Make Mormon Messages
This was a fun activity! We let our youth (we did this with the young men) know a couple weeks ahead of time that we would be making Mormon Messages. We had 3 groups: Beehives & Deacons, Mia Maids & Teachers, Laurels & Priests. They were responsible to get together and make a plan ahead of time. On the night of the activity, we had 3 camera people set up (adults in the ward) to record what they had planned. It took a good 1.5 hours to get these recorded. The youth then coordinated with the camera person who recorded their video to do any editing they wanted to do to get the finished product.
We had this activity in November. In January we always have a CYM/YW activity of an etiquette dinner. We showed these at this dinner as the entertainment. The Laurels/Priest one was by far the best (they did a bad date - good date scenario and based it on the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet).
This activity does take planning, and some commitment from the youth, but we found that most of our youth really enjoyed making these.
**I would post one of these so you can see it, but we have individuals in our ward who do not want these shown online, so I can't. But believe me - they were fun.
