In this "quest for value" the young women will be divided into two teams with at least one leader each.

Materials: (Just a quick overview)
-16 flags, 2 for each value color (flags could be cut and sewn, or just scraps of fabric or ribbon)

-1 bin of small children's toys
-5 fold-up chairs (the church ones work great)
