I haven't posted any of our Activity Days projects for a while. We seem to get so involved in the activities we are doing that I forget to take pictures. Bad Activity Days leader!!
Well, we did a really fun project today. It would be fun for the primary age kids, the young women or for a rainy day activity at home. The girls really had a fun time. It is neat to see how creative they can be. Some of the girls went all out and decorated their journals a lot, and some went for the more simple approach. But all in all, it was a really fun activity.
We talked about the importance of keeping a journal and about what kinds of things should be recorded. We also talked about what would have happened if the authors of the scriptures hadn't written down their experiences. Imagine not having the 4 gospels of the New Testament, or the writings of Nephi, King Benjamin or Alma in the Book of Mormon. We also talked about how important our writings will be for our children and grandchildren.
Okay, on to the journal making!
- Composition notebooks
- Assorted scrapbook paper
- Glue (We used white school glue)
- Paper plates (For holding the glue)
- Foam brushes
- Stickers, ribbon, assorted embellishments
