Lately (November 2, 2010) I have been thinking a LOT about the temple, and temple marriages.
I get all giddy inside just thinking about it.
I know that the temple time capsule has been used a million times, but I really like the idea. It's an oldie but a goodie! Who doesn't love a good temple time capsule? Every once in a while a girl just has to indulge.

Note from future (2017) self: I still love temple time capsules, now that I'm older and a little bit wiser I think it'd be smart to include "marriage strengtheners" for the hard moments. That way it's not entirely about the wedding, but the marriage. Scriptures about marriage, quotes, activities that can be done together, an article on how to forgive etc. would make great inclusions!

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: Dream/Goal Book
Originally from a blog post written August 16, 2010 when I was a Beehive in young womens.

Okay I am obsessed with cutting out pictures that inspire me and putting them into little books, so now I spend my days with a wad of magazines, scissors and glue cutting and pasting and cutting some more. This all started when one day for a Young women's activity we made dream books or goal books. Our teacher brought notebooks and scissors glue and ribbons and stickers and most importantly MAGAZINES. Some of the magazines were fashion magazines some were home magazines some were LDS magazines and any magazine she could get her hands on. She instructed us as she handed out to each of us notebooks scissors and glue to cut out all the pictures that symbolized, represented, or showed our goals and dreams for our future, scenarios we wanted to have, careers, education, children, lessons, clothing that was modest, along with pictures that would symbolize to us a women who stuck to all her values in life. We would Date each page that we did and when we went home that night after giving us a lesson on how planning your future and making goals for it was important and that we needed to prepare everyday to raise a family to gather knowledge of the church and gospel to teach to our children. She told us to put the book where we would read it often and to add to it at least twice a year and watch how some goals and styles change and how some stay the same. I really really enjoyed it and it seemed such and easy project that I wrote in my journal that night that I wanted to do this activity with my daughter too.

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: Banana Bread In a Can

I LOVE banana bread. I also happen to love to cook. Why not combine the two for an activity? Good substitutes would also be zucchini bread, or a chocolate bread of some sort. This is an activity that would need to be done at a leader's house due to the fact that you can't cook or bake in the church! That's just fine though, because I know as a young woman I used to love when we had activities at our leader's homes! Except, of course, when it came to asking where the restroom was. So maybe put a sign pointing the way. ;)

Something else great about this is that each girl would be able to get their own can. Which means if one of the girls doesn't feel like eating her banana bread right then, she won't miss out and can take it home. You could talk about the importance of learning to cook, self-reliance, food storage, and being ready for college and the life ahead.

So, you can get the recipe and instructions from the fabulous blog Thirty Wonderful Days by clicking on the linked image below. Happy baking!

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: DIY Magnet Boards

When I was little I LOVED felt board, and magnet board stories!
Below I have some links to great tutorials and stories that I found, and thought would make a great craft to make as a mutual activity! This would be wonderful for the girls to put aside in their hope chests/boxes/drawers.

"A hope chest, dowry chest, cedar chest, or glory box is a chest used to collect items of clothing or household linen, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life." - Wikipedia

Topics of discussion could include motherhood, The Family Proclamation, and womanhood. For instructions on how to do this from the blog Serving Pink Lemonade, click on the linked image below.

Here is an additional link to some printouts of stories etc. to add to the magnet board. http://www.makinglearningfun.com/themepages/FeltBoardPrintables.htm

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: Temple Lights

Hi friends!
One of my favorite talks is Elder Richard G. Scott’s talk For Peace at Home you can go to the talk by clicking on the following link. https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2013/04/for-peace-at-home?lang=eng

In it it talks about having your home be a safe haven, centered around Christ. Which led me to think about what I could do to make my room more obviously centered around Christ and the gospel. Somewhere I could go into and remember my purpose, and divine worth. Which leads me to the mutual activity idea!

This tutorial is called DIY Houses by Night and it is from Fellow Fellow.
You can go to the tutorial by clicking on the image bellow.
My idea, is to have the girls make these but use temple pictures. You don’t need glass containers, or votive, or even real candles. All there is to it is pictures, maybe some paper to reinforce it (probably a good idea) and battery operated tea light candles.

You can download pictures of the temples from lds.org by clicking on the following link https://www.lds.org/media-library/images/categories/temples?lang=eng

Anyways, have fun, and get creative with it. You could even Mod Podge the pictures onto small mason jars!

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: Battleship/Travel Game Folders

Hi dear readers!
I've got another young womens mutual activity idea ready for you! It's another in the Hope Chest series.

"A hope chest, dowry chest, cedar chest, or glory box is a chest used to collect items of clothing or household linen, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life." - Wikipedia

The girls don't have to have a cedar chest, in fact those from families that weren't able to afford cedar chests or found a cedar chest inconvenient just set aside a drawer or a spot under the bed.

On to the activity! This is a great DIY from the blog Jembelish what she did is she made a travel battle ship game folder (see pic), but the great thing is that you can put cross word puzzles, and all kinds of other games in it.

This would be a great opportunity to talk about wholesome recreation or motherhood.

LDS Young Womens Mutual Activity Idea: Can of Dates.

This would be a great craft to make for girls to put aside in their Hope Chest for when they get married!

"A hope chest, dowry chest, cedar chest, or glory box is a chest used to collect items of clothing or household linen, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life." - Wikipedia

They could create the can of dates for future use whenever they want to draw closer to their future spouse. It's also a great opportunity to talk about temple marriage, keeping the girls' future marriages strong, and how girls can prepare now for a temple marriage. For instructions on how to make this craft from the blog My Creative Stirrings, just click on the picture.

I also found some super creative date ideas that could be writtin on the papers from the blog Chasing Molly. To view this click on the following link. http://chasingmolly.com/blog/?p=958.

So, I think that these would be a great thing for the girls to make for when they are dating age or married, that way they can make sure that they are always on a productive, appropriate, and FUN, date!
