International Ideas for Thinking Day*
It’s always a favorite Scout Event!
Thinking Day* is often the biggest event of the year for girls. Many councils and service units plan an international event where each troop represents a country that belongs to WAGGGS. Dressed in their international costumes, girls “travel” from table to table and “visit’ each country. They get their passports stamped, and collect a souvenir such as a fact sheet, or pins for swapping. Often there is food to sample and displays to view, with music and photos from the country. MakingFriends®.com has ideas and products to help make your celebration a success.
