hey! I love these! please keep adding to the list! I have a few Id like to share.

Our YSA program is really small, so everything is Bi-Stake (our stakes are super close to eachother) or regional, so these are bigger group activities since we dont have FHE groups. Some of the things that we have come up with are seasonal (like mud volleyball in the summer, and secret snowmen in the winter) we have had new years eve dances with game tables set up and we have dyed easter eggs. We have found that movie nights are REALLY popular, so I decided to expand on this idea to make an activity that should *hopefully* be really fun. We are going to break up into groups one night to make short movies on certain gospel subjects (book of mormom stories, utah mormom comedies, or portraying a gospel characteristic, i.e. charity, faith, ect.) and then a few weeks later we are going to have an oscar night, where everyone gets glammed up and watches the movies in the stake center, we will serve dinner and give out oscars (although we might change it to the Moroni Awards because the little gold statues of Moroni are kinda cool) Im super nervous about this activity, but I think it will be fun! Another thing that is a really great idea, is taking any leftover food you have to needy familes from the wards. Summer sportts leagues are something Id like to get started, something like ultimate frisbee or kickball because everyone can play. Ive come to love this calling because it makes me think of things that would be fun that hasnt been done before. Good luck to you all!
