“Leap into YW” YW activity hosting the AD girls

It seems like it has become a tradition in our Ward to have the all of the YW host all of the AD girls.  It is a way for the older girls to introduce what it is like to be in young women’s.  The younger girls L O V E it!!!  This year it happened to be Leap year so we hosted on Leap Day.  Our theme was “Leap into YW”.  (Later we used this jump rope part as an AD activity because the girls loved that so much)

An Outline that we seem to do every time is this:

  • We pair an older girl with a younger girl. – sometimes we’ll pair a few girls to one girl
  • We have about 4 stations – rotate every 15 min. with 5 min in between. 
  • 3 of the stations are fun – craft, activity, photo booth, desert
  • 1 station will be a spiritual thought.
  • We send out invitation so younger girls know that it is at night time.
Our stations this year were:
