Some of our Brownies haven’t memorized the Girl Scout Law yet – either they weren’t Daisy’s or they just need a refresher – so I made an activity book to help them. These make a convenient and purposeful pre-opening activity. You can check out the PDF here: GS Law Coloring Book
Wow, I haven’t updated in awhile! My apologies! I’ve been hard at work on a website project for my friends carpet cleaning business, working a full time job and getting ready to get my list of girls for the new Brownie troop we’ve formed here. I also managed to volunteer myself for the Communications Coordinator position here in our service unit! Things are about to get very interesting.
I’m getting things together to start our meetings, and of course first we need a parent meeting and a first meeting with the girls, but one of my favorite things from my Girl Scouting days was the investiture or bridging ceremonies!
I was trying to find a stock certificate to give each girl when it came to that time and just couldn’t find one! So I made one!
Check out the results below:
Brownie Girl Scout Investiture Certificate
If you want one customized for your girls, just let me know! I’d gladly help out 🙂
More later! CIAO!
UPDATE: I’ve had so much interest in this project. Please click the links below for the MS Publisher template. Also below is a copy of the Girl Scout Omnes font. I do not have rights to this, I found it as a free download on someone elses blog. Download at your own risk. Thank you.
Welp, I did it. I joined the Girl Scouts as an adult Troop Leader. I’ve got a co-leader and my training is complete. Next is an informal interview and then I’ll be getting my troop number and list of girls.
My mom was my leader from K through 8th grade and I loved it. I hope to give my daughter a lot of the same experiences in life that I was luck enough to have.
Man, I think I just jumped off the deep end though. I really hope I didn’t bite off more than I can chew! 🙂
My daughter is beyond exited. She wants to meet RIGHT NOW! I, however, am ready for a bit more prep than that. I’m going to get everyone on an email list, chat with parents, figure out when works and get things started.
I’m so happy to have an energetic and bubbly co-leader who can help me keep these girls on some sort of track. I can’t wait to see what they want to do and where we can go. I, of course, have already thought of MANY ideas, but I just need to get them all organized and see what the girls actually have in mind.
A ruffled lamp shade in burlap and lace will be my next project. A quick tutorial here but I think I’ll stitch my burlap on and use some lace ruffles in between layers. I can see it in my head. Can you?
