We played two games: 5 Little Monkeys and the PJ Relay. Five little monkeys is a version of musical chairs. Everyone stood in a circle with a paper plate on the ground to mark their spot. You don't have to use a plate, I just thought it would be easier than making something. We then chanted the 5 little monkeys rhyme while the girls walked around in a circle. At the point where it says "no more monkeys jumping on the bed" I removed one plate. Then the girls had to race for a spot. The girl who was out went to the monkey "hospital" and we started again, this time with "4 little monkeys...." I tried to keep it unpredictable by changing the number of plates I took away. Sometimes I just removed one; sometimes I removed 3 or 4 at a time.

The second game we played was the PJ Relay. I just took two pj shirts and two pj bottoms out of my husband's drawer and two outdoor chairs. I placed eacj set of pjs on a chair. We divided into two teams. The first girl in line had to race to the chair, put on the pajamas, run back to the starting line, take them off, and then hand them to the next girl in line. She raced to the chair, put on the pjs, ran back, took them off... you get the idea. It was mucho fun!
For refreshments we had a yogurt parfait bar. I just scooped some yogurt into a cup and they choose a topping or two-granola, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Super easy and not too sugary!
The girls took home a cereal box favor with a reminder to study their scriptures.
Here is the jpeg. I put these on those mini boxes of cereal you can buy in packs of 8, and tied a spoon on with a ribbon.
