Juniors craft with purpose

After a few weeks off for the holidays the Junior leadership decided something fun was in order to get the girls back into the groove of Girl Scouts.  A quick craft was just the ticket!

The girls made slip-proof socks.  They used puffy fabric paint, to paint cute designs on the bottom of plain white athletic socks.  When it dried, it mimicked the sticky dots on the bottom of slipper socks.  They then donated their socks to Mantey Heights Rehabilitation & Care Center, which is a local senior living facility.

This is Barb, she LOVED her socks!!

We leaders were joking around after the Juniors completed this project that a craft that is also a philanthropic endeavor should have a name.  We’ve dubbed it “Craftanthropy” .
