Wok and Talk
(This activity is good for new presidencies, units with lots of move-ins or baptisms, transitioning young women, etc. For YW in Excellence add questions that get young women, leaders, and parents talking with young women about thier present and future Personal Progress sucesses, goals, and activities. -Jenny)
As guests arrive, they choose a marked chopstick, and sits at the table that matches up with the color or letter.
While enjoying their “wok” (Chinese food), someone draws a question from the container to begin their “talk”.
After a few minutes, someone takes up the chopsticks and everyone chooses a new chopstick. Everyone moves to a new table for a new “talk” with a new group of people.
***I am the counselor in charge of looking after transitioning Young Women, and I think this would make a fabulous activity for a Relief Society Enrichment Night to help Young Women get to know their older sisters better. An activity like this could be held at high school graduation time, as a sort of congratulatory/welcome to Relief Society thing. – Jenny***
