Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law.

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

We completed are last two activities for this try-it. Both activities were completed by using markers, crayons and paints. Some of the girls compared different colors available and then mixed them to see what colors they would make.

We also colored pictures and cards for military personnel for the Christmas holidays. We are going to donate them to the Patriotic Sisters of America organization that is out of Freeburg. They send an estimated 30 plus boxes to the soldiers every month.

The girls will also get a chance to spend some of their Brownie. Bucks within the next couple of meetings.

We finished our meeting by completing the Friendship Squeeze.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 5th right after school until 4:30pm.

The girls will be learning about some of the activities to Bridge up to Junior Girl Scouts.

We will be planning a couple of field trips within the next few months. We will send information home soon about each one of them to see if anyone would be interested in attending. Please call if you have any other suggestions for field trips.

One field trip that we can attend is the High School Musical Ice Tour at Scottrade Center. The tickets are around $30. If you would like to attend, please let me know and I can set up a field trip for everyone.

We are asking for a few volunteers to bring treats for our Christmas party on Dec. 19th. Thank you in advance for your help.
