Newspaper Prom

The Beehives were in charge of this week's joint mutual activity and when they told me what they wanted to do, I was a little skeptical. In fact, I was skeptical right up until about 15 minutes into it when normal Wednesday chaos quieted down a bit and they really dove into it.

What you need:
As much old newspaper as you can find (Being a former paper employee helps - Thanks, Danny!)
Duck tape in fun colors and designs

We had the Laurels and Priests pair off - we had two groups of Priest/Laurel and one group of three Laurels (with the Bishop's daughter offering to dress as the boy). Where were all our Priests?

Then each of the three groups got to choose their teams from the Mia Maids, Beehives, Teachers, and Deacons. The teams could do whatever they wanted to dress their Priest/Laurel, as long as it was modest.

We ended up not only with some cute dresses, but coordinating zebra print ties, a sword, and a cape. It was a nice activity for the leaders to sit back and enjoy while the kids went nuts with creativity.

Didn't they do a nice job?

  1. It's rather amusing these days that in order to find newspapers one needs connections? In truth, when I first read the title I thought, "Where'd they find all the newspaper?" ^_~

    I love the use of colored ducted tape.
