Tonight's meeting is going to be the first with our new crop of Juniors from last week's bridging ceremony. I'm not sure how many we will have since some will wait to start meeting with us until next school year so we are opting for a fun get-to-know-you kind of meeting. While searching for just the right activity I came across the Girl Power patch program from Patchwork Designs. You can take a look at the entire program here (PDF) We won't be doing all of the requirements as a troop, we're going to try to hit on the six that make up the wording of the patch. Tonight's meeting planner looks like this:
Horseshoe (Opening) - LAUGHTER - Toliet Paper Game: Roll starts on one side and works it's way around the horseshoe. Girls are instructed to "take as much as they will need" and once everyone has their desired amount the girls are told that for each square they took, they will need to tell the group one thing about themselves.
Project 1 - CARING - Bullying Scenarios (from the packet): Girls volunteer to read the scenarios and everyone responds as the the choice they would make. Related badge: Being My Best #7
Project 2 - FRIENDS - No Sew Hair Scrunchie (from the packet): Girls make hair scrunchies by tieing different ribbons (cut to 10 inch lenghts) onto plain elastic bands. Related badge: Art to Wear #10
Next week we will do three more projects to complete this program. If you are joining us next week, be sure to bring a can of your favorite pop (and your own vanilla ice cream if you are part of the virtual troop) so we can make ice cream floats. Yum!
