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 My Body Try-It that we are working on.

We completed all of the activities for this try-it. We started with groups stories with the Daisy troop. Almost all of the girls stood up and told everyone about a dream that they had or told another story.

We then exercised our facial muscles by making funny faces. We seen some really goofy faces.

We also felt the reaction in our arm muscles when we tried to lift up our arm while it was being held down by another person.

All the girls had fun with body volley. We took balloons and hit them in the air with different body parts like head, hands and elbows.

We finished our meeting by completing the Friendship Squeeze.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 19th right after school until 4:30pm. It’s our Christmas Party!!!

Everyone is welcome to bring something if they would like. We will be playing some games, completing a craft and having some refreshments. The girls will also be spending their Brownie Bucks.

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

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.
