Sometimes a party is what a gal needs!
At a couple of recent troop meetings we have had some occasions to celebrate. This first was at our last meeting in October, which fell the day before, Girl Scout Founder, Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday. We usually mark this important date in Girl Scout history with a cupcake decorating party and this year was no exception. It was a day filled with a ton of Halloween activities during and after school, so we didn’t meet with our Daisies that day. Therefore, the “celebration” was only marked by our Brownies and Juniors this year, but was still a great time had by all.
Some of these are pure works of art!
Speaking of art…..Additionally, so that ALL we were doing wasn’t just eating sugar, we started working on our troop auction projects by testing different kinds of paints on different types of paper. These swatches will later be used in a couple of projects we plan to add to the auction our school does every year for fundraising. But….even on their own these turned out really pretty!
But….don’t think just because they didn’t get to celebrate JGL’s bday, the Daisies would be without some party fun….As recently mentioned our Daisies completed their Take Action Project by planting tulip bulbs in the school garden. The girls have now earned the Amazing Daisy Award by making the world a better place and living the Girl Scout Law. To reward the girls and commemorate earning the final award of our journey, they celebrated with a garden party! The meeting was super fun, with the girls decorating their own garden party princess hats, snacking on sweet treats, playing games, and taking home goodie bags.
