This week for our YW activity we went walking; we only have 6 more Tuesday's until we leave for our pioneer trek, and the weather was finally nice-ish, so we all strapped on our hiking shoes and walked a little over a mile. Our little pioneer children did not sing as they walked however... we ate as we walked!! Nothing like ice cream to get the girls to come to a less than exciting activity.
Because our activity wasn't to exciting I will post a photo tutorial on how to create a bonnet pattern. Our Amazing Relief Society sisters had an Enrichment activity last month dedicated to helping the youth get ready for our Trek; there were about 7 ladies with sewing machines and they helped the girls make their skirts and bonnets!!
** If you wanted you could fold the paper you are using to make the pattern for the brim in half. Use the fold and draw the 5-1/4" long line AC right along it (step 2); after you have finished creating the pattern, cut it out, and unfold; wha-la you have one long piece. Then you would only need to cut one from your folded fabric and one from interfacing.

The handouts have been a big success! This week we forgot to hand them out and the girls asked asked about them after they had cleaned up the chairs. We have also been delivering the handouts to girls who haven't been able to attend or are inactive to let them know we missed them.
This was Easter Sunday and I was visiting family and didn't see what was created (I'm sure it was AWESOME! They all have been so far) This one would have been fun.
