Our Bishop extended a Book of Mormon Reading Challenge -
to read the entire Book of Mormon before the end of the year.
So, to create some enthusiasm and "real-life application",
we decided to have a combined YM/YW activity each month
 that applies to the chapters they should be reading
based on the estimated reading schedule.
So for our first activity, naturally,
we built boats.
Each young woman picked the young man
they wanted as their partner. 
and they went to town. 
 They were only allowed one small strip of duct tape
and as much newspaper and sticks as they wanted
 and each one turned out so differently!
And we got a little silly, of course 
 They only had thirty minutes to build,
which sounds like a long time, but it went by so fast!
 So when we were all done building
We had to see whose could float down the river the farthest
and our little deacon/beehive 
piece-of-wood-with-a-sail won! 
It was hilarious watching them float 
or...crash into pieces.
Hopefully they learned something.
