Thinking Day is an annual event held by our Service Unit. Each participating troop picks a country and spends time creating a display about it, including facts about their Girl Scouts/Guides, samples of food and fun SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallit Adoringly Pinned Somewhere). Our troop is a multi-level and is HUGE, 40 girls, so this year we decided it was easier for each level to do their own display. We kept all 3 displays in the same region of the earth, so they kind of tied together. Daisies did a fantastic display for MEXICO, Brownies did EL SALVADOR and Juniors rounded it out with a very full display of GUATEMALA.
SWAPS – Mexico was a maraca made from a wooden bead and golf tee. El Salvador was a friendship knot tied with ribbon in the colors of the country’s flag, Guatemala was a tamale.
* A couple of girls started the year with our troop were adopted from Guatemala so we are VERY thankful they were still willing to share all of their memorabilia for our display.
