sack.  Cut out the other pieces and place them inside the bag and fold the bag in half to deliver.
