Activity Day

Today I decided our activity would center on this activity in the Serving Others section of the Faith in God for Girls booklet:
Write a letter to a teacher, your parents, or your grandparents telling them what you appreciate and respect about them.

I didn't want them to just write a letter (and that wouldn't take up the alloted 75 minutes), so I got the idea to have the girls make pop up cards to go with their letters of appreciation.  This YouTube video told me everything I needed to know.

The girls and I thought up things they might admire and respect in someone and I wrote them down on a big sheet of paper. They wrote their letters on triangular pieces of paper.

After they made their cards and decorated them, I glued their notes inside each one.  Aren't they cute?
