Enrichment Activities

When planning enrichment, I think that a lot of the activities tend toward the extras. What used to be basic homemaking skills are no longer taught in today's society. Enrichment is filled with activities that are fun, but not always practical. Sisters who have never married,  or are divorced, single parents, and widows need to learn more than just scrapbooking. An occasional lesson in these things is fun, but we need more substance! I have included a list of some things that would make good enirchment night ideas, most with a single sister in mind. You may be married, but that could change at any time. It is best to be prepared.
