Girl Scouts December meeting

At last month's girl scout meeting, I made a mental note that we need to dive into the girl scout law and the character virtues behind it. So this month we did that. We opened with the Girl Scout promise. Then we talked about the Girl Scout Law and what each part means. I asked them to share examples of when they used those characteristics, or noticed someone else using them (or NOT using them!). They even took it a step further and started acting out examples!

So we covered:
fair, etc.

For our activity, we made coffee filter snowflakes. Just like each of the girls, each snowflake is different. They colored with markers and cut out all different shapes and designs. Each girl made 2-3 snowflakes.

We took the snowflakes to a local nursing home where we went caroling this weekend. The residents were thrilled to see children visit and sing to them! And now their doors are a little more festive too!


I was really happy that everyone was able to make it to this meeting! We even had another "visitor brownie"who might be joining soon! In the wake of the Newtown, CT school shooting, I look at every child different now. Every little life is so precious and should be cherished and lived to the fullest. I just read that 8 of the 12 girls who lost their lives were Daisy Scouts. I am so thankful for each and every one of these girls!

We are looking forward to more songs, games, crafts, activities, and outings in 2013. And of course COOKIE SALES start in January!! So if you know a girl scout, be ready to place your order!
