Pioneer Trek Game - Would You Rather Pioneer Style

This was a game we used for the Bus Ride to Trek.  As the youth entered the bus they were given a Question (printed on fun colored paper) and this helped to get the conversations going on the bus.

This would also be fun at any Pre - Pioneer Trek Activity!  

Pioneer TREK Booklet

We made 300 of these to pass out at our Kick Off - it was great with the calendar, challenges and even some journal pages for during trek.

We printed the Covers on a tan cardstock and they were staped together in the middle.  Our local copy store did a great job!

Pioneer Trek Family History Element

Pioneer Trek Trading Pins

Add a Fun element to your trek - Trading Pins!
We used 1" button pins for the youth to trade.  This was a fun tool to help them mingle more with the youth they knew and didn't know.  This provided an easy way to interact with those you didn't know.
Here is how it worked.
We had 3,500 pins printed - 30 unique designs
Goal:  each youth would go home with 15-20 pins
Each youth and adult received 10 pins in a design unique to their family the morning of trek.  They would pin one to their satchel and then the rest trade.
Certain events everyone received a pin (square dancing, trading post experience, book of mormon after a devotional, Mile 21.6 last morning of trek)

This was a big hit.  Most of the youth enjoyed this activity they carried it's own momentum all throughout trek.  And then was a fun memory keepsake to take home.

Satchels:  We had these donated/sewn by the women at church.  Each RS was responsible to sew 40 satchels so each youth and adult walking would receive one with their button pins.

Here were the designs, we used a company on Etsy who did a fantastic job!  I highly recommend:


Custom Buttons, Stickers,Magnets, Labels, Banners

WELCOME to our TREK Family

Our Stake Trek was a great experience, 
yet a lot of work.  Thus I am going to post a few of the things we did in hopes that they might help you if your about to venture out on a trek of your own!!:)

2018 Favorite Reads

I. had. no. idea.  I was visiting WA DC, and while touring museums I heard a little bit about how women got the vote and thought, "I know nothing about this".  I went home and started looking for information on the Suffragette story.  My local Barnes and Noble had NOTHING, my local library had ONE junior book on Susan B Anthony, but that was it!!  Finally after more looking, researching and reading, I found this book.  This book was amazing. Her story is shocking, she tells it in a no nonsense, easy to read way. I underlined and underlined my way through this incredible story.  How could I not have known this?  I bought my daughter this book, I bought myself this book, I had my book group read it... yes, it's that good!  And yes, it's that important!  P.S. It's free on Amazon:)
(byw this is NOT the movie Suffragette, yes, same topic, but not Emmeline's Story)

This was a surprising find from our city Library.  I loved it!  One of those fun stories that just pulls you through.  Easy to read, full of adventure, with twists and little bit of love.  Remember to grab a blanket as you enjoy this frosty story.

more coming.....
