Investiture, Rededication & Money Counts

We had our investiture today to officially welcome Sydney to Girl Scouts.  We had a rededication ceremony to reaffirm our returning girls to scouts too.

Each of our girls has a votive candle with their name on it.  We reuse these candles at each of our ceremonies.

I have a copy of an older GS Ceremonies booklet from the Girl Scouts Delaware-Raritan, and pulled from there to create today's ceremony.

After our ceremony, we worked on the Daisy Money Counts leaf.

We followed the the first two activities outlined in the Daisy GS Guide.  We laid out different coins and discussed their value and how they equate to paper denominations.  The girls also received a Money Worksheet, found from Troop 500.

The last activity was assigned as homework for the girls.  The task was to determine how much things cost.

Budget Cards worksheet given as homework.

The girls were given Budget Cards (also found from troop Troop 500) worksheets to take home. Their assignment was to price out the cost of a few activities that we could do as a troop with the cookie money we will be earning. Their parents would assist them with this.

The girls went home with their first leaf petal for the front of their vest!
