3 tips for success from our latest in person activity

Have you been given the green light to meet together and social distance? 🚦 My young women’s group just held our first in person activity at the church! 

Everyone had a blast 🚀 getting to see each other & playing fun distancing-friendly games! 🙋🏻‍♀️

👉I’ll share some timely tips for success we found as we got used to the new setup & the details of our fun activity so you can pull it off for your group! 🥳

** by no means am I claiming to be an expert. just a creative young woman doing her best to follow leaders + current counsel. no pandemic shaming pls. we can agree to disagree, and you can take all or none of the tips from what we did in our small yw group!😷**

1. Technology still is helpful 

Since this pandemic started, Zoom might have become the coolest thing since sliced bread. 🍞 I’m sure they were doing well before corona arrived, but I wonder if they realize, with the amount of people using it, their program just might have achieved world domination. 😂

At this point, we’re probably sick of the constant reliability on Zoom calls, virtual events & technology. 📱 But that doesn’t mean that some cool tech can’t be helpful when we can finally enjoy in person events! 

A slideshow helped us view what we were doing together, even as we sat a few feet apart. 👁

I know the logic may go, “if you’re just sitting & using a slideshow the whole time during an activity, what’s the point of holding it in person?” 🤷🏻‍♀️

I say, different activities meet different needs. Mix it up! You’re committing to distance and wear masks (or follow whatever your guidelines are), not to hold a certain type of activity every week. 😅

This setup worked for this less-active activity, and it can work for y’all too when you have activities like this! 😎

2. Clipboards (+ corona creativity) is key

As a student, remembering the days when crowding around a table in the cafeteria was a thing evokes some humor and nostalgia for when things were more simple. 😭🦠

As we distance right now, I’ve found that clipboards are key if printables are a part of your activity.🖨 

Print & clip all you need & then no need for passing papers, pens, and other supplies around throughout the activity. 📋 

Place one on each of the socially distanced chairs and you are practically, and aesthetically, all set.☺️

The deeper meaning behind the clipboard principle? If we get creative, we can find problems to the monkey wrench corona threw in planning events -- and still enjoy them while distancing!

3. Small details go a long way

By small and simple means are great things brought to pass! 

Look at our setup (in the gym so we could socially distance) before & after these small details.

All I added was some decorative banner pages & Family History themed Mormonads. The other young women helped me to put them up as people, and I took them down while they were journaling.

The moral of the story? You don’t have to go over the top to make this a fun & meaningful event! Simple touches like these can make all the difference + you have what it takes to throw a great in-person activity! Cheering y’all on. 😉🙌
