I work with 10 and 11 year old girls in the Activity Day program at my church. We do activities twice a month that develop talents, give service, and of course we PARTY a lot! I have loved working with the girls, and the other awesome Activity Day leaders. Early on I learned that the girls love to do SNEAKY service projects (so does their leader)... So a few years ago we started a tradition of Heart Attacking our Bishops (congregation leader) office! This year we also decorated the Stake Presidents office (another Church leader). The girls had so much fun, and I am sure the leaders will have a 'heart attack' when they see there office!
1) We had the girls cut out hearts, and write messages to our Bishop and his counselors... The girls are so creative, it was a lot of fun. Unfortunately I did not get a picture of this step!
2) In past years we have just bought candy or cookies, and put in the office. This year I thought we would make a giant pizza cookie. I got Pizza boxes from a local pizza shop, they were so nice they just gave them to me. I used this recipe from Betty Crocker. I made the pizza crust before hand and let the girls decorate. To be honest I was not thrilled how it turned out. I think butter cream frosting would have been better, then melted chocolate chip frosting. I used mini crock pots to keep the white and chocolate chips melted.
It was such a fun activity... And I think this activity could easily be adapted. You could maybe heart attack a neighbors door, or let your kids heart attack their grandparents house... etc, etc... There are so many ways to share the love!!
I love to link, at these awesome blogs, come join the Party!
