The decorations and photo props for Thinking Day Italy style could include famous Italian architecture like the Colosseum, Pantheon and Leaning Tower of Pisa (cardboard cut-outs or girl-made miniatures). For photo memories, the Girl Scouts could pose wearing fabulously fashionable (faux) Dolce’ and Gabbana, Armani and Prada. Other party costumes would include a pontiff-wearing Pope, a troop of Ancient Romans dressed in gladiator garb, and a full team of World cup trophy toting soccer players.
Guests at this fun Thinking Day party would sip Italian sodas through colorful paper straws or grape juice from wine glasses. The main party food would be pizza of course, assembled and served by Girl Scouts wearing white chefs’ hats or traditional waiter outfits. The most authentic of whom would sport a pencil thin, curled black mustaches above her lips and practice a thick accent. The background music for an Italy Thinking Day event would be Italian opera, perhaps the sublime music of Rossini, Verdi or Puccini.
In their own Italian Thinking Day art show, girls of all ages could display their badge work along side of prints by Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and Leonardo Da Vinci. Samples from the Brownie Painter, Junior Drawing, Cadette Comic Artist, Senior Collage and Ambassador Photographer badges would create a multi-media art show.
The finish line at this grand Thinking Day event, could be a mini power-puff derby car race pitting Girl Scout designed Ferrari and Lamborghini against Alfa Romeo and Maserati sports cars.
SWAPs for Italy include soccer balls, tiny paper purses or (Barbie) shoes, the tri-color Italian flag, racing flags, mini postcards and of course mini-pizza pies or slices.
