help: need fhe ideas for ysa ward

Once back they turned in their food item and the receipt was checked. Then the items from one group were given to another and they were given 20 minutes to prepare something edible from what they were given.
The group that did the best dinner won. A local pizza place had given us a few gift certificates and that was the winning group’s prize. Oh, and the groups were formed by a drawing, not by friends! We had a problem with clicks and groups that didn’t mingle!

One activity I really liked was when everyone brought pizza ingredient stuff to FHE, and then we put everyone in groups to make the pizzas. There wasn't much competiton or anything, we just enjoyed working alongside each other. I met my wife in that activity and fell madly in love with her.

Whatever you do, remember the guys! I've had so many experiences with activites that are supposed to be for everyone, but intead cater to just the girls (chick-flick movies, that sort of thing) and it's pretty annoying.

Hobo diner, everyone was given five dollars to go and buy food to feed their group we then had them cook on camping stoves, at then end we tasted and judge their meals
We filled pantyhose with flour and had a "snowball" fight, similar to the fesitival of colors idea if you live in provo.
Tied up dinner. We made a dinner and everyone was tide up at the wrist with their partner. It was spaghetti and mashed potatoes we did it outside and it became a huge food fight. So much fun.
We did battle of the sexes a. Men had to race in high heels from one end of the gym to the other, take a baby doll out of a carseat and then put it back. We also had guys and girls race to change a tire and then push a full car around the parking lot in a race, etc. you get the idea.
Air guitar rock bands can be fun if the group is willing to put themselves out there.
Massive waterballoon fights are fun, ice blocking in the summer

Another one I remember was a campfire dinner...
I never really went to many of my activities when I was in a YSA ward. I usually had evening classes that overlapped with the activity times, or I just wasn't interested in going. Of course, that was the time when I became inactive...
I was in college at the time, and our campus did some really fun activities that might make good YSA activites. One of my favorites was Capture the Flag. We played it across the entire campus at 9pm. It was tons of fun.
William Shakespeare - “This above all: to thine ownself be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

-Game night at the Bishop's house. This was a fun one. The Bishop was a very successful businessman who started with nothing and has a great company now. We would play games like Monopoly and he would give us advice on finacial situations so we weren't all in debt.
-BBQ with nonmembers. The whole goal was to bring atleast one nonmember or nonactive member to the park where we had a BBQ and got to know everybody else.
-Indoor soccer. Look up the rules. Lots of people had fun with this.
I can't think of any more right now. Its 5 in the morning and I have to get to work haha. I will write down some more later.

Not all can really be done at home or on your own, but a lot of them can.
She said they did this just at a friends house, then they did it as a combines YM/YW activitie.
You could have different groups rotating around in different directions, so people are playing agasint different teams. My sister had some DVD that would count down, and then count the 60 seconds. I'm not sure where she got it.
Also most of these videos are also on Youtube.

"Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day."
