Juliette Low Video on NickJr

While dining last night at one of our kids' favorites, CiCi's Pizza, my girls pointed out this video that was playing on tv about Juliette Gordon Low, our Girl Scout founder.  It is a very cute short 1-minute video on how she started our organization.  Click here to Check it out, or click on the picture below.

Pinecones & Respect Myself & Others

Our troop had a fun meeting today.  We started with snack and coloring their own pumpkin pages.  The girls have some creative designs.

We talked about Girl Scout Founder Juliette Low, and how she loved to watch birds.  In honor of  her birthday this month, we made our own pinecone bird-feeders.  The girls first covered their pinecones in peanut butter, then rolled them in bird seed.  A piece of string was tied to the top of the pinecone so it could be hung from a tree branch.

We discussed Respecting Myself and Others today to earn our purple Daisy petal.  We read the story I'm Gonna Like Me by Jamie Lee Curtis, and talked about ways that we show respect for ourself and for other people we meet and know.

The girls then made paper doll friends to demonstrate respect for others.  Some friends looked like us, others looked different, and some had special needs.  They all needed to be dressed and taken care of, so the girls took care of all of them by getting them dressed and looking good!

Our friend Courtney has moved to a new school, and will be unable to stay with our troop this year.  We wish her the best at her new school.  A couple other friends in our troop were not able to attend today's meeting, but will be back next time.  One was sick, and the other had a conflict with a prior commitment.  I will put together a packet of what we did so that they can complete the activities at home to earn their petal.

Today we learned about the Girl Scout Promise and Law.  We made bracelets with the colors of the Daisy petals we will earn this year.  Each color represents a different part of the Girl Scout Law.

We learned our first Daisy song, and the Girl Scout Friendship Circle.  The girls took home their Promise Center patch for their work today.
