Exploring Snow Party

Have young women dress as explorers. (Big Coats, hats, gloves,etc.).
Plan dinner in the snow. (Have them eat from cans, etc.)
Plan activities such as a treasure hunt. (Put things in snow and have clues.)
Talk about if you don't find it the first time, keep trying. Just like the gospel--don't give up, keep trying. You could have someone come and show them how to survive in the snow and have them build a bed, etc.

build your own dinner party

Each girl is asked to bring her favorite recipe, but the recipe is "un-built". She will put the recipe and ingredients in a sack. When everyone arrives, hand each girl a new sack (one they didn't bring).

Work together and prepare the recipe.

Serve dinner.

It's nice to have a firm set of rules in life.

Compare recipes and then exchange them.
