Tonight our meeting plan wasn’t quite ready. It’s my first week back as I was too jetlagged after visiting Australia. But I’m ready!
We’re doing the craft badge this term. I have a few bits planned, although I need to think how they’ll work with the badge syllabus.
Firstly, we’ll be making the shrinky dink necklaces – because it’s quick and easy. I’ll bring them home to bake and take them back in next week. We should be doing the First Aid badge next week, but finishing off the necklaces should be quick and easy – possibly one to start when the girls first come in.
Secondly, our Tawny Owl collected some rocks and pebbles from their seaside break in the school holidays. The girls can decorate each pebble which we’ll keep for Promise Ceremony time, when each rock will be placed around the pond. So they need to put their name on it and then do whatever they want. When they leave Brownies they get to take their stone with them.
Finally, an activity I spotted on the Girlguiding Brownie Leader Support Group. Each girl draws a picture of themselves, and the piece of paper is passed around everyone, where you have to write one nice word that makes you think of that person. Could be interesting… I think us leaders will need to join in too!
Let’s see how that goes….
