activity days: secret service mission

I found another great activity days idea over at the fickle pickle blog. I love when others make my calling so much simpler. I changed things up a bit to simplify and the girls LOVED the activity.

The idea was to send each girl on a mission to do secret service for seven days. I affixed fun labels I printed using a sheet of white address labels to 6x9 manila clasp envelopes. In the envelope I inserted:  
  • Ms. Fickle's downloadable sheets--one of service ideas and the other explaining the mission and a tracking sheet--found here.
  • a new pen
  • a bag of Pop SECRET microwave popcorn. 
We took turns reading the secret service ideas, and the girls (on their own) decided they wanted to assign numbers from one to five to each task based on how difficult they thought it would be. I thought it was a great idea. Anything that included the phrase "without complaining" received an automatic five rating. :) I seriously wanted to laugh every time.

 I told the girls that at the end of the week, they could pop the popcorn and invite their family members to gather together and talk about their "mission accomplished."

Activity Day Leaders: to make your calling simpler too, I included a download of the labels I used for the manila envelopes. Print them out on Avery 8250 (or compatible) white address labels. They measure 1" x 2 5/8" and come 30 labels to a sheet.
