Your first BMC meeting is starting soon, and although you’re excited, you’re likely feeling some apprehension – maybe even a little anxiety – about having to entertain and educate pre-teen girls.
After all, it’s crucial that they leave the meeting wanting to come back, right?
Well, literally take a page from our book – The BMC Essentials, page 12, to be exact – and start your year off with the All-of-Me Game. All-of-Me shows your members that they are multi-faceted and packed with Soul, and it lets everyone get to know each other.
Not down with All-of-Me or have an even better idea? Cool. Do what works best for you and your girls.
THE ALL-OF-ME BASICS
GET GOOD FOOD
Who doesn’t love some yummies? I guarantee the girls in your club do. One version of the All-of-Me game combines an introductory activity with a snack (in the center of the circle) so use that to your advantage, and provide them with a treat that leaves them wanting more.
MIX IN FUN QUESTIONS
The All-of-Me game allows you and your members to get to know each other, but they also learn about themselves too. Dig deep, but mix in some fun, unexpected questions to make the game a bit more interesting!
GET IN ON THE DISCUSSION
This game allows the girls to get to know each other through questions and discussion, but don’t forget that you are an integral part of this group. Please share part of you and your experience. They’ll appreciate it.
