This term we had an American theme. We exchanged postcards with 50 Girl Scout Troops in the USA, gained our Toymaker badge and our World Cultures badge. Activities during January included making toy rattle snakes, icing US state flags onto cakes and biscuits, painting giant Girl and Brownie Scouts and playing games.

We made native American style headbands and necklaces, Turkey napkin holders, and Thanksgiving place cards. We then sang some thanksgiving songs and ate a thanksgiving feast which included candied butternut squash, sweet potato pie and corn on the cob.

16th March: Girl Scout Badges

One of our older brownies helped to organise and ran the meeting this evening. We started by making craft foam Girl Scouts. We then tried a clause from five different Girl Scout badges and added a mini badge to our craftfoam Girl Scout each time. We made a clay pot, an origami tulip, a fake fossil, tried some acting games and investigated some optical illusions.

23rd March: Wide Awake Challenges

We began the meeting by making fridge magnets and playing games like Twister. We then played Squirrels. In our sixes we then undertook several challenges and games to test our co-operation and communication skills. The Gnomes did particularly well and deserve a great big - well done! At the end of the meeting we sang The Ants Went Marching and Everywhere We Go.

30th March: Easter

We made Easter bunny cakes, decorated wooden Easter eggs and made craft foam bunny egg holders. We then had a team race where we pushed small eggs along with our noses, played under and over using eggs and egg bowling. We then went outside for an Easter egg hunt. When we came back in we played egg catch and egg tip-it. We handed out the first edition of our unit newspaper - the Brownie Times.
