“Fun Stop,” New Era, Apr. 2020, 24–25.
Time to test your song knowledge! The main words in each hymn title have been replaced with their antonyms—words or phrases that mean the opposite. Can you figure out the real titles of these “anton-hymns”?
Low under the Valley Bottom
A Rich Standstill Woman of Joy
Less Wickedness Take You
You’ll Stay Where I Force You to Stay
You Sit Underwhelmed
As Brothers Out of Babylon
Want to teach your family a simple trick that’ll leave them breathless with wonder (or at least mildly impressed)? Use a white crayon to write or draw designs on your eggs before dying them. Wherever you draw will stay un-dyed. Cool!
What mood do you most want to capture during your next youth activity?
Whoa, tall order. Try playing the question game. Take turns handing a stick to someone different in your group. Each handoff, ask a question about their life. Friendships can deepen as you learn more about each other.
Play smiley hide and seek. One person uses a stick to draw a large smiley face in the dirt, and then the rest race to find it.
Play hangman or layered tic-tac-toe (see Fun Stop, New Era, Dec. 2019) in the dirt.
Divide into teams. Each team finds a stick about 12 inches long. Run a relay soccer race where each player kicks the team’s stick to an agreed-upon point and back.
Are You Feeling Pioneer-ish
Yes. Hold a “stick pull” contest.
No. Decorate and hide two sticks; then play “capture the stick (flag).”
Want to Work in Teams?
Yes. Play a “Pictionary”-type game of drawing pictures in the dirt with sticks and guessing the drawings.
Want to Work as Individuals?
Yes. Hold a drawing-in-the-dirt art contest on a theme of your choice.

A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief
More Holiness Give Me
I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go
I Stand All Amazed
As Sisters in Zion
