M&M Night with Mom

M&M Night with Mom

……M&M Night with Mom is a blast !  You get M&M’s and put them in those little dixie bathroom cups and give one cup to each person filled with M&M’s. Everyone sits in a circle on the floor. (I put quilts on the floor) Then , one person at a time a person takes an M&M out of her cup with her eyes closed. Depending on what color it is once you pick an M&M you have to tell something.

Red M&M  ……..something scary that happened
Blue M&M……….something no one knows about me is ….
Green M&M………a dream I have is ….
Orange M&M……something I like about me is …
Brown M&M ……….something I am afraid of….
Yellow M&M ………..an embarrassing moment….

After you share you get to eat your M&M !!!

Whatever you want to do with the colors you can come up with your own, as long as you make sure the moms and daughters sit next to each other. The bonding is really neat to watch as they laugh and share. This activity turned out so well and I have like 18 girls and EVERY mom came !

Here’s one I created for the book “10 Terrific Programs for New Beginnings or Young Women in Excellence”

A FAMILY FOREVER
*Additional Activities*

The Mother/Daughter Game:  Invite the mother of each young woman in advance.

1)  Place mothers (and Mom Stand-ins) in a “soundproof booth” while young women sit in a circle of chairs.  Skip every second chair for when moms enter.  Young women are then asked a series of questions about their moms.  Don’t answer out loud!  Each young woman writes her answers (one or two words) on large cards, then places them in order in a face-down stack under her chair.

2)  Mothers are invited to join their daughters and take the seat beside each girl.  Moms are then, by turns, asked the identical questions about themselves.  After the first mother answers, her daughter holds up the sign with the daughter’s guess of what her mother would say.  If the two match, (hooray!)  the mother-daughter team gets a point on the scoring chalkboard.  Then the next mother answers the same question, compares with her daughter’s response, etc.  This is repeated for each of the questions, beginning at a
different place in the circle each time.  Check the half-time score!

3)  Daughters and mothers switch roles, with girls going to the “soundproof booth” while the moms write down their responses to a set of questions about their daughters.

4)  Daughters enter, and are asked the identical questions about themselves.  Mothers hold up cards with their best guesses about their daughters.  Matchers get points, non-matchers get educated!

Have a fun prize (Twix bar) for the winning team to share.  Supplies needed:  cards, markers, chalk and board, 2 question lists,
REFRESHMENTS!

We just had our annual Stake Mother & Daughter Activity last night and it went really well! I was extremely relieved as I was only called as Stake YW Pres 2 months ago and didn’t have a clue about the program up until then!!

We put on a ‘Pampering Evening’ which included:
– A Colour Analysist: For the first 45 minutes. Everybody all in together.

Then they could each choose 2 out of the following 3 workshops:
– A manicurist: She taught them how to do a complete hand and nail treatment on each other
– Head , Neck & shoulder massage:
– A Hairdresser: She talked about face shapes and hair styles, then did some demonstrations.

We blessed the refreshments (various cakes, platters of strawberries and grapes, various drinks) during the opening prayer. This meant that they could grab a drink or something between workshops, throughout the evening. This gave the whole activity a really relaxed an informal feeling.

Everybody had a fantastic time, and we had trouble getting them to go home at the end of the evening! I made some cute handouts for them to take home – on the front it was a cute picture with “Mothers & Daughters” written on it. When you opened it up, it said “. . . are ‘mint’ for each other!” It had an after-dinner mint chocolate slipped inside. Everyone thought they were adorable.
I also did some Chocolate bar wrappers which I wrapped around a 200g bar of chocolate for all the people who did the workshops. It had a big “Thank You!” on it, followed by a quick poem I made up:

“You’ve given your time on this Saturday night
To help mothers and daughters look and feel just right.
Whether it’s nails or hair, shoulders or feet.
Thank you for helping
– Please accept this treat!”

Needless to say, they all said they’d be happy to help again!! Love & hugs

I just wanted to share with you what we did for our Mother-Daughter party last night.  First of all, the mothers and daughters were instructed to come dressed the same.  Some examples were:  one pair wore jeans with a BYU sweatshirt and their hair back in a ponytail, another pair wore jeans, matching white shirts and maroon zip-up sweaters,  my daughter and I wore tye-dyed T-shirts and matching chokers with peace signs on our cheeks, another pair dressed up western with hats.  We had a “fashion show” with a photographer ( a sister in our ward)  taking their pictures as they “modeled”.
A few weeks before the party we asked the mothers to give us a picture of themselves as a teen and then a baby picture of their daughter.  We put them on posters and everyone had to match the mom and the daughter.
We also asked the moms to write something down that they did as a teen that was crazy or unusual or memorable.  We then read them one at a time and everyone had to guess which mom it was.
We then had a sister in our ward who is a DJ teach everyone a line dance.
For dessert we had ice cream with dirt (crushed up Oreos) in a little flowerpot with a cookie “flower” standing up in the middle.  (You get a skewer and put on a gummy mint looking leaf and then put a vanilla creme center cookie on and then a candy “dots” at the top)  They looked really cute.
We also had a table with flowers on it where the moms and daughters posed and had their picture taken together.  Everyone seemed to have a great time!

Sissy 🙂

Wanted to tell you about our fun Mother/Daughter party last night.

We started off with the mom’s and daughter trying to match up the baby pictures of everyone present.  I was amazed how much the YW liked this.  Then we had the mother’s stand behind a bedsheet and put their hand underneath.  Then the daughters were to guess their mothers hand (no jewelry).  This proved to be a funny challenge for them.

Afterwards we handed out letters to the Mom’s written by their daughters (done in a previous activity night).  Then we handed out letter’s to the daughters written by their Mom’s.  The girls really liked this because they knew about the surprise for their Mom’s but didn’t know we had been sneaky.

For dessert we had a fondue party.  This was a HIT!!!!  We had 3 fondue pots – semi-sweet chocolate (chocolate chips & evaporated milk), white chocolate (chips, evap. milk, almond extract), and strawberry (frozen strawberries w/ cornstarch).  For dipping we used: pretzels, marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, apples, (could dip pineapple, mandarins, grapes, kiwi, graham crackers, etc.).  Everyone like dipping, eating, and talking!!

Hopefully this will be useful to ya!!!
