Mother's Day

This could be for a Sunday lesson, Enrichment Night or mid-week activity:
Our Relief Society went around and took pictures of every sister in the ward, serving in some way in their ordinary lives such as being a teacher, or in the nursery or being a mom, in their jobs etc. Then someone did a power point on a computer and put it to music. It was really neat and showed how we all serve in one way or another. They didn't tell us before hand what the pictures were for.


This year we're planning to have all the sisters from every auxiliary attend Relief Society on Mother's Day. We have a special lesson given by a member of our presidency and serve a light breakfast which the sister's absolutely love! The Bishopric and Elder's Quorum will help with the Primary and Young Women.
Last year about one month in advance we passed out a survey (See below if you are interested) and read the stunning and funny results as the sisters ate. It was light-hearted but pertinent to the sisters. The survey reflected all that they have done throughout their collective lifetimes---so fun for them.
This year we aren't quite sure what we should do for the first 10-15 minutes as they eat. Something casual and fun yet not to detract from the Spirit that we come to expect from Relief Society. Guessing game, mystery box, old photos etc. Just anything like that. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and could be used by several sisters.

Survey:
Just for Fun
How many nieces and nephews do you have?
How many children do you have?
How many diapers have you changed? (Give yourself an extra pat on the back for changing cloth diapers)!!!
How many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have you made?
How many children in your family have been baptized?
How many family members have served a mission?
List one or more reason(s) you are thankful to be a "daughter" of Heavenly Father.
