Personal Progress Night Activity: Personal Progress-O-thon

 Do your YW need a bit of a ‘jump-start’ on their Personal Progress? Why not plan a fun Personal Progress Night Activitywhere the girls can work on, and complete, several experiences. Today I am sharing this great idea as well as some great printables to help you out.
Personal Progress Night Activity Idea
This activity is great for Young Women who are new to Personal Progress or those that have kind of fizzled out.

While searching for Personal Progress ideas, I came across THIS idea and thought it was excellent. We decided it would be great for our Young Women, so I got to work planning. Instead of using this activity for mutual we used it for a Personal Progress Sleep-over.

I used Kinzie’s great idea and added a few of my own. Here’s what to do to have your own Personal Progress-O-Thon:

Before the activity:
Print out all the printables that I have provided below.
I have included:
– 8 Value Jar Labels {shown above}
– Personal Progress-O-thon Checklists
– Other lists, definitions, etc. needed for experiences
Look at each of the value experiences that can be passed off or started and decide what extra materials you will need for each experience.
Example:2 Conference talks on Faith, etc.
For our marathon I set up 8 stations for each value.
At each station there was a Value Jar. Each jar was filled with candy in that particular Value color.
On each of the jars was a ‘Value Card’ that had what experiences the girls could pass off.
So, find some jars and candy and put your Value Jars together.

To Play: 

Tell the girls that tonight they are going to participate in a Personal Progress-O-Thon!
Show the girls the 8 stations around the room and explain that all around the room are ‘Value Jars’ representing one of the 8 values. On the front of each of the jars is a card that lists 2-4 experiences that can be finished or started tonight. Let the girls know how much time they have for the activity, and then tell them that the goal is to finish as many experiences as possible in that amount of time. Each time a girl completes an experience have them check it off their checklist, and then open up the jar and enjoy a piece of candy. Then move on to another experience!
At the end the girls counted up how many experiences they finished. I then awarded the winner with a bag of skittles and told her ‘Thanks for tasting the Rainbow of Personal Progress.’
Kinzie has some great printables for a treat for all the girls at the end of the activity, so be sure to stop by and check it out, Visit HERE.

Our girls really enjoyed this activity, and I was surprised how many experiences they passed off! Even though we did this at an overnight party, you could still use this idea as a great mutual activity.

    Did you print each of these for every girl attending?

    1. Hi Katie! Some of the printables I did print out for each girl. The Value Cards I just printed one of each and placed the card at each value station. This helped the girls know which value they were passing off. Each girl received their own score sheet, to keep track of what they worked on that night. For the printables that only have a quote or question on them, I think you could print 1-2 and have it stay at the station, but for the printables that the girls have to record things I would definitely print one for each girl. I hope this answers your question. Thanks so much!
