Ornament Patch–BallsQuick View
Brighten up your troop’s holiday with a fun craft project and this great patch from MakingFriends®.com. Your scouts can create hand made ornaments for their families and for service! Host an ornament making event with your local seniors, veterans, hospital or other charity or make them ahead of time and bring along when they go visit. Of course this also just makes for a fun activity during your troop or service unit holiday celebration. Hand made ornaments also make a great fundraiser.
Reverse Trick or Treat PatchQuick View
Reverse Trick or Treating is a fun way for your girls to give back to their community. Visit a senior center, senior living, veteran’s home or hospital. The girls can dress up and hand out candy or treats (you’ll want to check to see if there are restrictions where you are visiting) to the people they are visiting. Maybe end your visit with some fun Halloween songs. When they are done, the Reverse Trick or Treating patch from MakingFriends®.com shows that our girls know even Halloween is a great time to remember others.
Adopt a Grandparent PatchQuick View
Your girls can go beyond a visit to a nursing home, assisted living or veteran’s facility. Help them get more involved by adopting a grandparent. Schedule regular troop visits or write letters so the girls can connect. Plan a few activities. Perhaps a movie or game night will be fun for all. A patch reminds them that they made a connection!
