Multi-Level Girl Scout Birthday Party

Girl Scout* Challenges

Multi-Level Girl Scout Birthday Party

Our multi-level (D/J/C) Troop 7011 from El Centro, Ca made “birthday-in-a-bag” pouches that were delivered to a local receiving home for displaced/foster children. They included handmade birthday cards with inspirational quotes and heartfelt notes from “your Girl Scout friend.” They also talked about Juliette Low and what they thought the first GS meeting was probably like, discussed the different ways the GS Law and promise can be interpreted and played a game that encouraged communication, exercise and teamwork. They wrapped up the meeting with a special treat; birthday cake!

Girl Scout Birthday Challenge

We challenged you to complete a birthday related service project by the end of Girl Scout week.

And you stepped up. We had 170 troops participate and 36 posted photos of their project. Troop 7011, shown above, was chosen as the winner of $100 in store credit from MakingFriends.com.

    Here is Multi-level Troop 54321 from Southern NJ. They together Birthday Bags for children and/or their siblings who will celebrate their birthdays while receiving medical treatment at the Ronald McDonald House. The Birthday Bags consisted of several items to throw a party while being away from home. From party hats, to candles and even tablecloths! Our Troop thought these bags would not be complete unless they had some awesome Girl Scout cookies, so they added them too! Troop 54321 is looking forward to delivering these bags to our local RMH and to also do a birthday themed craft with the children while we visit.
    Thank you for this wonderful idea, our Troop loved participating in this Birthday Challenge!

    93Our service unit Lenape Valley GS had a 106th GS Birthday Party for our unit on March 16th. We had a very special Ambassador Girl Scout join us in a sing a long, teaching the girls lots of fun traditional GS songs. We had a swap station with your GS Law swap kit, which was a hit with the girls. We had four stations with games for the girls to play, a selfie booth, a table displaying historic GS uniforms, a table displaying Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and CSA vests filled with patches and badges, a scrapbook showcasing a Bronze award, SWAPS from our troop adventures and the Rock the Mall celebration. We also had a station featuring make your own GS mix, filled with treats, each relating to being in the sister hood of GS, and cupcakes of course! As the service component we filled and made 20 birthday bags filled with a stuffed bear, cake mix, frosting, cups, plates, napkins, blowers, candles, bubble, crayons, a coloring poster and hand colored and written cards from the girls. We had 93 girls register to come and this event was totally funded from service unit monies. Multiple troops came together to host the event, run stations, and it was a great experience to see the girls living the true GS sisterhood, and most of all giving back to the community which is the most important thing we do as Girl Scouts!

    We are a brand new Troop #34410 Buffalo, NY. I didn’t see this project. We taught the girls the history of girl scouts and how old we are. We were also working on International Women’s day so the girls didn’t miss out. Our girls went home with a weekly calendar and did one activity for each day! Our girls did great! We finished with cupcakes!
