I need help

So as most of you know I am in charge of planning enrichment activities for our ward. We are planning a super saturday for october and the only problem with that is I have never even been to a super saturday. I guess avoiding extra church activities for my whole life has come back to bite me in the bum. So if any of you have any great ideas for me I would love to hear them. I need help... what is the funnest or most useful thing you have done at one of these shindigs?

Vinyl letter signs always seem to show up at enrichments. You could do a Christmas craft or magnet board, or cards to exchange. Choose like 6 activities and find people to be in charge of those activities and serve lunch. Easy enough right:)

I thought of vinyl letters too. We just did a Super Sat. where we put the letters on tiles. We could choose whatever saying we wanted, but to keep it simple just have options people choose. Also some people did FHE boards with the letters- with "Lesson" "Treats" etc on the board and pegs for people's names to hang on. I made a family name board "Orgill, established 2007" like people have up in their houses.

I like Rochelle's idea. Thanks for leaving that message on my blog about your moms exercise clothes. I seriously laughed out loud for a while!

hey what's that about exercise clothes? On super Saturday, you spend about 4 hours doing crafts and then have a luncheon after. You choose about 5 or 6 things or classes to do. The women sign up for them. Remember to delegate. It will be a lot easier for you than trying to do it yourself. They Vinyl letters are very popular. We did ours on glass and had them framed. Plan some craft for Christmas like ornaments, those go well, or a cooking class on pies or something like that or candies for Christmas. You could send a paper around and get ideas too, but remember to delegate
