Angela writes, "About 2 years ago, I was asked to be in charge of my old stake's Young Women in Excellence night. My idea: Color Me Beautiful! Well, fast forward about two years and our ward's YW in Excellence night was this month and again we used my Color Me Beautiful idea.

Here are all the details:

Theme: Color Me Beautiful. It is based off of the value colors representing each YW value and teaching the girls that they are individually beautiful because they are Daughters of God.

Decorations: I had round tables with a paint can in the middle with tissue paper coming out the can. I tied helium balloons to the can also. I then scattered confetti around the table. So, each table had the tissue, balloons and confetti in on specific color. We had 7 tables. One with each color of the YW values.

Our ward YWIE night was a bit different (we didn't use round tables, we just put the cans on the value table).

A few weeks ago, we had a mutual night were the girls learned how to do self portraits using chalk. It was a great activity and we hung up their "masterpieces" behind the value project table. The artwork really helped tie in the theme of the night. It was perfect!

Then on the refreshment table I had paint roller brushes, paint roller brush pans, stir sticks, regular paint brushes and paint swatches and paint as decorations.

The on the Value project table I had paint accessories from artistic painting. Paints, brushes, smocks and paint palettes.

Program: We had the girls take a personality test (based off the book "The Color Code") to find out what color they were. We went over what personality traits that specific color had and gave a talk on how as YW they are given gifts/traits from God and it is these gifts and how they use them that makes them beautiful and unique. We had different girls perform (dance, singing, music instruments). We had some girls give talks on the theme and then remarks from the stake YW president.

Here is our wards program:

Prayer
YW Theme
Welcome introducing the theme
talk by a YW
"What color am I" personality test
Remarks from YW president
Song "Beautiful to Him" sung by a YW
4 min video "become like Him" (from the church)
remarks by bishop
prayer

Movie - For the stake event, I put together a movie of all the girls in the stake with music asking them questions based on the theme and took pictures of each of the girls. So, we watched that at the end of the program and then had refreshments.

Refreshments - ice cream brownie sundaes with colorful toppings.

Handouts - I put "red", "yellow", "white" and "blue" jelly bellies into white envelopes and attached the corresponding color traits to them. After the girls took the test, we had all those that were "reds" stand up and we handed them a "red" envelope. And then for the "whites", "yellows", etc.

This night ended up being a great night and one I think the girls really enjoyed!"

    Do you have a paper copy of a personality test? I don't have a book. But still wanted to give it to my girls.

  • Karrie Glazner

    Melissa, I have the color code book and typed up the quiz in it. You can also go to www.colorcode.com and take a free test there that will give you your results. I can email you the typed quiz I have if you are interested.

  • Heather

    I am going to do the personality quiz as well and don't have the book can I get a copy of the test? It will be in one month and preparations are coming right along except for the test. Let me know Thank you.

  • kadie

    I am also interested in the color code test. Might you be able to email me the test you typed up? That would be great!

  • Anonymous

    Hi there, me again! I really love this idea and wondered if there was anyway to get a copy of the quiz from you Karrie? I really would appreciate it. Please post if you need my e mail address!! Thanks

  • Joy

    Much of this activity sounds beautifully planned, but I would urge sisters NOT to use the Color Code personality test. I was "diagnosed" as a "red" while a teenager, which the book associates with powerful entities like Russia, and felt bad for YEARS that I wasn't inherently "nurturing" like a "blue" which was the color of Jesus Christ and the United States (in the book.) Our Divine Nature includes the ultimate capacity for all strengths. The color code suggests that your primary motivation is one of the following: (red-power) (blue-relationship) (white-peace) and (yellow-fun). Can you see how this stereotypes people and limits their divine nature? ALL of us have the potential to develop ALL strengths. Lastly, the social science evidence for the the color code is statistically very poor and contextually dependent.

  • Lisa Solis

  • Patty Nish

    Angela, I absolutly love this. What did you do for invitations? Could you email me what you did?

    Thanks

  • Trista

    We used this theme last week and it worked out great. I wrote a short personality test that includes all of the 8 values. I then wrote a description of each value and how it is a trait of the Savior. We had each person take the test at the beginning, then had each color stand up and we gave them a meaning with the appropriate color ribbon attached and candy in the appropriate colored bag. They loved it! If you want a copy of the test and color meanings I will email it to you. Just let me know.

    Hi Trista,

    I was wondering if you wouldn't mind emailing a copy of your personality test and christlike attributes to show to our presidency for YW in Excellence. I think it sounds like a great idea.

    Thanks,

    I love your ideas! We are thinking on doing it for our ward YW in excellence this year! I would like to ask you:
    What did you do for the invitations? Thanks.

  • TR

    I made invites and would love to add them to your page. Thanks for the idea. It was a a hit.

  • Guest

    We are wanting to do a similar activity for our YWIE. I love the way the response to the quiz was given to the girls. It looks like the circles have more than just the text in the pdf but I can't read the list at the bottom. Can you give me the details?

  • Guest

    On the final page of the Color Test Meanings pdf is the list of what each letter stands for. For example, if the person taking the test got the most A's then that would mean they were Red, which stands for Individual Worth and Leadership. If the person taking the test had the most B answers then they were Yellow, which is Good Works and being Social.

  • Trista K  - Personality Test with 8 values is uploaded

    The personality test incorporating the 8 values along with the meabings and how they are like the Savior have been posted above. No need to email me anymore for it. You can find them above. thanks! Trista
