This inspiration for this activity is taken from the book, “Young Women Value Activities” written by Linda Dastrup (1993). This idea will hopefully give inspiration that you can adapt to your girls and their needs.
INVITE INSPIRATION TO SEND TO MOMS: We will be having a very special program for you and your daughter. This program will focus on recognizing the individual worth of each young woman. As part of our program, we would like you to take 1-2 minutes to share thoughts on your daughter’s individual worth. You may share any special gifts or talents she may have. And why she is a treasure to you.
If you choose, you can invite each mother to bring an item she treasures. Examples may include something special like a letter, heirloom, photograph, or something they would like to give their daughter. This will be something each young woman can then treasure forever and remember this special night.
This activity will help the girls to appreciate each other on a deeper level. They will be able to see that girl through the eyes of each girls mother. Talk about a whole new perspective that can really help unity in your young women’s. This activity will be such a special night, allowing each girl to develop stronger self-esteem. It will offer each girl an opportunity to appreciate her own worth on a deeper level. Also, what a beautiful experience this could be to help each of your young women’s mother/daughter relationship. That is the goal, to go home that evening with each mother and daughter bond strengthened on a whole new level.
