Juliette Low Bday, Pumpkin Craft

Today's meeting was a Birthday Party celebration in honor ouf Girl Scout Founder, Juliette Gordon Low.  Her birthday is October 31, but our troop will not meet again before her bday, so we celebrated it a little early. ☺

First we had our Easy-Peasy Pumpkin CakeMix Cupcakes.  The girls loved them!

Then we played a Kim's Game of Juliette Gordon Low.  A Kim's game  is where you show several objects to represent a story.  After the story is read, an item is removed from the display, and the girls would have to guess what was missing.  The girls have a great memory because they were good at this game.

We made small stuffed pumpkins today for the fall season and for Juliette's birthday being the same day as Halloween.  A small plate was used as a template to cut circles of orange fabric before the meeting.  During the Kim's game, the moms helped by running some thread around the edge of the fabric circles.  We didn't want any little fingers getting poked by a needle during our activity.

Each girl was given a couple spoons of beans for weight on the bottom of the pumpkin and plenty of fluff they could pick and stuff inside.  We then cinched up the pumpkins a bit and put some glue inside the hole on top and stuck a branch inside.  Then the thread was pulled taught and secured.

Small leaves were cut out of green felt and a raffia bow completed our craft.
