Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law followed by a small snack of trail mix.

After breaking into groups, the Brownies discussed the Colors and Shapes Try-It that we are working on.

We completes our first activity by yarn painting. We took a Thanksgiving picture and glued various colors of yarn on it to “paint” it.

The girls also made different shapes using homemade clay. The girls made many different things and had a lot of fun.

The girls will also have a chance to spend some of their Brownie Bucks that they have earned within the next few meetings.

We completed our meeting by doing the Friendship Squeeze.

**Please remember that there is a total of 16 girls registered at each meeting for snack/drinks.
