Here is a fun suggestions for a parent and teen, or older elementary aged children. Families come prepared with their collection of pictures from a whole year, and spend the evening together creating a family calendar, featuring themselves. Supplies for making the calendar are provided. Families are encouraged to work together at selecting the pictures for each page, and to reminisce while they work. If you have a video camera available, have a camera-person circulating the room, videotaping families explaining why they chose pictures for different pages. Then replay the video during refreshment time. If you do this in the late fall, families can make copies of their calendar for Christmas presents to family and friends.
Rally Day: Use this idea on Rally weekend, and have families make an album of their summer adventures!
