LDS Activity Ideas

Once Upon a Time – YW Camp Theme

Based on “We have to keep writing, keep walking, keep serving and accepting new challenges to the end of our own story…” (Gayle M. Clegg, “The Finished Story,” Ensign, May 2004)

Each ward selects a fairy tale story as their theme for colors, decorations, etc.

Workshop Ideas: “Writing my Story” (The importance of keeping a journal), “Mirror, Mirror, On the wall: Should I even try at all?” (Individual Worth, Endurance), “Joy in the Journey” (Making the most of each day), and “Happily Ever After” (focus on Christ-like living; we determine our destiny).

Activities/Crafts: Any craft to do with fairy tales. Make/decorate a mirror, glass slippers (flip flops), make book marks, etc.

Game: “Nursery Rhyme Silly Song” (Sing to tune of “Polly Wolly Doodle”, omitting the chorus “Fare thee well” part.) Split girls into groups. The first group starts by sing the words of a nursery rhyme to the tune. When they are done, the next group sings a different nursery rhyme to the same tune. Continue rotating in order. If a group repeats a nursery rhyme or cannot think of one in time, they are out. The remaining group is declared the winner.

Skits: Have each group present a modern-day version of their fairy tale.
