This was a YW combined activity that we were in charge of. We wanted the girls to learn some cooking skills & also talk about the importance of dinner time with the family. Sooo, we came up with the idea of a pizza night. We would sit down as a YW 'family' & have dinner together at our YW's Pizzeria! :-)
When the girls arrived, we had pizza dough for them to shape into a personal pizza & put their toppings on. While the pizzas were in the oven cooking, we talked about the importance of spending dinner with our families & having conversations with them. We had the girls put together & decorate conversations jars to be used in their own families. They had to cut up strips of paper with questions on them & put in their mason jars. We got the pizzas out of the ovens & put them on the table where we sat down together & used some of the questions from the conversation jar as practice. It was a fun evening & the pizza was awesome!
One of our class activities was preparing for our combined YW activity. We had the girls put together invitations & make place mats/name tags for each YW:The Invitation:
