Friends and Banana Splits

They divided our ward :(  I lost about half my girlies to a redividing of the boundaries.  I snuck in one more activity before it all became official.  Since they were splitting us up, I thought it would be fun to talk about the importance of good friends, how to be a good friend, and have banana splits (since they were SPLITTING us up).  

First off, we talked about how it was important to be friends with everyone...even those that aren't nice to us.  I told them a story of a boy I befriended when I was their age that was in a wheelchair and how special that experience was for me.  

Then, I taped paper to their backs and had them write something kind about the girl's back it was on.  They came up with some good ones :)  We then filled out a questionairre about each girl, and had them guess which friend was which.  We ended up outside taking pictures together.  We came in and decorated some foam picture frames I bought with glittery foam flowers.  I am going to mail the pictures to the girls that won't be joining us anymore.  

 Then of course, the banana splits.  I just had lots of toppings, and they went to town.  It was a fun last activity with some of our friends!
