Camp Kick off {THE LORAX}

 This year our Stake Camp Theme is "Oh The Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss. Each ward was given a color and a value. We have Yellow, and Good works.
The stake asked each ward to choose a Dr. Seuss book to use as a ward theme. Our YCL's decided on The Lorax. I think it will be so fun especially with the new movie that just came out!
We had our Camp kick-off. We use this night to introduce the theme to the girls and to have parents fill out and sign the necessary paperwork.
Here's our invitation. They didn't know our theme yet so we wanted to give them a subtle little hint.

Our YCL's made up a cute little skit to introduce our Lorax theme. It turned out soo cute!
We also had yummy Lorax themed treats

Our Humming "gold" Fish

Chocolate Teddy Graham Barb-a-loots and Marshmallows

Chocolate Lorax Mustaches
I bought the chocolate mold HERE
I bought white Almond Bark from Walmart and used an OIL BASED food coloring to dye it yellow.

Swomee-Swan Nests
I just melted 1-bag of Butterscotch chocolate chips, and stirred in 2-bags 6oz crunchy chow mein noodles. Then topped them with jellybeans

Truffula Tree Sugar Cookies.
I saw this idea on Pinterest. HERE We just used Buttercream frosting instead of Royal Icing.
Right after you get the cookies out of the oven (While they are still hot) just poke the paper straw through the cookie.

 The night turned out great and our girls are so excited for our Lorax themed Girls camp

New Beginnings 2012

We had our new beginnings a few weeks ago and I thought I'd post a few things that we did. We got the theme idea from the blog Go Forward with Faith. Our girls loved it!

The invitations

We made these 4x6 invitations

And attached them to the cute "tickets" Found HERE.

This was the invitation for the night

We had a "playbook" for all the girls when they came in. (The parents LOVED this)

Here are a few things we put in their playbooks
Important dates for the year

A team roster

a list of the combined YM/YW activities for the year

The Pregame Pep Talk Schedule (lesson Schedule)
And a Practice Schedule (Activity schedule)
The Mia Maids were in charge of the Game for the night. They did a great job. They had questions about Personal Progress, and the new Strength of Youth booklet.
We were just in our RS room so we didn't go too crazy with decorations.

The Sunday before New Beginnings I had all the classes set  Goals for the Year. I had them displayed at New Beginnings and talked a little about them. We have this hanging in our YW room every Sunday to remind them to work on their goals!

For Food we served YUMMY Nachos. We just had chips, cheese, salsa, guacamole, Cafe Rio Style Chicken and Sweet pork, Sour Cream, Olives, etc... We just had water bottles for the drink. The night was a Huge Success and everyone had a great time!
