The Gift of the Holy Ghost

I have been writing about our recent lesson in Young Women about the Holy Ghost (you can find some ideas here and here).  This is one more idea I used. To present the topic for the lesson, I gave the girls each a gift (to represent the Gift of the Holy Ghost) and asked them what we might be talking about. To give them an extra hint, the gifts were filled with Dove chocolates (to represent the Holy Ghost descending like a dove when Christ was baptized). It didn't take the girls long to figure out that we would be talking about the Gift of the Holy Ghost. I thought this was a fun way to get the girls interested and involved at the very beginning of the lesson.

I found the cute little gift boxes at DollarTree.

How do you get the Youth interested in the lesson topic? Do you ever use treats to catch their attention?
