In our ward, the Activity Day leader was released so the Primary needed volunteers to host an activity until a new leader is called. Seeing how I am so fantastic and willing to do all (there's sarcasm in there if you didn't know already:) I offered to host this week.We talked about how the "glory of God is intelligence" so we stretched our brains a bit and had an engineering competition. The girls were in 3 teams and I gave them a ball of playdoh, 33 straws, and 30 minutes to build a structure that could withstand the wait of a cup full of rocks. They did really great working together and at the end of 30 minutes our winning structure held over 52 gravel sized rocks. Second place held 34 and 3rd place held 9.
It was a lot of fun and I was surprised that none of the girls had ever done an activity like this. What's up with that? Brainy girls are the bomb!
Here are some photos from the activity.
