Temple Hair Ties

Temple Hair Ties

One of the young women counselors saw this cute idea for Temple Hair Ties on a Facebook group and asked me to help her put them together.  They turned out fantastically! You will need scissors, Fold Over Elastic — I got mine at Amazon, some cardstock — I got this at WalMart, and my printable — available below.  The cards measure just over 2.75 inches wide and 4 inches tall. …

How to Play Froggy Murder

how to play froggy murder

My cousin taught me how to play Froggy Murder at a family reunion.  Froggy Murder doesn’t take any set up, and it’s a fun activity you can use to fill up time at the end of a Wednesday evening or camp activity.  All ages can play the game, and it’s lots of fun to see how dramatically people act out when they’re dead. Variation of: Wink Murder Safer form of:…

Human foosball

I read about this awesome game at https://howdoesshe.com/how-to-play-human-foosball/  It sounds like it’d be so much fun for mutual!  Human foosball is a game to be played in the gym or out of doors inside of a fenced in or boxed in area.  It’s basically like kickball, but you play while holding on to a PVC pipe and only move horizontally to the goals. This is a great activity for mutual, because…

How to make a rhinestone template for your Silhouette Cameo without using flocked paper or Designer Edition

For whatever reason, the YCL’s this year chose a Peter Pan type theme for the girls’ camp shirts this year, and they asked me to help them.  As part of the design they wanted rhinestones. …..because nothing says camp like rhinestones….. I had the YW leader buy hotfix rhinestones in size 16ss.  This is a slightly larger size rhinestone, so I suggested that in case the girls had to place…

Girls Camp Kit Preview & Survey


It’s only March, but it’s already time to start thinking about Girls Camp! Last year I got to be really involved in the planning of camp with the other YCLs, and it was a neat experience. It was my final year at camp (though I may be coming back as a cook this year!) and now that I’m a “grown-up” I find myself in a new situation of observing how things are being executed without being directly involved.

I’ve had quite a few people contact me about creating Girls Camp files, and I’ve released a couple T-Shirt designs on Etsy in the past few weeks. The culmination of all of this is that I’ll be releasing Girls Camp “Kits” right around General Conference time. My goal is to have them all out before the Women’s session and Easter, but life has a way of getting in the way sometimes, so I won’t issue ultimatums just yet.

Before I release anything, I also want to get input from those who will be in the trenches–the leaders. I really dislike kits that include a billion things, when none of them ultimately are useful. My goal is to pack these kits full of tools that will actually be useful.

And so I’ve created a survey. It should only take a couple minutes to fill out, and the information will be invaluable to me in deciding what to include in the kits. I will also be putting up a number of free downloads (probably in mid/late April), so don’t fret if you aren’t interested in purchasing a kit. No matter your interest level, I would hugely appreciate any feedback you can offer!

Create your own user feedback survey

In the meantime, and to give you a better idea, here are a few of the themes for the kits. I have a couple more in the works, but I figured it would be wise to whet your appetites with these. The kits will likely include the majority of what is mentioned in the survey, which is why your feedback is so vital–to weed out the unhelpful tools and to see if there are any additional resources that would be wise to include.
