Every month, I seem to struggle with ideas for personal progress because I want to make sure it goes with the value and I’m not leading anyone astray. You can imagine my delight when I found this idea. http://personalprogressbyann.blogspot.com/ I’m been trying so hard to help the girls pass off the different values but sometimes it’s hard to know what they have been working on on their own.
This is truly a “rainbow” of activities for different values. First, I always like to take invites to each girl the day before. I don’t know if your girls are like mine but sometimes they think personal progress activities won’t be as exciting as the regular activities and I want to get them excited!
I purchased pillow cases and the T-shirt transfer paper from Wal-Mart. This is super easy to put together. Make a calendar on your favorite program. Make sure the calendar is flipped so it will come out correctly on your pillow case. Follow directions on the transfer paper package.
The girls can keep track of reading scriptures, praying or any of the other activities by marking off their. calendar. They will be remembered when they wake up in the morning and before they go to bed at night.
I took my supply of Sharpies and let the girls decorate their own pillow case. Remember, to tell your girls, that when they wash their pillow case, add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the water and it will help the design from washing away!
I love to see how creative the girls are! My girls love to create and usually we run out of time before they think their masterpiece is finished! They love when I take pictures of their art.
On the back of the pillow case, I told the girls to write down any service that they do. This will take care of Good Works # 1.
The next activity, we worked on the sacrament prayers. I found this at http://www.modernroots.com/
I made a copy for each girl, so that they could take them home and memorize the prayers. This will cover Divine Nature # 4 and Faith # 4.
Individual Worth #4. This is great because the can finish this it at the activity. We sat in a circle and talked about the different questions. It was so fun to hear their answers!

We finished the night off by eating cupcakes! Of course, it had to be a rainbow cupcake. Here’s our recipe: https://www.loulougirls.com/2014/06/23/rainbow-cupcakes/
