“I am attaching an activity that we did when I was in the Young Women’s presidency. It is for Salt Lake City use, but perhaps it can inspire other types of this activity in different cities.
“It is ‘Itty Bitty Mormon City’ and was inspired by the Itty Bitty City that the Salt Lake Tribune puts on periodically. I got the idea from someone else in our stake but the pictures they had were very old and copied so many times that it was too difficult to read or see clearly. We ha a little family outing and made our own new version with digital pictures.
“It was so much fun and I hope you will post it on your site so others can enjoy it as well!”
Her “ward did this as part of a Young Women/Young Men Super Saturday and it was a blast! All of the items in the photos are found within walking distance of Temple Square in Salt Lake City. After explaining the rules we sent the kids off in groups (with leaders, of course) to find the items and write their location. We set a specific time for everyone to meet back at a designated spot where we compared notes to see who found the most or if anyone found them all.
“Please be aware that I tried to photograph items that will not change locations, however that does not necessarily mean that they won’t! As part of your planning you may want to take a trip downtown to verify that they are still located in the same places as I have listed.
“Give the groups the copies of the pictures, the answer sheet, and the rules with the map of the area. I gave the adult leader of each group a copy of the details of where each item is located in case they got stumped.
“Have fun and THINK SMALL!!!”
This would make a very fun FHE activity or a great game to play when your family or group visits Temple Square.
