YW Value Colors Charm

For our YW activity tonight, I was in charge of the craft, so I came up with this dangling charm which has each value color - we added it to a chain to wear as a necklace:
We attempted shrinky dinks too - but I couldn't supervise both, so sad to report the shrinky dinks did not turn out - LoL I guess I need to communicate directions better =)

Education YW Lesson Handout

I made a paper graduation cap with green paper (for the YW knowledge value color) and put a quote on the top 'The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth. Light and truth forsake that evil one.' and side quote is from President Kimball 'Some are inclined toward formal university training, and some are inclined more toward the practical vocational training. We feel that our people should received that kind of training which is the most consistent with their interests and talents. Whether it be in the professions, the arts, or the vocations; whether it be university or vocational training, we applaud and encourage it.'
I filled it with miniature graduation caps made from rolos (similar shape!):

Catch Phrase

Natalie (9 years old): This is Kaylee's favorite thing.
Andrew (5 years old): Oatmeal!
Natalie: Noooo! This is Kaylee's favorite animal.
Andrew: (pause and then exclaims:) Baby cheetah!!
Natalie: Well, this is what baby cheetah's grow up to be.
Andrew: (so excited) Parents!
Auntie Cheri: (laughing - how cute!)
Natalie: (giving clues now) Baby boy cheetah's grow up to be lion's and baby girl cheetah's grow up to be . . .
Andrew: Tigers!
Auntie Cheri: (huh? at least they're on the same thinking level)
Natalie: Right. Okay, this word is a place and it's 2 words. First word is Tiger and second word is what trees are.
Andrew: Bark!
Natalie: We burn it in the camp fire.
Andrew: Wood!
Natalie: Right. Tiger Woods
Auntie Cheri: Uhhhh, Tiger Woods is not a place, he's a person . . . a famous golfer.
Natalie: (Pause) Whatever.
That was definitely an entertaining game - the kids played it in the car driving from one park to another on Orcas Island - we should have played it more! LoL
