This past week for mutual we had a really fun night. The idea was to create a original activity based on service.
We decided to have a “Service Scavenger Hunt.” We did this activity with the young women and men, but it would be fine with just the young women or even just the young men. The youth were split into teams with 1 leader (about 4-5 per group),
and given a list of tasks with coordinating point values. The activity turned out to be a blast! Not only that— it was a real eye opener. At first the kids were in a rush to get from house to house (trying to accumulate the maximum amount of points),
but by the end, they were doing extra tasks at the home… just because. After the activity, we pulled the youth together to hear their experiences with the service expedition. It was definitely a great way to have fun with service and have the kids reach out to needing members in the ward boundaries.
