OUR CHOICES AFFECT OUR FUTURE (WAITING TO BE MARRIED IN THE TEMPLE):
- Raw vs. baked brownies object lesson - display a pan of uncooked brownies and a pan of cooked brownies. Offer the girls raw brownies to eat, or give them the option to wait until the end of the activity to have cooked brownies instead (discuss how virtue relates to temple preparation, the choices we make now affect our options in the future - is it worth it to wait for something we really want?)
- We need to take certain steps to be married in the temple.... Play "minute-to-win-it" temple game (timed game with a temple-worthiness theme, you try to complete all of the tasks on the sheet within 1 minute... just draw on a sheet of plain paper with a sharpie, you can make whatever tasks you want.... here is the game I made....
(I used a regular drinking straw in the photo because I hadn't bought the licorice yet)
- Make temple-shaped white chocolate candy (I have a set of candy molds that I purchased here) and use them to decorate the pre-baked brownies (that were shown at the beginning of the activity).
- Eat brownies!
MATERIALS NEEDED: 2 pans of brownies (1 baked, 1 raw), a minute-to-win-it temple theme game (make your own with paper and markers) with a set of candy for each girl (1 twizzler/licorice, 1 skittle, & 1 hershey's kiss), temple-molds and white chocolate (optional)
PURPOSE: Get the girls thinking about how their choices (actions & thoughts) impact their options, setting goals for the future
