Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Girl Scout Promise and the Girl Scout Law.

We began our activities by completing an activity from the Manners Try-It. We tried our hands at using chopsticks while eating Chicken Lo Mein. We also ate fortune cookies. Most of the girls did a great job and enjoyed it.

We then began our Eat Right, Stay Healthy Try-It. We looked at different food items and compared labels to check ingredients and which food was better for you.

We also completed a dairy food activity. We enjoyed a scoop of ice cream. We then tried plain yogurt, strawberry yogurt, chocolate yogurt and even cinnamon and sugar yogurt. Most of the girls liked the strawberry yogurt the best.

We will try to complete our food people pictures at the next meeting.

We will also be starting the activities to Bridge to Junior Scouts.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 13th right after school until 4:30pm. We will be back at the school for the meeting.

We will begin the Nut & Candy sale on February 1st. Information will be sent home as soon as we receive it. This sale will help cover the ticket prices to Holiday World in June.

The High School Musical: The Ice Tour field trip is scheduled for March 15th at 7pm. We will be taking the MetroLink from SWIC to Scottrade Center.
