We are having a Young Women Olympics this week – which follows our lesson about caring for pur physical bodies nicely. I made these trophy cupcake stands from some old tractor pull trophies our local engraving shop was getting rid of (free!) and sturdy paper plates. I was inspired by Just Something I Made’s trophy stands – but didn’t spray paint anything, because I kind of liked the value colors represented!
I just pulled everything apart, gave it a good cleaning, then sandwiched the paper plates between marble and plastic pieces. I printed some labels on sticker paper to cover the 2005 tractor pull seal, and punched them out with a 2″ circle punch. You can download the seals here. I have extras, to present to the winning team as they go to be the first to pick out their torch cupcakes.
We had each Young Women class come up with 3-5 events to sponsor. The girls will explain the event then show how it demonstrates both physical and spiritual excellence. For example…
- egg and spoon relay race – we can carry one another’s burdens
- balloon toss – share the gospel with everyone!
- limbo – dodge the adversary
- hula hoop race – family relationship are circular; eternal
