{Personal Progress} Ketchup Night! Part 2


Last Wednesday we had our Personal Progress ‘Ketchup Night’ for mutual.
Since I just got called as our ward’s Personal Progress Advisor I wanted to have an activity and talk to the girls about Personal Progress and see where they were at.
I saw a great idea for a ‘Ketchup Night
{original idea found here}
so that’s what we did.
We started out the night with ‘Ketchup’. I brought the girls French fries & tater tots to enjoy as we discussed Personal Progress.
I also brought some A&W Root Beer for all of us to enjoy. But I had a reason for the A&W.
I used the A&W to represent:
Always Work on your Personal Progress.
I originally saw Marci’s Root Beer tag that she used for a ‘Back to School’ treat for her girls and loved it!
So when I was planning our ‘Ketchup’ activity I decided to use the same idea, but changed it up just a bit.

I attached the handout to each bottle for the girls to keep as a reminder to Always Work on their Personal Progress.
I included a great quote from Ezra Taft Benson on the handout.
Everyone enjoyed the yummy food, and I was able to get caught up with where the girls are with their Personal Progress.
Personal Progress Reward
I also had a little reward for the girls. The Sunday before, I gave the girls a challenge to pass off at least one Personal Progress Experience. For those that completed one {or more} experience I gave them a pack of gum.
I wrapped some cute scrapbook paper around each pack of gum and tied some curly ribbon around it.

Then I attached a little tag on each pack of gum that said:
Thanks for ‘CHEWSING’ to do your Personal Progress.
The girls loved them.
After we ate and discussed Personal Progress we played a couple games.
I think the night went really well. I think any activity that involves food counts as a success. 🙂

 Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

    I really like the root beer tag that you made about personal progress. I am having interviews with my young women and I think that would be a fun thing to leave with them. I didn’t see a way to print your tag out, only the one that Marci did. Could you please let me know if there is a way to get a copy of yours?

    Thanks so much, Cheryl

    1. Hi Cheryl! The link is near the bottom of the post. You’ll see the link for the gum tags and then the Root Beer. I’ll send the file over as well. 🙂
