I need your help!

I have been asked to teach the young girls (13-14 year olds) at church on the subject of Modesty.

I need some icebreaker games that go along with "Modesty" Do you have any ideas?



Modesty is not a trend. Modesty is a style.

I can't think of any specifically, but a game that reinforces first impressions might make an impact. This is a topic near to my heart right now as my almost 12 year old daughter has blossomed unexpectedly- now she is having the same problem I do- clothing is always too low cut- even finding tank tops to go under low cut clothing is a problem, as they are too low themselves! We have had much discussion 'round here about it.

Wow, that's a tough one. I can't help you, but hope you update with what you did. It's a bit early for me with 4 and 2 1/2 year old girls, but I think about this a lot already.

I have NO ideas when it comes to ice breakers for that age, and the fact that I don't have girls isn't helping much...BUT...

Throwing this out there, but what if you have a "what not to wear" fashion show where you have girls wearing things that are and are NOT maodest. Then you poll the audience to see what the group thinks of the outfit (whether it is or is NOT). This would require some planning, but with the help of some other moms of girls that age you can come up with two outfits for EACH girl to wear (that mom has picked out for each example).

Just a thought...

Go to Vicki Courtney's blog at http://virtuealert.blogspot.com/

Ask her!

I teach the 12-13 year old girls in our church for Sunday school and we did Courtney's study "His Girl". It is wonderful. I can't say enough good about it. There was a whole section on modesty. And on the accompanying DVD, a young lady gave a visual that none of us in class will forget.

She had a box of half a dozen donuts and she held it up right in front of her chest. Looked just like cleavage. She basically said to cover your donuts, and not put them out for display. But I'm sure she was more eloquent than what I just wrote.

Have fun!

What a fun age and what a great topic. I can not beleive the stuff thatis out their for my girl the clothes are almost all too low cut and the shorts are veryshort. I know of aice breaker but not exactley about being modestbut itwill get the girls talking. you put a name of a famous person taped to their back and they can only ask yes or no questions to help them figure out who they are. Hey maybe they could be girls who do dress very modest or girls who don't like brittany and lindsay and when they guess that persons name they can say why they don't think they dress apporiatley. char

MonkeyGiggles, I am so excited that you are teaching a class for young ladies on the topic of modesty... unfortunately, I haven't come up with any icebreakers or games to start off an event. However, I will pray about this and if something comes to mind, I will let you know for sure!

Blessings to you as you share the truth of God's Word with these precious girls

You are right, this is a tough one. I'm not sure of an icebreaker, however, with this whole Miley-Cyrus-picture-thing in the news, you might have a good opener for discussion. Here is a young, professing Christian, whose choices are affecting how others view her. Mabye even show some of the photos and ask what the group thinks and why? Did that make sense? Girls are always interested in "current events" and how they relate to them.

Thank you for the wonderful tips. I am going to be using a couple.

I will keep you posted.

Oh goodness, I can't think of anything. Let us know how it ends up going, though!

Oh gosh- that will be interesting and I hope you get some good ideas. Of course I immediately thought of the Miley Cyrus thing- and they'll most likely be able to relate!
