LIP SYNC BATTLE (QUICK IDEA SERIES) 4 OF 4

LIP SYNC BATTLE

I got this idea from the SYNC IN – ONE DAY WEEKENDS website, and I even copied their idea for an advertisement – here is my version: 
  • Basically its like karaoke, but you don’t actually sing – you lip-sync along with your chosen song. I pre-selected the songs (to ensure appropriateness) and brought about 20 songs and they took turns signing up for their picks. I did about 1/2 popular songs and 1/2 disney movie songs. They repeated some in the second round. Some girls did duets (even if the song wasn’t a duet). 
    Here are the songs I used – they could sign up for 1 song per round, and we did 2 rounds:
    DISNEY/MUSICALS
    “LET IT GO” (FROZEN- DEMI LOVATO POP VERSION) _____________________
    “LOVE IS AN OPEN DOOR” DUET (FROZEN) _____________________
    “A WHOLE NEW WORLD” DUET (ALADDIN) _____________________
    “PART OF YOUR WORLD” (LITTLE MERMAID) _____________________
    “COLORS OF THE WIND” (POCHAHONTAS) ____________________
     “I’LL MAKE A MAN OUT OF YOU” (MULAN)_____________________
    “POPULAR” (WICKED THE MUSICAL) _____________________
    MODERN (2000’S TO PRESENT)
    “IF I DIE YOUNG” (THE BAND PERRY) _____________________
    “CALL ME MAYBE” (CARLY RAE JEPSON) _____________________
    “YOU BELONG WITH ME” (TAYLOR SWIFT) _____________________
    “BREAKAWAY” (KELLY CLARKSON) _____________________
    “SINCE U BEEN GONE” (KELLY CLARKSON) _____________________
    “SOMETHING ‘BOUT LOVE” (DAVID ARCHULETA) _____________________
    “ROAR” (KATY PERRY) ____________________
    “I WILL WAIT” – (MUMFORD & SONS) ____________________
    “GOOD TIME” DUET (OWL CITY)_____________________
    “HEY THERE DELILAH” (PLAIN WHITE T’S) _____________________
    “BRAVE” (SARA BAREILLES) _____________________
    The Disney movie songs actually turned out much better because they could sort of act along with them. If I ever do this again I would do more Disney and less pop. They really preferred the Disney songs (and most knew all the words).

Pie-Throwing For Camp Certification!

Downloaded from: http://ldsywideasandactivities.blogspot.com/2014/08/pie-throwing-for-camp-certification.html After learning that a number of the girls from our ward did not complete their certification at Girls Camp last year (in some cases because they didn’t do the scripture-study portion), I really wanted to encourage all of the girls in our ward to certify for the year at Girls Camp this summer. Throwing pies at my face is always favorite activity, and its been a while…

This year, our Beehive class presidency has planned an all-girls (joint) Mothers Day activity that is a little different. When planning our Mutual activities, one of…
